What You Should Know
The Abs & Chest of Steel was first released in 1994 as a VHS tape. It was part of a series of video cassette tapes focusing on weight training and bodybuilding. We could not find a DVD version of the workout video; so many dieters may find it difficult to find a compatible video cassette player to watch the Abs & Chest of Steel video. Customer reviews and testimonials are available for the program, but most are dated from more than 10 years ago. The video focuses on a home workout that does not require expensive equipment.

Home workout for abs and chest.
The Abs & Chest of Steel program was one in a long line of video cassette workout programs that aimed to bring hard core fitness to the living room. The programs are known for being intense but they do not require expensive equipment to complete each workout program. Reviews of the Abs & Chest of Steel claim the workouts are aimed at people who are already in shape. This concept leaves out the average dieter who is just starting an exercise program.
The Abs & Chest of Steel VHS tape runs 40 minutes. With the introduction and explanation of exercises, we assume the total workout will last about 30 minutes. During that time, the instructor alternates between chest exercises and abdominal exercises. Dumbbells are used during the workout, so the follower would have to purchase one or more sets of dumbbells to complete the Abs & Chest of Steel VHS.
Complaints about the program are mostly centered on the level of difficulty. Viewers also complain that the instructor does not count out the repetitions for push-ups, which makes it difficult to follow the program because the television cannot be viewed from a push-up position.
The Abs & Chest of Steel VHS tape sells for $9 plus shipping and handling.
