This is the only video that I have by Jari Love, but it's a great one.

I recommend this dvd as a good one to start out with and to include in your rotations added with cardio workouts of 30 minutes.

Jari keeps things moving a long, so I don't get bored and before I know it the workout is done.

This is the only video that I have by Jari Love, but it's a great one. Ripped is an hi-rep lighter weight endurance workout that runs just under and hour. It is quite similar to the Bodypump workout or classes, which I personally have never seen but have heard they are alike. Jari is exercising along with 3 other exercisers which she refers to as the "Rippers". You will need weights, dumbells and/or barbell, a step or a bench you will need for some of the seated exercises (they use the bench for the lying exercises but I just lie on the floor), a mat if you don't have carpet and Jari also recommends a heart rate monitor. The setting is a bit dark and somewhat plain but didn't bother me. The music is decent, techno would be the best way to describe it.

The warmup I found a little odd, not really your typical warm up, you just grab some weights and go from the start. You do some shoulder rolls while holding a barbell or weights, and then you will so some deadlifts, rows, deadrows, bicep curls, overhead presses and squats. These are all moves you will see in the workout but the weight should be much lighter than what you would normally use.

Then it's on to the workout, Jari tells you what exercise is coming so you can prepare. They also display each exercisers "personal weight load" which I really liked, it gives you an idea of what weights to use which I found very helpful. You start out with squats, a pretty long set with varied counts, 4-4, 3-1. 2-2 and single count. After these you will do a brief set of plie squats before finishing out with another brief set of traditional squats. Chest work is next you will do a short set of pushups, followed by bench presses again with varied counts.

I recently discovered Jari Love's workouts, and I must say, I am very impressed! These are full-body, endurance style weight workouts, meaning that you will do only small number of overall exercises but a high number of repetitions for each exercise. However, unlike with other high-rep workouts, Jari encourages you to lift as heavy as possible, thus making it more likely that you will achieve great results in re-shaping your body.

There are several factors which make these workouts unique. First of all, Jari and her three background exercisers show different equipment options--eg, while Jari is using a barbell, another exerciser may be using dumbbells while yet another is using weight plates or even no weights. Furthermore, their individual weight loads also vary, and these numbers are very helpfully shown on screen at the start of every exercise. Then there is the variety in the exercises themselves. Although only a relatively small number of exercises are performed in each workout (around 12), to make it interesting, Jari is constantly varying the count. She often begins with a slow 4-4 count, moves to 3 up-1 down, then 2-2, etc. Although you will sometimes do over 50 repetitions of just one exercise, the varied counts make the time fly by.

Below are brief breakdowns of each of the three individual DVDs:

Get Ripped. This was the original Ripped workout, and it comes in at about 55 minutes. It is an excellent intermediate-level workout, but it would also be doable for beginners using little or no weights.

Slim & Lean. This second video is more challenging, coming in at just over an hour. Here Jari adds pulsing reps plus higher repetitions of some more challenging exercises, such as lunges and push-ups.

Ripped to the Core.

I purchased this set at TJ Maxx for half the price Amazon has it listed for, and a month earlier then the official release date. I had never tried Jari Love's workouts before but couldnt resist the fast proven results claim on the back of this sets packaging. I got the dvd rotation suggestion off of her website forum so I am still on the Get Ripped routine and I have enjoyed it enough to keep with it. I did watch all three videos and they all look great. I have definately noticed more toning in my legs, thighs and butt - which is what I was hoping for. Jari Love is right up there with Cathe Friedrich in my opinion, but at a much more reasonable price! I would also say I am at a beginner/intermediate level and I have been able to handle the Get Ripped dvd. The other dvds look more challenging, as they should be so you work your way up. Jari recommends changing the number of reps or amount of weight used to keep your body guessing. Lots of great bonus features included also!

I enjoy Jari Love's "Get Ripped" workout a lot. It is a high-repetition, strength training workout. This means you do the same muscle-building exercise for each muscle group many times over and over. It isn't as repetitive as you might think, however, because Jari varies the speed at which you do the moves. I found that this 55 minute workout flew by and left me pleasantly worked out at the end. Jari uses a light barbell and a club-sized step (as a weight bench). One background exerciser uses dumbbells instead of a barbell. If you don't own a step, you can simply do those moves on the floor.

As far as difficulty, I would rate this as an intermediate level. Jari's background exercisers, however, show both beginner and advanced modifications which make it possible for everyone to get a great workout. There is a segment separate from the workout itself that goes over modifications in detail, which is perfect for the beginning exerciser.

A couple of minor details: people who do not enjoy "techno" types of music may be annoyed by the soundtrack. It is definitely different than most of the other music from workout videos I own. I found it to be unpleasant, but something I could live with. Additionally, although this is a total body workout, I thought the section for abdominals was unimpressive. I hate doing ab work and in fact my abs probably are my weakest muscles. Even wimpy ol' me found this section to be too easy even with modification. You may want to add additional abdominal exercises on to your workout.

Overall, this is a great workout that is different from some you may have tried.
