Product Description

THE OWNER'S MANUAL WORKOUT consists of three 25 minute workouts and a nutrition section. The first routine is for beginners to learn the basics of exercising with hand-weights, focusing on form and technique as viewers get comfortable. The second routine builds on those principles, taking viewers through more advanced exercises and pushing endurance. The final routine changes gears; it is a cardio workout for all levels that focuses on burning calories and building heart strength.

The DVD will also have a raw foods nutrition section that will emphasize the importance of good eating habits. It will teach viewers how to make four simple but delicious and healthy recipes.

i'm a fan of joel's and the "you" series. the other titles have all used your own body weight. this adds low weight/hi reps. it pretty basic stuff but you never stop moving, so you definately will build a sweat. it also has a cardio portion, around 30min. mixed impact, some old school moves....but they work. as always, joel is very encouraging and he know his stuff!

Great hand weight routine. I have three other Joel Harper DVDs and use all of them for exercise variety. I really like how he keeps things going and mixes stretches in with exercises. I am puzzled by why he has the mix of exercises that he does in each video and find that I need to rotate between videos to avoid different parts of my body getting stiff and developing issues. I've also found that Peggy Cappy Yoga videos are a great complement to Joel Harper videos as I get older. Joel harper videos exercise many parts of body really well but don't seem to do anything for forward bends, hamstring stretches, relaxation, and several other things covered in Peggy Cappy videos. At 68 years old, I find that unless I do different kinds of exercises routinely that various kinds of issues develop.
