5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent weight workout for the upper body December 8, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I really like this video. It uses weights and/or barbells and targets specific upper body parts. It's a no nonsense video. The routines are challenging with 12 repetitions and 3 sets of most exercises but you can make it work for you by decreasing/increasing the weights you use. The video requires a bench that you can sit on and also use to lie on for a couple of exercises. I use a step with two risers and a chair for the seated work. I use a barbell and two different sets of weights since I can use a higher weight for the bicep work but need to decrease for the shoulders. Cory's workout partners show various possibilities for what you can do. There is a short warm-up and cool down as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Workout for Most Anyone! June 14, 2000
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I was afraid this would be too difficult for me but was pleased to discover it was fast paced and was an absolutely wonderful workout.
Age doesn't matter with this workout. If you're a woman of a "certain age" or a man of middle age you'll get a lot out of this video. And it won't hurt you.
Cory carefully instructs you in three sets of each lift and twelve reps. You can use different size weights --- whatever is suitable for you. And you can use dumb bells or a bar bell for all but two exercise. For those two, I made up my own routine based on routines for the triceps.
I found this video to be easy to follow and found Cory a delight. You can go at your own pace and improvise where you must. But believe me, the next day you'll know you had a workout. And you'll look forward to the next.
I highly recommend this video. And I'm hard to please when it comes to exercise videos. Most I do once and that's it. If you want to gain muscle and/or strength or simply get fit, you need this tape.

After working out my upper body at a beginning level for quite some time, I was finally ready to move on to something more challenging. Although Cory's workout was highly recommended, I was a little nervous about working out with a former Ms. Olympia. I need not have feared, however; the workout, while quite challenging due to the high number of repetitions, is also quite accessible to various exercise levels. Even most advanced beginners would be able to make it through this routine using lighter weights and completing less sets of each exercise. Furthermore, Cory is extremely non-threatening; rather, she's a smiling, laughing "workout buddy" (her words).
After a brief warm up (3 1/2 minutes), the routine is divided into three sections: shoulders, biceps/forearms, triceps. Each section starts with a strength building move, which means 3 sets of 12 repetitions using the heaviest weight you can manage. For shoulders, it's the shoulder press, for biceps, the bicep curl, and for triceps, it's a lying tricep extension. Next comes a "tri set"--3 different exercises, each performed for 12 repetitions, and then the entire series repeated twice (3 times total). I generally lose light weights (5 lbs.), but I often have to sit out a few repetitions in order to keep pace with Cory. A brief stretching segment is a nice conclusion to this tough workout.
Cory uses various equipment, including dumbells, barbells, and an exercise bench, but I've been able to get by with dumbells alone and no bench (I use a chair or the floor instead). Clocking in at exactly 30 minutes total, this is an excellent, challenging workout for the entire upper body.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have Tape! December 25, 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is THE tape that will change the shape of your arms. It's hard, and it works. The good news is that it goes by pretty quickly -- instructor Cory Everson doesn't waste a lot of time. She gets right down to business, and in about 30 minutes, your arms are PUMPED. Extremely challenging, but well worth the time. You need a couple of sets of dumbbells for this tape. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exellent storyline and action-packed June 20, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
I happen to be a big fan of the Final Fantasy game series, and this is a perfect movie translation. The movie is based on FF5 (I've never played it, but it looks cool). I don't know how they managed to put a LONG game into a two hour movie, but they did, and they did very well. If you like Japanese Animation movies, or are a fan of the game series, this is a fantastic choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent focused workout! June 29, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I really enjoy this tape. Cory Everson's personality really shines through as she encourages you to complete each segment of this tape. A 3 minute warm-up preceeds segments devoted to shoulders, biceps and triceps; a short cool-down follows. She counts out each set for you, goes at a pace which is challenging without being too hard for us non-Ms. Olympia types, and explains why you are doing each exercise, the exact muscles you are targeting and how to vary the exercise if your goal is to gain muscle instead of define it.
A good, solid workout which is easy to follow with some motivating chatter but not too much. Just what I wanted!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best upper body workout June 20, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I have been an avid exerciser for about 18 years - it's routine for me. During that time I have viewed a lot of exercise videos. Cory's videos are absolutely the best. This upper body workout is intense, but not to the point that you become dismayed and want to give up. I have noticed more sculpting in my arms after just 2 weeks (and I have been doing weights for a long time!) There is a bit of fluff in her videos, but in my opinion, it just makes it more interesting and engaging. The important thing is that the workout is serious and is obviously choreographed by someone who knows a great deal about fitness. I highly recommend this video for a great upper body!
