Editorial Reviews

In a studio, far, far away in a place of mountains, snow and northern lights there exists a workout like no other... and it is known throughout the land as Buns of Steel! This incredible lower body program was created by Anchorage Alaska Hip Hop Aerobics Club owner / instructor Greg Smithey, as an alternative to traditional aerobics programs. It's a typical night at the Hip Hop. The parking lot is full. A sign hangs on the door to the studio..."Sorry class is full." Inside, around a hundred men and women, young and old, eagerly await the enterance of Dr. Buns, Professor of Bunology, Prince of Pain and Master of Masochism. In a few moments the wait is over and the fun begins...the Bunmaster appears...a cassette tape in one hand and a long leather whip in the other (it's only a prop!). After a few minutes the class is aroused from their sitting positions as a few instructions and appropriate warnings are given to first time visitors. It takes only a few moments before the entire class is up and roaring with enthusiasm, hands clapping, and bodies pulsing to the excellent upbeat music from the four large speakers overhead... The warmup has begun and soon everyone will be back on the studio floor feasting on a menu of lower leg, hip, thigh, and bun exercises delightfully prepared and enthusiastically served. The studio lights are dimmed, the stage is lit and for the next 50 minutes the Bunmaster goes to work...encouraging and motivating everyone through each of over 50 seperate exercises designed to sculpt and strengthen the lower legs, hips, thighs and buns into submission. Throughout the studio the Bunmaster's voice can be heard... "beautiful legs...beautiful legs...work those beautiful legs....and don't forget to squeeze those cheeseburgers out of those thighs and that carrot cake...and those french fries!" When it's over, everyone, without a doubt knows what it's like to experience the incredible Original Buns of Steel workout!!!

Originally made in the 80s, this video is NOT for you if you care about the appearance of the video and the participants. Sweat bands and leg warmers (and even Jheri Curl I think) abound. And Greg Smithey can drive you CRAZY if you don't mute him or just enjoy the laughs. ("We're going to squeeze out that cheeseburger and that carrot cake.") All that said, I have to say that this is hands down one of the best work out videos ever made (and I've tried a lot) to get your thighs and buns in shape--rock hard and very strong. You can order the DVD directly from Greg Smithey on his web site for only $14.95, so don't pay more than that. I like the DVD cause you can skip the aerobic part (I honestly have never done this part) and start with the floor exercises. I am a mom of 4 and I homeschool, so I have to keep my workout very brief or it just won't happen, so I do 1/2 of the floor exercises one day and the other 1/2 the next, both equaling 18-20 minutes each. The first 1/2 is outer thighs, second 1/2 inner thighs and buns. (I also skip the end ab work; I prefer pilates/ And I do that on alternate days. And I do arm work--push ups and free weights--on my own on days when I have the extra 5 minutes.) And still, after almost 2 years of doing this once a week (okay, some weeks I missed) this workout is still a little tough, in a good way. (If you're new to these exercises, I encourage you to just do as many reps as you can of each, but stick with it and you will see your reps improve.)
This video and a few others (Pilates: Abs Workout;

This workout was done way back in 1987 and it looks like it. The music is really bad and the clothing is even worse. I think that there was a guy with jheri curls in there! Anyway, even though the video is dated, the workout is excellent. Beginners probably will have a hard time completing the video, but it gets a bit easier when you do it on a consistent basis. I could not even lift my legs the first time that I did this workout. Nowadays, the workout is still very intense, but it is not as intense as the first time that I did it.

So far the ONLY video that I EVER gave a 5 to in my life, has cheesy 80's music, mullets galore, and is led by Chuck Norris's feminine doppelganger, the lovable Greg Smithey.

The Original Buns of Steel is an unintentionally campy video that came out in the 80's made me lose a pants size in a week despite my terrible diet of all-you-can-eat cereal, sugar and froyo. That said, It took discipline to lay there on the mat and do leg lift after leg lift while feeling like my butt was on fire. Just when you're about to give up, Greg Smithey busts out with "We're gonna squeeze those cheeseburgers out of those hips, yeah!" And he means it. Greg seems sincere. I don't want to let him down so I finish the video.

There's a warm up & arm workout that I usually skip, the rest is all mat work. However, I happen to like exercising while laying down (that's what she said) and I've never had results like this from any other workout. I have tried everything, as you will see when you read the rest of my upcoming reviews.

I'm short. My legs look short when they are not in shape. This video made my legs look better than they have ever looked (my legs didn't look this good even when I was in a ballet company!). No lunges, no squats, no equipment, just you and a mat or a towel to lay on.

Once you learn the moves, you can even play your own inspiring music, such as "I like Big Butts" by Sir Mix-a-lot or "Push It" by Salt `n Peppa.

Sadly, I had to cut back a lot on doing this video because the nerves in my outer leg would burn at night and Buns of Steel made the burning more frequent. The nerve issue in my leg existed before Buns of Steel. Buns of Steel did not cause the Meralgia Paresthetica. Don't ever be a ballet dancer. Your feet and legs will thank you someday.

This is the best video I've ever used. The moves are easy to follow, but they certainly don't feel easy. If you want a simple but effective workout, look no further than the original Buns of Steel. Yes, it was made in 1987 and the clothes are terrible. Who cares? This doesn't affect your workout, and in my opinion it adds to the fun! Others have complained about the music, but the beats really help you keep up the pace. Greg Smithey is a wonderful instructor -- he explains the moves well and adds a touch of humor. If you want fast results, buy this video and do it a few times a week. Don't feel discouraged if you can't do all of the reps right away. Just do what you can and it will get easier.

I hadn't realized how out of shape I was until I followed along with this video. At first, there were many exercises I simply couldn't complete, but I made sure to keep moving, and stick with it till the end. The 52 minutes go by quickly.
The best part about this video is that the exercises are easy to figure out. I normally hate aerobics, but the aerobic warm up here is simple and gets the heart pumping right away.
Greg Smithey is friendly and encouraging. I like the ordinary-looking people behind him who are able to keep up without grimacing in pain; that gave me hope for myself. You WILL feel the burn while doing these exercises, but just keep trying and do the best YOU can. They will eventually get easier, and you'll like the results.
