This dvd is a joke

"this dvd is probably the funnniest workout video ever. the video basically consists of prison inmates just released from jail tearing off their shirts at ghetto playground to show off their bodies. (seriously) this exciting dvd teaches you how to perform pull ups and push ups.. just in case you never learned how to do them in third grade. spend 15 dollars on this dvd to learn! There is actually one guy in the dvd who doesnt do a complete push up, he goes halfway and pulls himself back up after 20 reps and is proud. impressive.its actually a fun dvd to gather all your friends to watch, just to laugh at how ridiculous it is, and maybe play frisbee with the dvd afterwards.its a funny attempt at something legitimate but cant be taken seriously because its just a bunch of "tough guys" showing off their body and cursing off the camera with the same rap song playing in the background over and over.this is a perfect gift for any fake thugs in your area. a glorification of things most people would be embaressed about."

"I liked this DVD. The guy who reviewed this before that seen Superman Pullups in gym class is on [drugs]. ... No one does this stuff in Gym class! Way beyond normal pullups. He either didnt do the workout just watched it. Or he's hating. No other options. This is a very good DVD. My only complaint and why it didnt get Five stars is they need to give more of a unified program that a beginner could do. Instead of flipping from playground to playground with a bunch of different people. Im looking forward to volume 2. Keep the first guy that demonstrated the pullups througout the video in the next one and you have a winner. He seemed to explain things the best."

"This video basically covers all the calisthenics that you can do in an inner city playground. That, and the yo,yo,yo type "flava" of the commentators is what make this vido entertaining. I especially enjoyed the "Hood Aerobics" chapter. Seriously, there is one! In all seriousness, the video does show some very good bodyweight exercises. I don't personally care for all the stupidity, but there are some ideas in there. If you are serious about bodyweight exercises, I suggest that you look for a copy of the old Karl Gotch video that Matt Furey used to sell. As much as I dislike his current stuff, that video was remarkable and showed everything that could be done without weights. Buy this video for entertainment value or if the gangsta fantasy pushes you to workout."
Thugs Do Fitness!

"Thug Workout: Fitness from the Streets is not your customary workout video, in fact, at first glance, the brash language and in your face style would seem more "Thug" than actual "Fitness".
But the operative word here is fitness, and these guys have developed some wickedly good routines that consist of various pull-ups, push-ups and dips. But what makes these common exercises different, is "how" they're executed ... some of which, most people won't be able to immediately perform. For those that can, you'll get a very challenging workout.
The only draw backs are that the video tends to repeat certain exercises throughout and there is no lower body routine.
But if you're looking for a new way to shake-up your workout or add something to an existing one, this will certainly supply you with some new and interesting material."
