I got my replacement pressed DVDs today, too!

I've been using these still with the new Tonique workouts, and am still having a love fest with these! As you can see from the clips, they are tough, but they're also a lot of fun! I feel worked from head to toe from each one, and am still getting good results.

I hope you all like them!

I like some of the clips but not all of them. They still seem too fast for me.
All the instructors sound like Darby. I am afraid these might develop a dread factor over time. In each clip there were things I liked and things I didn't but like others have said there is plenty to grow into with these--at least for me. I can see why they are using such light weights! I have to think about these.

I noticed that as well. They all seem like something is extremely urgent and we'd better hurry up and get the workout done!! Based on the clips, only a couple of them interest me, so unless someone wants to split a set, my credit card is safe

ETA: All 5 clips are up. Upon viewing them again, the only one that I could even somewhat see myself doing is the Fusion Mix. I'm glad I'm resistant to something!! Keep the barre/fusion workouts coming, my bank account needs a break

That's what I thought when I watched these! Good thing too, since this year I've already ordered the three Ellens and the two new Jessica Smiths.

Leanna or Sue (or anyone else) - what weights are you using for these? The lightest dumbbells I have are 3 lbs, do I need to go get some 1 lbs or 2 lbs for these?

Yes! I started out with 2 lb & recently got a 1 lb set. Definitely some moves you can use a 2 lb. tonight for instance I did barre. There are a couple moves where you do lunges, using a resistance band, the whole time your other arm is sticking straight out - no way I could last doing that even with a 2 lber... Definitely went down to the 1's on that move....

Weird question for those that have the set...do these make you more hungry? Hard workouts are known to make people hungry. I know it's a weird question but this is a consideration for me. Thanks!
