Format: DVD
This is a good, heart-rate lifting, sweaty workout. The moves include a lot of floor work (pushups, squat-thrusts/burpees, planks - on hands, elbows, and alternating), some moves with weights (which can be done without weights, if desired), jumping jacks and some other plyo moves, lunges, squats, marching, kicks, and a little bit of standing ab work towards the end. The fit twenty-somethings in the video sweat like pigs, and occasionally lose their form (though thankfully, they aren't the drama queens we see in certain other videos - no exaggerated grimacing or grunting).

I work out almost everyday, and it is a challenging workout with almost no modifications included - and no breaks - it's a solid 45 minutes, including warmup and cool-down. I cannot imagine anyone who is over 200 pounds, has joint pain, (particularly knees), or who is over 40 and beginning an exercise program or returning after years to react to this with anything other than wide-eyed amazement and swift disillusionment. It may be a good "Bob Harper for Beginners" workout, but a real beginner's workout? No, no, and no.

I just got this dvd after ordering it from the websit. I absolutely love it. Another great workout from Bob. This workout isn't really for your absolute beginner. I consider myself a little advanced and felt a little challenged with this workout. Bob keeps you moving throughout the workout; your heart will be pumping. There are some familiar moves and a few new ones. Really liked the "swimming" moves with weights. At 45 minutes this is a good, heart pumping workout. There's also a 10 minute ab workout that I've got to try. Looks challenging enough. Beginners should give it a try. Good also for those of us looking for something different. Definitely recommend it.

"Bob Harper: Beginner's Weight Loss" dvd contains two workouts, Beginner's Weight Loss Transformation and 10-Minute Beginner Abs.

I'll start with the shorter 10-Minute Beginner Abs workout. I found it fairly easy and it was a little different from other ab workouts. I enjoyed it and my abs were sore the next day.

Here's the breakdown.

Ab Workout (10 minutes, 40 seconds)
Stretch (51 seconds)

Here's the Ab workout.

Seated Twists
Kayak Race
Seated Leg Lifts
Seated Leg Lifts
Reverse Core Crunches
Lower Ab Crunches
Oblique Crunches

The Beginner's Weight Loss Transformation, the main workout, is intense and I classify it as an intermediate workout. Heart rate is boosted throughout most of the workout and I was sweating. Six hours later, I was sore. Light to moderate weights are used in slightly less than half of the exercises. Other exercises involve plyometrics (jumping) and bodyweight exercises including various push-up variations. I don't like jumping and I made it easier by walking and I have a piece of equipment which I use to do easier push-ups, (you could do push-ups against a wall or a bench, too).

Here's the breakdown.

Warm up (3 minutes, 20 seconds) Warm up is composed of all stretches.
Workout (38 minutes, 07 seconds) Please see below for a list of exercises.
Cool-down (3 minutes, 27 seconds) Cool-down consists of all stretches.

Here's the workout.

I love Bob Harper, but this is NOT a beginner's workout. I couldn't get through it and got frustrated. I need a beginner's to get me going, but this isn't it. Eventually I can work up to it and keep it in my collection, but definately not beginner!

Let me start by saying that I am NOT a beginner. So I can tell you with certainty that this IS NOT FOR BEGINNERS. Yes, I am shouting :) However, if you are a beginner, you can still use it if you pay close attention to what I'm about to say.

Women in particular, use no weight or 2 - 3 pound weights for the entire workout the first time you complete it.
Beware of the swimming and butterfly moves. I think it's best to use NO weight for these 2 moves at first.
I recommend the above because most of the moves are done at speed so whether you have worked out before or not, some moves are too fast to maintain good form particularly for a beginner. In addition, the excessive shoulder presses could put strain on your neck. After the first time you do this dvd, you can figure out what weights you need and if you want to switch off for some exercises that's a good idea.

The trainer is a little annoying because he keeps calling it your first "beginner" workout. It's very irritating because it's NOT technically a beginner workout. Other than that, it can be a good workout for someone who has worked out before and will slow down some of the moves and practice good form. It's hard to know how to do that if you have never worked out before. It's clear that "beginner" doesn't necessarily mean that it's your first ever workout, but it could be for some. And remember, trainer BOB insists that it's your first beginner workout, so apparently he thinks a first timer can do it. With this, he should have advised the use of very very light weights and had a modifier.
