Did shoulders again yesterday and went to see my chiropractor to adjust everything back in place. I'm supposed to fit in Legs (week 8) today, not sure when-- actually hoping my evening plans fall through!

Still plugging away- on week 7 of the program. Today is shoulders which has me a little worried because something is out of whack (even during yesterday's flyes were aggravating my shoulders). I think I need to go see my chiro and get adjusted.

Last Friday, I decided to start at week 5 since I've been doing 3-4 days/week of weight training for the last 4-5 weeks. Today was day 34: Legs. I'm back to being chicken about lunges and free weight squats so next session I'm really going to need to work at least one of them in (I'm substituting the squat machine and Leg Presses for now). I'd bumped up my weights considerably in the last week and a half, so I think I'm on track.

Woohoo Hillrunner Mary!

Jen- good to see you plugging away at exercise.

I'm just back from vacation where I only weight trained 6 or so times and mostly did hiking and adventure sports (not enough to make forward progress but enough to keep alot of vacation pounds from adding)

It was back and cardio today. Some new machines and weight moves so being patient to see improvements.
I did a stationary interval session for the cardio. Worked hard at it and felt powerful when finished!!

I finished Week 3 yesterday and I'm jumping to Week 5 because I have a significant impact on my schedule coming up in a month. I want to make the most of this attempt at doing the program, so jumping into Phase 2 with cardio today.

Yay Jen! Today I did Legs -- Day 15.
I never do Dead Lifts- they were permanently vetoed by my Physical Therapist a few years ago. I do rear leg lifts on a ball- works the same muscles, but safer on my back.
I just look up the exercises on Bodybuilder.com and look to see what muscles it works, what alternates they list there, and if I don't like those- check the exercises on Spark to see if anything appeals to me.

I did legs yesterday- modified it a little bit. I'm not up for sumo dead lifts, so did sumo squats instead. I also couldn't quite pull off a cable pull through...so did the lying hamstring machine. I am not as sore...and I am not sure if that is good or not..but at least I can walk without groaning!

Woo Hoo its Friday!

Your guys are doing awesome! I have just restarted. I am doing Nia Shanks fat loss/,uscle builder program- she is from girls gone strong....and its only 4 days a week, and only 4 cardio days, so I do them at the same time. Once I get my schedule and life a little more into a rhythm, I will probably go back to live fit--I just can't pull off 6 days a week just yet! I am so sore today though! not sure if it was the weights or the run or both, but taking a month off didn't help!

Hope everyone is pushing on!

It's great to have you back girl! That bloat will be gone before you know it. I always get a little of that on trips. I just might join the plank challenge. That I can do. It's the 30 days of squats that kills me:) Go get that workout!!!

It's official all. I am signed up for the Indy 500 Mini-Marathon. Yep, me doing 13.1 miles with two dear spark friends. We managed to all log in at the same time and our bibs are all in order. Can't even begin to tell you how scared and excited I am!!!

Hitting Cedar Point tomorrow for HalloWeekends. The lines at that place and those darn roller coasters are just as scary as the half! Well almost:)

Okay, back to the grind. And although I didn't gain weight on my cruise- I must have gained inches because nearly NONE of my pants fit me anymore. BLAH! so frustrating that being sick and off just a couple weeks can be such a big deal.

Today I'm planning on a full body workout minus arms and shoulders. I'll work on those Saturday and Sunday and then get back into Week 7 of Live Fit Monday with Legs.

I am also doing a 30 day Plank challenge. m.active.com/fitness/Articles/30-Day

Well, 4 days of flu (still stuck with cough and congestion but fever is gone enough). A little off track, but I'm going to attempt day 32 Arms/Abs today at home. I really hope to have enough energy to do Legs tomorrow. That way I'll have time to do another round of Legs before my cruise.
enough rest!

Well, had hoped to do day 31 Legs today, but ain't gonna happen. I can barely function with this bug that doesn't seem to respond at all to cold/flu meds. Too tired to even watch tv...

Woohoo LFF! Sorry to hear you are sick though:( We must somehow be spreading cyber-germs around here. Be careful. Think it's a good idea to do it at home. Just in case you feel totally spent. You never know when you are coming down with something. Rock on and feel better!

