3.0 out of 5 stars Good ab workout, but sort of a dancey Tae-Bo Lite February 5, 2006
Instructor Catherine Chiarelli takes you through a warm-up, a standing cardio workout and a mat ab workout that felt to me, in places, like Tae-bo Lite. Not that it was like Tae-bo in that it features kickboxing, but in the moves she uses to work the abs from a standing position, several of which Tae-bo fans will recognize. Following is a glimpse of each segment:

Warm-Up: A standard, relatively easy-to-follow cardio warm-up featuring marching in place, step-touch to the side, kickback, V-step, mambo and stretches. The only thing I found awkward was the mambo step. I've done a mambo step in several other workouts and always found it one of my favorites...until now.

Standing Ab Work: Cat focuses on abs at a moderate cardio pace with squats, oblique twists, plies, boxer twists, side lunges, standing side crunches, and upper body twists. If you've done Tae-bo, you will recognize several of these moves. Like Tae-bo, you need excellent balance for this. The intensity was enough to get my breathing elevated and I did sweat some, but not as much as I usually would during a cardio workout. I really didn't feel my abs being worked as much as I would expect in an ab-focused workout. I've only done this workout twice so far, but I am not sold on the benefits of this segment.

Mat Ab Work: Down on the floor, you'll do several variations of crunches, side planks, oblique work, Superman variations, and stretches. It's a silly thing, I suppose, but I really didn't like doing mat work after I'm sweaty from doing a cardio workout (even though I wasn't AS sweaty from this as I would be from, say, Tae-bo). The repetitions here are higher than other ab workouts I've done and, as a result, I found this section tough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice toned abs September 21, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is quite a great dvd and it's intense. There are exercises done standing and on the floor and they all work your abs in every which way. Some of the standing workout also involves squating so therefore it's working your legs too. The floorwork is regular stuff like crunches and side planks, so you aren't bored with all this variety. I love doing this and it should probably be done about 4-5 times a week. The instructor makes this fun to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective Ab Workout! October 4, 2005
When it comes to my abs, I'm used to doing exercises related to dance and pilates. Crunch Ab Attack takes a more aerobic approach, but as I absolutely love Crunch Fitness I gave it a try. This DVD is comprised of both standing and mat work toning, and also touts the benefits of a light cardio workout--so you're burning calories while you tone, all in about a half hour. The instructor's cuing and motivational attitude make the workout fun and over before you know it. I felt it was easy to keep good form during the exercises, and never felt my neck was strained. I actually felt the workout was a little on the easy side (but I'm an avid exerciser, so it will be different depending what level you're at). Whoow! I was sore for two days after the workout, however, and was very surprised to feel the effects across my ENTIRE abs. What really impressed me was how the exercises even got at my lower abs in a way I could feel. (This is one of the hardest areas for women to tone.) This workout really does hit your abs from all angles! Overall, an awesome mix of gentle cardio and a fresh, effective approach to strengthening your core!

3.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to like this... April 16, 2006
By Teedums
...unfortunately it didn't do anything for me and I am one who could use ab work. Catherine Chiarelli leads this 30 minute routine and is joined by several other ladies and one man. You start with a simple warmup consisting of marches, step touches, hamstring curls, v-steps and mambos, then you stretch briefly.

You start with standing work and I agree with the reviewer who called some of these moves "Tae Bo Lite". The moves seen here include torso twists, boxer twists, standing oblique crunches, and clock twists. The boxer and clock twists are done while in a plie squat position, after a while I could feel my legs working pretty hard, but this section didn't do much for my abs, though I liked the moves in general. Lots of squats and side lunges are inserted in between some of the ab work so it breaks it up a little bit.

The floor work I felt more than the standing, but it was still pretty easy. Here you will see traditional crunches, one set of them with legs in the air at a 90 degree angle, oblique twists, double crunches, leg sweeps, side planks with knees bent, lying side oblique crunches and Supermans.

Catherine does an okay job leading the workout, she does offer some pointers and tips throughout, as well as reminding you to breathe. She is in fantastic shape herself, though I don't know if she got those abs doing this workout. The routine itself was unique and interesting, especially the standing work but it wasn't working for me. Anyone whose abs are in decent condition will not be challenged by this workout. Overall I will give it 3 stars for effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll feel it if you focus November 29, 2005
By Dani T
Like any Ab workout with a significant amount of standing work, your focus and form are the key to getting an effective ab workout with this DVD.

I love this workout. The content is great, and the fact that it is short makes it easy to piggy back with another workout. It's really fun to add onto a day of strength training!
