Cathe Friedrich: Slide & Glide

Cathe Friedrich: Slide & Glide is an intermediate/advanced workout DVD. Get superb workouts with low impact thanks to "unique" strength and cardio moves using gliding disks (or paper plates on a carpeted floor). The exercises include the "quick pace" and upper- and lower-body combination moves, like squat thrusts, using gliders under your feet so you slide rather than jump. Workout DVD veteran Cathe Friedrich even incorporates gliders in an ingenious cool-down that allows you to "slide past your sticking point" during stretches.
