Margaret Richard

Who still uses her? I have a couple of her dvds and I think I'm going to dust them off. I love my compound moves but maybe I need to switch it up a bit and do some isolated moves for awhile.

I appreciate Margaret's slow and controlled tempo. Her routines are a great way to work on form.

What's your favorite MR workout?

I like "Beauty To The Bone" and some of her Unplugged Series.

I'm a big MR fan. I like most of her dvds but I am partial to the unpluggeds, particularly the 1900 series. I think it's a little more challenging. I like her All My Best dvds too. They are 4 30-ish minute routines compiled from various of her dvds.

I splurged on her streaming and even though I love the body electric shows on there I haven't used it all that much and it's pretty pricey even at a discount. But they're around 25 minutes similar to the unplugged format.

Love Margaret! Can't pick a favorite though. I've got all her workouts.

That's a tough question because there's so much variety and it depends on how you want to work your body

Home Improvement is a wonderful lower body workout whilst Sculpture has a very good upper body workout. My favorite all around workout would be Good 'N Strong. On the days where I don't have much energy, I like the Good for You workouts.

You ladies have reminded me of all great routines she offers. I was fine with the two dvds I have,... until I read your replies. LOL

I like the idea of the Unplugged Series. 25 mins, which is perfect for me. Just like CS Series. I can add some cardio at the end to round it out to about 45 mins.

meant to add that "Fitness Becomes You" was on my wish list because it's one of the few with standing LB. Margaret has quite a bit of floor work for LB in most of her works - it's her signature preference.

i took advantage of her DVD sale a few years ago. for many years, her DVDs were so expensive. now that she has gone digital (you can buy the downloads from her), her DVDs have gone way up in price.

Count me in as a fan. I have others, but I like her unplugged series for the scenery. Her workouts look easy - until you try them and your muscles start screaming.
