The book features exercises for all levels of fitness, from beginner to advanced. Each exercise is clearly explained with step-by-step instructions and photos that show proper technique. qWeights for Weight Loss'sq specialty programs include qThe 10-Minute Body Blitz, q which hits all the major muscle groups; qThe 30-Minute Cardio Circuit, q where exercises are performed at a fast pace with no rest in between; and qThe 30-Minute Super Sculpt, q where heavier weights are used for three sets in a row to exhaust muscles one at a time.The book features exercises for all levels of fitness, from beginner to advanced.
