Designed specifically for those just starting out with exercise programs – but suitable for all fitness levels – the Absolute Beginners Fitness series contains clear and precise instruction for safe, yet effective, workouts. Utilizing top instructors and proven methods, the Absolute Beginners Fitness series of DVDs are the best way to begin a lifetime of fitness and health. Instructors Jules Benson and Phil Ross make strength training the building block for your fitness future in this lively set of exercises and instruction. Jules and Phil use a series of three segments that will teach you muscle functionality and proper form while giving you the basics of strength training for your arms, legs, and chest for maximum results. An abdominal segment concludes each of the three segments. Segment 1 – Singular Exercise Focus By concentrating on one exercise at a time and moving throughout the entire body, Jules and Phil ensure that your form is maintained and that the efficiency of the workout is maximized. This segment will give you clear instructions on how to incorporate light weights with your exercises. Segment 2 – Supersets and Triple Sets To focus on muscular endurance, this segment has exercises that are done in rapid succession with minimal rest periods. Body parts are grouped together in such a way to tax specific areas, to increase muscular endurance, and to promote overall body symmetry. Segment 3 – Circuit Training The basic exercises from Segment One are done again, this time in rotation with only a very brief rest between the movements to increase the fat burning process, yielding a greater cardiovascular benefit. For the best results - do each segment several times a week for four weeks before moving on to the next, giving your body ample time to adapt to its new strength training regimen. By following this suggested routine, you will develop better form while getting three months of solid training for a great foundation to move on to even more challenging workouts.
