Thank you, I loved reading your take. Iíve been on the hunt for it today but so far no luck, Some of those older Firms are really tough to find!

I didn't plan to get any of these when they first came out and then ended up getting all three. I think I got the very last Power Cardio from the first release, because they released so few of them. I like Cardio Burn the best, but seem to do Power Cardio more often.

I did Power Cardio today and forgot how many plyo jumps are in it! But all the workouts in this set do. I really like that this workout has table work and bridge work in it, which the others are missing. I did have to pause it because some of the equipment changes were way too fast- I can't get my ankle weights on that quickly! I like Dale as an instructor and think the workout flows well. I feel this is the easiest of the three workouts in the set. For me the hardest is Maximum Cardio, followed by Cardio Burn, then Power Cardio. All are great workouts, though, and are great cardio workouts!

If I ever see Cardio Burn while thrifting I'll pick it up for you. I don't see as many firms these days when at the thrift store, but I did see Bootcamp 3 in 1 mix the last time I was there.

Yay! So glad you did it and reported back. Yes, the plyos are crazy. I try to do them all because I keep reading that jumping is good for your bones but I modify a lot of the other high impact stuff. Maximum Cardio totally wipes me out! Iím planning to do that tomorrow, so say a prayer! 😂

Hi Carol, Thatís so interesting. And now I want Cardio Burn even more. What are your thoughts on Maximum Cardio?

I have not done this workout in years, but it was one of my favorites. Love Dale! I wish she had led more. I liked Cardio Burn as well. I wonder what happened to Dale and what she did post Firm.

I think she works at the U of South Carolina. I have a mutual FB friend with her.

For me, Power Cardio is the toughest, then Cardio Burn, then Maximum Cardio. I like CB the best of the three (and itís one of my favorite FIRMs) because it packs a lot into 45 minutes.

I do love Dale as an instructor. She has that calm, confident vibe that I love, and she has such a great physique. Those abs are enviable!
