This is a killer leg workout. Tamilee really
knows how to work your lower body -- sometimes more than
you want to! The first part is standing work, followed by
floor. You'll want to use ankle weights for the floor
work. The total workout, including a warm-up and
cool-down stretch is about 40 minutes. It goes by pretty
quick, even though it's all legs/buns. I especially like
the floor work; it's great for outer and inner thighs.
The hamstring work leaves a little to be desired. You're
lying on your stomach and curling your leg. It's okay,
but I think other exercises are sometimes more effective
Tamilee often gets off beat in this video, but since
it's a toning workout and not aerobics, it doesn't mess
you up too much. She gives excellent form pointers.
Overall, I give this tape a B, maybe B+. The workout
itself probably rates an A, but "fun-ness" is
only a C.
This is a great workout for the lower body. I did this video faithfully for about two months, but I got tired of it very quickly. The quality of the video is pretty bad, and the music is just the faint sound of a 1980's Casio keyboard in the background. I recommend this video if you use it once in a while, because it just isn't fun enough to get you up in the morning.
Instructor comments: Tamilee is great. She is very mellow and explains everything you are doing in the workout very thouroughly. I love the fact that she isn't obnoxiuos and overly hyper like most work out instructers.
