Any opinions on the Spinerval videos? Which one(s) do you have?

I've got the Mental Toughness, uphill grind and time trial videos. So far I've only done the mental toughness video and it provides a really good workout. The warm-up is a bit short though (@5 minutes) so I usually start the video about 5-6 minutes after I start my warm-up. The cool-down is a bit on the short side as well. The last hard part of the workout works your sprint and then only 5 minutes or so are given for a cool-down. Extend it another 5-10 minutes and you'll have a really well done workout.

Like I said earlier, I haven't tried the other two videos yet, as I'm still in the base-building phase of my training program, so I don't want to push things that hard yet. If the one video is any indication, the other two will be good too.

They're good. They're hard. What jschrotz mentions above about the warm up/cool down is true, but I hadn't even thought of it until he (she?) mentioned it. Very high intensity work out so don't try to do them everyday.

and as for an indoor workout I haven't found anything more demanding, if you give it all for the workout it'll bring you real close to getting sick.

It's high intensity intervals with a couple minutes of tempo here and there. The workout with warmup is about 50 or so minutes.
thanks for the help everyone (nm)burnan
