10 top celebrity trainers share their all-time favorite moves for sculpting amazing arms, legs, abs, and butts.

Target Your Upper Body

Do the strength routine two to three times a week. Add the intervals (see "Your No-Fail Cardio Plan") twice a week, either on the same or alternating days. If you have time, add some additional moderate-pace cardio, such as running, walking, swimming, cycling, or elliptical training, 30 to 45 minutes twice a week.

What You Need

A resistance band or tubing, a step bench or stairs, and a chair or stability ball (Find it all at fwonline.com.)

The move: Band series
The trainers: Rich and Helene Guzman, co-owners of LA Rox
The clients: Sheryl Crow, Minnie Driver, Hilary Swank

A. Chest flye: Tie a resistance band or tubing around a sturdy object at about chest height. Stand facing away from the anchor point, holding one end of band in each hand with feet staggered and arms out to sides, palms facing forward. Slowly bring ends of band together in front of chest, rotating palms down. Slowly return to start, keeping elbows slightly bent; repeat. Do as many reps as you can without losing form.

B. Triceps extension: Untie the band and place one end under right foot, holding other end in right hand. Raise right arm next to head, keeping elbow bent and close to ear. Slowly extend arm, then lower to start and repeat. Do as many reps as you can; switch sides.

C. Biceps curl: Stand on center of band, feet shoulder-width apart. Hold one end of band in each hand, palms facing up and elbows close to sides. Keeping elbows pressed into rib cage, slowly curl hands toward shoulders, keeping wrists straight. Lower and repeat; do as many reps as you can.

I dance with 8 pound weights for 50 minutes. Is this considered a cardio workout?
