There are 2 parts in this DVD: footwork and strength training.
For footwork, I'd give 4/5 stars. On some of the drills, their speed coach shows the proper form while the other drills the students just go and do it ie the ladder drills.
For strength training, I'd rate 2/5 stars. I'm rather disappointed. They didn't have their certified trainer explain proper form nor why certain exercises are done. This portion is literally just students working out. They even showed footage of a student bench pressing, but was arcing his lower back up to give him more power. Anyone that knows proper bench press form knows that THIS WILL INJURE YOU!! How can I trust the other form being shown? Even worse, kids out there will think arcing your lower back is ok. Of course, it's good to know what workouts they do, but now I have to research proper form and find a trainer who can make sure I'm doing it right.
I didn't feel the makers of this DVD put a lot of time to make it as "instructional" as it could be. They basically just had a camera guy record a day in the life of. Other instructional DVDs will have someone constantly explain proper form/why they do certain drills etc.
