JIggle free arms

"I have been using many workout DVDs over the years and have pretty good luck with them (mostly buns of steel ones), so I saw this Jiggle Free Arms and saw that it had decent reviews, so I ordered from Amazon.com. I am not the most coordinated, yet not a complete stiff, but I found this DVD hard to follow and it moved too quickly, w/out cueing or anyting, for me. I felt I got more cardio from trying to keep up with the moves, which is good, but not the area of my interest. Also, they use this 'transfermer' thing, that cost an extra 30-50 bucks, during the entire workout in various ways. It looks beneficial, but not willing to spend the extra money and I feel like I should have been told there was equipment required with it. Needless to say, there it sits on the shelf,probably will never be used again.... Where as I use my buns of steel three and 10 minute workouts all the time.
Good luck~ hope this review helps someone."

"Jiggle Free Arms is apart of the bonus/add on series for the Body Sculpting System 4 Series (BSS4); The Transfirmer. You will need to have the Transfirmer Box or a Step bench and slanted riser in order to do this workout. If you do not, some of the cardio will through you for a loop. This is a really good workout that gives you both cardio and weights, no abs, and stretch in approx 34 minutes. Unlike other Firm DVDs, in this workout you do not do the cardio and weights together, they each have their own segments. Biceps and Shoulders are worked hard and thoroughly in this DVD. The only chest work is a set of incline pushups done on the Transfirmer Box along with a short set of dumbbell presses. After doing the Firm for a while it is easy to see that certain DVDs work certain muscles groups more than others. I find this DVD very effective for the shoulders which many DVDs IMO don't do enough of. A DVD that would compliment this one would be The Firm's Total Body Toner as it hits the Back and Chest more so.
I am only giving this 4 stars bc like I mentioned above, the Chest is not worked hard enough. Even just an additional set of pushups would have been nice to really bring this muscle group to failure. Since this is an Upper Body & Cardio Only workout, I would have also liked to see more work for the Middle Back. However, this is solved by doing other Firm strength workouts during the week. Modifications are shown for step height as well as body positioning for various exercises. The only thing I would recommend is using a mat for the strength work and pushups done on the TransFirmer. I have Cathe's Step Bench Mat by Altus and it works perfectly for this. I wish there were more Upper-only DVDs on the market. But until more become available, this one will do nicely."
