I received this last week and have completed all of the workouts. Some critism of two DVD's from another reviewing is noted and while it could have fit on one DVD, how can he charge so much for one, so he put it on two. Bad move, but he's making money. Speaking of which, the price is hefty, but WELL WORTH IT. Yes he stands around and talks, because HE IS YOUR PERSONAL TRAINER with this. Individual training sessions in a gym can cost up to $80/hour. He walks you through and explains the moves instead of doing them so you know you are doing them right. He's fit as can be and focuses his attention on you so you can get the same results.
The enclosed workout schedule offers a mix and match approach from one to three routines matched up daily over 4 weeks with one day off a week. 10 min a day for min results, 2 routines (20 min) for improved results, and 3 routines (30 min) for max results. Bands are optional but included. My doors are old and so I use weights and or omit the bands. This system is perfect for me. I also have his p90x and love it as well, but sometimes don't have the time to do it.
You can increase or decrease intensity based on your needs and that's why I like it. For total or lower body, my strength, I push it. For upper body and abs, my weakness, I rest and use his modified moves that he shows you, and I can still feel it. YOU CAN GROW WITH THIS PROGRAM and that's why it's pretty cool. Busy, one 10 minute workout and you'll feel it. More time, then do two or three.
As usual for most every workout, the warm up and cool down are short, so I always do it twice or just keep going on my own. Also, his Yoga is a combo of simple yoga for stretching and can be done daily as it really improves flexibility. I can't believe I wrote this much about the program after one week, but it got me off my butt and working out again after I moved and have not worked out in about three months. A+ Tony...and THANKS!
