The Great Dumbbell DVD - Free shipping
Over the years I have built up a significant home gym library of books, VHS tapes and DVDs. I am a fan of Andre Potvin s Great Exercise Handbooks and was excited to hear that The Great Dumbbell exercises were available on a newly released DVD. I have always trusted Andre and those that he teaches because of his extensive knowledge and background in health and fitness training and education. He truly cares about improving people s lives and keeps at the forefront of the industry using the most current exercise research science available. So I was sure this would be an awesome workout....and I was right.
This is THE most progressive and complete strength training workout that I have ever seen. Each exercise is laid out with an incredible visual of exactly what muscles you will be engaging throughout the exercise. There is no other DVD (that I m aware of) that allows you to see which muscles are targeted. This gives me the ability to focus on the muscles I should be using for each exercise. It s honestly like having a personal trainer RIGHT THERE!
What I liked most about the exercises themselves is that the movements are slow and controlled. It forces you to engage the muscle groups throughout each rep. This is a vast difference from most of my other strength training workouts that use momentum to complete each rep.
Every exercise is done in 2 sets and the DVD incorporates 30 second breaks between sets so you don t have to watch a clock. It also features helpful information at the start of the DVD and offers beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. I have done this workout a few times since I received it and absolutely LOVE it!
I have purchased, and been disappointed by, more than my fair share of workout/strength training DVD s....but the Great Dumbbell DVD delivers! I can t wait for the next in the series keep em coming!
