The book gives you a good guidelines as to eating for your body type. It also guides you on exercises that are specific to your body type. The book uses symbols on the exercise demo pages that represent the five body types: apple, pear, stick, round or symmetically fit. This is an easy way of knowing what exercises are best for you. The programs in the book vary and sometimes I used to get confused about reps and frequency of training.

The DVD really applies the exercises in the book together they are great. Showing a boot camp of apx 40 minutes, this DVD makes your realise that you had muscles even where you didnt know you had them. The DVD focuses on what some call circuit/interval training, this means that it gives a mix of cardovasular exercises in between weight bearing exercises. The DVD advises you to use weights, it doesnt tell you how heavy the weights need to be. The DVD is not for the faint hearted, its hard but extremely effective. Ive followed the DVD for 2 weeks – 6 days a week and saw some serious results. The dvd gets you going with some serious moves that are called ‘distinctively david moves’ in normal terms these exercises can be defined as moves that combine two exercise which in turn increase the productivity of the exercise. The DVD focuses on all parts of the body, however the lunges and push ups are serious and after the first couple of sessions your arms and thighs feel sore. The DVD doesnt tell you how often you should be doing the DVD, and some of the edits are a bit strange but by far this is the best work out DVD Ive ever seen.
My favourite moves would be Distinctively David’s Sumo Lunges – they are so effective but still fun. I also like his sit up series, there is no wasted movement with these, you feel the burn!
