Billy Blanks Tae Bo PT 24/7 Review: Cardio

Billy Blanks PT 24/7: Cardio 
Billy Blanks, 2011 **** (3.5 of 5 stars)

Billy leads this 32 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). Mostly cardio work but I really felt it in my shoulders & upper back the next day because of the bands that hook to your feet & PT gloves.

Billy starts out showing you a few reps, then you join in at half pace, then you up it to a "cardio pace." Exercises include: jab cross, jump rope, upper cuts, hooks, speed bags, shadow boxing, jogging, and punch combos. You finish with punch & tri extensions, pushups, and bicycle crunches w/ punches.

I rate this an intermediate workout. There is downtime between the moves while Billy is demo'ing, but you can jog in place. This one contains no complicated choreo or tricky combos, easy to catch onto. I do wish it moved along a bit quicker but good for a less energetic day. I like Billy in this one, not over the top and his counting & cuing are on. I received this to review.


  1. Cupcakes are adorable - I bet he loved them!

  2. I like that the Billy Blanks Cardio DVD has combos and short breaks between the sets...two things I need! :)

  3. Glad to read that the band is used for Cardio too!
