This is the only video that I have by Jari Love, but it's a great one. Ripped is an hi-rep lighter weight endurance workout that runs just under and hour. It is quite similar to the Bodypump workout or classes, which I personally have never seen but have heard they are alike. Jari is exercising along with 3 other exercisers which she refers to as the "Rippers". You will need weights, dumbells and/or barbell, a step or a bench you will need for some of the seated exercises (they use the bench for the lying exercises but I just lie on the floor), a mat if you don't have carpet and Jari also recommends a heart rate monitor. The setting is a bit dark and somewhat plain but didn't bother me. The music is decent, techno would be the best way to describe it.

The warmup I found a little odd, not really your typical warm up, you just grab some weights and go from the start. You do some shoulder rolls while holding a barbell or weights, and then you will so some deadlifts, rows, deadrows, bicep curls, overhead presses and squats. These are all moves you will see in the workout but the weight should be much lighter than what you would normally use.

Then it's on to the workout, Jari tells you what exercise is coming so you can prepare. They also display each exercisers "personal weight load" which I really liked, it gives you an idea of what weights to use which I found very helpful. You start out with squats, a pretty long set with varied counts, 4-4, 3-1. 2-2 and single count. After these you will do a brief set of plie squats before finishing out with another brief set of traditional squats. Chest work is next you will do a short set of pushups, followed by bench presses again with varied counts.

I enjoy Jari Love's "Get Ripped" workout a lot. It is a high-repetition, strength training workout. This means you do the same muscle-building exercise for each muscle group many times over and over. It isn't as repetitive as you might think, however, because Jari varies the speed at which you do the moves. I found that this 55 minute workout flew by and left me pleasantly worked out at the end. Jari uses a light barbell and a club-sized step (as a weight bench). One background exerciser uses dumbbells instead of a barbell. If you don't own a step, you can simply do those moves on the floor.

As far as difficulty, I would rate this as an intermediate level. Jari's background exercisers, however, show both beginner and advanced modifications which make it possible for everyone to get a great workout. There is a segment separate from the workout itself that goes over modifications in detail, which is perfect for the beginning exerciser.

A couple of minor details: people who do not enjoy "techno" types of music may be annoyed by the soundtrack. It is definitely different than most of the other music from workout videos I own. I found it to be unpleasant, but something I could live with. Additionally, although this is a total body workout, I thought the section for abdominals was unimpressive. I hate doing ab work and in fact my abs probably are my weakest muscles. Even wimpy ol' me found this section to be too easy even with modification. You may want to add additional abdominal exercises on to your workout.

Overall, this is a great workout that is different from some you may have tried.

I'm a certified personal trainer and I like working with various fitness dvds because it's interesting to see how various folks put together their programs.

This dvd has some good overall exercise selection (though I have reservations about some), decent form pointers but I do have issues regarding safety concerns.

The lack of a more thorough warm-up concerns me. I don't feel there's enough there to properly prepare one for the coming workout. I did a bunch of warm-ups on my own.

Repetition tempo: I like the "idea" of the variety of tempos within the exercises but felt her "singles" are too fast for eccentric loading with these types of exercises and could put a lot of people in unnecessary danger, especially for the deadlifts, pullovers and "biceps" curls (which obviously work all the elbow flexors not just the biceps).

Here's just a few observations regarding certain parts of the dvd.

Dead lift/Bent over rows: Dead lifts are a great full body exercise but Bent over rows, even though very common, aren't a good risk versus reward choice. One arm rows are much safer while still being very beneficial.

Again, the fast single count eccentrics make both the Deadlifts and Bent over rows very high risk and definitely not worth the reward.

Skull crusher/Triceps press combo: Interesting combination to use with Dumbbells. I think that doing the close grip triceps press with a barbell can put unnecessary pressure/stress on the wrists (I did all the exercise w/ DBs).
