The cardio interval format is complemented by compound moves with the strength-training exercises; it's so nice to have both combined in one workout since they are the two best ways to burn fat. As far as intensity goes, it seems like Jari's hardest workout so far. If you liked Get Ripped 1000 and Get Extremely Ripped, you'll like this one. It has similar exercises as those two previous videos, but enough new moves to make it worthwhile. I'd describe it as a combo of those two previous workouts: it has the cardio intervals of GR1000, combined with more of the compound moves from GER. The other thing that makes this one really tough is that there are no rests between each exercise; the workout moves from cardio right into strength training each time, so your heart rate stays elevated throughout the workout.
To do this workout, you will need various weights of dumbbells. A step is optional, but it will really make the workout more intense if you have one.
As another reviewer mentioned, a really nice bonus of this workout is that you can do one long workout (about 75 minutes total, including the abs and stretch), the two thirty-minute workouts, just the cardio intervals, just the weight-training sections, or just push-ups and abs. It's nice to have the options broken down so much.
The abs section consists of planks, side planks, and crunches.
Workout one consists of the following exercises:
--Side Squats w/ Biceps curl
--Squat with Arnold Press
--Triceps Extension with Leg Abduction
--Anterior Raise with Knee Lift
--Chest Press and Flyes
--Cooldown and stretch
Workout two consists of the following exercises:
--Dead Lift and Biceps
--Wide Squat with Unilateral Raises
--Side Squat/Lunge with Triceps Extension (right)
--Side Squat/Lunge with Triceps Extension (left)
--Alternating Lunge with Lateral Raises
--Push-ups and Abs
--Cooldown and stretch
Jari's most recent workout before this one (Get Extremely Ripped) met with some negative feedback since the set on that video was really dark and it was hard to see some of the movements. Jari and her crew have rectified some of those grievances on this newer one: the set is a bit brighter (although it's still pretty dark, so you might not like this one if GER's darkness bothered you) and it's easier to see what all of the exercisers are doing. Jari's form is also better in this one, and she doesn't make any negative comments about the background exercisers. (Those aspects of GER didn't bother me, but I know that they bothered some people.) The "tribal feel" to the music and clothing are also nice; I really liked the music, and there were only a few songs that I had heard before on other workouts.
Another nice feature that was also on Get Extremely Ripped is that each segment ends with a timer that counts down the last thirty seconds of that segment. I also liked how Jari has more background exercisers working out at different levels: she has a modifier for beginners, plus exercisers for more intermediate and advanced exercisers, too. If you check out Jari's website, you can also purchase a PDF file that gives various rotations using all seven of her DVD's.
Overall, this is a nice addition to my rather large video collection. I really like Jari's down-to-earth, motivational style, and I can tell that I will be doing this workout a lot!
UPDATE ON 10/9/09: I did Get Extremely Ripped (the video right before this one) this morning, and the set is definitely lighter and brighter on this newer workout. It's the same set that they are on, but it's much easier to see what the exercisers are doing on this newer workout. So if the darkness on GER bothered you, it shouldn't as much on this one.
I love the fact that this workout combines strength and cardio and keeps the heartrate up with dynamic movements. There are a lot, lot, lot of lunges, a good number of squats, and some high impact cardio (tuck jumps, jump squats, high knees, etc.) so if you have knee issues, you may want to skip this one or you will be modifying quite a bit.
Overall, this is my go-to workout for when I want to torch some calories and feel very accomplished for a job well done. I typically do this one 1x per week and do 45 to 60 minutes of either cardio or heavy weights the other 5 days that I work out. I have been doing this rotation for about a month and have experienced some great fat loss. Get this one if you want a good challenge for both your muscles and your lungs/heart!
