Thanks everyone, I took the suggestion and it made a huge difference! I lasted longer at the new step height than I ever did before. Of course I'm thrashed now, but I also feel great. emoticon By the end of the month, I should be able to do the whole workout at the new height--at least that's my goal!

Also agree. I would try to increase the time of the step height slightly for each subsequent workout also. Give it all you got then when you feel like you're running out of steam lower the step height. Next time you do the workout try to go a little bit longer with the extra riser. Cathe is the toughest workouts I've ever done. Nothing wrong with modifying.

I agree. Bump it up at the beginning. I always try to bump up my step after 30 mins into a step routine and have to go back down immediately because I can really feel a huge difference than I do if I just start it with it bumped already. I hope that made sense. Ha!

I'd rather add at the beginning while I'm fresh and lower when I feel the need.

When you're ready to increase your step height, is it better to add the riser in the beginning and go as far as you can before decreasing, or to start with the old height and add a riser after a perceived exertion test, sometime in the middle?
