The are called P90X by beachbody. They are the best workout dvds I've ever done (& I've done a bunch of workout dvds.)
I've been lifting weights for 12 years. I never could have imagined there would be a dvd that can give me as good of a leg workout at home as I was getting at the gym with machines. It's actually better than what I was doing at the gym. I noticed more definition after I switched to the dvds.
My gym closed down sept 2006. Shortly after a friend told us about these DVDs. I've been doing them since then. Its so great to be able to work out at home. I put the dvds on my portable dvd player so I can watch tv while I workout.
There is a countdown clock so you know how much is left. There is a great 15minute ab workout too.
We don't have a pull up bar, so we skip that part. But, with just some dumb bells, a dvd player & a chair, you can get an awesome workout.
I didn't follow the eating plan, I just do the dvds. Also, the workout plan is really intense. I just do a dvd a few times a week. Our friends strained their back from over doing it (both husband & wife) so if you feel like it's too much, cut back. I like to mix it up with some of my other dvds like taebo & pilates. P90X is not for beginners. There are other programs from the same people that are not as intense. One is called Power 90. I also tried Debbie Siebers Slim in 6 but I didn't like it.
The entire plan is 10-15 DVDs of different weight lifint routines, cardio, and yoga. it's a great way to get guys to do yoga because it's like manly yoga. There is also a book that takes you through a diet plan. It's a good diet. I'm totally against fad diets. This isn't like that. I didn't have the book to follow the diet because I bought used DVDs on ebay.

You can modify it to suite you if you are a beginner. I should have explained this better. Don't do the program the way it is designed if you don't lift already. But, you can do a dvd a few times a week with lighter weights even if you are a not a lifter. I just wouldn't do it 6 days a week at first like the plan has you doing. I only work out 3-4 times a week most weeks. I really don't care to do more.
So you can modify this to be easier.
Also the really killer part is all the pushups. I don't do that dvd. thats the one that hurt my friends' backs. It's not a bad dvd. I just hate pushups.
I don't work out as hardcore as the program. But, I still get a lot of use out of these DVDs.
