It's been a while, a long while, but I'll tell you what I remember.
I really enjoyed YAYOG. I have all his DVDs, even though some of the newer ones I haven't used at all or rarely.
His original YAYOG was doable for me. It was pretty short though and I like something longer. If I use them again, which I may, I would add on an episode of CS.
I really like his calm demeanor and his voice. His form is perfect. His YAYOG app was super inexpensive and great for travel.
At the time I was using his DVDs a lot I really liked them.

Thanks for the info! I'm thinking of trying his workouts.

Have you ever done Ruthless? It's also all bodyweight.

Sorry Carol, I just saw this. I own Ruthless but have not used them yet except once I think and it wasn't right for me at the time. I still have it though and may someday use it. I think it has a lot of up and down and burpee type movements. I am careful to not tweak my back so go slower than those young'uns.

I'll tell you what also seems like a good bodyweight workout program Jillian Michael's Body Revolution. It also uses some weights if I remember correctly. I liked it so much I bought the next phase called Body Shred. I moved on though and never even tried the Body Shred. I still have them both though.

I posted about my rotation in another thread:
I started Mark Lauren's 90 day Challenge this week and it should end the first week of August in time for my vacation. Its bodyweights, 3-4 times a week, 30-40 min including warm up and cool down. I am liking it so far since its not hurried, doable, intense and stretchy at the same time

Aliskina, do you happen to know how similar this is too his other DVDs? I tried reading reviews on Amazon but many of them are actually for the DVDs I already own.
Thanks

I'm interested in hearing about your rotation

Wow! Thank you so much for writing all that info. The moves do look familiar to me; I have, I think, every other DVD and his book that he's put out. Good luck with your rotation.
