The Firm: Volume 4: Time-Crunch Workout

Susan Harris, Kai Soremekun
Year Released: 1990

Categories: Circuit Training (cardio and weights)


This is a very intense quick butt kicking workout! You WILL see results if you keep consistant. Kai does the warm up which sounded so rehearsed. I didn't understand some of the slang Firm terms she uses. Then this sexy sax starts playing and Susan does the stretches. Then comes the super intense short workout! Kai does the box aerobics using weights for the upper body. The stepping is just up and down. Very basic but if you use a 8-10 inch box and 5 lb dumbells, it's TOUGH! Then Susan does the heavy weights sections which are dips, lunges, squats and also heavy upper body. She does alot of pushups on her toes which is so impressive. Then Susan does some great abs and a nice towel stretch. Then Kai comes and does this Flashdance type of weird dance that I usually just watch since my face is beet red and I am so relaxed after my stretch. This really is a time crunch workout. I highly recommend it!

Instructor Comments:
Susan Harris outshines everyone in this video. She is classy, and has perfect form and cueing. She is no nonsense and really uses heavy weights. I love working out with her! Kai does a good job on the aerobics and has a real upbeat personality. I love the way she wears her hair. She needs to use different lipstick though. Orange doesn't suit her.
