So I did Exclusive #1 - I really liked it!

It's intense. It's sort of the same format that Hamelin uses in bootcamp 1 and 2 classes, with timed exercises. He does a couple of moves standing and a couple of moves on the mat (crunches, mountain climbers, bridges, etc.) for a minute each. I reach often for the bootcamp cardio workouts, so I'm familiar with this format.

Exclusive #2 has more toning exercises for the legs, but #1 is all about the core and arms. It's easy to keep it low impact but intense at the same time. All high impact moves can be done on the trampoline - mine is in storage, so I didn't try that.

I did appreciate the minute of grapevines because I was sucking wind at that point

Bee, Usia (hi Dana! ) I do love that zen/zoning out feel that Hamelin's workouts give me. I think it's different for each of us which ones have that quality. For some it's the endorphin rush of the higher intensity, and for others the control and the quietness of DMW or Blitz toning. For the life of me, I cannot meditate or keep my mind still, so I love how I can just focus in the moment and detach myself from everyday life's problems during my workout

I did Exclusive 2 today. It had a ton of plank work (too much for my taste). I enjoyed the lower body portions that utilized the xercuffs the most. To me this workout had the intensity of some of his bootcamp series workouts.

Wow, I just previewed #3 and I'm excited about that one -- it's similar looking, but seems like it's less intense. Still a fair bit of up and down unfortunately, but I think I'll like this one better. Weren't these billed as cardio workouts? Maybe not. There's certainly a lot of toning in them.

I also received #3 but haven't previewed it yet. I haven't done Workouts 1 or 2 yet either. I'm currently doing CLX and I'm enjoying it, so I thought instead of distracting myself with other programs, I may actually try to complete CLX rotation.

I'll preview and download #3 later this evening. I'm looking forward to it.

It does look the best of the three, but I'll be honest - just previewing it filled me with dread. I should have passed on this series and just focused on the blitz stuff which I do like so much.

Same here. I will try them when I have extra time but they just don't look like my thing. I wasn't expecting them to be so hard and long.

I've now previewed and downloaded Exclusive Workouts 3 & 4. They look tough! I am looking forward to starting the rotatation of all my HDM workouts sometime next month. Last month I did a Gilad rotation (fun!), and this month I've been doing CLX and loving it. I will probably continue with CLX tihrough the first half of September and then I'll move on to Hamelin. Ah, so many workouts, so little time!
