May’s Top Workout DVD: 10 Pounds Down Total Body Tune Up
Best for: Reluctant strength trainers; circuit lovers.
Why it’s a star: This is one well-rounded DVD! Certified trainer Jessica Smith begins with a nice warm-up, then moves into a 50-minute routine that alternates compound, fast-paced strength moves with quick cardio bursts. A few of our favorite exercises? Twisting curtsy lunges (turn upper body toward your back foot while at the bottom of the move) with an overhead press and burpees with a 180 degree jump in between each rep. Both really get your heart pumping! The program wraps up with a great core routine and cooldown.
Where to get it: jessicasmith.tv, $14.95
