    Anyone tried Strike Zone yet?

    Hi All, I did this workout for the first time this morning. Overall I liked it. I like Josef alot and his form pointers. It did not seem as intense as compared to Cathe's or powerstrike's videos. In fairness, I did not go full out with this workout since I was learning the moves and am...

    Thanks Zeke for your info. I will look into those shots a little more thoroughly. Do you do only low impact cardio? I have not done any step or high impact for 3 weeks trying to rest my knee. I've ridden the bike and kickboxing with no jumping. I'm thinking of doing a low impact step. I go...

    Plyo Floors?

    Hi Trish, My pavi flooring is over hardwood floors in my spare bedroom. I have them over a piece of what you put under carpet (my mind has gone totally blank) that extra layer which I had had my puzzle mats on top of before. I hope I am making sense. I probably don't need that extra cushion...
