I think the point of this workout is to LIFT HEAVY! If it isn't hard enough, you aren't lifting enough. I'm spent after each workout and shaking at the end of each set. It is a bodybuilder's workout, not a weight loss one. Since we're female, we won't bulk up.
And I hate the step-ups! I dread doing them but I really feel it in my butt and thighs so I'll keep doing them.
Also, if you are more advanced, I think it is ok to skip stage 1 and move on. He's writing to women who have never lifted heavy before so, I think, stage 1 is more for beginners.
"Speed eliminates all doubt. Am I smart enough? Will people like me? Do I really look all right in this plastic jumpsuit?"
