It's a little misleading to have the USA's top fitness model teaching a beginner workout, especially because there's nothing in the title or DVD that hints at or indicates beginner. If you go on YouTube and see Greg Plitt's workouts, you know he is holding back in this video and normally does a lot more complicated routines and a lot of it. This video is "instructional" so Greg just does a few demonstrations of the exercises (it may take you longer than 20 minutes to perform - it is not a "workout video" where you workout alongside the instructor, it is an instructional video rather - demonstrations only).
The DVD cover and video scripting for Plitt also lies - they say "All it takes is a dumbbell set and adjustable bench," yet in the video there is a calf raise exercise that uses a platform or 8 inch raised beam in the video. It wouldn't be difficult to make, but it is sort of false advertising to have shown just dumbbells and a bench, and then SURPRISE, you suddenly see another tool they you weren't expecting to see/have to use.
Video is only 20 minutes - there's something left to be desired at that. Considering the retail price is 14.95, it is VERY expensive as a DVD for such a short duration of material.
Production quality is ok. Someone had a brilliant idea to put Plitt in swim trunks/board shorts but the scenery is blank/white. It's a white background throughout the entire video. Very generic looking.
Now that I got all of that out of the way, I AM A Beginner level so this video is okay for me. It's important that beginner/people that are not fit, get manageable workouts. I can perform every exercise here without adapting or making modifications. This video is perfect for beginner.
Greg/writers of the script, give you a 4 day workout plan. I will update this review after trying the workout for a month.
Greg starts out wearing a shirt, then he pulls it off and throws it at the camera once the workout time begins. At the end of video he starts flexing and doing poses. This was DVD was definitely tightly scripted.
Conclusion: Take one look at Plitt's studly body - it is obvious he was paid A LOT of money to do this video and follow how the video was scripted by the writers. He could def. do much much more and it seems he belongs in more of a hardcore Beach Body production where he is the instructor (but we know he didn't get ripped from a P90x routine and the public that works out and reads fitness magazines pretty much knows that and we who he is).
UPDATE #1 3-12-14: It is very ironic that the video is based on pushing quick change adjustable dumbbells, like the PowerBlock set - but Greg Plitt never tells you WHY you're switching poundages or explain why certain exercises should be a higher or lower weight to lift with. You kind of just have to try to gauge what you should be lifting by seeing visually what he is lifting for each exercise. I downgrade this video a star just for this - it is clear in the video that adjustable dumbbells are a fundamental. He could have at LEAST explained a little about what level of pounds/weight you should lift to see results.
UPDATE #2 3-24-14: Why did I pay for this video? It should have been a free bonus that you get when you buy a PowerBlock set or when you subscribe to Iron Man Magazine. Over half of the exercises don't involve the use of the bench. You don't need a bench to do ab crunches either.
How ridiculous to have a fitness genius like Plitt available and not allow him to really teach and train his incredible philosphy on working out.
