won't purchase more of his workouts
on April 11, 2013
This is a good ab workout (one of the few to make my abs sore!), but his warm-up goes completely against modern warm-up ideas, using static stretches before going straight into the workout. I was surprised by that, seeing as he's on the Biggest Loser (though I've never watched it) and his co-host Jillian Michaels has excellent workout DVDs.
Only one of his assistants (the one who does the 'easy' modifications, without weights) has good form...the rest of his trainees definitely struggle in this area! It's nice to see other people struggling with a workout, but if I'm expected to follow their form, I want to make sure I'm following good form!
Some of the moves are really good. 40 minutes is a looooong ab workout, and I've only made it through the whole thing once (and couldn't laugh for several days!). The short workout is not even worth your time. I'd say IF you get this DVD, be sure you're familiar with proper form and be free to skip around the moves to create a workout that suits you and your time.
