Product Description

Denise Austin: Hit the Spot--Abs gets right to the point with three sessions that target and tone the abdomen. Each 10-minute segment concentrates on the rectus abdominus (a major muscle of the abdominal wall) and the oblique muscles (that run along the side of the midsection). Whichever program you choose will deliver an equal challenge with only a minimal variation on choreography. Spine alignment is imperative here and Austin reminds participants about the importance of keeping the low back close to the floor. Reverse curls, crunches, and torso twists are taught with special attention to contracting the muscles that are used for each movement. Some modifications are offered for beginners or those who have back or neck weakness. While this program provides a great abdominal workout, the opposing muscles of the low back are not worked here. The low back helps aid in torso stabilization and the addition of these isolations would enhance the overall benefits of this great workout even more. Mats or towels are needed, and a small pillow may come in handy during certain exercises. These tried and true exercises are presented with that famous Denise Austin spunkiness that may leave you thinking that smiling and sit-ups can co-exist. --Olivia Voigts

Customer Reviews:

  • LOVE IT!!
    I love this video. Denise is very encouraging. She calmly reminds me that she herself has two kids and bounced back. I used this video after my 2nd child and shrank back down within 3 months. Now, 6yrs later and 3 months postpartum with my third baby, I'm looking at the same screen and hoping that 'magic' will work again. My tape is getting old old and I hope that I don't wear it out before I get back to my desired size. Thanks Denise!...more info
  • Get Great Results --FAST!
    This was my first purchase in Denise's Hit the Spot Series. I have since purchased the other target toning videos in the series(Thighs, Buns, Arms & Chest). You really do get a GREAT toning workout in each of the 10 minutes segments. Although Denise can be a bit much to take at first, I now find her to be very motivating and "like a personal trainer right in your home." She blends innovative moves with classic ones to make for a challenging and rewarding workout that gets results!!! The beachfront/resort backdrop for the videos is also quite relaxing and beautiful, and makes doing the excercises that much more enjoyable. I would HIGHLY recommend this video, along with all of the other videos in the Hit the Spot series!!!!...more info
  • Tried and true exercises
    I have had this video for over 10 years and I still do it on a regular basis--a testament to the quality of this video. I prefer this one over her Rock Hard Abs video, although it's a little newer. This video contains good classic exercises that are not outdated. I highly recommend it....more info
  • great for after baby
    i just had my second baby and believe me, this video will do the job!!! i used it for a couple months after i had my first child, then for some reason i stopped and started using another ab tape and that was a mistake. my 2nd son is almost 3 months old and my abs are looking better every week. i do the whole 30 minutes about 4 times a week and love it. i just laugh at Denise and her funny ways, she doesn't annoy me i just think she's funny, if you can handle her then this is the tape for you. thank you Denise!!!...more info
  • Pretty good
    Some people shy from Denise's videos because they hate her perkiness. But where she loses points in uppeti-ness, she compensates for in a pretty good workout.

    I think she's a pretty motivating teacher, and does a good job of instructing in this video. But her exercises aren't as good as those in Tamilee Webb's Abs of Steel.

    I switched over to Abs of Steel, and find myself more challenged and building a much firmer midsection with that program.

    But Hit the Spot Abs is good for a beginner....more info

  • Just so-so
    This video is all right, but if you have been working your abs regularly for some time now, you probably will not feel ANYTHING after doing one 10-minute work out. You might be sore after 2 10-minute workouts. However, if you do abs properly and challenge yourself, 10 minutes should be enough, so I was disappointed....more info
  • EASY AB WORKOUT THAT WORKS
    I adore this video. I'm 22 and 4 years ago I found this tape in the back of a closet, it was my sisters old tape she never used. The segments are simple 10 minute workouts that will have you sweating fromt eh work they put in. I love this workout so much I still do the segments twice a week. And after using it just 2 or 3 weeks you'll see your wasitline get this gorgeous shape and the lower abs start tightening up. ...more info
  • This really works!
    I love this video. It is the second one I bought after my puppy chewed up the first one. Three different and short workouts keeps it interesting and Denise is very motivational. It is hard to do at first, but results come quick and toned ab muscles make you feel good all around...more info
  • Hit the Spot and hit it FAST!
    Denise Austin's - Hit the Spot Abs - is by far the best abs tape out there. In JUST 10 minutes, you can get a great workout! The best thing about it is the three levels of ability: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. I'm usually comfortable switching daily for level 2 and 3. You can FEEL her working your LOWER abs, which is what all of us want to target!

    Some people make the mistake and think that they have to do all 3 workouts at once. Unless you're super-advanced, that's not necessary. Just one 10 minute session is enough! Other people complain about Denise's perkiness. I find it encouraging and it really does help!! As she says "Hit the spot and hit it good, because you are worth it!"...more info

  • really works
    This tape really works. The exercises are geared to firming your abs, and they really do the job. Denise starts the first segment by giving tips on proper technique. Stick with the first segment till you feel like you can do more advanced moves, they do get harder in the second and third segment. If you stick to this tape, you will see results. I have been doing it for only 2 weeks and see a great improvement....more info
  • Great tape
    I just received this tape today. The exercises are great because it really works. I can feel my abs being tight after 30 min of workout. The things I didn't like about this tape was the music...not that great...can't hear much of it...Also, Denise talks to much......more info
