Effective workout targets thunder thighs and flapping arms

"Joyce Vedral has a strong Noo-Jork accent and her workouts are no-frills, but you have to understand that this lady has studied weight lifting and exercise for decades and she knows JUST what works and what works FAST.
If you (I mean you, Southerners and Westerners, especially) can put up with hearing the dulcet strains of a New Yorker, you will get a workout that includes supersets and pyramids that work the muscles to best advantage.
These workouts are short, and target just those two areas. Other DVD's by Joyce blend with these for customized workouts: for example, you can do this workout with the Bra-Roll-Boobs and butt on one day, and the thighs and and the butt workout on another workout day and then JUST ABS for a 6 day routine. The workouts are short (18-20 minutes) and you can customize your own workout and change it up this way, avoiding the boredom of the same tape every day. Or if you have a favorite mega-workout tape or go to a gym, you can do the arms to tone up on off-days to target those areas heavily.
Some usual criticisms of the Vedral DVD's are that she is not young (No, she is NOT. She's fit as hell, but she's over fifty. Oh well, we're all going to get old someday!) and the music is not heartpumpingly exciting. If you want a trendy, flashy workout, this isn't going to do it for you. But if you want to make the MOST of your time, using techniques with simple dumbbells and an a bench and a mat, with maximized effect, then this is it. The subtleties of using the right pyramids of weight and the right order of muscle exercises make these more effective than other workouts. Only a certified trainer, right by your side, could do better."
