Format: DVD
Equipment needed: Good trainers, barbell or at least three sets of dumbbells, a step or Swiss ball, and a fitness mat.

This is a hour long body pump style workout with music to match that motivates you throught the long sets.

Jari Love is the skilled instructor of the Ripped Series of workout routines and she guides you through the 15 exercises on this DVD. The weight used are lighter than those used in a weight room in the gym so high reps are used to gain the 'slim & lean' look. The emphasis is on creating lean muscle mass and not big muscle.

The warm up is a lighter shorter version of the workout, so you prime the muscle you are going to use in the routine. You use light or no weight during this section.

Each section is composed the same way. There is a introduction to the exercise, the muscle(s) that you are going to use and any modifications that are applicable. The exercise starts and is then modified to pulses or isometric holds. There is also a panel on the bottom left of the screen that show the weight chosen by each exerciser in total pounds and the number of reps per exercise. Don't be intimidated by these numbers, if you can not do all of them to start off with, it will be something to build up to in the future. Jari always encourages you to do as much as you possible can without causing yourself pain. At the end of the set or section they will be a quick stretch and time to break and take a sip of water. Exercises include squats, lunges-forward and backwards, biceps curls, press-ups, tricep pushups and overhead tricep press.

The workout ends with a short ab section and a soothing cool down and stretch.

Bonus feature: An interview with a dietician.

The more Jari Love workouts I get the more I enjoy her style of training (and I have to say for upper body toning effectiveness these seem to be by far and away the best I've found).

This is similar to rip and chisel in that it consist of 5ish min sections targeting specific muscles with tempo variations on exercises that cover the whole body. The legs circuits certainly get your heartrate up, and the pressup track is a killer. Love this!

The menu also has an option to select individual exercises which is a great feature if you're short on time or just want to do upper or lower body alone!

Anyone who is worried about not being able to play Jari love over here - all of her workouts I have so far are actually region zero so will play on any DVD player (despite some of them being labelled region 1 like this one!)

I'm developing into a huge fan of Jari sessions. I've always struggled to stick with weight training as I've never enjoyed it much but the time flys with these workouts and the results keep you motivated! If you're worried about getting too bulky - don't, the number of reps in the workouts mean you can't use massively heavy weights (I use between 2.5 and 5kg dumbells), so although some of the girls she uses in the DVD's are fairly muscular don't expect the work outs to have that effect - just much better definition and tone.

This is a toning session, so although the leg exercises will get you breathing hardish you'll never be too out of breath, just feeling the burn where you should! - there are some much more CV based Jari workouts (rip 1000) but this is an enjoyable way to do pure toning between your CV work!

I picked up this video in New York in 2007 after reading a recommendation (10/10) in a women's health magazine.

The rating was well deserved. The exercises are focused on areas of the body that can be of concern to most women. Also, there is always the option to modify exercises so that they are less or more difficult.

My favourite exercises in this hour-long video come under the bicep and tricep tracks. There are no frills here (fancy sets or popular music), just effective exercises. The push-up track is the most difficult for me but I am inspired by Jari's colleague, Laurie, who does them off her toes!

If you follow Jari's advice and watch what you eat plus incorporate the video a few times per week into your diary, you will achieve quick results.

I bought this after having recently discovered Jari Love's workouts. The one I most love is Jari Love: Get Extremely Ripped 1000 [DVD] [2009] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] which combines cardio and all-over toning which continually engages the arms and is incredibly tough, fun and effective. This 'Slim & Lean' workout by comparison is quite tedious.

It's a high rep workout using dumbells (and a barbell if you have one) and involves traditional moves like lunges, squats, bicep curls and pushups. You are shown one exercise which you then repeat for about 2-5 minutes (you might have to use lighter weights than what you're usually used to) The repetitions alternate so you do the full motion slowly and then also shorten the move and do quick 'pulses'. This method will work and get results but it's just not a fun workout at all and I found it very hard to stay motivated to the end. I've used many fitness DVDs and know the importance of having a workout that's actually enjoyable to do! I am also very much used to targeting just the arms when I'm using heavy weights for toning (e.g. 30 Minutes to Fitness: Weights Workout [DVD] [2009] [US Import]) and didn't like not being able to do this with this workout. It's very very tedious and I didn't feel the kind of satisfaction I feel doing one of my other weight routines.

