"If you are serious about getting in shape but you don't have a lot of time then I definitely recommend these routines, especially when you include Abs & Arms. Unless you are already in excellent shape you will definitely feel the burn, in a good way. After about a month and a half I definitely notice the difference, I can now complete the leg workout non-stop, and can hold my own during the bun workout. I alternate days of these isolated workouts and some sort of cardio work, so my results are probably going to take longer than those more dedicated to these particular workouts."

"Both of these workout are really good. I've been doing them everyday for a week now and I can already see a difference. The leg segment is pretty easy, but the buns segment is really tough. I like this because it's fast and seems very effective. I would recommend this DVD, but I wish I had seen that you can get the DVD that also has the Abs and Arms all on one for just a few dollars more. I think I still might get the Abs and Arms DVD too, because I like the 8 minute time frame, it's good for adding onto other routines or doing them by themselves when you're in a hurry. The only thing I would say negative about this DVD is that the picture quality is not the best, it skips some and is definitely not DVD quality, but the price is good compared to other DVD's. Also, the man who instructs says "come on gang" a few too many times, but I can handle that. Other than those two complaints I say try these out, I think you'll like them."

"I love these 8-minute workouts! I have both the buns/legs and arms/abs DVD. It's super easy to squeeze in one or two 8 minute sessions in the morning before work plus they really do seem to work. Best of all the people aren't annoying or boring. One thing that's really cool is that there is no counting -- they tally reps by time (eg: 30 seconds doing this, 1 minute doing that, etc.)."

"The Buns workout is the best out of all of the 8 minute work minute outs. It is hard at first but it is well worth the effort. The 8 minute strech is a great addition to the DVD."
Effective, no frills, low impact workout (& great bonus aero

"I initially skeptical and thought it would be too easy. But after I tried it, I found it to be a VERY EFFECTIVE workout. I totally feel the burn (even though I've done exercises similar to these before on workouts like The Firm's Buns/Hips tapes which I love). One of the keys to it being so effective is that NO TIME IS WASTED in between movements, you are constantly doing 30-45 seconds of one motion, then doing 30-45 seconds of another motion.
Instead of counting the number of repititions, the instructor goes by time; I like this because beginners can easily do the exercises at a slower pace if the need to, without being distracted by what the instructor is counting. Also, since each exercise is only 30-45 seconds, I don't get bored with it.
I liked the "countdown" indicator on the side of the screen because it gave me an idea of how much more is left of the workout, so it motivates to just finish up the next 5 minutes, 4 minute, 3 minutes.
This is a no frills workout, doing LOW IMPACT (no jumping or marching) ISOLATION exercises. The instructor has good form. I think this workout is challenging for even intermediate users. For advance people, all of the exercises can be done with ankle weights (I would recommend trying it without weights first, then once you get the hang of things try a 1 lb ankle weight, then increase weight as you get stronger)
A nice thing about this video that isn't advertised is the fact that is has several different BONUS WORKOUTS that are very cardio, so this workout ought to rival the other mix-and-match exercise dvd's out there.
BUNS - 8 minutes squats lunges butt kick (leg shoot outs while in table position) bent leg press (leg lifts while in table position with knee bent) butt lift (leg lifts while in table position with straight leg)
STANDING - 8 minutes squats quad lift outer thigh raise, butt press inner thigh raise hamstring curl, butt lift outer thigh lift, squat(if you have bad knees, you can do just the outer thigh lift) lunge front/back bent leg inner thigh raise plie, calf raises
