4.0 out of 5 stars Bland but effective April 7, 2010
By nctmac
Verified Purchase
Shape: Best-Ever Hollywood Workout focuses on sculpting/toning. There isn't any cardio, and it lacks variety. The background music is like elevator music. Gunnar Peterson is calm, friendly, and gets to the point. The basic, simple moves are great for the beginner exerciser. Gunner demonstrates the move first, then you start the repititions. The low repititions made me question the effectiveness of this workout, then I woke up sore this morning?! I did all 4 programs using the custom workout option. Continuous play - this may be the first time Shape has made this option available. When bought new, the dvd comes with a slip to mail in & receive SHAPE magazine 1 yr free.

1.This is a SCULPTING workout, no cardio.
2.This was effective for me because I did all 4 programs in sequence.

The only things you need for this workout are dumbells and a mat. Gunner offers modifications for beginners.

The DVD is broken down into 4 programs:

*Total Body Toning 20 min.
*Power Burn 20 min.
*Amazing Arms 11 min.
*Lower Body Blast 11 min.

I'll do my best breaking down each program, please leave a comment if you have any questions =)


WARM UP - 4 minutes
Arms swing foward, then back, then across. Shoulder stretches followed by spiderman stretch, hip flexor stretch, hip opener & IT band stretch (great stretches!). Inner thigh stretch, then roll up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing fancy, just plain and simple toning..... October 16, 2010
I borrowed this dvd from our local library and am considering buying it to add to my collection. I am usually heavier into the cardio exercise, yoga and pilates and know that more toning with weights would be a good addition to my daily workouts. I like the fact that you get 2 20 minute workouts and then two 10 minute segments. That means I can put a shorter segment along with one of my shorter cardio workouts or do a segment after going out walking for a little extra toning. Is it tough? No, not especially, but it is challenging enough-it isn't Jillian Michaels tough, where I feel like I am going to cough up my spleen at any moment, but it is effective. He shows you the exercise and you do the moves-they are not complicated but they are effective, getting in, working the muscles and moving to the next group. That I liked. I don't want to do a million crunches-let's do some really effective abs exercises and then move to the next muscle group.

This was my first time doing a dvd with Gunnar Peterson and I was pleased. He is pleasant, effectively cues the moves, has good form but is not chatty. I found his style kind of no frills, just get in, do the moves and move on.

For me I enjoyed the workout and already feel the crunches from doing the moves this morning, and I definitely felt the squats.

In the dvd you will find total body toning-20 minutes, power burn (20 minutes), amazing arms (10 minutes) and lower body blast (10 minutes).

4.0 out of 5 stars Not "Best Ever" but still Very Good April 12, 2010
This is a straight no-nonsense and strength training only exercise video. You need a mat and a set of dumbbells challenging enough to work your muscles, but still keep your form. The warm ups and cool downs are short, but I like how you do stretches as you go through the workout too.

The video is easy to program. The four workout sections are Total Body Toning, Power Burn, Amazing Arms, and Lower Body Blast. If you only want to do one section, you can click the title on the main menu. Click Custom Workout to "Build your Perfect Workout" and link the sections together. You can do any number of sections (1-4) in any order to create many individualized programs. You just click and highlight the section(s) you want to do. You can also learn more about Gunnar by clicking Get to Know Gunnar.

The workout contains 4 workout sections and a Get to Know Gunnar section. In Total Body Toning (20 minute) and Power Burn (20 minute) you use compound movements to work the entire body. Some examples of moves from the Body Toning section are squats with lateral raises, squats with military presses, and planks. Some examples of moves from Power Burn are the Wood chop (while holding dumbbell, move arm from shoulder to across the body to ankle), running in place, and lunges. In Amazing Arms (10 minute) you work all parts of your arm - triceps, delts, and biceps. Some examples of moves are pushups, triceps presses, lateral raises, and bicep curls. The final section is the Lower Body Blast (10 minute). Some examples of moves are power squats and a balance move for which your slowly bend forward as you slowly extend one leg behind you.

I usually prefer cardio interval training. However, I like this no-cardio video as a nice change of pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good workout but bland
I like Gunnar's workouts but this is not my favorite the mood in this video is too bland, there's almost no energy. Other than that the workout itself is very good and easy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Workout, Not Too Taxing
I enjoy this workout. It won't make you he-man but it is good exercise and he uses weights here and there so you can always make it harder.
