I did the full Hard Strikes workout last night and Bi's and Tri's this morning, no issues. The upper body conditioning in Hard Strikes is low weight/high rep and mostly shoulder, followed by bicep curls (with 5lbs), triceps dips, then core.

I did the first chapter loved it! I'm also a KPC, Kick Max, and MMA: Boxing fan.

As Trixxo stated, the first HS chapter is consistent cardio and super fun, high energy for sure! There are a few moves that weren't exactly low impact but they were easily modifiable if you wanted to go low that day.

I used 1lb wrist weights since I don't have gloves, but I think that the gloves would add better resistance because they add more gravity to the leaver length.

For me, it was not a day for a weight workout so I didn't do the other chapters... however, the guide (and menu) lists the exercises in the other chapters and I think they will be a great addition to the workout.
I'm looking forward to doing the entire workout!

Happy New Year!

ITA about the gloves adding intensity to the w/o! I just can't help it...I will be purchasing them soon .
