This review is from: Billy Blanks: Ultimate Tae Bo (DVD)
I hadn't done Tae Bo for a while and of course I had to come back with the Ulimate DVD...it's a great workout, but tough!
I exercise with DVD's 4-6 days a week and I am continually looking for workouts that are: 1. More than 45 minutes of continuous cardio, 2. A continuous workout, 3. An intermediate/advanced level workout, 4, Interesting with good music, and 5. enthusiastic instructor. This DVD contains all this and more.
It begins with a "blended" sort of workout, meaning that the warm-up moves straight to the aerobic practice with no big drop in intensity--it slowly builds.
The 90 minute workout would be familiar to all past Tae-Bo users (punches, kicks, slides with punches and kicks, leg liftss, etc), but about midway through, Billy adds a little funky dancing that brought a smile to my face...not really tough, but it was a fun and a change of pace. It was nice to see the exercisers smiling and having a good time.
I would recommend this DVD to a more intermediate/advanced home exerciser because of the length of the practice and also the intensity. Granted, a beginner maybe able to start with this and do all the moves at a slow pace. Then, that person would have a DVD that they could use for a very long time.
This is a great cardiovascular workout. I like it!!!