A few plus points: the workout IS suitable for everyone - the instruction is very good throughout. The moves are slow and controlled so beginners will be fine doing it with lighter weights while more advanced will benefit by going heavier.

HASH(0x9742dedc) out of 5 stars Tough endurance workout... 10 Sept. 2006
By Teedums - Published on
Format: DVD
As a new fan of Jari Love really enjoying her Ripped workout, I was excited to pick up her new workouts. This one is definitely more advanced and intense, lots of reps here. I am not used to this type of training as I generally do higher weight/lower rep workouts like the Firm and others, so I was wasted the first time I did this one, had to go majorly light on the weights too.

Jari is joined by Laurie and Krista, who were in the first Ripped workout along with Brian. The transformations that Laurie and Krista have made since Ripped are quite inspiring. You will need some dumbells for this workout, barbells and plate weights are also used by some of the participants. This workout contains 12 tracks including warmup and stretch, each track has it's own song. There is a preview for each exercise so you know what's coming, plus they show each exercisers weight load plus display the number of reps that will be performed. I found this quite helpful. Here is a listing of the exercises...

squats (76 reps plus pulsing)
lunges (front/back, 94 total plus pulsing)
chest presses (64 plus pulsing)
bent leg deadlifts/deadrows (30 deadlifts, 54 rows plus pulsing)
pushups/rotator cuff (45 pushups, 32 rotator cuff)
tricep dips/french press (24 dips, 56 french press)
bicep/hammer curls (46 curls plus pulsing, 36 hammer curls)
one leg squats/wide squats (44 one leg plus pulsing, 38 wide plus pulsing)
overhead press/lateral raise (34 overheads, 28 lateral)

The warmup consists of some of the exercises you will see throughout the workout with really light weights. Krista shows beginner modifications for a lot of the exercises, plus there are other options given throughout such as doing the lunges in a static or stationary position, which I do myself. I used a range of 3-10 pound dumbells for this workout and it was plenty tough for me, as you can see there are lots and lots of reps, for some exercises maybe a few too many. The chest track was especially tough for me.

Still, I give this workout 4 stars, I think over time and once I get used to this kind of training, I will like the results that I see. Plus alternating light weight training with heavier weight training will shake things up a bit and keep things interesting. For those who thought that Ripped was too easy, Jari has come up with a challenge here. She has done a nice job in this one, I have this one and her 2 other workouts, I do them all and look forward to the new ones she has coming out late this year/early next year.

HASH(0x9742f00c) out of 5 stars An ouchie but a goodie 22 May 2006
By E. Evans - Published on
Format: DVD
I really like Jari Love's Slim and Lean. I had tried her original workout, "Get Ripped" and found it a bit easy for me as I am an advanced exerciser. That is definitely NOT a problem with this workout. Using relatively low weights (I used 5-12 pounds) and a high number of repetitions, Jari leads you through a series of exercises that target each muscle group. She adds on killer pulses to the moves on some muscle groups. My quads and shoulders felt the burn with all of those pulses! I liked the music in this workout better than the music of "Get Ripped". Some of the tracks were familiar to me from other workout videos (Cathe Friedrich) and they were definitely less headache-inducing. I also found the ab workout to be slightly more difficult than "Get Ripped", which is a good thing.

The background exercisers show a wide range of modifications, so this workout is great for people of all fitness levels. I recommend this one for people looking to tone up and increase their muscular endurance. You definitely get a big bang for your buck with this workout.

HASH(0x97e65a74) out of 5 stars Quite good :-) 30 April 2006
By Little Miss Cutey - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I don't know why Amazon isn't releasing this till July when you can already buy it online elsewhere, but I've got it already and this is what I think of it ...

After a quick warmup, there is a workout that is just under one hour of toning. You do the exercises standing and seated. Jari uses A LOT of repetitions - 45 push ups etc and the weights can be anywhere from 3lbs to 20lbs. That sounds like hard work and it is, but it's worth it because the results that I've seen with this dvd is more dramatic than any other workout I've done.

