I found the workouts to be high intermediates but I did use heavier weights than Jillian. I was able to use heavier weights in the entire set that Jillian shows, making the workouts more challenging.  Some exercises are advanced and she doesnt waste any time but as a whole my ranking is high intermediates.  Jillian doesnt offer as many modifications in this phase. The strength workouts will def get your heartrate up more than the other phasss. These are athletic style workouts and Jillian adds more multi-muscle exercises and includes balance work to the exercises. I received these dvds to review.
