Trivia

The now-renowned directors Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avary got their first Hollywood jobs in 1986 as production assistants on this workout video. The director John Langley knew them from the video store where Tarantino was working. Not until Quentin Tarantino had arrived on location, however, did the future director receive his assignment: cleaning dog feces from the front lawn of the house in which the video was being shot.

A fantastic work out for various fitness levels.
9 April 2008 | by (Portsmouth, England) – See all my reviews

Before Dolph played Frank Castle in 1989, he was a real Punisher on this video. He really puts your whole body through the wringer on this video, it will tire you but he also takes precautions to keep anyone watching it safe from harm. The warm up and cool down routines prevent soreness and are all aided by a commentary explaining the benefits of these routines and a bit of dietary advice. Although fairly brief, the cardiovascular segment is effective at getting the heart pumping and you have control over how hard you push yourself, depending on your fitness. The main segment, 'Body Sculpting' is brilliant as you can do it in a very small space and it requires no weights or props, just simply using your body weight as resistance. Kudos must go to the start of the tape as Dolph shares some of his philosophies before the work out but the 80s cheese takes over your attention, putting you in humorous spirits before you exercise.

Using this video and making slight alterations to my diet (do not despair, I still love chocolate!), I lost 4 stone (56lbs) whilst still retaining a fairly muscular physique. Thankyou Dolph, your video is awesome and I advise anyone looking for a good work out video to search this out. It cost me £10 on ebay but it's the best tenner I've ever spent.
