When you download the video and it comes up in PDF format you can print from that with all exercises on one page. The video wouldn't download for me either

When I went to watch the video for this workout, I was given the option to download the workout in pdf format. All 5 positions are demonstrated on one page. BTW, the video connection failed. :(
