Love this Workout!
This is a great workout. It works all the muscle groups and is challenging at any level with the options Kathy gives to follow a lighter group or the group that utilized heavier weights. The other information contained on this DVD is very useful for any fitness level!

Kathy Smith – Lift Weights to Lose Weight, Vol. 2

March 19th, 2013 Comments off

Title : Kathy Smith – Lift Weights to Lose Weight, Vol. 2
ASIN : B000ILYYUS



Health and fitness experts are exhorting us to incorporate weight training into our fitness programs–it’s especially important for women for building bone density, but the truth is that working with weights increases your metabolism (are you listening? this means more fat-burning) all day. As with the cardio workout, Smith has designed two 20-minute workouts; on hectic days, doing the first alone is plenty, and on other days doing both programs will combine to help you see fast results. The movements are basic (including the all-important single-arm rows, key to building back muscles and keeping posture correct), and the delivery inviting and completely unintimidating. If you’ve been thinking of beginning a weight program, this (and a couple of sets of inexpensive hand weights) is really all you need to get started. Smith and crew will leave you pumped. –Anne Hurley


Consumer Review
A Terrific Workout with Terrific Results
I love this tape. I got it about six months ago and have been doing it about twice a week and I couldn’t be happier with the results. This tape will get your arms and legs in terrific shape (the ab program is a little too short for me, frankly) if you do it faithfully, and the tape is so enjoyable, that it’s easy to do faithfully. As she points out in the video, building muscle helps you lose weight, and this video will help you reach your goal. As other reviewers have stated, she offers two tracks, complete with guidance as to who should do what when, and recommends beginning weights. Her direction is terrific and the tape really flows. She’s energetic, without being overly peppy (as I find her in some other videos). Unlike a lot of other tapes, you don’t waste time listening to instruction, you are working out for the entire 40 minutes. Kathy Smith has split the tape into two 20 minute workouts (upper and lower body) which is really helpful when you’ve got limited…

Consumer Review
Tough enough for a former Marine.
After gaining a waist size on my pants, I decided to eat less and work out more. A decade ago I got in great shape by doing a lot of aerobics. But since then, I’ve drifted away from the health club scene. I didn’t want to rejoin one, so I created a home aerobics studio in my garage. The DVD format offers a more flexible workout experience than VHS (no rewinding, easy navigation), so I bought a 13″ TV with a built-in DVD player. As for exercise equipment, I went for dumbbells, ankle weights, and a rubber-coated Body Bar. Then I stocked up on different exercise DVDs that utilized these accessories, along with ones that relied on body mechanics or were applicable to my martial arts training (such as Pilates and kickboxing). For now, I’ve avoided workout programs that require less traditional equipment, such as steps, balls, and so on (although Vol. 2 of this set includes a bonus ball workout).

One of the first exercise DVD sets I bought was the Kathy Smith Timesaver -…

Timesaver Lift Weight to Lose Weight includes two highly efficient 20-minute workout routines, one focusing on the upper body; the other on the lower body. The unique Dual Track System enables you to alternate high and low resistance to gain strength and avoid workout plateaus, and can be easily combined for an amazing total body routine. Perfect for all fitness levels. Lifting weights adds lean muscle required to increase metabolism and helps burn calories. It also increases bone density to improve posture and prevent osteoporosis. Bonus workouts include Fabulous Abs and Stronger Back plus Kathy’s tips on “Looking Thinner with Great Posture.”Health and fitness experts are exhorting us to incorporate weight training into our fitness programs–it’s especially important for women for building bone density, but the truth is that working with weights increases your metabolism (are you listening? this means more fat-burning) all day.

Twenty Minutes FLIES By!
A great tape for adding weight training to your exercise routine.

A caveat about equipment you’ll need. I watched the intro and it said all you need to get started is a set of dumbbells and either a chair or a weight bench. I went w/ the bench. Then I got to the second workout, where they suggested ankle weights, and also the exercises required a straight-backed chair, which I did not have, as I bought the bench. Sigh! (If I did this over again, I’d skip the bench cause a chair will work just as well).

That said, these are two fast, fun workouts that produce results. The lower body, especially, seems to burn my legs up but then, maybe that’s where I need the most work. The mercifully-short abs/back "bonus" workout is over before ya know it, which (if you hate abs work as much as I do) is a good thing. I can really feel a difference, though, so hey, it’s working!

The background music is cheesy but fun, and Kathy’s enthusiasm is infectious. If her motivational…
