Format: DVD
I like the For Dummies series. They are far more superior than the Idiot's Guide due to the way the books are laid out and the authors the publisher chooses. Having this "bias" already, I was quite intrigued when I saw the DVD. What the heck, let's try it out. And the result is... not bad.
It's quick and dirty work out on all parts of the abdominal. I got a kick out of it. There are about 10 exercises in all plus warm up and cool down. The music is light, the teacher smiles a lot (a bit much really), no fuss no frill, just getting down to business. On the negative side, there are no pauses really between exercises. You have to stop your DVD player between exercises especially if you are a beginner. My guess is For Dummies is saving on run time. But at 12 bucks per DVD, I won't complain ... too much. :) Overall, I'm quite satisfied. You'll like it if you have some training in abs already; you'll have an easier time to catch on. It might be a bit hard for a beginner given the pace of the DVD. But it shouldn't stop you from giving this a shot. Just remember to pause in between exercises. Oh and one more thing. The DVD doesn't offer much exericse on the lower back (the opposite muscle group). You should always work out on opposite muscle group to avoid imbalance of muscle strength. So, do a few on your own. There are much written in the way of what lower back exercises are, so I'll spare you the details here. Have fun, and have a good sweat!!

I am a 66 year old female. (Not too many videos out there for people our age.) Although I appear younger. I'm an active person. I do aerobics, lifts weights and watch my diet. My problem has been with my stomach and flabby underarms or the triceps muscles.
When I first viewed this video with Gay Gasper. I thought this video wasn't for me. The instructor is too young and I won't be able to follow the workout, but after doing the workout with her, I was amazed how easy it was to follow each step.
Gay's explaination and slow execution of each step makes the workout easy and simple to undestand. I haven't had the video very long but I feel so much better when I am finished doing the exercises. I know I will be seeing positive results soon.
Even my husband who is not easily convinced with exercise videos has been trying the video out. I have not been able to master the last ab exercise (Forearm Plank with Alternating Leg Lift). Ouch! it's painful and hard to do. (But my husband can do it!) Oh Well, maybe it's the difference in the weight distribution and the strenght between us. But I will keep on trying. Overall, this is a great workout video for the abs. I recommend it to anyone regardless of age or sex.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This DVD has been out for quite a few years but I only came across it and starting using it a several years ago. Since that time I have kind of become a bit obsessed with it and have done the routine hundreds of times. I own several copies of this DVD for backup.

There are so many things that click with me on this routine. There are 10 exercises that you do 2 sets of 10 reps of each exercise and you get that basic routine done in 40 minutes. There is also an extra Fast Track Workout which you can do in 10 - 11 minutes. The instructor, Gay Gasper, is totally professional in her explanations of the exercises and words of encouragement.

One thing about this DVD is all exercises and ending stretch are done on the floor. The only standing portion is the beginning warm up. If you don't like floor work this definitely won't be a DVD you will get much use of. If you don't mind floor work I highly, highly recommend this DVD.
