Video should have been edited for DVD purposes

"I wrote a similar review about Volume 2. What they have done with these videos is taken them from TV shows, where viewers are presumably supposed to keep doing the exercises while commercials are playing. The producers have not re-edited the DVD's for home use. It's therefore common to have missing portions of the exercises (missing biceps in one case, only one leg done in another, one that completely misses out on any stretching, and so on). If you have the patience to rewind the DVD or stop it to complete the full exercises (or don't care if you skip some parts) then maybe this won't bother you.
The other thing I find annoying is that the producers spend about a minute at the beginning of each 23.5 minute video playing the intro to the TV show, and I can't seem to skip past that quickly to get right to the exercises. When you're doing a couple of the segments at a time, it sure seems to be a waste of time, particularly given that they play the theme religiously, but skip actual exercises that someone at home would want to do.
That much being said, the exercises themselves are terrific and very time-effective, and I'm a big Gilad fan. I will use these when I'm pressed for time, but for a full workout I'll likely stick with the Ultimate Body Sculpt and Quickfit DVDs."
Excelent exercises, bad quality of the dvd

"I love the exercises, but the quality of the DVD is really bad, you see exercises of the right leg (16 repetitions) but only (6 repetitions) of the left leg , this uneven way to show the exercises occurs two or three time during each session . I bought three DVDs for a total of nine workouts and the same situation is repeated again and again, is very annoying."

"I have been working out with Gilad on fit tv so I was already familiar with these short but sweet exercises. They are very effective and I feel the burn even after I am done. Gilad has been doing this for years, so you really are in good hands with anything that he does. I have been going to the gym regularly for several years, however, these workouts have helped me push past a plateau. I feel my body getting tighter with each workout. They are just perfect for me after a morning run. I am seriously considering canceling my gym membership!"
Great DVD Workout

"I am a pilot and basically live in hotel rooms. This dvd is great because I can take my workout with me. I just place it in my laptop and have a good 25 min. workout every day. I like these workouts becuase they get my heart going without getting too extreme. The workouts can be done with simple weights (I use a tension strap as I can take it with me). I have experienced great results in the 4 weeks I have been using the dvd."
