Billy Blanks PT 24/7 Review: Combo Sculpt

Today's Review: Billy Blanks Tae Bo PT 24/7: Combo Sculpt
Billy Blanks, 2011 **** (4 of 5 stars)

Billy leads this 32 minute cardio & strength min workout with Shelly & 6ish other background exercisers. They work out in a nice gym set. You will need your PT gloves & bands for this workout.

 Exercises include: side kick, side punch & side leg lift, lunge & punch down, speed bag w/ butterfly jog, wide step up w/ military press, burpees, fast knee pulls, military press & static pliet, front & back kicks, fast punches w/ static squat, and static lunge & speed bag. Mostly cardio with some light strength work. You perform each exercise or combo and then up the pace to a "cardio pace."

I rate this a solid intermediate workout.  The pace in this one is good- not as many breaks as the Cardio dvd. Billy's cuing is good as is his demeanor. I worked up a nice sweat. I received this dvd to review.


  1. Your sister is SO TALENTED!! Love the pics. Wish I were local!!


  2. I had the original Tae Bo a loooooong while ago and loved it. I'm intrigued by these new DVDs.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your photoshoot shots!

  3. Thank you Maria :) If she moves here- even more reason for you guys to come visit :)

    Thanks Ang!!! I had those original Tae Bo VHS too! Loved them! This set is good- I like the addition of the bands- my upper back & core really feel it!

  4. I had gastric bypass 4 months ago and I have lost 100 pounds and I am needing something to help tone and continue to lose. This looks like it would really help me.

  5. Love working out with bands and started working out with Billy over 12 years ago

  6. Like the idea that it's 32'. That's easier to fit into my schedule instead of the hour long ones that seem to be more prevalent.
