HDM Melt?

Has anyone here done any of his Melt system? I can't figure out exactly what it's like. Is it like his old stuff? Blitzmatics? Is there any impact?

thanks!

IMHO, itís just high rep HDM toning. With a wee bit of cardio thrown in here and there. Apparently the next round is supposed to have more cardio, but the first round wasnít unique or different from his regular high rep stuff. I was hoping it was going to be more like blitz, which is lower reps, relatively speaking, but itís not. There is a little impact, but he offers modifications. Itís mostly just toning. That said, I did sign up for the second round because the workouts are cheap and Iím a hoarder, and Iím always doing some HDM.

I didn't do the workouts as the plan laid out. Same workout 5 days a week for an hour.. plus you were to add on cardio too. No way I have the time nor want to workout two hours a day!! I'm 45.. holy waiting for can injury or cortisol spike!!! I did each workout once.. that was enough. Kinda boring. I also don't love downloads.

I also want to add.. with such light weights and doing the same moves daily.. you are not building muscle.. I was not impressed with the result photos. I do not judge women's bodies.. but I want to build muscle, I did not see any increase in muscle tone in the photos.. and know this type of training does not build muscle (for me). When I do Slim Series .. I get great results.. but I do a workout every other day.. not daily. Debbie uses heavier weights and more cardio effect. I still thin SS is the best series for leaning out and staying cut.. if you do them on non consecutive days. Mix that with old school Tae Bo, and wow!!
