I use Dance Central as my "other" workout game. I find with Your Shape that I have to remind myself that I don't have to do it all perfectly, nor all the time. I tend to like to see my "score" at 90% or above and I too get very sore. Then I take a day off of the game, or maybe two depending on how sore I am. Then I go back and try not to do it so "gung-ho". Or I do a shorter workout - 15 minutes instead of my normal 45 minutes.

I do agree with you that Your Shape can be a challenge. I just have learned to stand still and watch for a minute if I'm getting out of breath. Or even walk off the screen when it has more than one routine.

I also am not in the best shape but, when Your Shape first came out, I was (I'm active duty military) and I found it quite difficult -- especially the pendulum. Now that I'm recovering from a few major surgeries and getting back into life in general, I found that the Biggest Loser is not only more do-able but more flexible when I can't quite perform an exercise (the trainer will actually switch to something else more manageable for me but working the same muscle group). I plan to go back to Your Shape in the future but, I'm using the Biggest Loser Ultimate Challenge until I recondition. Plus, the geek in me loves that it is very interactive.

OK - two days of doing the Your Shape 2012 and it hurts!

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the most "in shape" person out there but this is a bit crazy...

I think that maybe even the warm up exercises are difficult to do for those of use that are less than flexible.

It could be just me going at things like a bull in the proverbial china shop and I hope so. If not - then maybe there needs to be an "inflexible amateur wimp" setting on this one:)

So - the question is - is there anything a little more easy to do to get into the (literally) swing of things first? Maybe for a month or two - or such I just grow a pair, man up and get on with it?;)

Note - the above is a little tongue in cheek - but it does sort of highlight a little point that is important for some - the targets that Your Shape sets maybe a little high for just starting out?

Thoughts?



Chris:)
