Good Intermediate Body Sculpting Workout

"This DVD consists of a warm-up, 39 minutes of toning for upper body and lower body and a 6 minute stretch. In the first half of the toning you'll alternate between upper body and lower body doing squats and lunges for the legs and concentrating on the shoulders, biceps, and triceps for the upper body. Gilad and his class use an x-ertube (a resistance band with handles). He says you can use your own body weight or dumbells but doesn't have anyone showing that modification and he really should have.
The second half of the workout is mostly upper body working shoulders, biceps ,triceps, back and chest using 2 sets of weights. Towards the end there's a short segment working calves with upper body. The workout ends with push-ups and chest flies. As usual, Gilad is motivating and provides many form pointers. My only complaint is that you can't select the resistance band and weights sections separately. You can individually select the warm-up, entire sculpting section and the cool down. Overall, I loved the beach setting and thought the exercises were very effective"

"I love Gilad, but I have to say, in this dvd, he isn't as much fun as he usually is.
Here is my list of Pros and Cons. PROS: It is a good solid workout, especially good for tricepts and bicepts. He is good at cueing the exercisise and showing correct form. I like using the bands with the leg exercises. He has a great exercise for the calves. Cons: NO ABDOMINAL EXERCISES in this dvd. The music is almost non-existant. If you like to work your back out (traps, lats, rear delts and rhomboids) you may find the back exercises too easy and not enough reps- I did them with both arms to make it harder. He doesn't have anyone showing modifications for absolute beginners-though the exercises are not that complicated. But overall a decent workout."
Love it, BUT you "Feel the burn"..

"Well, let me start by saying this: It was back in September, 2006 that i suddenly realized "Man i've let myself go.." (An 8 yr. old daughter & 2 yr. old son later) i was at 213 lbs. my heaviest (scary i tell you!)
It was shortly after that i discovered Gilad and his workouts on fit tv, he is motivating & fun, but i am sometimes sore from his workouts. I DO feel very invigorated after doing them, no matter how sore i am!
Well, long story short.. i've been doing the workouts & have gone from a size 18 to a 14 AND i am continuing to do them to get much lower than what i'm at now (180 lbs. currently..)
IF you stick to doing the workouts you WILL see results, though i must say.. for me it's a long road. (BUT a road that i look forward to going down & STAYING down!) So, if you really want to get to your goal weight try them & have FUN !!
Great but very sore

"I like this dvd a lot. It is aimed mainly at the upper body. The first part he uses a band and the second is weights. But I would recomend doing half of the workout at at time, my shoulders were sore for almost three weeks afer this workout. I would have liked the cool down or warm up to have more stretching of all the muscle groups."
