4.0 out of 5 stars Rip: 60 Two Weeks In, July 15, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rip 60 Fitness DVD & Suspension Trainer Set (Sports)
Just completed week 2 of Rip:60 program. I have completed both P90X and Insanity a couple of times and wanted something different. Rip:60 is different. Rip: 60 is a little bit of both programs you get some cardio (Insanity) and Resistance (P90X). I decided to add 15 - 20 miles a week of running for extra cardio.

PROS: Workouts are short approximately 1 hour, the pace of DVDs is great it doesn't feel like an hour. The warm-up (14 mins) and cool-down (9 mins) sections of the workout are the best I have seen on DVDs the straps give you extra reach of motion on your stretches and exercise moves which I like. Intensity of workouts on a scale of 1 to 10 is 6-8 depending on which exercise you are doing, which is why you can repeat them up to 5 times a week; Changing effort level is easy, simply adjust your lean angle up or down; No matter which major muscle you are working with the straps stabilizing muscles are recruited because of the lean angles this is amplified with the rotation exercises beginning in week two. The strap length is easy to adjust and only requires 2 - 3 changes per workout.

CONS: Finding a place to mount the Rip: 60 can be a problem. Mounting on the door was not option for me, not one of the doors in my house once closed leads to a space big enough to do the workouts, remember with the door closed you want the strap to be pulling on the door to keep it closed. I mounted mine on the ceiling of my covered back porch, works great. Make sure you wear long pants or socks long enough to cover your ankles. When doing exercises that involve putting your feet in the handles the material will rest just above your ankles. The handle material while durable doesn't feel good rubbing against your skin. This is not a problem for upper body work since you grab the plastic part of the handles for these exercises.

OVERALL: Rip: 60 is a fast, effective overall body workout. You are not going to get super shredded or massive bulk, but if you are looking for change of pace from P90X, Insanity or any other workout program you are currently doing I would recommend the program. Once I'm done I will do a hybrid program of Rip:60, P90X and Insanity, while I wait for P90X MC2 to come out.
