Great Weighted Workout

I'm sure someone else did a very through break down of this tape as it seems to be very popular with VF'ers. I find the upper- body weight section frustrating-it moves too fast for heavy weights and when I use light weights I don't feel anything (except in the rotor cuff which seems to be Karen's favorite muscle to work-how many exercises does she have where that seems to be the only muscle that's working?)

As for the leg and ab work-it just doesn't "do it" for me. Give me the FIRM parts videos anyday-at least the scenery changes so I have something to distract me while my abs are burning!

Finally-this video seems dated. The music and outfits are so late 1980's-and I think this tape was made in the 90's! This one, ladies and gentlemen, is headed for the exchange!

Instructor Comments:
Karen does cue very well, but I just can't get into her tapes. To me, she always seems robot-like. I have never found her very motivating. In addition, on this tape she asks the particpants to make noise (she says something like 'I can't hear you!') and this leads to some irritating "whooping". I will never understand why producers of exercise tapes feel that home exercisers enjoy hearing other wise sane people yelling "Whoo." Believe it or not, that's not what motivates me to buy a tape! :)