Okay, I have started back with LiveFit today. oh, how I missed it! So my original thought was to start on Phase 2 since I've been hitting the weights consistently for the last 2 months anyway.
So it would have been Day 29 - Back & Cardio. But since I have a cruise in 10 days, I want to try to compress a little to fit in the first 2 weeks of workouts, so I thought - why not Day 29 and 30? I was thinking- do the Chest and half the Abs at home mid-afternoon then go into the gym for Back, remainder of Abs and Cardio after dinner.

except I am sick today. Fever, sore throat, congested.

I got through the Chest (went easy on the side-to-side pushups by doing them on a wall) and Abs (skipped the cable crunches since I don't have a good set up for that at home), but now I am thinking *if* I do the Back also today (later), that I should do that at home as well. I shouldn't go spread germs and frankly, I don't want to look weak and wobbly in front of other people. So we'll see if I manage the 2nd workout and cardio later tonight.

Either way, I'm happy to have done anything at all and be started back on the program!

Hey ladies- sorry I was MIA (at a biz conference) last week.
Jen- yep, Phase 3 is killer. I hated plyo too. Sprints were scary, so I had to negotiate (ok, try doing at least 12 minutes- then try doing at least 20 minutes... I usually ended up doing the 30 minutes in the end, but it was getting on that treadmill that was the hardest.) I also would stretch out the rest periods by the end (maybe 30 seconds on with 45 seconds rest).
Also, you could substitute *any* HIIT (high intensity interval training) exercise for the sprints. So if you'd rather get on the row machine or bike and go like mad for 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds, repeat 30 times- then you can do that instead!

And here's where I'll make your day... If you REALLY find yourself NOT doing it and wanting to quit and since you only have 11 weeks for the program-- finish up week 9 and then skip to week 11 of the program, finishing up with week 11 and 12.
The 2nd part of Phase 3 is circuit training. You will love it. Still tiring (no rests until after one complete circuit of 8 or so exercises will have you sweating).

The plyo and sprints are HUGE for fat loss, so if you can do it, DO IT. but if you feel icky, week 11 may do wonders for you.

Great job Jen! I giggled at the cranky comment. You have no idea how cranky I am today. Wicked:) I am going to attack some LiveFit this weekend. I may not be able to follow the daily schedule with the hours, but will keep pushing and knocking them out. Trail run happening tomorrow. Lots of rain today so that means lots of mud and squishy feet tomorrow!

i skipped sprints yesterday, but I am still so crazy sore from what I have been doing. It amazes me how rough I am feeling, but I think it will be good in the end,

The plyo stuff is really hard for me- just very creaky to start, and oodles of jumps doesn't help. I am feeling pretty cranky too ;P

Super proud of you!!! The 3rd phase is killer. I remember:) Listen to your body. Sometimes I would mix in more plyo bursts rather that the run. To be honest my sprints are not sprints to many. LOL Hey, if I am sweating, breathing heavy and working, that is what counts! You got this!!! I would sometimes mix things up a bit when I felt spent. There were days I was so tired I would get majorly cranky. Well, that is me on a bunch of days. LOL

So phase 3, day 2- I am dying. I still feel super stupid doing the little cardio things in between the weight sets....and the sprints killed me. I am so sore. I was probably at the gym for 2 hours.... I am seriously not sure I can do tomorrow. I am playing with ideas on how to modify so I can do it tomorrow...sprints are just so hard on my body.

I don't think I will make it to week 12-my vacation is that week-so no gym :( but, 11weeks will be awesome. I will probably re-start live fit (or something) when I come back.

Ugh, okay time for bed

I'm here to whine-oh my goodness phase 3 day 1 killed me. I felt extra stupid hopping around the gym ( the teen boys snickering did not help!). A few questions

1) is I normal to feel like death?

2) alternative to jumping rope? Not sure my knees can keep up with jumping. High knees?

3) Im a bigger girl-tomorrow with the sprints is freaking me out.

Ok, that said, I feel pretty strong for doing it (blister, sore body, everything), but this is the first time I really thought I may not be strong enough. I'm going to push through, but I'm going to try

Welcome to the team Kimmie! Hope you're still going strong Jen! Congrats on finishing Phase 1 Kristin!
Kristin, do you have one of those straps for your forearm to take the pressure off your tendons at the elbow? This helps when mine flares up. And ibuprofen. And less weight.

