Bit weird... NOT worth paying more than a couple of quid for!
on 24 February 2014
I felt a bit confused during this DVD. Nothing really seems to happen!
I’ve only tried the bums/tums (second) part/workout of the DVD, and I’m not in a huge rush to try out the upper body or legs parts until the next time I get bored of my other workout DVD’s.
I only paid £2 for this DVD and that’s the only reason I’m giving it 3 stars rather than 2. The warm up takes ages (including what seems like an unnecessary amount of head rolls/shoulder lifts – I know it’s important to warm up the neck but it was excessive). The ‘high intensity’ dance routine bit I quite enjoyed but Jennifer keeps saying ‘Phew! I’m worn out now!’ etc.. and I was just feeling nicely warmed up. It made me wonder if I was doing it right! I had a slight glisten on, but wasn’t out of breath or thirsty. There was only one opportunity to put the moves together and do the full routine.
The music isn’t good. Nothing you would recognise from particular shows, etc. It’s filmed like they are back stage… it’s all a bit half-arsed and random.
The cool down, like the warm up, goes on too long. Especially considering how low-impact the workout is.
Don’t pay more than 2 or 3 quid for this DVD. Not worth it. Also, I love the Liverpool accent – I lived there for ten years until recently. But her voice is very whiny and squeaky… it starts to great very quickly. Sorry Jen!
