    they're starting it up at my gym soon. Sounds like a decent work out.
    Les Mills programs are "classes," so it should be treated as such. Replace for cardio every now and again when you don't feel like running 5k. Other than that I wouldn't think much of their workouts.

    ... really? Have you ever done an RPM class? Combat? Attack? Any of it? I honestly don't comprehend your answer based on the work outs I experience with these classes.

    What is it about these type of classes that you don't think much about?

    I've done Attack a few times and have co-instructed Combat once.

    It depends on your fitness level and background. I'm a trained boxer, so 45 minutes of body combat--which is what it usually runs give or take 5-10 minutes--doesn't measure up to a 90min boxing session where you cycle through exercises. Like I said, it's great cardio and works as a replacement for other things like distance running or cycling if you need the variety, but it shouldn't be the foundation for anything. It is a "class" like spinning, dancing or anything else that is designed to be specific to body groups or skill, but it's not going to be the end all, or at least it shouldn't.

    Don't you just hate it when you've typed up a whole response and your tab crashes? .. Anyway.

    Ever since kick boxing stopped being an option for me due to hand injuries, I switched to combat. Granted: it's not the same, you shouldn't expect it to be. What I don't understand is how you can say les mills classes don't contribute to a good foundation of fitness: the right combination of classes builds your stamina, tones and contributes to muscle building. Sure: if your aim is to become an ultra ripped body builder, you shouldn't rely on this as your foundation but when it comes to getting fit and in shape I really can't see how you can dismiss les mills classes (or classes in general) so easily.

    It's a different type of work out than the individual circuit in the gym combined with running your 5km but it sure does work to kick your butt in shape if you pick the right classes and put in maximum effort.

    Was the injury to your hand serious? Have you tried using a lower weight bag as a part of recovery? I've sprained both my wrists and broken my thumb, but dropping to a lower weight bag helped in my recovery. You should ask your physician about if you're serious about repair.

    Perhaps I am being a bit snobbish, but from what I've seen of Les Mills--which has been just about all of their programs--I do not see a well rounded program for what I would consider to be a well rounded regimen for a career athlete or a career athlete. I've been studying and living in fitness for a long time now and from what I know for differing body types and "strengths," no instruction-set provider makes all the courses a person would need. There's no heavy lifts, which a person regardless of weight should train in, their one lifting program is run like an aerobics class, with movement so fast and weights so low that you might as well pantomime the moves, and time based work rather than load based work, the latter of which is what promotes growth, visibly and functionally.

    Let's put it this way: both of my wrists have previously been fractured on the joint and the last 3 times I trained on a bag, gloves or not, I fractured my scaphoid. Tried to correct it with technique the first time and it probably still is technique but I got sort of weary of the splints and casts.

    Absolutely a fair point to make that les mills on its own doesn't get you on the career athlete level. It's not designed for that purpose, but then I do see several of the extremely serious PT's at our gym often take a class in addition to what they do. As far as I'm concerned: Les Mills offers an awesome workout especially if you are focusing on overall fitness, stamina and toning instead of muscle building. My personal training goals are primarly focused on endurance (RPM), core strength (CX Works) and toning (Combat) and the results speak for themselves.

    And now I'm still interested to see if anyone has enjoyed Grit. ;)
