This is a parts tape from the Firm compiled from various Firms from the library set days. Its a great strength workout with a bunch of leads. The dvd has 3 options- 2 40ish minute workouts or 1 killer 75 minute w/o (they omit 1 set of w/u's & c/d's in the premix version). You will need a FL or step/tall step and a variety of dumbbells for this one.

There is no liaison in this one like some of the parts tapes-the transitions are smooth IMO and it flows together well. You will see a lot of the typical Firm type strength work in this one: leg press, lunges, dips, clean and press, lat rows, and a bit of floor work like pushups, ab work, bridge, and pec flys. Not a lot of LB floor work though.

SO much of this strength work really gets my heart rate up so I know Im burning a lot of calories-especially for a strenght workout. One of the many reasons I love my Firms! The pace is nice-they move right along but I didnt feel rushed at all. I was able to heavy up nicely for a Firm.

This is a great versatile w/o that I would highly recommend for any lover of the old time Firms. Its challenging and offers a lot of variety and time options. I would rate this a higher intermediate if you heavy up on it. All the leads to a great job and the cueing is good all around.

  3. Thank you Susan! I will of course post pics of the partay!

    Laura, LMAO! Im a fan of food in general so there are very few things that I dont like (alas a weight problem)...

  4. Congrats on your new monitor - I'm jealous!

    And that "Awkward" LOLcat literally made me LOL - the expressions are priceless!

  5. Hi, Lindsey - WTG on the new monitor! Of course, I love the screen saver!

    Have you tried the sardine pasta? Just wondering if it's good - unlike Laura, I love sardines - and they're so healthy for you. Just wondering if you've tried it yourself...

  6. Red-I re-cracked up whilst reading your comment! I had to send that one to DH. The facial expressions are so perfect!

    Karen, I did try it and it was good! I added some chicken broth when reheating it. It had a nice fresh taste to it :) Let me know if you try it.

  7. I may tweak it a bit - I'll let you know if I try it!

  8. Ya I altered it from its original version a bit. Above is exaclty what I did (maybe more herbs though). Let me know if you have any suggestions :)
