Stay tuned for plenty of fab Fitness Favorite dvd reviews and keep reading for a detailed review of The FIRM: Power Cardio originally released in 1999 on VHS. Now available on DVD!!!! This is an awesome workout that I never previously had the pleasure of trying- thank you Fitness Favorites for putting it on DVD!!!

Dale Brabham, 2013

Dale leads this 43 min cardio + strength workout in the mansion set with a group of background exercisers. You will need a step, dumbbells, ankle weights, a weighted ball and optional dowel & barbell for this workout. 

After an active warmup Dale leads you through a weighted ball series: ball prep, walking squat series, & hop scotch. Step work: fun kick series, knee ups, & mambo. Box & floor 4 limb work: lunge & glute pinch, travel squats & curl, & side step upright row. Floor cardio: v step, shuffle digs, jacks, double knees, bunny hops, calf pumps, & step touch. Strength work: bi curls, French press, pliet & upright row, hover squats, pushups, supermans, donkey kick series, plank knee drops, and a crunch series. The workout concludes with a stretch & pelvic floor work.

I rate this a solid intermediate routine, more challenging than most of the other newly released FIRMs. I was pleasantly surprised with the fun factor, effectiveness, and the punch that workout packed. Easy to modify up or down depending on the impact & poundage used. Dale is an excellent instructor and this is really yet another, must-have Fitness Favorites FIRM workout! I received this dvd to review.
