I'm an internist, and I have recommended this video to many women in my practice. I have used both volume 1 and 2 for years. I like volume 1 more since the routines, though easy, have been effective in my experience. I recommend this video along with cardio daily. The routine that seems to work well for me and some of my patients is to combine the upper body workout (20 minutes) 3 days a week, alternating with lower body workout (20 minutes) 3 days a week with 30+ minutes of cardio 5 - 6 days a week as well as the abdominal exercises daily. I typically will watch my favorite shows or news program and do interval training by walking during the program and running/jogging during the commercials. In my experience, women's metabolism changes with hormonal change and we need to maintain the lean body mass for the tone and metabolism. One last thing, the video might look simple but ease into it so that you can see results without injury. Always have your physician clear you for exercises if you have medical problems or orthopedic issues to minimize injuries. Stay with it, and you should see results. Good luck!

This is an excellent way to strengthen and tone your body for both women and men. I have just recently discovered Kathy Smith's programs and this is one of my favorites! Her technique is unique in that it's high reps, followed by pulsing, then additional high-reps and she uses circuit training where she switches from one body part to another without rest. She makes it so fun and easy. There's lots of variety and options on this 2-DVD set that you will not get bored. You can easily mix and match for a short or long workout. There are two levels: beginner and intermediate and you can follow either one.

Here's what you get:
2 separate upper-body workouts, 20 minutes each
2 separate lower-body workouts, 20 minutes each
1 Core workout for abs and back, 10 minutes
1 abs workout, 10 minutes
Stability Ball workout, 20 minutes
Bonus: tips for great posture

You will need a set of weights: light, medium, and heavy + a balance ball.

One of my favorite fitness dvds is "Build Muscle, Shrink Fat" by Kathy. While this one was very similar, it didn't burn as many calories as that dvd.

And, quite frankly they were a bit TOO similar in the moves to need both. So while this is a FANTASTIC strength dvd, the other one kept my heart in the target heart rate zone but offered only one dvd where this one contains a set of two so you get more with it. So you decide what you need...

First, I'll note that, although I own several of Kathy Smith's dvds I am not biased towards her...I've given one or two of them just one star before when the cueing is bad.

That said, this one is a real winner!

How I measure caloric burn:
First, let me add that I wear a bodybugg to monitor my daily caloric expenditure. I say this only so you'll know what I note is based upon scientific measurement, rather than simply perceived exertion. It can also monitor calories burned per minute and just during a workout so I have great measurement in how a fitness dvd does, regardless of whether I feel I'm burning a lot or not. And I've amassed a large fitness dvd library over the years because I workout to them 6 days a week so I have a few to compare it to...

Caloric burn:
okay, so that said, I've learned that most dvds will fall into cardio dvds which tend to burn more calories as you do them and strength dvds which burn less during the workout but helps to continue burning more throughout the rest of the day and develps muscle which also raises metabolism. I have a much harder time finding a dvd that does both. One of the Crunch dvds does this and the Biggest Loser dvds are all pretty good at it as well. This one burns more calories than many strength dvds but isn't too high up there.

It's a really good exercise program! Worked all the major parts of the body that we struggle with. It really challenged me. And there were a lot of good tips like good posture and good eating habits as well.

When I first starting looking at reviews of this DVD, I was suprised to see so many low-star ratings. Then I started reading and most of them were from complaints of "poor seller experience" and not bc of the actual workout. Really? And that's worth rating down a workout?

This is an excellent Intermediate-Level weight/strength workout with many options. If you are new to in-home strength this is not one that offers a breakdown or tutorial for the movements. You should have a basic understanding of proper form and what traditional weight-room exercises are. Petra Kolber has a great (2010 released) beginner's strength workout that will teach some of the movements used in this workout. If you are an advanced lifter and use instructors like Kelly Coffey-Meyer or Cathe Friedrich, consider this a lighter, shorter workout for days when you need a change. For the most part this could be ranked as one of the more well-balanced and "perfect" weight workouts for those of us who are Intermediate+. It's easy on the joints, and offers time options depending on your schedule for the day/week. The shortest is 7 mins and is core only. each upper and lower workout is between 20-25 minutes. ** No Warm Up is offered so be sure to do one for a few minutes before hand or use this as an "add-on" to another workout. **

Disc One is Traditional-styled Weight Room exercises. You have various curls, presses, and a bent-legged deadlifts, lunges, squats, pulses, ect. You have the option of using heavier weight and fewer reps or lighter weight and higher reps. It is perfectly cued for both track options and offers the user an option for variety and makes this workout worth the purchase for that reason alone. Disc 2 is core and balanced-focused.
