Thanks for the input on how you manage the workouts and cardio.

I am re-doing Week 5 because I did only 4 workouts and was on plan nutrition-wise only 4 days.

Hi Anita- Although I didn't - a lot of people break up their cardio and weight training. The plan recommends weight training first, however as the emphasis is to still give priority to muscle building, but everyone does what works for them.
I work out at home and have a very flexible schedule since I own my own business, so if I want to take 2 hours in the middle of the day to workout and then work until midnight, well, that's what I do. (WANT would be a "loose" description of course)
I liked the idea of keeping it together, since you get an extra burn right after weight training. I want to make every second count. plus, I already felt like I was showering and changing clothes ALL the time, so doing it one more time during the day seemed like more time wasted to me. I do like being efficient.

I actually had the most trouble with Weeks 7 & 8 (body was getting tired) and then some challenges going into week 9 (Phase 3). Of course, I had a heavy work load and wasn't sleeping enough- so I recommend you don't rob yourself of that!

Hi Anita
I am trying to do cardio in the morning and weights in the evening and sometimes do the opposite. Like getting the cardio out of the way and the weights are a great evening meditation for me. Found I was missing the boyfriend too much. We are already on different schedules so evening is our time. We both end up doing work on weekends too so time is precious. Been feeling a bit guilty about not seeing him (even though we live together), but realized that we are doing okay.I am happier which makes for a happier us:) Last night we were laughing and practicing some groovy disco moves. It's all good.

I am lucky to be able to work out at home. The time is an adjustment. You will find your groove. Building myself up for Phase 3. Even longer. We can do it. Okay off to work out. thank goodness for Saturdays and Sundays for flexibility.

I'm starting Phase 2 (Week 5) on Monday, and found this topic. It would be a good support to see how others are doing with Phase 2 or how it went for them.

My concern is the increase of time needed working out. How do you do it?
Has anyone broke into two workouts one day's workout? (ex. Go to gym in morning before work and do half of the day's workout, and go to gym after work and do the rest of the workout.)

I looked at the workout plan and it looks like I will be doing ALOT of motifications since I only workout at home and only have dumbells..........may invest in some resistance bands soon.

As for cardio I only have workout DVD's. Guess I will do that or go for a jog outside.

The carb is taken from dinner and placed in the afternoon snack category. This is actually carb manipulation, not really "cutting" carbs. This way your body won't have any carbs past 3 pm. The calories are pretty much the same.

As for a pullup, you can do them "assisted". Most gyms have an Assisted Dip/Chin machine where you can do pullups. If you don't have access to a gym but have a bar at home, you can use a chair underneath you and use it for minimal assistance. If you need more help w/ these, let me know and I can give you more suggestions.

I checked it out a little today, tomorrow I plan to peak more. I'm nervous, but excited. Adding cardio shouldn't be tough for me, but taking a carb for dinner...watch out family, Momma is gonna freak out LOL! No, I should be able to do this!!!

Did you see it?

I can't wait but a little nervous.

I know I can modify it, but I've NEVER done a pull-up

cant wait!
