Final Review: Inside Out Series by Bob Harper

So far, I have written individual reviews for the four first workouts of the Inside Out Series: Body Rev Cardio Conditioning, Pure Burn Super Strength, Yoga for the Warrior, and Bob’s Workout.  The first three workout DVDs can be found at Target, Amazon.com, CollageVideo.com, and a variety of other retailers.  The last workout of the series, Bob’s Workout, can only be purchased directly at http://www.mytrainerbob.com.  After completing all the workouts, I have to say that I’ve been utterly pleased with my purchase.  Bob’s teaching style gave a fresh breath of air into my workout routine, and I have been thoroughly addicted sense.  You can look at the individual reviews for each specific workout, but I wanted to outline some comments for the series as a whole below: Read more…

Initial Impressions: Bob Harper’s Yoga for the Warrior

March 25, 2011 2 comments

Yes, its the last DVD review of the First Inside Out series — I say first because since staring this journey with Bob, he’s released Kettlebell workouts as well which I have tried and loved.  And of course, I’ll have a review of the whole series in another post, but this is the last individual DVD review.  Is there are a surprise I saved Yoga for last?  I know I need to work on my flexibility, but I am probably the most lazy when it comes to working on this aspect in my health than any other (next to sleeping more).   I am a picky yoga vidiot — despite being of Indian origin, my clearly-wound-up-too-tight personality has gotten in the way of be ever fully immersing myself into the yoga culture and thought.  Just too stressed, too type A, I suppose.  So finding an instructor that doesn’t bore me to death or push too many moves that are meant, I dunno, for a performance artist at Cirque Du Soleil, can be a bit of a challenge.  I’m happy to say that Bob really did impress me with his mix of instruction, modifications, and vinyasas.  I doubt this DVD will ever be out of of my collection.

Initial Impressions: Bob’s Workout (where he doesn’t actually work out)

I know, I probably should do the Yoga workout next, but I did Bob’s workout instead.  For those of you who have read my previous reviews of Bob’s Body Rev Cardio Conditioning and Pure Burn Super Strength (he really should think of short titles), you know that I’m beginning to think highly of Bob Harper.  Since I bought the set from his website, I was privvy to receiving (erm, paying) for Bob’s special workout: Bob’s Workout (nice short title there!).  The workout is split in two, and it’s description on the cover is completely misleading.  That aside, if you like circuit workouts, its a really nice one to put in your collection.

Initial Impressions: Bob’s Pure Burn Super Strength (or how I fell in love with the Bob)

February 20, 2011 1 comment

I never once imagined that I would fall in love with a strength workout more than a cardio workout, but indeed I have with Bob.  Cardio queen that I am, Bob managed to make a high rep strength workout with enough cardio infused into it that you get an awesome sweat and are grinning like an idiot almost the whole time.  I know there have been a lot of comparisons between Bob and Tony Horton (P90x), and I can tell you it’s not true.  I don’t even have P90x (I have previewed some), and I can tell you, its not true.  This workout is different than any strength workout I’ve done on DVD, and I’m thrilling to having purchased it.

Initial Impressions: Bob’s Body Rev Cardio Conditioning (aka, Bob Broke my Back!!)

I ordered Bob The Trainer’s Complete Collection (which is weird because it doesn’t contain the newest contain the new kettlebell workouts so not very complete) last week, but to my surprise and my husband’s frustration, DH had bought me the Body Rev Cardio Conditioning workout already for V-day.  After having a particularly bad day at work, my hubbie gave me the “extra copy” since my set had not arrived to preview.  Optimistic for the pick me up, I popped it into the computer to preview.  The next morning, I decided to have it go.
