Carmen starts off with a cute introduction, as she always does, then moves into the warm-up portion, which comprises about 50% of the DVD. She has you do multiple stretches, working all areas of the body. When you are done, you will be ready to jump into the aerobic dance portion of the DVD.
One thing that really impressed me during this portion were the exercises and stretches. I was in physical therapy last year following a car accident and resulting back injury, and many of these same stretches Carmen has you do were ones I did on a regular basis at that time. Not only that, but she incorporates some Pilates and yoga moves into the mix, so its a really well-rounded group of warm-up exercises.
After you're all stretched out and warmed up, Carmen will move on to the strip aerobic portion. Here, she'll go through several moves first verbally and showing them, then with "counts", then again to music. Once you've mastered that set, she moves on to the next group of moves, doing the same cycle, then finally going over it all from the top. This continues until she's strung together a really sexy workout that serves more as entertainment for those watching it than it does as exercise for those doing it. But don't get me wrong - you'll be getting a good workout while doing the moves. Carmen Electra is the most limber person I've ever seen.
Since this particular video is called Carmen Electra's Aerobic Striptease: In The Bedroom, she performs the moves on or around the bed. I guess the level of effectiveness of some of the exercises really depends on the firmness of your bed, so keep that in mind.
Basically, this DVD is two things - a workout video and a video teaching you some sexy dance moves for the bedroom. All of Carmen's aerobic striptease exercise videos up to this point have been touted as sexy entertainment/exercise, but to me, they were more for the audience than the one doing the exercise. In The Bedroom is the first one where I actually felt like I was working out and working out hard, with the added bonus of a dance lesson at the end. If that's what you've been looking for, this one is it!
