This DVD Contains Three Muscle Conditioning Workouts:

Pure Strength Strong Legs & Abs

This thorough leg & ab workout leaves no lower body muscle untouched. The workout begins with a warm up and follows with a tough standing leg workout. It then continues with classic floor work that is enhanced through the use of resistance. The workout concludes with a challenging abdominal routine and a stretch. Some of featured moves are: alternating plie squats, sit and stand squats, step ups and creative calf and hamstring exercises. The soundtrack is a refreshing instrumental remix of classic 70's & 80's rock music. You'll here favorites such as "Legs," "Addicted To Love," "Show Me the Way," and "Rock 'n' Roll."

Pure Strength Chest, Shoulders & Triceps

This workout begins with a brief warm up followed by unique and classic chest, shoulder and triceps exercises. The chest routine focuses on inclines, declines and negatives to enhance and recruit new muscle fibers. The shoulder routine puts a twist on some classic moves (e.g. Arnold presses instead of standard overhead presses) and also incorporates some compound exercises (seated clean & press) to enhance special shaping techniques. The triceps routine brings back some favorites (dips with barbell) plus introduces some new exercises (cross body kickback) to activate all three heads of the triceps muscle. The music features great 70's rock classic remixes plus upbeat instrumentals.

Pure Strength Back Biceps & Abs

This workout begins with a warm-up followed by a thorough back, biceps and abdominal routine and ends with a relaxing stretch. The emphasis of this video series is on strength and is similar in style to Maximum Intensity Strength. The back routine consists of exercises including the T-bar row, bent over row, one arm row, and shrugs. These exercises target all areas of the back and assist in the development and maintenance of good posture. The bicep routine includes barbell curls, seated dumbbell curls, negative curls and concentration curls. Various hand grips will not only target the biceps but also the forearm muscles as well. The abdominal and spinal erector workout will provide a strong support system for your everyday functions. This will not only enhance your posture but will help prevent unnecessary back pain. Music features 70's classic rock instrumental remixes such as "Brown Sugar," "Superstitious" and "That's the Way."

As with all of our DVDs, you can easily program your DVD player to choose only the sections of each workout that you want to do. You can even mix one section from one workout with another.

A wonderful way to begin split-style training January 13, 2016
Reviewer: Liz from Hagerstown, MD United States  
I originally started training with total-body weightlifting as a beginner, lifting 2-3 times a week. While I did see good results in the first 6 to 12 months doing total-body routines, after that my progress stagnated and the visual changes in my body stopped coming. Pure Strength is a non-intimidating but very results-oriented series which has helped me transition into split-style training. I was afraid splits would be dull and/or overwhelming, but Cathe manages to avoid both of those common problems here. I enjoy that PS utilizes classic exercises proven over many years to build serious strength and muscle. This uses standard equipment, not loads of gadgets. Cathe gives many essential and helpful form pointers throughout the workouts. Those new to Cathe and/or split-style training cannot go wrong by buying this foundational set, especially because it's got three workouts on one DVD, a truly wonderful value.

Solid strengthening. October 5, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from NY United States  
I already have most of Cathe's DVDs but just to complete my set I got Pure Strength. It's fine but if you already have a bunch of her weights workouts this one isn't necessary--it doesn't do anything that her other videos don't also do.  Except . . . the part I did especially love was the ankle weights segment in the legs workout because she rarely does that stuff anymore--it filled a void.  It is for the ankle weights alone that I'll hang onto this set.

looooooooooove this dvd November 6, 2011
Reviewer: cathefan  
I have been using this dvd so much lately. I don't know why I didn't pull it from my collection sooner. It's straight forward moderate to heavy weight training. It's quick and thorough. Love it! Beats so much of the new stuff out there right now.

Pure Strength August 8, 2007
Reviewer: scotland from uk  
Excellent tape.  Cathe encourages to set your own weight.  Most exercises 2/3 sets of 10 set at a steady pace with plenty of recovery time.  Nothing fancy but it has allowed to go heavier gradually.
