"This workout is supposed to be done using a special oblong "core ball" (which Hart sells). This needs to be mentioned in the product description.
Most of the exercises could be worked using perhaps a soccer-type ball (if you're not too heavy). Two of the exercises, the Mermaid and the Diamond push-up, she does with the ball, but you'd get a better workout not using the ball--it is used here as more of a support, rather than as a way to make the exercise more effective. Indeed, since it is oblong, rather than round, I think it is not as effective as using a round ball, since there is a lot less need to balance on it.
Another negative with this DVD is that there is over a minute of ads you can't forward through at the beginning. Plain annoying, especially when you're in a hurry to get to the workout.
Rent first, before buying."
