5.0 out of 5 stars Blow Torch for Your Thighs August 1, 2010
By snk
Verified Purchase
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!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars No Mercy and worth every Penny August 23, 2010
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW May 18, 2010
By aubie
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...!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars If you have bad knees, read this May 21, 2012
Verified Purchase
I was surprised that someone said that these exercises don't hurt your knees because mine were hurting almost immediately after I completed the legs & glutes section. I do believe that these are good effective exercises for legs & glutes(haven't done the abs sections yet) and she does do a ton of reps to the point where you may be begging for mercy depending on your fitness level. But I find it interesting that in her intro, she didn't discuss any of the reasons why she chose specific exercises since she is an exercise physiologist. In Tamilee Webb's The Science of Fitness with Tamilee: I Want Those Buns! [VHS] Tamilee goes into detail about how the exercises in her DVD have been proven to be the best ones to tone up that area, and that's why she chose them. I expected to hear something like that in this one but she didn't spout any scientific basis. Surprising since she's a PhD. Also, she doesn't discuss proper form when doing the lunges and squats which is crucial for not hurting yourself. She just says things like "Go down only as far as is comfortable for you", which I don't find all that helpful. If you already know proper form, this will not be too much of an issue but I think reminders are always appropriate and helpful. If you have bad knees and don't know proper form, you could end up doing a ton of reps that can hurt you. Often, she takes a fast pace with the reps and it's easy to lose form which is what may have happened to me and why my knees were hurting, or it could just be that squats & lunges in general, are hard on the knees (especialy if you already have issues with them, which I do) even with good form. I'm not sure why people thought this workout was so "fun". Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably not for beginners January 29, 2013
By heidil
Verified Purchase
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.
