Tough going - but worth sticking it out ;-P

"Amy Bento is such a good instructor. She's tough but encouraging and friendly and makes you want to work. This routine is more for advanced exercisers, but intermediates will find this a great challenge.
She combines aerobic favourites with high intensity bootcamp and kick boxing moves. Your heart rate will be up there fast and long time. The one thing I really loved is that the choreography isn't too tough to follow so it's easier to follow the moves and get the job done. There are your usual repeaters, jumping jacks etc and then you might add arm movements to make it more intense. They are all mixed in with the bootcamp and kickboxing portions and so it basically never lets up. Her energy is what helps keep you going. It's very infectious. I also love the music here and that helps you out a lot too.
If you have some dumbbells, then you're good to go. It's tough but worth it and while I've only done this three or four times, it definately gets a little easier each time and I can't wait for the day I can do it without stopping. Again, she is a great instructor and this is sure to give you results."
Frustrating...but worth it!

"This is one tough workout! Talk about sweating...this one will do it, as well as raise your heart rate BIG TIME...I hit 190.
There are 4 hi/lo combos and some cardio combos really frustrated me. She does the moves (which are extremely fast & includes pivots) with little instruction. After I do this workout a few more times, I am confident it will get much easier! In addition to the cardio, Amy does combat, kickboxing, and bootcamp moves that keep you moving!!!
Here's a list of some moves used in this DVD: grapevine movements, kick ball changes, repeater knees, pendulums, lunge chop - kicks, cross punches, chasses, rope, jump shot, pivots, arabesques, mountain climbers, speedbag, mambo, crossover sqauts, round house kicks, high kicks, shuffle touch ground, crescent kicks, jabs..as you can see it is a workout packed full of intense moves =)
The weighted core section (use 5 or 8 lbs) starts with some standing core work. On the floor, some variation on side plank moves, all while holding one weight. Straight leg, tucked legs, and lift up with both weights....tough, effective core work!
Amy's All Cardio Hi-Low Knockout Workout is geared for intermediate to advanced exercisers! I highly recommend this - it is quite challenging =) Those with knee problems probably should stay away from this one."
Way too complicated

"I exercise regularly and am in good shape. I was looking forward to this workout because it was rated as "advanced." I was very disappointed. It is advanced because it is a very aerobic oriented and complicated workout. You must know the moves because there is no explanation or practicing the moves by Amy beforehand. Basically she starts into the workouts at breakneck speed (literally). She goes so fast that she can barely say what she is doing next before she is already doing it. You could probably get the moves down after doing this workout 5-10 times, but really, I don't want to take the time to do that. The reason I exercise at home is because I want to save time and I just want to exercise and feel like I'm getting a good workout. I don't want to feel like I'm running around in circles trying to follow what is going on and wasting time. Something like Jillian Michaels workouts are much better. They are not complicated at all, but I really feel like I'm getting a good workout. I have several workout videos that I do at home, but I will not be putting this video into my exercise rotation."

"This workout is only for people who are at an intermediate or advanced level. It is an awesome workout. The music is great and the moves are fun. She goes quick when learning the new routines, so you have to rewind and keep trying until you get it. I would suggest watching your heart rate through the workout and make sure it does not get too high. I noticed that would happen to me and I would just need to take out the arm movements or do an alternative movement that is lower impact. The more I do this workout, I am able to keep up more and more. I would say this for all of her high impact workouts."
