Manly workout DVDs?

We're looking for some manly workout DVDs. Are there any you can recommend that are geared toward men? Not WiiFit. Thanks!

Ya, P90x or Insanity look pretty tough.

P90x is plenty of workout, but it's not "geared towards men". So...great workout, maybe not what you're looking for?

Best answer: Depends on what you're looking for, how much you want to spend, and what "manly" means to you, I guess. But I don't think you can be manlier or get a better value than the Starting Strength DVD. Learning to safely and effectively perform the basic barbell exercises is something every (wo)man should do.

Response by poster: Thanks for the ideas. I was just thinking of getting some workout DVDs for my husband, because the ones I have seem to be focused on women. I never really thought of men using a DVD to work out with. We're both pretty out of shape and overweight. But trying to change.

You mentioned the WiiFit, which suggests you have a Wii. Have you looked at the Wii Active NFL Training Camp?

Check out Ross Enamait's DVDs and books. Lots of low tech workout ideas. His YouTube channel gives you an idea of the intensity.
Not really a standalone DVD but a good strength training package is Building the Gymnastic Body.

Best answer: Based on your descriptions of your current fitness level, you probably want Power 90, not P90X. (The "x," as you might guess, stands for "extreme.")

Response by poster: Just ordered the Power90. Thanks! That's exactly what I was looking for. Husband's on board. We're 90 days away from ripped abs and bulging muscles.
