This review is from: Kathy Smith - Timesaver Lift Weights to Lose Weight (DVD)
Kathy Smith is not my favorite video aerobics instructor. As others have mentioned, she whoops and yelps throughout the video, which is quite annoying. She also swings her weights a little bit. Those negatives aside, I love this DVD because it has helped me get definition in my arms and lower body. It has also helped me lose weight, since strength training boosts metabolism. The DVD has two methods, in which you can do light weights with higher reps or heavier weights with lower reps. You can also opt do the lower body segment with or without weights. Though I get bored with workout DVD's easily, I always use this DVD (mostly the upper body workout and bonus abs) on a regular basis in combination with my cardio workouts. I've lost about 30lbs. since this past Spring (2002). I started this DVD in May and gradually started from 4 lb. free weights progressing to 8 lb. weights over time. This video was really key to getting the leaner and defined arms I've always wished for.
