"I was looking for something that was not just another boring 1-2-3 workout & this is it! The pacing is excellent, "Commander Tom" is personable & keeps you motivated throughout this fast-paced DVD.
Time is at a premium for me & this DVD lets me do a challenging workout quickly. If you haven't been in shape before, you'll have to work up to this slowly. If you HAVE been in shape & want to get there again quickly, this is your answer! You'll work all major muscle groups in a workout that takes about 20 minutes (& seems to fly by quicker than that--it's really fast paced & fun).
You'll work your shoulders, biceps, triceps, quadriceps, calves, chest & back muscles. As you advance, feel free to "up" the level of resistance with higher resistance bands (I'd advise you to start with a light resistance band until you see how many reps you can comfortably do--remember, "Form is King").
Very nice optional warm-up workout, too. Not a necessity, since the main workout itself has its own warmup set, but the light warm-up workout would be a great place for a beginner to learn how effective resistance band workouts really are.
The extra ab workout will work wonders on your tummy in no time (if you can keep up with Tom--I'm not quite there yet & spend some of my ab time recovering on the floor : ). He DEFINITELY practices what he preaches--his abs are tight & strong & yours will be too if you can do this workout from start to finish.
Resistance work is a health necessity for ANYONE over 40; if you think you can keep in optimum shape by doing cardio alone, you are sadly mistaken. Get with the program! Muscle mass = stronger body = younger body. Also, more muscle means a higher resting metabolic rate (you'll burn lots more calories even when just sitting still).
The PLUS side of that story is that by investing in this DVD and an inexpensive set of resistance bands (like these:SPRI ES501R Xertube Resistance Band with Door Attachment and Exercise Charts (Red, Medium)), you can equal the results of an expensive home gym (think Bowflex, Hoist).
This workout really is a lot of fun & will definitely tone your body quickly--highly recommended!"
