This workout is rest-based training. You push hard and then rest when you need to, and begin again when you are ready. This is supposed to enable you to work at your level and still work out hard enough to achieve the metabolic effect, a hormonal fat burning state.

Jade Teta leads the workout, but it is demonstrated by Jill Coleman, Fitness Trainer.

The workout is 33:22 min. You need two sets of dumbbells, a heavier set you will try to use for as much of the workout as possible, and a lighter set to drop down to if necessary.

Instructor Comments:
Jade is constantly reminding you to rest when you need to, not when Jill does. And when Jill does rest, he says things like, "That's right, Jill, rest. I want you to rest." He is talking and encouraging you the whole time.
