I began working out to Lauren's Ultimate Sculpt volume 1 DVD for 12 minutes with 5lbs for 4 days the first week and 10lbs the second week to see if I could even perform the moves correctly, as I suffer from regular neck and back pain.
I find Lauren's instruction-style to be very user-friendly, especially for a beginner, and as I've progressed to my 4-week point and want something a little more demanding, Ultimate Sculpt volume 2 is fitting the bill very well. Overall, I really like Lauren's more subdued approach to exercise. I have strained my back in the past by performing strength training exercises incorrectly and Lauren's approach is slow but intense enough to make you really focus on each move being performed so that you won't injure yourself. Her exercise demonstrations are great and a must if you're a beginner; her warm-up and cool-down sessions are amazing medicine for your joints. Albeit, there are some moves that I simply cannot perform well yet (Turkish Get-Ups and pushups with KBs for fear they will turn over - I'm a clutz, too. lol!). For these moves, I either lay out or do traditional variations like regular pushups with no KBs.
Note: I did purchase a KB workout DVD from Amy Bento to break up the routine and I have to say, I honestly found her style to be almost manic. Although, my heart rate was up during the entire workout and this was great (heart rate is up with Lauren's, too), plus, some of her moves are rather challenging and provide an interesting approach to KB, her style is not my cup of tea.Read more ›
There are three short work-outs on the DVD: The Grind, The Smoker, and The Finisher. All of these names are quite appropriate. There is also a joint mobility warm-up, a tough ab section, a short cool-down as well as the previously mentioned instruction section. In my opinion, this justifies the price for this DVD.
The production value is a little spotty in some areas. This doesn't bother me at all because the workout is so incredible.

Great intermediate kettlebell workout. The dvd is broken apart by "workout". So depending on your time allowance you can customize your workout for the day. Read morePublished on September 12, 2013 by Happy Me

I would have given this DVD 4 stars, but I was only able to watch about half of it, as the DVD skipped and stopped in areas. I've returned it and plan to replace it. Read morePublished on June 24, 2013 by karilu
