I'm glad you don't mind them. :-) What really makes me nuts is that editing is so hard. Thanks to autocorrect and my failure to hit the "b" "g" "t" and "n" keys there's always some problem with my messages, but sheesh, I do know how to conjugate verbs!

Unless somebody else posts one, I'll be doing Burn Sets Chest, Back and Shoulders tomorrow night and will write a review. Should be challenging, since I spin with my (former military trainer) instructor in the morning...she always wipes me out, but I just can't stop Xtraining....it's awesome and Burn Sets is soooooo up my alley: heavy weighs to failure!

Would you please tell us what the impact level is and if you can modify it if it is high impact? Thanks.

It's mixed impact, and I think you could modify much of it....for example, for the jumping jacks, you could do disc jacks. :-)

I will post my review here once I get a "valid" coupon code and start downloading. SNM sent one, but of course with my luck, it did not work .

I like boxing and kickboxing, and I'm super excited to test out HS! Oh heck, I'm super excited to try them all .

In your opinion Pam, do the gloves add significant intensity to the workout? I don't have a pair...yet .

Ugh, sorry to hear you still don't have your workouts yet. :-(

I think you'll still get a great workout workout the gloves. To me the real trick of these types of workouts is really punching with force instead of just throwing the arm out there...the gloves were fun, but not a necessity.

Do you normally use anything when you do Cathe's other boxing or kickboxing workouts? If so, I'd just use that. I have a pair of 1 LB gloves I used to use, but never liked the way they felt...it seemed like the weight moved a fraction of a second "off beat" of my hand. If I didn't have the boxing gloves, though, I'd still use those.

Hope you get a working code soon!

No, I don't like using weighted gloves while boxing/kickboxing. They just don't "feel" right, I can't really explain it. I know once I get those Everlast gloves, my DH will do a and ask me if I'm training to be a boxer or something. Perhaps I could just hold 1lbs sand bags from my ankle weights. I shall see...

It's moments like these that my patience is tested (referring to waiting for my valid code). I believe every now again life throws these "tests" just to keep me on my toes. Luckily for me this time, it's only a matter of workout downloads, and not an emergency (although for a Cathlete is sure does feel that way!). I will have these workouts for a long time, so what's a few more days? I'm scheduled for STS M2 chest, shoulder's and tri's today anyway .

Thanks Pam! Keep those reviews coming!
