The Firm: Ultimate Fat Burning Workout

Specially recommended for LD as he limbers up for Spring planting; also for anyone with a weight problem:
The Firm - Ultimate Fat Burning Workout

There is a series of these exercise videos - a must for anyone living in remote areas or cultural deserts. Visible Results in ten workouts, it says; emphasising the visible and maybe superficial. But the genuine health benefits are likely to come even sooner than that.

From an Amazon review:

The best thing about this workout DVD was that I was in my target heart rate zone for a very good portion (of the total video time), close to 35 minutes. For virtually this reason alone--and also because SOME of the moves were actually fun (just too repetitive)--I will keep this DVD, at least for now. I would recommend this workout to someone who doesn't mind a lot of repetition and who is looking for a basic but fairly intense floor cardio workout.

UPDATE 4/26/07: This workout has grown on me over time. I've found that if I skip the warm-up, the remaining routine feels much less repetitive, and I get a strong cardio workout in under 30 minutes. If I could change my rating, I would upgrade to 4 stars.

The DVD averages 4 stars, and if it grows on people over time, it's probably a shade better than that.

  2. I find that drinking beer or any other alcoholic beverage to excess tends to relieve ones mind from the reality of human stupidity...please forgive me for being in the now Pete..your friend for life and death (if we're lucky) the American...also known as WATCH OUT>>TRUMP THE CHILD WILL SOON HAVE CONTROL OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS.....and this isn't funny...the world should be very worried..

  3. The world is worried. Look up samsara, Marty. A society gets the 'leaders' it deserves. It's all a very scary learning curve. The enlightened ones can escape the nightmare of continual rebirth, so go easy on the pop!
