WELCOME TO THE INTERMEDIATE SERIES

If you’re working out 2-3 days a week at a moderate intensity, choose the Intermediate series.

Some of the exercises will use a chair. Make sure the chair you are using does not have wheels. If it does, lean it against a wall or stable surface so it does not slide. If a sturdy chair is not available, we recommend that you use a sturdy desk, table or bench. For demo purposes, we will be using a chair.

Don’t forget to hydrate with water every 10–15 minutes during the workouts, especially on cardio days!