This has been a rough week for me. After the hike last weekend left me with huge blisters on the backs of my heels, I didn't want to do cardio at all. I did 18 holes of golf on Tuesday and I was limping by the end from the darn blisters.
They are better now- actually could have done cardio yesterday but still didn't. My last workout had been Wednesday when I did Back/Biceps/Triceps. I skipped cardio and then skipped my next two WT and cardio days.

Today I finally just decided to go to the gym and do 3 full body workouts. Well, everything but Biceps and Triceps. I'm not sure if I'm bored with the Labrada workouts or its just a motivation thing.

I got my new trail shoes this week. Now that my blisters are gone, I'm hoping I find motivation to go try a short run tomorrow for some cardio.

Oops! Forgot to post here. Last day of Phase 1 happening today and than onto Phase 2! After this last week I was struggling with the idea of taking an entire week off, but no, I am going to keep plugging away. Problem now is that tennis elbow thing is getting worse and may limit my moves soon if it doesn't get better. Grrrr, to injuries! Going to work on the diet some more. MORE eggs are calling :) and :(

Hi and welcome to the team Kimmie! Woohoo on your soreness:) Twisted as that may sound. LOL It is great to hear you are loving it. I am working on my second time doing LiveFit (although I have incorporated it into workouts even when I wasn't doing the full plan). It is a great program!

Only have two ST days left in Phase 1. Legs tonight. Guess this means I will be saying goodbye to two rest days. MM and I were just talking about how this means walking lunges and supersets are coming. Ugh! Lord, give me strength:)

Good job Jen! I feel your being physically and emotionally tired. I am there right now. I did back/biceps, skipped the run and was not into the workout. Hate when those times come:( We can do it!!! (((hugs)))

Back/biceps done and have no idea what I have for a workout tonight. My days are feeling mixed up. Need a good, long meditation...ommmmmmmmm!

Yesterday I did arms, abs, cardio, today was legs day 51. I am so crazy sore-I think more so because I did some weird lateral trainer yesterday and my knees are so sore. I tried to increase weight today, and I feel good. I'm also tired- physically and emotionally . It's hard to make myself get to the gym.

k-hope you had a good run and ST tonight, and that you elbow oes okay with the training.

LFF- hope you got some fun outdoor activity in. You are doing awesome!

Missed this one yesterday. Sheesh!

LFF: I am always surprised by those days where I feel weaker. For me it is usually because I need a rest day or maybe a stressful day that did wonders on the bod. I cannot figure the weights out on our home assisted pullup machine. I end up mixing up between assisted and unassisted (even if I can only pull myself up 4 inches. They are still my nemesis! Occasionally I bring my weight down on preacher and concentration curls and do them slowwwly. Glad you got in that much needed outdoor time. I found that on Sunday I was a little sad having missed the long trails. Nature, sweat and time with friends does a body and spirit good:)

Like I said in the other thread, I took a rest. Planning on ST and running tonight. Have to do a little running around to score some neon stuff for us and our run on Saturday. Dollar store here I come. Needless to say it will be a late workout.

Rock on all!

Today's workout was weird- I was SO weak!
Monday I was able to do 3 sets of 12 underhanded pullups (assisted by 46 ... or was it 90 lbs- Ok, this could be the problem). Today I did ONE set of NINE assisted by 38 pounds and couldn't even do SIX for the next two sets even though I increased the assist to 55#.
So I'm realizing I did the math wrong. I think I was LIFTING 46 pounds last time and not ASSISTING by 46.
Worse yet, one of the older gym rats Thumbs upped me after my first nine.
I was so irritated that I couldn't do more than I did 3 sets of underhand pulldowns on the Lat machine.

Of course, that wasn't all- I had trouble with preacher curls and the concentration curls-- even with 10 pounds! very frustrating workout.

I tried the rowing machine. I got through 9 minutes and had to switch to elliptical.

I didn't leave as grumpy as I thought I would, but still frustrated- especially when I came home to discover my planned cardio/hike for tomorrow was cancelled.
I NEED some outdoor time!!!!

You are doing fabulous!!! My legs don't hurt too bad, pretty much the side butt muscles. Some of it is the sciatica thing. Preacher curls are rough on my joint.

