I originally bought this as a VHS in a boxed set and fell in love with how hard this video was.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Verified Purchase
I will start off by saying that Upper Body has always been one of my favorite Firm workouts (and I have owned over fifty of them!) It is a good workout for those days when you cannot stand the thought of doing aerobics or tiring out your legs with lunges and squats. I also believe that it's an excellent starter workout for beginners, or those just getting back into fitness. I say this because it's harder to get out-of-breath doing primarily upper body work. If the floor-based work (like pec flyes) are instead done on a workout bench or high, long step, then one can avoid having to get down on the floor. So if a knee injury prevents you from doing that, don't be afraid of this workout! I have probably done UB 200 times in the last 19 years of owning it. I originally owned both of these workouts on VHS, and wore them out. These were filmed from 1985-1993, and it shows in terms of the fashion and hair. That said, they are effective workouts which stand the test of time. It would have been nice if The Firm had also put their 5-Day Abs workout on this one DVD, too. This will not be all that you need, but it's still a good addition to one's workout library.

If you use light weights, UB is a milder 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, but then there's a fair amount of that in most FIRM workouts and so assuming you cross-train, you'll be fine. UB is about 35 minutes long. As an advanced exerciser now, I find a couple of limitations exist with UB. For one, the 35-minute length does fall significantly short of the hour I like to put into exercise a day. I almost never use UB by itself in one day.
