The best I ever looked was when I was using this video everyday. I wouldn't recommend that knowing what I know now. It is important to know that I've never been past the intermediate level. I've been using The Complete Workout video for 15 years (since 1990)!
This is a 70 minute workout with an option to break it into 2 segments of 55 minutes, doing a warm-up, upper body, aerobics (30 minutes), and stretches on one day, and aerobics (the same 30 minute segment), lower body, and stretches on the next day. Abs are included in the lower body workout.
The aerobics section is broken down into High Impact and Low Impact with an instructor demonstrating each at all times during the aerobics section. This allows you to grow with the video.
The upper body is excellent and all you need are some hand weights preferrably two sets one lighter, 5 lbs. maybe, and one heavier, 8 lbs., for an average person. Some of the upper body exercises will be more beneficial with heavier weights.
The lower body is also an excellent workout. You may want a mat for the lower body work if you do not have carpet.
All exercises can be done with or without weights, and you can add weight to all for increased resistance and a more strenuous workout.
The ab work is challenging enough to take you through the intermediate level.
The Complete Workout uses traditional exercises including: arm raises, bicep curls, shoulder shrugs, push ups (choose on knees or not), leg raises (inner and out thigh), buttock compressors, lunges, sit ups including obliques, and much more.
Jane is the best instructor I've ever seen. The movements are never rushed, the counts are the same for both sides of the body, and she is great about reminding you of proper form! The video quality is not amateurish and is of the highest quality.
I can't tell you about the Stress Reduction Program just yet as I have just ordered it with The Complete Workout on DVD - to replace my aging VHS. I can tell you that you will not be disappointed with The Complete Workout especially if you prefer traditional moves. You will "Feel It"! Speaking of which, I feel $11.68 is good price for 2 workouts that you may never get tired of! Also, check out The Firm which are highly rated.
