Good targeted workout for Tae Bo buffs

four out of five stars

Tae Bo Ultimate Abs/Butt” is a great targeted workout for Tae Bo enthusiasts who have already mastered many of the moves playstation 3 spiele download kostenlos vollversion. If you’re new to Tae Bo, this isn’t the workout for you – Billy switches from one exercise to the next fairly quickly, giving you little time to recover in between segments firefox downloaden — gratis webbrowser. Nor does he explain the correct form for many of the moves (most of which you should be familiar with if you’ve worked your way through another TB video or two) lieder aus youtubeen legal. The two 55-minute workouts on this DVD also test your endurance, so if you’re out of shape, a newbie to TB, or have a hard time with the Basic workouts, you should hold off on “Tae Bo Ultimate Abs/Butt.”

That said, those who have been doing Tae Bo for some time will enjoy these “new” workouts, even though there isn’t any new footage to speak of videos von facebooken online. Rather, Billy and his crew have gathered 55 minutes of the best abdominal and gluteal exercises from previous videos and edited them together into two separate workouts radio psr app herunterladen. Each consists of a roughly 5 minute warmup, followed by 30+ minutes of kicking and/or punching, 15-20 minutes of floor exercises, and a quick 3-5 minute cool down starcraft kostenlos downloaden.

Each workout does a great job of targeting and working the desired areas. I especially like the variety of floor exercises in the Ultimate Abs workout – rather than doing a zillion crunches, Billy mixes it up a bit and introduces a number of new exercises vmware rechnung herunterladen. Unfortunately, the floor portion of the Ultimate Butt workout just repeats the same two exercises over and over – be prepared to do plenty of to-the-side leg lifts and roundhouse kicks, with a couple of other drills sprinkled in here and there time viewer herunterladen!

However, “Tae Bo Ultimate Abs/Butt” isn’t quite perfect. Like many Tae Bo workouts, some of the exercises are repeated more on one side than the other, and some are only done on one side, period ebook dateien kostenlosen! This is really unforgivable – since the tape was edited together, Billy and his production assistants could (SHOULD) have hunted around for the best examples of each exercise fotos von der dropbox herunterladen. For each uneven set, I could easily think of another video on which the set was performed with equal repetitions on each side. Also, the editing is a little choppy – before one segment is over (i.e., before you’ve reached the last 8-count), the class is already starting on the next exercises. This makes it quite difficult to maintain the correct form and do the entire set. Of course, after doing the workout a few times, you learn to anticipate these difficulties and compensate for them. Yet, it’s still a major gripe – they had the opportunity to fix many of the problems present in their live/complete workouts and still they dropped the ball. C’mon, guys, listen to your loyal followers already!
