I have done Dumbbell Dynamite and Belly Fat Broiler and really liked them a lot. I know I will like all the dumbbell segments. I started with Fat Frying Flow and it turned out to be a good way to warm up because it's downwards dogs into push-ups that get progressively harder and variations on sit-throughs.

Doing those 3 segments in a row felt a lot like one of the Delta Fit workouts (I had taken a week long break due to illness and was about to go into phase 3 at the time), so it might not have been as hard as it felt. But with the dumbbell segments at least, all you have to do is pick up a heavier dumbbell to make it harder.

I plan to do the rest of them this week, so I will pop back in with a general impression of intensity or anything else of interest.

Can someone post a link for these? I am not able to find them. Also, I will echo what a previous poster asked.... Does anyone have a coupon code? It seems there is always one for rodale. Thanks!!

Today I did Gorilla Gut Buster, Upper Body Blast, Lower Body Crush and Six Pack Super Storm. I feel like I got a great full body workout in under 45 minutes.

Gorilla Gut Buster is a series of animal movements and I found it an enjoyable way to warm up. Oh my gosh, those frog jumps at the end are tough.

Upper Body Blast works everything but the chest. So many of the other segments have push-ups in them, that I did not miss the chest work in this. My heart rate rose with the weighted squats at the beginner, then dropped during the upper body work. That was okay with me because back and arms were worked pretty hard. He uses one set of dumbbells for everything, but I did not want to attempt overhead triceps extensions with the same weight I use for bent over rows! So I think having a couple of different sizes of dumbbells handy is the way to go.

Lower Body Crush is all body weight endurance and I have pretty good endurance, so I wasn't sure this would be enough. But the last few exercises are isometric squat and lunge ladders and I was almost whimpering at the end. Again, not super intense though.

Six Pack Super Storm is alternating cardio and core moves. I got up a good sweat, but I wouldn't call it killer. There are ways to increase the intensity that I might do next time if I have the energy. I was glad to get in some core work and call it a day.

I still have 5 more segments to try, but so far I am really struck by the variety this set offers. Once I get more familiar with them all, it will be nice to be able to use these as add ons the way people have suggested.

They look really effective. I suspect his knees are dirty in the 10 minute freebie. However, they look deeply bruised. OUCHIEEEE!
