I did Strong Bear this morning and loved every minute of it. It is an awesome workout and Kellie did an awesome job. It was nice, as everyone else has said, not having any glitches in the workout

I did this one last night and so far it's the toughest of the bunch. It's also the first of the KB series I've done so I'm hoping they're all as good a workout as this one. I had a tough time doing the bootcamp portion because my wrist is still pretty sore but what I could do got my heartrate up and felt good. It will take a few tries to get the hang of this one but so far it's a big two thumbs up. Keli, of course, is wonderful.

Strong Bear was the toughest one for me. Whew, wadda workout! But I found this version easier to follow than the original for some reason.

Keli is becoming a favorite of mine. I'm crazy about the girl...she is awesome.

So this was the last one I did...I've done all 12 now. They are all fantastic; not a dud in the bunch.

I had DOMS two hours later after doing this workout. I could not believe it. I never had DOMs until the next morning after doing the original strong bear. Kelly did a great job.

I did this one for the first time yesterday morning. I agree Keli did a good job. This is a very well-balanced and well-designed workout. One thing I did was do each exercise on the non-dominant side first. (This isn't a complaint, just an observation. Keli begins w/the right side for the leg press/courtsey dips, and on the right side for floor adduction. I began both on the left, since that's where I began with the rest of the workout.)

My glutes & hams began yelling at me last nite! Yum!

Apryl, I noticed the confusion regarding which side we were working too. I am left-handed, so I have to concentrate extra hard to remember to do the opposite of what I am seeing *and* to ignore any "left side" "right side" cues. When the lead says "start with your left side" and then later says "use your dominant side" I am so confused! Add to that the fact that we might not work the other side until much later in the workout and I inevitably work one side twice. I'm sure that I'll get it down eventually.

I just mirror the instructor no matter what side they're working. Gets it all done that way.....besides my strong side is my left,....so I'd be really messed up if I didn't follow along.

I previewed this one last night and can already tell I will be waiting on this one abit until I get my strength back that I've lost over the last 6 months. I'm just happy that I have many others to choose from.

Just wanted to add that after doing the entire 12-pack at least twice, I think this one is the toughest of the bunch.

Ouch! I did this one Monday and this morning, and my butt is sore! (Especially on the right side, what's up with that?) I don't know if the muscle is sore from today, yesterday's Floor Burn, or the combo of the two. Whatever, I'm happy! It's great to feel like you've had a fantastic workout, isn't it?
