I haven't had the chance to do all of the workouts yet, but they don't feel repetitive to me. But I don't mind drill type workouts, so someone else might feel differently.

I didn't find it repetitive, but I did find it too fast in some places (but not easy to go at your own pace), and I did not feel like my legs were worked enough. I also wonder if the chest and back are really worked enough with just those exercises. I ended up selling it. I did think the tutorial was great, and I also liked Skogg as an instructor.

I am much happier with RKS, but I do think Skogg's system is good, and I will definitely be watching for his next set.

if i were doing this as a system for 6 weeks (or ever how long it is supposed to be) then i'd find it repetitive.... especially since going from level 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 is the same exact workout....

however i'm using them like all my other workouts (except RKS which i've done as a sorta system) and doing which one i want when i want in with all my other ones (did ladders mon and flow today... level 3 although in hindsight i wish i'd have done level 4!)

i LOVE lauren and RKS... i haven't picked up lurie in a while but do like her workouts.... and i like skogg (just not as a system!)

so that said... i think you might light them!

it's funny but i kinda liken them to the snatch-fest/swing-fest... cuz although it's 6 moves versus 1 move... you still repeat them over and over for 15-40 minutes depending on which level you choose!
