Bob Harper Exclusive: Inside Out MethodPosted on May 17th 2010 11:00AM by Nicole Dorsey-Straff
He combines drills for athletic performance and metabolic-enhancing techniques (i.e. intervals and circuit training bursts) that will help you drop pounds, sculpt the leanest muscles and accelerate training results. "I created these workouts to speed fat-burning and to target the abs, arms, chest, back, legs and glutes," Harper said on location. "Create the body you always wanted this summer -- no more excuses." His backup team actually cried during a few of these tough exercises.
Pre-orders for these DVDs begin today (with shipment starting June 8), exclusively at www.mytrainerbobdvd.com. The first title in the series -- Pure Burn Super Strength -- will be available at Target in July, and released nationwide October 1. Just in time to shape your own bikini body, try these vigorous routines and remember ... you've been warned!
Pure Burn Super Strength ($19.99 for 60 minutes)
Harper called this his "Get Cut Revolution" for the upper body, lower body and core, and it involves "35 power surges," dynamic moves that work at least three muscle groups at once at a quicker tempo than usual to rev your metabolism to shed pounds quicker. Includes a 25-minute Beginner workout and the full 60-minute Challenge; dumbbells needed.
Body Rev Cardio Conditioning ($19.99, 60 minutes)
"Your heart is the most vital muscle in your body, the engine that helps you burn more fat," Bob said as he led explosive, non-stop sports drills that get your heart rate soaring to improve your fitness level, rev aerobic endurance and burn fat faster. Includes a specialized 25-minute "Lower-Body Burn" in addition to an hour of advanced heart-rate training.
Yoga for the Warrior ($19.99 for 60 minutes)
This isn't anything like the Sun Salutations you've done before. This is extreme yoga where Harper even adds weights to Warrior poses and does repetitions of Crescent Lunges and other standing postures. "Strenuous, maximum output elevates body temperature and blasts more calories, which then releases toxins and helps build immunity, health and flexibility," Harper explained on set.
My Free Workout (bonus!)
Harper finally shows his own customized body-sculpting regimen for the abs, legs and glutes. You can buy all four workouts for $35.99 at Target, and they will serve as your summer emergency countdown regimen – no gym required!
