Ok, I admit it, I'm another Firm Vol. 5 fan! I have several Parts tapes with segments from this video, so I was always curious about it. I finally got it through the exchange, and I love it! Others have commented that there is not enough upper body work, but it is called "Abs Hips and Thighs" for good reason! As other reviewers have suggested, adding Upper Body would make a great combination.

The box work is great - it gets my heart rate up, especially on the double rewind. I really dread doing those leg presses twice, though! I also like the floor work. It is very intense. And the abs - wow! This is the hardest ab section for any Firm.

I'm really glad I got this video. It is just perfect for me (intermediate level) and I think I can increase poundage as my fitness level increases. If you need work in the buns/hip/thigh area, I highly recommend it!

Instructor Comments:
I really like her a lot. I like her personality - she seems very sincere and serious about the workout. Her cueing is not the best in the world, but I caught on pretty quickly.
