Billy Blanks PT 24/7 Reviews: Ripped Core

Tae Bo Billy Blanks PT 24/7: Ripped Core
Billy Blanks, 2011 ***** (5 of 5 stars)

Billy leads this xx min w/o in a nice open gym with 7 backgrounders (including Shelly). You will need your PT gloves & bands for this workout (though you could easily do without). Lots of great standing and finishes w/ a bit of floor cardio work. 

Exercises include: torso twist, upper cuts, knee block & cross punch, tight torso twists, side to side rocker abs, punch & kick combos, jogging, hooks, jacks, bob & weave, pivot kicks, fast walk forward & kick, side step squats adding a hop, 2 & 3 limb planks, power sit ups, V hold punches, and long leg lift crunches. 

I rate this a solid intermediate core workout. I really like standing core work and loved the addition of the band to this work. My core was SORE after doing this one. Fun and effective core routine! I like Billy in this one, not over the top and his counting & cuing are on. I received this to review.


  1. The workout looks great. I love standing core work!

  2. I need to work on my core! After 2 kids, I am prone to back strain, and even had to do physical therapy for a while. The problem: weak core!

  3. My core is my weakness, I could really use a lot of help. This sounds like a great workout. Thanks for the review!
