The workout in this video is decent... And I love kathy Smith.... BUT there seems to be alot of wasted time in this workout. She stops the exercises to do a little anatomy lesson, to show you where the muscle is, blah blah blah. While these lessons are a nice thing to add, it becomes bothersome to have to go through everytime you do the video. It would be better to have this at the END or even the begining. Also, between some exercises the camera just cuts to it. (When Kathy and the others are switching sides, or changing position) The camera doesn't follow the people, so you aren't left with enough time to change position as well. I also didn't give this a higher rating because it is a little too easy for what is made to seem like an intermediate /advanced workout. This may just be because I am in good shape... On the plus side, the video is well balanced and I did feel it in my buns the next day! It is a thorough workout for the lower body and will produce results. I would recommend Kathy's Lift Weights to Lose Weight video instead, as it the time will fly and it is much easier to tailor the workout to meet your needs when you advanced in fitness levels.
