Posted: June 5, 2012 in DVD Reviews

The last of the Jillian Michaels’ “The Biggest Winner!” workout DVD pack. Finally!

The Biggest Winner – Full Frontal (2005)

Part of “The Biggest Winner!” box set, this is a pretty solid DVD.

Where I Got This DVD: Bought it on Amazon
Length
: Approx. 30 min.
Instructor
: Jillian Michaels
Team:
Brenda (modifier), Jonathan, Nick, and Misty

Warm-Up:

  • Four exercises, 30 reps each—great warm-up exercises

Circuit #1:

  • 2 rounds total, 10 reps per strength move, up to 30 reps of the jumps and plyos
  • Moves include: chest press, one-leg squats, side plyos on the step, close-grip pushups, hold and side leg raise, plié squats, forward plyos on the step, W presses, jumping jacks with side raises, reverse crunches
  • Good stuff—really gets your heart rate up
  • Fast counting and quick transitions between moves

Circuit #2:

  • 2 rounds total, 10 reps per strength move, up to 30 reps per jumps and cardio intervals
  • Moves include: V-press, chair squat with forward raise, tricep extension with crunch, oblique crunch with weights, side steps with leg raises, jump squats with shoulder presses, jump rope
  • Not as long or intense as circuit one, but definitely a good second half
  • Still fast counting

Overall:
Instructor
: Jillian isn’t as annoying in this DVD. She’s a good instructor because she tells you how and why to do each move.
Moves
: A great mix of standard moves (chest presses) with slight variations of moves (one-leg squats), and moves I had never done before (W-presses).
Intensity Level:
Beginner to Advanced (depending on weight selection)
Buy It?:
I would recommend this one, yeah, especially if you A) don’t have a lot of time, B) need a quick strength training DVD, and C) need a little motivation (because let’s be honest, Jillian does motivate people).
