5.0 out of 5 stars Good all round workout November 9, 2010
I really like this DVD. It's not too fast paced or exhausting, yet if you're doing it right, you will be out of breath getting a good workout. I just did it yesterday and I'm definitely feeling it in my chest, shoulders, back and abs.

The DVD consists of a warmup followed by a cardio segment, then 2 supersets, which are 2-3 combination strength exercises which you repeat 3 times. This is followed by a "strength circuit," which is a quicker series of moves, and of course there's a cooldown and stretch. At the end, there's a separate abs section.

I think it's pretty good as a well-rounded strength training DVD. It hits all the major muscle groups - chest and triceps (with lots of pushups), shoulders (shoulder press), back (bentover row), core, biceps (curls), quads (lots of squats), and hamstrings (deadlifts). They're all combination exercises, which I are supposed to be better than simple isolation exercises.

The look/feel of the DVD is also really nice. The presenter is this guy who reminds me of a really positive football coach, and there's a chick there for some reason who demonstrates lower-intensity versions of the moves. The music is a nice upbeat pop rock mix which gives it a good feel.

Only negative I can come up with is that the guy really doesn't tell you how much weight to use, but I guess it's pretty self-explanatory (as much as you can handle and still do the routine).

Overall, definitely part of my strength training rotation. It's a bit tough to find strength DVDs that are tailored to men, but this one fits the bill just right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lean muscle December 22, 2010
Verified Purchase
This is an intense workout that is good for building a lean muscular body with a flat stomach and gaining strength. However, if you are after building muscle mass to get big, then this DVD is not for you. But if you want a lean, ripped body, it will help you achieve your goals if you follow it through.

5.0 out of 5 stars straightforward workout July 11, 2010
By Feles31

I would consider myself at an intermediate level of fitness. Great format and production quality. I have steadily increased the amount of weights I use and get a great workout every time. This has turned out to be one of my favorite weight workouts. Really like this instructor --- am hoping men's health will produce more of these workouts with him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Workout! October 7, 2011
By BookNut
Simply one of the best workout DVDs I've seen. At an intermediate level it enables me to get my heart rate up with a good sweat while working all the major areas.

A special note for those with back problems. I have two herniated disks so I have to be extra cautious as to what I attempt. I started off slow and cautious and have inserted the "Cobra" yoga posture at the end of each set. For me this modification has worked out very well. I have been able to move from 5 to 10 to 15 lb with no problems and will be moving to 20 lb on each dumbbell next week.

I started in March and it is now October of the same year so I think this 8 month span of interest shows that this DVD is still enjoyable to follow and doesn't drive a person batty.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Workout February 16, 2012
By Dave
Verified Purchase
I've been doing the workout a few times a week for about a month now, and it's pretty good. It works both the upper and lower body and gives you a chance to start out slow if you're out of shape and challenge yourself more as you practice. My only real complaint is that it places the abdominals section at the very end of the video as a "bonus" section. It's kind of dumb because it comes after the cooldown, so you have to skip the cooldown section and then go back if you want to incorporate it into the rest of the routine. Other than that, this DVD is pretty good for someone who is just getting back into shape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good short workout April 29, 2011

Nice quick workout, good instructions and good form, with emphasis on safe performance of exercises. Exercises are standard and straightforward, with some nice small variations, for example in push-ups go halfway down and hold, then go all the way down and hold and then go up.
