i just went out and bought billy blanks taebo get celebrity fit cardio today. ( at walmart) and i just now finished doing the complete workout and let me tell you i feel awesome, it's very hard and while doing it you feel like your'e getting you @$$ handed to you but in the end its great!! So just in case anyone wanted to know.
I have the Billy Blanks Bootcamp set with the resistance bands and it is awesome!!! there's three dvds: beginner, ab, and advanced. I haven't quite gotten myself to try advanced yet because the first 2 are pretty friggin intense. Soon though... soon.
Would definately recommend for the average worker-outer.
I bought Billy's Bootcamp-Ultimate Bootcamp and it was the WORST exercise dvd I've ever done. It's not that the exercises are bad, it's everything else. The constant counting drove me bonkers, he would stop or change an exercise on an odd count, like 3, or 5. And the point where he was in a deep plie and his zipper folded outward and every time he raised his arms the bands would catch on his zipper. It looked totally obscene and should have been edited out. Even Shelly was caught totally off guard and didn't know what he was doing TWICE. I'm going to burn it.
I agree, no music to keep you motivated. That being said the first time I lost weight I did his videos all the time and you get a great work out. I had to use a CD during it (no ipods back then). This time around I am really enjoying turbo jam- similar type of exercise but with music and no counting.
