Instructor comments:



Excellent form, cues ok, doesn't talk too much. I would definately purchase more workouts from this instructor...oh, and he's definately easy on the eyes, too! :)

Instructor comments: The workout has already been broken down, so I won't do it again. However, let me say that I LOVE this workout. Its kind of like Slim Series light..light in that its 30 minutes instead of an hour or more. It is a non-nonsense straight to the point basic weight traning workout. Lots of reps, common exercises, but still worth your time. Its one of my favorite "I don't feel like working out but I should do something" workouts!
