call me crazy, but Pure Burn, Super Strength workout dvd from The Biggest Loser's "nice" trainer, Bob Harper, really wasn't (and still isn't) as hard as the trailer led me to think. i've done this workout several times, and i haven't ever found myself pouring sweat the way the cast does and when i've done Jillian's strength dvd, No More Trouble Zones.
this is not to say that this isn't a great workout-- it is. the circuits are solid, and my muscles were challenged, but my heart rate never went above 60% and i just happen to think the cast overdramatized the "hard" parts. seriously, the moaning and "crying" were a bit much. as i made my way through the various well-cued set of exercises, i just kept wishing the vibe was different.
if you're a beginner or have some moderate experience with weight training, you will definitely be challenged. if you're a die-hard, experienced exerciser, you may find this workout to be boring. increaing weight helps, but it's not as dynamic as it could have been.
Pure Burn Super Strength comes with 2 workouts: 20 minues and 60 minutes. visit mytrainerbobdvd.com for more info.
