The Firm: Strength (aka: Strong Body)

I love this workout! I have used Firm videos for 5 years and this is one of my favorites. It has one of the toughest series of triceps work of any of my 8 Firm videos, as well as a killer inner thigh set. The aerobics work is fairly minimal and easy to follow. I saw it more as a time to give my burning muscles a break than as a time to really raise my heart rate. I was a little disappointed with the stretching, particularly in the beginning, but everything else about it is great! I will definitely be buying the Strong Heart companion video - if it's half as good as this I will be pleased.

Instructor Comments:
I liked Pam Cauthen. She has a couple of cueing mistakes and I would have liked more information in terms of what weight range to use for each exercise, but overall she has a pleasant manner that comes across on camera.
