CALORIE BURN: I'll begin with this, considering that's typically why we all buy the dvd, is it not? (Well, you do get a health boost as well...)and I own all the Biggest Loser dvds for a good comparison. I wear a bodybugg (the black arm band you see on the contestants of the Biggest Loser with a monitor attached) to measure my daily caloric expenditure with the most accuracy. Because of this, I am also able to monitor how many calories I burn during a specific workout and how many calories I burn per minute of a workout and how much my calorie burn increases after the workout. I mention this only so you know what I say is based upon scientific measurement, rather than perceived exertion. And this dvd is a high calorie burner! I have quite an extensive library of dvds to compare it to since I use fitness dvds exclusively to get my workout in 6 days a week. This is a new favorite and truly, offered great strength, toning, and calorie burn. You won't help but get results here. While some of her dvds have more cardio to burn more calories DURING the workout, because of the good strength training, and "HIIT" training, you will burn more overall with this one. (see my notes under "effectiveness" as to why) It did, however, burn less than her "Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism" and "No More Trouble Zones" dvd.

EQUIPMENT NEEDED: one set of 1 to 10 lb hand weights, based upon your level, if you have a hard floor you may also want a mat for pushups etc. on the floor

EFFECTIVENESS: The beauty of this dvd is that it's not just cardio but, instead, a full circuit workout. Actually it's a "HIIT" workout which is a model for highest calorie burn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winning workout from Jill December 3, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of Jillian's workouts so I was so excited to try this new one out. And as always, she did not disappoint. I was a little leery at first, because I've never found The Biggest Loser series of workouts to be as challenging as Jillian's other DVD's (BFBM, No More Trouble Zones, 30 Day Shred). I did the whole DVD (about 55 minutes) and my heart rate stayed up and she kicked my butt. The cardio portion was non-stop- 30 seconds of cardio (most of it plyometrics) followed by 30 seconds of a strength move for that entire 25 minutes. Of course there are the usual jump rope and jumping jacks, but she adds variations of these moves to keep it interesting. The plank jacks and the mountain climber/plank jack combo at the end were killer!
Upper body has lots of plank moves/pushups, along with weights- my shoulders and triceps were fried just using 5 lb. weights. It's only 10 minutes, but there is no rest and she really burns those muscles out.
Lower body, again (thankfully) is only 10 minutes. Every variation of lunges and squats that you can possibly do in 10 minutes, and I was really "feeling the burn" in my quads by the end of it. And just when you think your legs are DONE,she finishes it with jump squats.I know I will be feeling this one tomorrow.
As for her demeanor and language, c'mon people it's Jill!! I personally find her "bully" attitude to be motivating and inspiring. Just look at the results she gets on the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whew! This one is tough! December 2, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I completed this entire DVD yesterday and I feel it today! Did I sweat?? Yes!! The workout is really tough and although there are beginner modifications, I would rate this DVD for an intermediate and up exerciser.

Here's what I liked:

1. I liked the ability to pick just one workout or complete the entire DVD. The workout starts with a Warm-up--the cover says 5 minutes, but I timed it with my HRM and it ended up being closer to 7 minutes.
The next section "The Last Chance Workout" consisted of 5 (five), 30 second circuits. The circuits switched between cardio and upper/lower body strentgh training moves. Even though the strentgh training moves we slower, my heartrate still stayed in the aerobic zone the entire time. The cardio moves were high and low impact--they included jumping jacks, jump rope, squats, kickboxing, etc. The strength moves included the regular upper/lower body moves with lots of push-ups and planks and variations of both thrown in for good measure...I found them to be the most difficult. This section timed out for me at 26 minutes while the cover says 25 minutes
The Upper/Lower Body sections (10 minutes each) were again the regular strength moves (lunges, squats, bicep,shoulder, triceps) with variations thrown in..all over a very good hard workout.

I wasn't really happy about not being able to program the DVD like the other Biggest Loser DVD's in the past. Usually, I can pick one or more sections, add them together and then have a specific perosnal workout. This DVD allows the user to pick one/all or a preprogrammed workout.

I also wasn't very happy with some of Julian's language. I am very far from a prude, but to me, calling a client "my bitch" is just unprofessional.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this workout! January 5, 2010
By Stella
Format:DVD
I almost didn't get this video because of some of the negative reviews. But A. Chandler's (incredibly helpful!!) review convinced me otherwise. She's burning more with her bodybugg? I'm in! That's what it's all about. Burn those calories, tone my body, feel and look great! But do the whole video with the toning sections, the workout is only 30 minutes. Do "Play All" for a great workout.

For starters, if you're looking to start a fitness program, I wouldn't start with this. Because of some of the negative reviews - not hard enough, contestants not doing moves correctly or in sync - I would recommend starting with the 30 Day Shred. You will learn most of the moves properly, and you will learn how to intensify moves when you're ready, therefore it will never be 'easy' unless you let it be.

To address some of the negatives:

It's not hard enough. Hmm. It's as hard as you want it to be. I intensify any where I can. Instead of holding the weights, I curl. Instead of just holding my knee up (I think it's circuit 4) I extend the leg with my curls. Still too easy? Get heavier weights. These are things you learn from 30 Day Shred. I also have Banish Fat and No More Trouble Zones.

Contestants aren't moving correctly or in sync. Well, maybe not. But, they're up there doing it. I really don't get a fitness video for entertainment, I get it to guide me. You shouldn't be doing that much watching, you should be focusing on your workout and the muscles you're working. Again, don't use this video for starters and you'll be ok. I love that the contestants are on the video. Whether they're right or wrong in their moves I don't care. They motivate me. Look at Danny in this video and look at him at the end of the show. It's amazing!

4.0 out of 5 stars It's okay, but not my favorite
This is pretty challenging (And I'm in very good shape!) and a really good cardio workout. I find that I enjoy toning/muscle building workouts to cardio. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I was looking for.
Exactly what I needed since it contains participation levels from beginner to advanced. Be forewarned that this is an hour-long workout if you do all the circuits.
