This is the beginner/intermediate sculpting workout that comes with the target set with 2-20 minute upper & lower addons and a stability ball workout on 1 DVD,andn Total Body Sretching on the other.It is also on Cathe's website with Low Impact Step and has premixes (the Target set has no premixes - but is well chaptered and has Mix & match, and a chapter menu.)
The workout is about 30 minutes and hits every body part. Cathe uses the stability ball for all of the exercises. For squats and lunges, she doesn't use weights (although the stability ball is about 2 pounds) and upper body is worked with dumbbells - except for chest, which she does as pushups with your legs on the ball (I liked doing them this way.) The workout is structured well -- she does on long sets of each exercise (often varying the counts) and she does 2 exercises for each body part. You start standing and end up with floor work for legs and then abs on/with the ball.
The workout is thorough and goes by fast.

Instructor Comments:
Cathe is relaxed, gives good pointers and looks great!
