I'm wondering what factors go into designing a rotation. Obviously, a rotation will rotate between different groups of muscles. And, again obviously, you want a mix of cardio and weight sessions. But, for example, in the first week of the KickButt rotation, Strong Bear and Fast Cheetah appear twice. In the second week, Crunch Time and Floor Burn appear twice. Why? Also, I am enjoying the new DVDs so much, I am sometimes doing two of them a day. Do the same rotation rules apply or is there some subtle nuance that will make these extra workouts more effective?

Because there has never been a rationale or explanation for the WHFN rotations (and the Firm rotations too for that matter), I have always thought that they were somewhat randomly designed.

I recently received an e-mail from whfn about the Rock that Butt Core-Hip-Thigh DVD with 3 KickButt and 3 FitPrime workouts. I have all the workouts but would like to know if anyone has the rotation for this series. Thanks.

I just purchased the Metaboost/Kickbutt combo. These are the ony two I have although I do have some other Firm videos. Any thoughts on a rotation would be great!

I have: Complete Aerobic & WT; Fat Blaster, Max Cardio, Sculpt + Abs, Total Muscle Shaping, Hips, Abs and Thighs, Cardio Sculpt, Total Sculpt, Complete Body Shaping. I have a question: I did Flex on Saturday (not all of it), Metaboost on Sunday and CA&WT on Monday; my thighs are saying hello in a nice way. Is that the Metaboost? Although I just recently began to do the tall box climbs (I used to use the 8 inch step only), I think it was the crabs and the whole zipper routine. Thoughts?
