I'm used to Jillian's 6 week six pack but this was definitely a challenge (in a good way of course!)
Bob brings it as usual. Amazing workout!! When I see the people in the video struggling I know I will probably be too (which is good!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Bob Harper does it again!! August 15, 2011
By Jodi
Format:DVD
This is such an incredibly tough workout! Bob starts off a bit easy with deadlifts and twists so you may be thinking this will be easy. Think again! He keeps kicking it up a notch, and you'll be drenched in sweat in no time. Bob says at the end that you'll be cursing him the next morning when you wake up with a sore core. Well, I won't have to wait until the morning....my core was feeling it right away. I thought Jillian Michaels' 6 Week 6 Pack was tough, but this workout puts that one to shame. Bob's workout is slow and controlled compared to the rush of Jillian's workout. If you're looking for a way to really get ripped abs, I highly recommend trying this workout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my poor achy middle-aged abs! August 8, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have two other Bob DVDs -(Inside Out Cardio and Extreme Weight Loss) so I had an inkling that this would be equally tough and I was not disappointed. I was, however, drenched in sweat and thoroughly wiped out by the end of the 50 minute segment. The 10-minute "quickie" is no cupcake either. I plan to use this to supplement my normal routine of cardio/Pilates/weights and hopefully as time goes by I will find this a little easier. Word of caution: if you have any type of knee and/or back issues you may want to modify a couple of the moves, particularly the side burpee and the aptly-named Killer Side Plank Twist. If you want a challenging workout for the core then this is your huckleberry!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great workout, but... November 8, 2011
Format:DVD
One of the things that you need to know when you buy this, is that if you don't already have a mat, you're going to want to buy one. You get sweaty pretty quickly so you're going to want to be able to sweat on something other than your carpet or hardwood floors. You do some exercise where you sit on your butt, roll back to your shoulders, and then roll forward and stand up. This would be very painful on a hardwood floor or thin carpet.

Second, of the 5 people doing the workout, 4 of them were using small dumbbells with most exercises. I didn't have any dumbbells and didn't know I should have had them, but I used 2 cans of coconut water to get me by. You can do it without dumbbells of course, but either way, the DVD should have mentioned it as an optional/recommended item.

I started to do the workout without a shirt on and found myself slipping all over my mat because I was sweating so much (and I workout 5 days a week). I had to pause the workout to wipe off my mat and put on a shirt so I could continue without twisting an ankle.

The people doing the workout struggle, and I felt like I was going to throw-up after about 30 minutes. All-in-all, a very good sign!

DVD contains 2 core workouts, one is about 45 min, the other is about 11 min.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Substitute for P90X Core Synergistics November 16, 2011
By C
Format:DVD
The person who said that if you do Insanity not to do this is wrong. I've done Insanity twice and P90X four times. This core workout does the job if you use enough weight and really go after it. It's a great substitute for Core Synergistics. If you want to work your core, but are tired of watching Dreya or Pam the Blam over and over, give this a try. The price for these videos can't be beat, especially when compared to similar Beach Body videos. Personally, this is my favorite Bob Harper video so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars A steady push, without the ridiculous speed. March 8, 2012
By Sara
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You won't think this workout is tough when you first start, but by a few minutes in you will feel the burn from controlled, slow moves that gain pace as the workout goes along. By the next day? You'll feel it. Two days out? You'll be swearing at Bob with step you take, and encouraged to complete the DVD again.

Others have summarized what exercises are in this DVD, so I won't. I will say that I am generally bored and not a fan of workout DVDs, but I don't have this problem with Totally Ripped Core. I *want* to do it again, because it makes me focus on my core and Bob's workouts are highly effective.

I do wish that the DVD included an alternative to the Rollback Series, as I am not able to do a complete return to standing, especially not in the time allotted. I will keep trying, though, until my core is 'ripped' enough to complete the motion.
Be careful if you have hamstring/groin issues or knee issues while doing the Killer Plank Twists. The first time I did these I was not careful enough about the placement of my legs, and it was painful on my knee. I've gotten better at adapting this to fit my needs. Additionally, the Side Burpees are a bit harsh on the knees, but keep trying!

Make sure that you have some light weights to complete the workout. You can do it without them, but the burn is better if you have them.
