Just a short review before I trade this. I thought this workout was okay. It's a nice thorough workout and the DVD is well chaptered. However, I find that I don't use it very much. Actually, I've had it for 9 months and have used it once.

The first standing leg sequence just isn't that tough as far as standing leg work goes. The middle upper body segment is more like aerobic weight training, which is sort of fun, but not the best upper body workout. The floor work is pretty good but if I'm going to do floor work I'd rather do Margaret Richard or classic Firm's. Actually, for high rep/low weight I just prefer Margaret. The abs are really tough on here, as always for Karen, but I really hate traditional ab work and won't do it in isolation.

I think this is a good workout which has stood the test of time (well, except for maybe some of the outfits on there :)) If you want to try some high rep/low weight training without spending a lot of money this would be a good choice. I just feel that I have better alternatives now.

Instructor Comments:
When I first started workout out I really liked Karen a lot. She's got a nice straightforward personality. I find her a lot more relaxed in this workout. She seems to have more fun with the really tough workouts!
