Jari Love’s Get Extremely Ripped 1000 Hardcore – Review and GIVEAWAY

I’m honored to have been given an opportunity to review Jari Love’s “Get Extremely Ripped 1000 Hardcore”. Collage Video sent me this video a couple of weeks ago (along with some others, so those reviews will be coming soon, too!).

Before I even opened the package, the very first thing I noticed was that the title was extremely long. That intrigued me for some reason, so I poked around online about Jari Love a little bit and found that she has received much acclaim for her “Get RIPPED” series. The newest one, “Get Extremely Ripped 1000 Hardcore”is the latest in that same series. Hence the longer name. She bases her workouts on science, and I can appreciate that. For more information about Jari Love, visit her site.

Okay, onto what I thought….

Get Extremely Ripped 1000 Hardcore, first of all, was a little sneaky. The set is unassuming. There’s a step (platform) in front of most of the cast. I see that the video is only 30 minutes long. (yay!) But, it snuck up on me. Didn’t look very hard. It was.

Jari starts out with a warm up, of course. And after the first set of cardio, I think, “oh, this isn’t too bad”. And it wasn’t. But I didn’t realize there was much more to come. I’m used to cardio intervals that are very short. These intervals were more like 5 minutes. And they increased in intensity. So yes, I was dying about halfway through the video. I was relieved that it was not easy. The weight intervals were quick and to the point. Nothing too fancy, and working upper and lower body at the same time, which is a very time-efficient way of working out. I was sweating up a storm before the end of the first interval of each.

I got a little confused a few times, I think her cueing was a little short. And also the cast members were doing several different modifications. I’m used to having one person as a ‘modifier’ to watch in a workout video. But in this one, there were two people without steps. And those two people did things slightly differently. Then there were 3 people with steps, one being Jari. But Jari even did a modification on several moves. So you had to watch the other 2 cast members to try to follow what the moves should be if you were not modifying. I would prefer that Jari, as the instructor did the entire video as the ‘goal’ person to watch and then only had 1 other person in the background somewhere doing the modifications. I just found it too confusing to try to keep up with who was doing what when it was always changing.

Overall, I’d recommend this video for people who are looking to lose fat quickly and effectively. If you’re new to exercise, definitely follow the folks in the video with no step, and there’s also different ‘levels’ Jari points out during the cardio portions. You can always stick to level 1 and work your way up! The science is here, definitely, and you will get results if you stick with it. If you’re used to a little more excitement, you may want to turn on a radio before you start the DVD. Jari is definitely ‘to the point’ and you won’t see any cutting up. The length of the video was perfect, and my muscles were completely spent afterwards. Always a good sign of a great workout!  I will be doing it again.

Okay, so I know you’re chomping at the bit….
