"This is a boxset of 4 dvd's. It includes (...), abs, cardio and yoga/stretching.
I personally don't like the interval training cardio one. It was just confusing choreography and too many silly jumps.
I dont have any comments on the yoga one, I haven't really done it.
But I have done the abs and (...)workouts.
The abs one has some very good abs routine, has a section at the beginning that is warm up/cardio, and some kicks, and then moves on to the floor, which is where the workout is.
Very challenging, lots of crunches and some pilates moves integrated with crunches, and plenty of exercises for the lower abs!! It also has a 10 mins bonus section which is the (very painful) floor section from the killer (...) workout.
The killer (...)workout is a "killer." It has a lot of plies, lunges in the standing section, and then moves on to the floor section (which is the 10 mins bonus on the abs dvd).
This dvd has a bonus section, and indeed, it is the floor section from the abs workout!
All workouts last around 35 - 40 minutes.
I personally wouldn't recommend buying all these dvd's. I'd only buy the abs workout (which has the (...)workout as well).
And the other 2, not worth the price.

"I like Petra and her instruction-style, Baron is okay but likes to yap and yap, Dolores isn't much of an instructor, and worst of all, Michael is a joke. Almost immediately, I realized how this man CANNOT keep count, and just rambles on and on while his 'assistants' are doing the exercises (as in, he's 'training' them, hence the title). The problem with not counting but rambling on is that the workout becomes uneven--more reps on the one side over the other. I mean, counting is pretty pedestrian, isn't it? How else do you measure your improvements? Furthermore, the workout lacks the minutest level of creativity--it's just boring, repetitive, basic movements (as is the workout with Dolores) and you're not even sure what bart of your abs some of these movements are working exactly. I'm not sure Michael knows the exact details either. No doubt he's ripped and whatever he's doing for his own body is working (I read somewhere he's a boxer), but as an instructor, I think my pizza delivery guy could pull off something more interesting and worth my time."
