Pretty good workout DVD,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Supreme 90 Day System (DVD)
YOU WILL NEED DUMBBELLS AND A BALANCE BALL FOR THIS!!!!! I just started this dvd program, and I already like it. I don't know what comparable programs like P90X are like, but you essentially get a cookbook with a meal plan, and a calendar, and some DVD's. The calendar has the name of a DVD on each day for 90 days. So each DVD has one approximately half-hour workout on it plus a warm up and a cool down, and you watch the same 10 dvd's over and over again in different orders for the whole 90 days, with days of rest thrown in between. Even on the first day doing the chest and back workout, I had to take my shirt off because it was getting soaked with sweat. The workouts are much better than anything I have ever seen on a workout DVD. It's filmed in HD, and the host is very encouraging. It seems like he knows just how hard the workouts are and says the right thing at the right time, like "don't stop now!". The setup on the video is somewhat mediocre; there are about 3 other people doing the exercises adapted for people of different abilities, and they always finish at different times. You will need a light set of dumbbells and a heavy set of dumbbells for the workouts, and a balance ball you can do without, but it's still useful. I bench 185 pounds and squat 265, so I started the workout with a set of 30 pound dumbbells, but the workouts were so intense I had to use 10 pound dumbbells for the light set and 25 pound dumbbells for the heavy set. If you do everything exactly as they do on the videos for 90 days and eat well, you will get results. You don't have to follow their meal plan, just don't eat processed food or fast food often. Eat it about once a week and have lots of carbs and protein the rest of the week. You have to drink lots of water(not too much) and eat less calories than you normally would per day if you're trying to lose weight.

Hi. This year I completed ChaLene Extreme, TurboFire and working on P90x ( my second time) and am starting Supreme 90 in October. Is this workout as weight intensive as P90x or is it more cardio based circuits? Will I lose muscle definition with this program compared to the others or is it just as good at muscle building?
