I just went to the YRG site and they said they are making "Exciting changes" and to "check back soon". I just placed my order for the YRG system and heart rate monitor.

How many days per week are you supposed to do these videos? I do cardio on my days off but plan to use these for my primary strength workouts (with, of course, the bonus cardio that comes along with the workout). <BR> <BR> Would 2 days per week work? I'm worried about getting in enough cardio in 6 day per week workouts. Of course, I am a woman so I... Sat, 27 Aug 2011 17:46:44 EST YRG Daily Dig Ok.
