I totally agree with you SUSAN. Since we're all working out at home and mostly on our own, we only have ourselves as personal trainers, so I do err on the side of caution when it comes to increasing weights. I'm pretty meticulous about logging my reps and weights, and I find that helps me figure out whether increasing or decreasing is a good idea.

Good luck with your plan!

I got that way during PUSH, and I posted a similar question and was given the suggestion of taking a week off between phases and just focusing on cardio with some light strength training. And don't ever "GO HEAVY OR GO HOME". Go as heavy as you can handle. I went too heavy this week on BC3 using 10lbs for the delt and lateral raises, and overhead presses, and ended up with a horrible migraine. I should have known better since 10lb is what I'm doing for bicep curls. So listen to your body and just do what you can until you get stronger.

Right now I am doing 2 days of Zumba and the CLX weight lifting days.

I too would like to incorporate the C25K running...the only way I can figure to do it is to then do just 2 day of the C25K or to do a couple of days that include a workout session in the am and another in the pm.

This is how I see it for me. My Zumba days are pretty set in stone since it is a class.
Tuesday--Circuit 1
Thursday--Circuit 2
Friday--crosstraining, running or elliptical
Saturday--Circuit 3
Sunday--either a rest day or another crosstraining day.


Monday--Cross Train/cardio
Tuesday--Circuit 1 and a cardio workout
Wednesday--rest day
Thurs--Circuit 2 and a cardo workout
Friday--Cross train/cardio
Saturday--Circuit 3
Sunday--Cross train/cardio

Don't know if that helps you. It would also depend on how much time you want to put into the workouts. Good luck!

I posted the Workout Question a couple of days ago. I think I have pushing myself to hard and then I do tend to get burnt out as well as be sore. I'm trying to come up with a new "plan" one that will get me results yet not get burnt out on. I would love some suggestions on how to set up a good routine. I want to incorporate: Zumba, Elliptical, Treadmill (C25K), Yoga and ChaLEAN Extreme. I would LOVE some suggestions : )

Happy Friday!!!!!!!!!!
