Get Hard: Arms and Shoulders

If you want a video that hits the arms and shoulders from all directions, this video certainly delivers. For each body part (deltoids, biceps, triceps, forearms) you first get a few sets of one muscle building exercise, then super sets or "tri-sets" of 2-3 different shaping exercises to hit the muscle from different angles. I have done this video about 5 or 6 times now and am still pleasantly sore the next day. This is definitely a gym-style workout--no choreography at all.

I would say that this video is best for people with previous experience training with weights, because although Cory *says* good form is important, she gives practically no form pointers. This isn't a big deal for those of us who could do a bicep curl or military press in our sleep, but others should keep that in mind.

I must confess that I didn't care for Cory's manner and all the "pumped shoulders are sexy" type comments. I exercise early in the morning, and I guess I'm just not ready for her personality at 6 am--it doesn't bother me so much that I don't like the video, but eventually I might just memorize the routine and do the sets on my own.
