Helen,

Your post and picture made me laugh! Hope you got your DVDs today!

Monday afternoon: Just phoned to check when it might arrive - and was able to speak to a REAL PERSON! It arrived at the processing centre before 1am this morning, which is under 2 hrs drive from here, but they're still saying 1-6 business days before I get it; but I'm optimistic about tomorrow as she (Jenny, on the call) said it HAS been loaded into a truck for delivery. :D

I would love for Cathe (or somebody) to do a workout that, for example, starts with 20 lb dumbbells and we do back,, biceps, squats, lunges, then we take 15 lb dumbbells and do several body parts with that, etc. I guess this would not completely exhaust each muscle group all at once but I think it would be fun. And I renew my wish for Cathe to do a Firm-style AWT dvd with just 5 s or maybe 5s and 10s.

I haven't even tried my dvd yet for just this reason. Every time I look at the back cover of the dvd and see alll the equipment required I get exhausted and pick some other workout to do. I do have this problem with most of Cathe's dvds though. I guess Cathe and I just done mesh well.

Upper Body - Take Two!

Well, I like it now :eek: Since I wasn't using the same massive weights they were using, I did actually lift to the best of the music. And I modified to suit myself. For example, I did the 3-combo of 5# shoulders standing up instead of down on incline bench, sit up, down, up ....

I was still a little concerned about the straining and no-so-good form some were using on those first bicep curls with the huge weights. Since I wasn't using massive weights, my form was perfect. :D

Although I hate it, I'm used to them spending time back and forth moving weights around for every exercise. I just do extra stretching.

However, I did 20 minutes of her High Impact and couldn't make it to the end because I could not stand the idea of doing one more burpee/squat thrust. There was just.so.many. It was like 3/4 of the the workout, supplemented by air jack after air jack after tuck jump. I wish she had thrown in some boxing moves and other cardio moves. Even mountain climbers (maybe they were there in the last 10 minutes, I dunno).

Now that I KNOW this is the case, I might someday do the workout again, mentally prepared. Maybe. I agree that it packs a good strong HIIT workout in 30 minutes; I just prefer, say, a TurboJam style HIIT for 30 minutes if I'm going to get constant variations on the same move.

I also lasted about 20 minutes with this one - too many burpees and so many moves were so fast! When I ffd through the rest of the workout and saw more burpees and then MORE burpees I was glad I had Joni Od it. I have higher hopes for the low impact workout.

Maybe if you use the premixes that do half and half of the high and low impact, youll like it more?

I use a high step for the squat thrust and burpees. It makes a big difference.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who is sick of HiiT. I also have a bee in my bonnett w/ the cheap cases.

I'm still not sure whether I'll get around to the high impact workout, but I will say - I don't even try to keep up rep-for-rep on moves like that. :p I just do what I can.
