Metabolism magic

If you haven’t heard, strength training is one of the keys to kick-starting a stubborn metabolism into gear. If like me, you are engaged in shaping-up, you may want to check out the Step-by-Step Strength Training with Petra Kolber.Learning the proper form and technique is what affects your results. 

You’ll need hand weights and a chair to follow this effective DVD. Beginners may want to start with lighter weights (three pounds) and work up. It’s divided into two 10-minute segments that target the lower and upper body, and two additional 20-minute segments that offer a total-body tone-up. You can mix and match to get your beach body in no time at all. Bonus Features include: Eight “Before You Begin” tips/guidelines, Eight Bonus Moves, and bonus workouts, including Step-by-Step Belly Dance and Dance and Be Fit: Brazilian Body.
