This review is from: Billy Blanks' Tae Bo: Fat Blasting Cardio & Total Body Fat Blaster (DVD)
It's rare to find a DVD that provides a good solid 45 minutes of cardio exercise. Typically they are stop-again-start-again kind of things, not able to raise the heart rate.
I have been doing the Fat Blasting Cardio DVD for a couple of months now and still cannot complete all the reps while wearing the Billy Bands. My heart rate stays in a good zone for the entire workout. I feel that during the winter, when I cannot run because my asthma is aggravated by the cold, this DVD is my best cardio option. I have not tried the Total Body Fat Blaster.
One problem with Tae Bo is that if you've never had experience with either Tae Bo, kickboxing, or some form of Martial Art, you will have trouble mimicking the form you see on the DVD. This is a good way to get an injury early in the process of learning, which can be frustrating. I recommend a small amount of instruction on proper form while kicking, and don't be afraid to start out doing slower reps than you see on the DVD. I would say that it's pretty easy to blow the knee of your standing foot if you try to do more than your body is capable of. Also, unless you have a good deal of upper body strength, it is wise to do the workout without the Billy Bands until you feel confident. Believe me, it's still plenty cardio.

Actual a good workout should be stop again and start again workout using the afterburn effect, burning more calories though out the day. You will burn a lot more cals if you sprint for 5 minutes and rest then jogging for 30 minutes.
