Noooooo!!! The Body Sculpting DVDs are no longer available? The 2nd one with Gail, Amanda, and Meg is one of my favorites. I was going to double up on them too. I have been wearing it out.

She modified it from the knees, I thought I was maybe wrong, but bzar confirmed they are in the Ab flattening workout, I also checked on the VF Reviews and it is mentioned in the same workout. I never saw push ups with CS, so I was a bit excited about it, I bought mine so late, now they are gone! I am loving these workouts so far. There is only one workout from Vol. 2 that I have not tried yet.

I got mine from amazon.ca to not pay shipping. Maybe you could check there.

I think the triceps dips are in the Essentrics Barre video.

You are right Jana, I have done that one recently. The first episode of CS Season 8 has some triceps dips as well. I was mostly curious about the tricep push ups, I was pretty sure I saw them on preview when the DVD first came out, but now that I finally bough the DVD so many years later, I didn't see them at all, so I wondered if I just dreamed about them. It seems it wasn't the case. I wonder why they decided to remove them though.

I just checked, I got the Body Sculpting Bundle for $23 CAD (Vol. 1 & 2), during their last sale, they are now $47.95, which is about $10 more expensive than their website.

I have looked through my dvds and am not finding push ups. It would be pretty unusual for push ups to be included in Essentrics.

Thanks gir taking a look! Did you check the Ab Flattening wo?

I found this review;

Quote:
This DVD contains three 30 min workouts. Sahra leads these routines alone on a gorgeous beach. You wont need any equipment for these workouts. Each workout has an emphasis but includes total body strengthening & lengthening work.

Ultimate Leg Sculptor: After a warm-up exercises include side lunge reach & pull, pliet to lunge, donkey kick variations, side lying inner thigh work, a unique side lying hip & outer thigh work, quad shifts & raises, and a stretch.

Ab Flattening & Waist Shaping: After a warm-up exercises include flowing push & pull movements adding lunges, shoulder series with your arms extended, standing leg raises & circles, flowing side lunges, side bends & reaches, chest openers, hip openers, tricep push-ups, and a stretch.

Arm Blast & Posture Boost: After a warm-up exercises include rig cage & hip shifts, "beach ball" passes, tai chi flow, side lunge reach & pull, pliet elbow to knee with an overhead reach, crunches, oblique crunches, bicycle, side lying leg series, lying low back series, and a stretch.

I rate these beginner routines that are appropriate for all fitness levels. The gentle flowing routines work to strengthen & lengthen your muscles and include stretches. Sahra has a great demeanor & provides excellent instruction. These are very unique routines that will definitely shake up your normal regimen. I received this dvd to review.

I think the reviewer confuses the spine lengthening exercises (aka upward dog) with tricep push ups.
