The "Fitness Prescription: Perfect Legs, Glutes & Abs" DVD is your get-fit remedy from America's top expert in exercise science. Dr. Michele Olson is a PhD in Exercise Physiology and a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine for Outstanding Service to Research in Exercise. She teaches and researches exercise every day with college athletes, students and women wanting to stay in shape.    Dr. Olson's approach is straightforward. The moves are easy-to-follow yet definitely challenging. These tested exercises are proven to work even your deepest, most hard-to-reach muscles. The two 25-minute, physique-friendly workouts produce results fast.   "Fitness Prescription: Perfect Legs, Glutes & Abs" uses moves that make a difference in a carefully arranged sequence so you'll feel them working and see results quickly. There are two 25-minute programs. Mega Moves uses the large muscle groups of the legs, glutes and abdominals for improved strength and great tonality. Master Moves works on deep muscle conditioning with challenging and stabilizing moves from the calves up through the waistline. The video also uses the important physiology training principles of unilateral training and muscle failure for overload.  These methods are most efficient way to torch off calories and sculpt a beautiful, lean, fit physique!

This is definitely not a beginner DVD!

The first workout, "Mega Moves" will really get your heart rate up and your legs burning.

The exercise itself is really enough, even without the weights!

I am a 44 year old intermediate to advanced exerciser and often use DVDs by Cathe Freidrich, Jillian Michaels and Jari Love, mixing it up with various other cardio DVDs. Saddlebags and lots of inner thigh fat have always been issues for me and since I've used this for one month, 3 times a week, there are no more saddlebags. And, my inner thighs are down significantly and that area is firm, not like jello anymore. I'm very, very surprised by that because it's gotten semi-firm before but never reduced, not a bit. There is defined muscle on my outer thigh and also starting up the inner lower part - that's amazing.

This DVD is worth buying because Ms. Olson is really on to something, whether it's the exercises and/or the sequencing this is working. The abdominal exercises are tough and also get the job done. I highly recommend this DVD because you really have nothing to lose by trying it but big, jiggly fat!!!!

I work out 7 days a week and have used exercise DVDs for many years (I own about 250 or so - I'm an addict :| - and I always look for the advanced ones) and this workout is incredibly challenging. It is just amazing. It actually works more than what it says. You get some upper body and cardio in too plus there are also some kettlebell moves. A great variety but with lots of reps to really fatigue the muscles (and they will be toast!) and for reasons I can't explain it was fun at the same time. I did it in the morning and by afternoon my buns were screaming. If you're looking for a challenge this is the one to get.

I may want perfect glutes,abs and legs, but it will never happen. But doing this workout I come very close with Dr. Olson's instruction. If you do this workout 3 times a week you will change your backside. The instructions are percise and show the Dr. Olson researched all the exercises before attempting to direct the DVD. This DVD is not the normal run of the mill DVD. This is a world class workout.
Dr. Olson is a professor and writes numerous articles on exercise. Excellent...!!!

Absolutely one of my favorite exercise DVDs for hitting trouble spots. My legs are burning after both workouts! The abs section is really effective, more than pilates. I have seen fast results in seat and thighs and huge differences in how clothes fit. Straight forward exercises, which are well explained and challenging to do. The time flies by. The moves alternate between slow and fast speeds that increase heart rate, yet don't feel frantic. Must buy.

I have been exercising for a while now [running, yoga, kettlebells, Insanity, p90X, etc.] and wanted something to target my legs. I had been doing Brazil Butt lift for about a year and not getting the results I had hoped for, so ordered this seeing that it was reviewed as an advanced workout. That it certainly is! I now combine this with Brazil Butt Lift, and am noticing the muscles and tone in my legs much more now after about a month than I had with other programs.

There are 2 separate 30 minute sessions [and I enjoy doing one right after the other for a good hour of leg training, 3-4 times per week]. The first workout, "Mega Moves" will really get your heart rate up and your legs burning. You'll do a series of [many!] squats and lunges, with and without weights. I work up quite a sweat by the end of this one - it's a great cardio workout. The second workout, "Master Moves" is a little less on the cardio and has you work more on your stabilizing muscles by having you do more balance work. The two combined provide a great and challenging workout for the entire body.

I have to say, most trainers out there have a group of people behind them doing the moves so that they can stop to talk while not doing the whole workout, so I was impressed that Michele Olson is by herself and is able to talk the entire time without really looking out of breath despite all the hard work!

In addition to the awesome leg workouts, the ab routines are up there with the tougher ones I have done. Definitely not for the beginner, as even I have a hard time doing every move for the entire duration!

Overall, this is the most challenging leg and ab workout combination I have come across.

This is a hard workout, it really concentrated completely on your lower half, my legs were screaming at the end of if. I am in excellent shape and I really couldn't do some of the abdominal work, I would definately recommend it. I would say that it is probably not for beginners though.

Love it!!!

The dvd has 2 leg/glute workouts, and 2 ab workouts (called Mega and Master routines). Though I'm in reasonably good shape, I found all the workouts challenging - especially the leg routines.

The leg workouts are standing leg routines (no floor work), last about 20 minutes and involve creative squats, plies, leg lifts and lunges, often alternating fast with slow moves. The only equipment needed is a chair, and light & medium weights. The ab workouts last about 5 minutes and involve creative crunches and leg lifts (no planks). The set design is nice and bright and Dr. Olson's cuing is great.

The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that I found the Mega leg routine to be oh-so-boring, with endless squats & lunges set to repetitive music. I had to stop after about 12 minutes as I'd had enough (I still got an awesome workout however)

I haven't used the dvd enough yet to see results, but from the way I feel after each workout, I'm confident I will!
