I loved this workout. It's very hard to find solid weight workouts for advanced exercisers on videos these days. I found the upper body workout (Wendy gave a great description of it in her review) much harder than that in the Firm. She works every muscle of your upper body (and believe me you can feel it when you're done!) The lower body workout was very good also, although I do think the Firm's Tortoise is a little tougher. The abs were pretty difficult for me (especially after all that work) and I almost didn't make it through it. All in all, my body was quivering after that workout and I was definitely sore the next day. I was glad I didn't do the Maximum Cardio tape on the same day! Great workout for advanced exercisers.
Once again, Cathe's wonderful in this video. She gives you plenty of instructions so you know exactly the right form and you can see her struggle a bit with some of the harder reps...which makes you feel just a little better about your quivering muscles!
