Bob Harper: Totally Ripped Core, $15, mytrainerbob.com

What you'll need: a pair of 3- to 5-pound dumbbells

Calories burned: 380 during a 48-minute routine, 65 during an 11-minute bonus*

The skinny: Testers loved the "fun mix of fast-paced core exercises," like weighted side crunches, and muffin-top-melting plyometric bursts from The Biggest Loser's master motivator.

Finish with the stretchy bonus session, which includes trunk rotations and windmills.
