This is THE ab dvd!

"I own just about every ab video/dvd out there. I got this one a few days ago, and I just did the first beginning ab bootcamp. It is great! The main things I like so far about this dvd are; 1. They don't fool around with 15 minutes of warm up. It is full on ab work beginning to end. 2. There is just as much work on the lower ab area (which I need the most), and that was just in the first segment. 3. There are six ab workouts, so I don't see myself getting bored in 2 months like I normally do.
I don't even know who has put this dvd out, but it is exactly what I was looking for, 100% ab work.

"This DVD is excellent as far as the workout goes. I really felt the burn on each of the three beginning abs workouts. I was surprised that the "kickboxing" routine is done laying on your back though.
I certainly still felt the burn, although I'm not sure how a person "kickboxes" from the prone position. Nevertheless the workouts are intense and target mostly the upper abs. The lower abs and obliques also get some time but not as much as I would like.
I found the lead trainer's voice somewhat irritating, but that is a really small thing, and I'm probably being over critical since the key point is to get a good abs workout, which I have done each time I've gone through one of the various workouts.
The six workouts are really only 3 workouts with a beginner and advanced version of each.
I am a physically fit 35-year-old soldier, and I found the beginner routines fairly challenging. If you are out of shape, plan on it taking a while to be able to get through an entire 8 or 9 minute workout. You may need to pause and rest and build up to the point where you get through the whole thing over a period of time."
Another winner for Meghan White!

"This is my 2nd review of this DVD.
Now that I've been doing it a while I felt I could make an even better assessment.
All the abs workouts on this DVD are about 8 to 9 minutes long.
Mostly I am sticking with the Bootcamp Abs part of it, I have done a couple of the other workouts on it, but my abs desperately need Bootcamp Abs!
The instructor, Meghan White, is a very popular instructor and mostly releases dvds through Bodywise Media.
You start from the first second your hand lets go of your remote! Meghan leads you through several repetitions of crunches and tells you to breathe. She does several incarnations of these crunches, 1 leg up, 1 down. Leg in, leg out. Other side.
After doing those she starts working on your lower abs (which are my big problem area). You are on your back. Legs in the air. Hands on your back. Hips up, hips down. Several repetitions of this. You feel that you can't go on, but you do because she is doing the counting, and the music is perfect for this.
Then you've done those, and smaller ones with legs in the air. Next, your legs are bent at the knee, still in the air, you're doing crunches. You really feel that you can't go on, but you do. Meghan is counting, so you know you can hang in there and go on. "4, 3, 2, 1...".
A couple of different ones of those, and you did it! You can do it! It's only 9 minutes, but it's so hard! This is great and challenging!
Meghan White is the best instructor there is.
EDIT: December 5, 2009:
Well, I haven't done this for a while, but once again I am doing it again. I am seeing a difference in my abs. I am doing the top 2 sets (one is Bootcamp Abs, the other is Kickboxing Abs). I tried the Challenge Abs set and that is too much for me. I do one set a day and go between the two of the sets I just mentioned, and I do it in the morning right after I feed the cats. Is it making a difference? I believe it is. You don't want to know how bad my abs are. Let's just say the fat hangs DOWN, now it's a little bit less hanging down..know what I mean? I had to work up to doing this every day. First I started with every other day because it was too much for me. An added bonus is that since I have IBS-C this has been helping me with that problem. Amazing!

"I hate sit-ups but this video is worth it because it works. I have been losing weight with diet and aerobic exercise and have come to a stand-still so I decided to add some ab work and light resistance training. Within 1-2 weeks of doing this DVD I started receiving compliments of how "skinny" I look. I could fit into my size 10's again because my waist was beginning to trim down!
I like this video becuase the instructor is not annoying. She simply tells you what to do without fluff. There is no intro (warm up) which I like. There are six routines to choose from so if I only have 8 minutes I can just do one. If I have enough time I like to do THREE of the six workouts. Which is amazingly hard.
It has Beginning and Advanced Versions of BootCamp Abs, Kickboxing Abs, and Strengh Abs."
