Thoughts on hard core series

Is there a Hard Core Series rotation?
This is a great series =) Ditto to all the great comments =)
Hi Everyone! By now you have all had a week or two to play around with your Hardcore Series Workouts.

You're welcome.
I'm actually doing the weight loss rotation at the moment, it's fun to go back and revisit old rotations.
Have you thought of signing up for Cathe's on demand for one month only ($20) to run through a bunch of her workouts to see which ones you really want to buy? I bought a lot of the hardcore dvd's but found I could not get my head around the step choreography e.g. Imax 2 and 3. I also bought the hardcore extreme dvd and traded it due to all the choreography. If you are a stepper then you will have no issues. I am step challenged and prefer more functional moves.
I'm so glad I'm not the only one. I just cant get my head around step either! I wish I could het it though. Looks like a good workout.
