3.0 out of 5 stars Two Workouts from Firm Parts March 19, 2003
This DVD is a combination of The Firm's Upper Body and Standing Legs workouts. There is also a bonus feature included, The Firm's Bonus Fitness Training Program. This bonus program explains the physiology behind using weights, and discusses the importance of good form in performing sculpting exercises.
The Upper Body workout is a spliced combination of older firm workouts. From the leg warmers, Greek-inspired statues, and hairstyles you will note the age of this workout - the entire look and feel is 80's inspired. The music, as well, includes saxophone and synthezied pieces that are reminiscent of the decade of big hair.
The Upper Body workout itself runs for 35 minutes. There is a total of 11 minutes of warming up and stretching, 21 minutes of upper body weight work, and 3 minutes of stretching to finish. The exercises included are multiple sets of push-ups, pectoral fly, upright rows, and more. You will need dumbbells (3 - 15 pounds) for this workout. There is no ab work included.
The Standing Legs workout is also pieces out together of older, 80's style workouts. The workout runs for 42 minutes and includes: 8 minutes of warming up and stretching, 30 minutes of heavy lower body work, and 5 minutes of stretching at the end. There is no ab work.
The Lower Body segment uses dumbbells, The Firm's Fanny Lifter, and optional ankle weights. The exercises will be familiar to people who have done Firm workouts before: lots and lots of Leg Press step-ups onto the Fanny Lifter, lunges, knee lifts, and more. This is a difficult workout, sure to challenge any level.
The DVD has a Scene Selection feature, so you can skip over any segments that you do not want to use. However, if you select "Play Workout" from the Main Menu, you are subjected to a Firm commercial each workout you use.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's an Oldie....But a Goodie (Standing Legs Only Review) February 22, 2010
By lizo
I've been doing Standing Legs for 20 years! It's a compilation of Firm volumes 1-6 VHS -- yes, videos. Standing Legs is the toughest "tape" I've ever done in the series. It gets the job done! Break out the leg warmers and take a trip down memory lane.

5.0 out of 5 stars it works... June 2, 2005
i began using standing legs 7 months after my second child was born. i had lost all my baby weight after baby #1 without working out, but it wasn't the same after #2. i used it 2 days a week- t & th, and used another firm dvd m,w,f, and after 7 months of faithfully using it, there was a considerable difference. sure, the outfits were cheesey. sure the music is not the greatest. but i didn't get this to be entertained. that's what movies are for. i had to really concentrate on the moves and for the first month on not passing out. but let me tell you- it really worked. now after baby #3, i am excited to know that standing legs is on dvd. my first was on tape and with no vcr, i've had to make due with other dvds that just didn't cut it. i will be sure to add this to my collection but, unlike the others, i will be using this.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's tough!! January 10, 2006
Some people complain that "The Firm" instructors are cheesy ect., but most all workout videos have some annoying factor to them like that. I have had this video for about a year and a half. I got it in a four pack with the 5 Day Abs and Tough Tape 2. I find that sometimes, if my arms are tired, or have been injured in some way, I can use the Standing Legs DVD to give them a break. The same in reverse, if my legs are sore, I can use the Upper Body DVD. I think that the leg presses are tough and sometimes, its hard for me to complete this whole workout. If I feel too tired to keep working on mostly my legs, I switch to the upper body for a few minutes, then switch back. When I use this video, I only use it if I feel strong and ready for something tough! I'm always trying to remember to breathe out when I lift up the weights, and that helps make it work better and be more aerobic. I would say, if you don't maind that the people can be irritating, get this DVD. When you get used to doing the moves, you don't even have to look at the people.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but dated workouts February 11, 2009
Verified Purchase
I will start off by saying that Upper Body has always been my favorite Firm workout (and I have owned over 50 Firm workouts). It is good for those days when you cannot stand the thought of doing aerobics or tiring out your legs with lunges and squats. I have probably done this workout at least 100 times in the last 12 years. I originally owned these on VHS, and wore them out.

If you use light weights, UB is a mild workout that still leaves you feeling like you completed something good. If you use heavy weights, you should definitely tire out your lats, triceps, delts and pecs. The biceps work is minimal, though. It is about 35-40 minutes long. But there are plenty of "pre-exhaust" exercises, such as for the triceps, that can make it difficult to work your lats and pecs at maximum weight. The final stretch isn't really appropriate here, as it was not orignally designed for a solely-upper-body-workout, so I would recommend doing your own upper body stretches instead.

On to Standing Legs. This workout was always known as a form of torture to the legs back in the Firm's heyday. It's still hard. But it's not so long that you feel as if you're going to die. With lighter weights, you can still get a great workout and have the chance to develop better form. Heavy weights and your lower body will be screaming. It's about 45 minutes long. The stretch at the end is okay, but not really complete after such a tough workout, as it's only 4 minutes long.

These were filmed from 1985-1993, and it shows. They do look very dated now. Some of the moves, especially in Standing Legs, are jerky. You really have to watch your lower back, rotator cuffs, knees, etc. That is true of weight-training in general, though. Be careful. But that said, these are effective workouts.
