This is a 2012 DVD re-release of the 1986 VHS workout.

Body Sculpting Basics is a total-body workout designed by Founder of The Firm Anna Benson. Susan Harris leads a routine that astonished the exercise community when first introduced. For the first time, weights & aerobics were combined in one program. This is now a proven best method for simultaneous fat loss and muscle toning in the least amount of time.

Equipment: Assorted dumbbell pairs (5-20 lbs.) and optional ankle weights, and an 18" 2x4" board.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for absolute beginners

I'm in my late twenties, about 10 pounds overweight, but I exercise daily. I bought this video - my first from the FIRM - because I needed a change from my regular workout. In a nutshell, it was HARD. I was so sore afterwards that I couldn't believe I was breezing through my other workouts and barely breaking a sweat. This video makes you work, particularly in the legs (squat city). That said, I wouldn't recommend it for people who are overweight, have knee problems, or are just starting to work out. Twenty pounds ago, there was no way I'd be able to do even half of the movements in this video. If you're a beginner who doesn't mind building up to the full number of reps (VERY SLOWLY!), that's fine. But if you want a workout that doesn't discourage you because the movements are too hard, this isn't the video for you.

For intermediate to advanced users, you'll need: 1 wooden board or an acceptable substitute to maintain proper form (about 14 inches long, 3 inches in depth and 1.5 inches high), at least 3 sets of hand weights (ultra light, medium, and heavy), and 1-2 sets of ankle weights (light and medium). The workout is based on "pyramids" - alternating between light, medium, and heavy weights for maximum toning. DON'T be discouraged by this. You can get away with far less equipment and still work, but the results are pretty amazing with the full set of gear. You do not need the step (commonly used in other FIRM videos) for this workout.

Body Sculpting Basics is well worth it for people who are exercising but not seeing results. You'll get them with this workout and then some!
