Jane Fonda's early videos were made with quality; they were lengthy and featured a strenuous workout that many exercise leaders today skip. However, with a need to compete with exercising models, tv queens, and every Joe Blow making exercise videos, the quality of her later video workouts, too, declined.
This 1985 90-minute tape features TWO workouts in ONE. The tape consists of a 35-minute BEGINNER'S with 12 minutes of aerobics. The 55 minute ADVANCED has 16 minutes of aerobics. You can choose to do this on alternate days if you are at the advanced stage. But the BEGINNER'S section is for beginners with at least some physical endurance or stamina.
What I prefer on this tape is the inclusion of toning and stretching all body parts. The warm-ups include neck, shoulder, arm streching including toe raises, tenson stretches, and including stretching the waist. Usually the newer exercise gurus don't include extensive warmup streching that Fonda does.
The floor work is tough, with leg lefts, that concentrate on toning the back and thighs. Stomach crunches are intense isolated movements that strengthen and tighten the hips and butt.
Once you master this, try the most difficult late 70's Jane Fonda tape ever, "The Jane Fonda Challenge." I have never done anybody's tape that is more vigorous than this.
If you are searching for quality workout tapes, stick with Jane Fonda EARLY tapes like this one, the "New Workout". You will work hard and you won't even notice the "leg warmers"......MzRizz