Each section begins with a quick one-on-one demo of the proper form that you need to avoid injury. At the end of the dvd is a segment all about healthy eating. If you do this often enough, it almost won't matter what you eat, because you will be burning so many calories even at rest, you'll practically be able to eat whatever you want. Admittedly 90 plus lunges are tough going, but try and work your way through this dvd and your friends will be envious of your new body.

HASH(0x97e65e64) out of 5 stars Jari is no joke!!! 16 Aug. 2007
By Smeggy - Published on
Format: DVD
It's amazing. I keep seeing better results with each passing month. (I've been doing ripped videos for a little over 3 months now.) I actually started seeing some changes in my body after doing this video just 3 times. Slim & Lean is a great workout & you will see results. It's given me the best results of anything i've tried yet. I rotate this video with a few other of jari's workouts. I like slim & lean & "ripped to the core" best. They get me huffing & puffing every time.

This workout is very no nonsense & straightforward weight training. using low weights with high reps to tone up. and it works! Even though it is a high # of reps, to me it does not seem boring at all because you are constantly changing up how you do each move (she'll vary the speed/counts for each move). Honestly i am so challenged by the workout that there is no room for boredom. I like her videos so much that i want to do them every day. I was previously the aerobics queen & thought i was in good shape. that is until i tried jari's videos. Now I feel myself getting stronger & stronger as the weeks go by. My arms look fabulous & i'm finally trimming down the tire on my waist that never goes away. I am SO toned up now. no leg jiggle or back of the arm flab. The pot belly i always have since my late twenties is finally shrinking. My back looks really great now & my posture is even better. I am still small & womanly, only now i am tight & toned. I love it.

Every fitness level can benefit from this video. While this is a tough workout that even the most advanced person will "feel the burn", beginners should not be intimidated. I would encourage anyone to incorporate this or any of jari's workouts into their routine. You can adjust the workouts to suit your fitness level by increasing or decreasing weights or by not using any at all to begin with. Jari also gives suggestions for modifications in case a particular move is too challenging or advanced. One of the video demonstrators shows an easy modification, while another modifies the move to make it more intense for those that are at a higher fitness level. You simply use whatever technique & weight load works for you.

Only problem is that now i feel like no other workouts are as intense so i have to force myself to do cardio in between ripped workouts. That's right, the former cardio queen is now hooked on getting ripped.

Note: I want to give a tip for those new to weight lifting: I've noticed that Jari's recommendation of 3 times a week is too frequent for me. My muscles seem to need more time to rest. I was getting too fatigued & sore doing her routines 3 times a week so i only do them about twice a week now & i feel great & have wonderful results. If you find you are very sore when it is supposedly time to do the video again just hold off one more day & let those muscles rest up. Or if after some time you fell like you are not progressing well than maybe you will benefit from more rest time in between. let those muscles have time to repair themselves. You'll see great results if you do.......have fun getting ripped :)

HASH(0x9742f420) out of 5 stars Solid, Thorough Total Body Workout 27 July 2006
By Shelley K. Gilbertson - Published on
Format: DVD
Simple format here, one body part per song - there are no compound exercises here. High rep format, and Jari encourages you to go as heavy on the weights as you can manage. I found myself using 5, 8 and 10 lb. weights, although I did use 3 pounders at the end of the shoulder section. I tended to start out heavier and then download halfway or farther into each section for the upper body stuff. Good, thorough workout. There are three exercisers working with Jari, who show different modifications of the exercises. This workout is one you can certainly grow with by upping the weights used. Ab section is very brief, and I found it too easy. I will add ankle weights and/or a barbell plate on my chest next time. Thorough stretch at the end, although the stretches aren't held very long. Jari also does brief stretching for the body part worked after each section. This workout would be great if you were in a time crunch. The whole thing is about 60 min., but you can pick and choose the exercises you want to do, so you can customize it to the body part(s) you want to work and adjust it to the amount of time you have. The workout is certainly not "rah rah" exciting and a ton of fun, but the time does go by quickly because although you work one body part per track, you do several different exercises for that body part so you are often switching what you are doing. Music was fine - nothing to write home about, but it had a good, steady beat which is needed for the workout. Jari is encouraging, but it would be nice if she'd smile more and look like she was having some fun instead of just putting in her time! Otherwise, she's a good instructor. Form instructions are given at the beginning of each track, and Jari gives reminders throughout the workout.
