The Firm: Total Sculpt plus Abs (BSS2)

Jen Carman
Year Released: 2003

Categories: Total Body Workouts

This is the weakest of the three videos from BSS2. It has fewer cardio segments and utilizes heavier weights, but I did not find it very challenging when compared to previous Firm videos. The abs segment is particularly weak since they incorporate the sculpting stick. This is an example of trying to use a piece of equipment when it adds virtually nothing to the exercise. I kept checking my form to see if I was doing the ab work properly because I felt no burn at all and abs are usually tough for me.
Jen Carmen is a great instructor, but the choreography and music isn't nearly as fun in this workout as it is in the other two.

Instructor Comments:
Jen Carmen is great as always. Her cueing is precise and she has just the right amount of enthusiasm.