I AM taking that rest day today. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

My butt hurts. But better than the thighs- I remember the couple times that LiveFit made getting up from seated comical.
I *way* overslept too. Think the Legs did me in.

Sorry to hear about the Tennis elbow Kristin-- I have a twinge in mine that I am taking precautions with (not lifting too much on the preacher curls, where I feel it most)

Go Jen Go!

Today I am looking forward to a "short" WT for Back and Bi's and 1/2 hour of cardio. I'm rotating between elliptical and bikes (and maybe I'll throw in rowing next week) to keep from getting too bored. At least I feel like I'm making progress on my goals, so I'm motivated to keep at it, even if its boring!

You are BOTH awesome:):):) I am joining in to say that my legs are sore big time. I can barely get up from a seated position. Ouch! I am really tired today. Overslept. Combination of the cooler nights with open windows and a leg workout. I am STILL having a hard time supplementing. It makes a huge difference for me and I am feeling it. As if my body wasn't already falling apart I have tennis elbow right now. Not sure how that happened. Life is good though:)

Awesome LFF! Think I will incorporate some of the Labrada plan after I finish LiveFit. I like the idea of shorter workouts and then if I want a little more I can CHOOSE to add:)

I did back/biceps last night with a little treadmill. Felt good walking downstairs to do it, but was one of those nights that the heart wasn't in it. Strange how that happens. Food was good, but didn't eat enough during the day. Need to stash some more protein in the desk for those days, plus make sure I always have some protein powder there.

YAY both of you!

Today I am soooo sore! Whole upper body (chest, shoulder, tri's - from yesterday- no surprise!)
So glad I only had cardio (picked the bike so I wouldn't have to move my upper body) today!

I am liking Labrada so far. I am not sure its the same program that was out when Libby suggested it, because I tried that last year and didn't care for it that time. Now its working well for my schedule and motivation level. It seems similar to LiveFit Phase 2 so far...

YAY Jen (is that what you go by?) You are doing great. I still don't have any kettlebells:( Have a groupon to use for classes, but am not sure when that could happen with all the LiveFit. lol
Go get that chest and abs, oh and the dreaded cardio. I am much more of a weights kind of gal, but the running is starting to become fun. Gasp! can't believe I am able to say that.

I am feeling better and am geeked about working out. You kind of have to go with it when "geeked" days come!

Great to see more people joining in. I love it!!!

I did day 2 week 7 of live fit yesterday- so all legs...but I had to use some kettle bells instead of te barbell- and my shoulders and arms are killing me- I have chest, abs, cardio for tonight- not sure I'm ready but I'm going to do it!

That sounds like a really rough program LFF- but sounds really good at the same time. I'm probably going on vacation near the end of live fit- totally hadn't considered it!

Hope your energy feels better tonight K-getting-fit- sometimes a nice workout can clear things up!

Great job and keep it up ladies.
Today I started (day 1) Lee Labrada's Lean Body program. I only have 6 weeks until my cruise, so I'll hold off on repeating LiveFit until after that (when I'll have 10-11 weeks until Christmas)
Today was Back & Biceps as well as 26 minutes on the elliptical. Of course I pick a crazy (busy) day at the gym to hang out in the free weights area for the first time.
Tomorrow I'll stick to my home gym for chest, shoulders and triceps.

LOL! I am the same way. Not sure what I am on today. Holidays mess me up. WTG on the bike ride. I did about 12 miles yesterday (3 to the trails and 9 on the trails). Feel MUCH better today. I swear my body was broken yesterday:) Planning ST today.

Biked 13 miles yesterday. Was exhausted so I skipped my weights. Today is chest and triceps. Still sore from my bicep workout the other day. I think I am on day 17? Good thing is I can see some muscle forming on my upper body. Yeah!

yeah, the first couple weeks are only 35-40 minutes and then they increase in length (hour to hour and a half in Phase 2 and for me, 2 hours in Phase 3- that includes the cardio time, of course)
I have to start wearing my wrist guards at the gym.

Woohoo on that leg workout. Don't hate me, but I LOVE leg days:) Shoulders and triceps...ICK! :)
That is about how long they take. Depends on where my head is on any given day. Keep focusing on form. It is important. I know with me, the second time around (or any time I have revisited LF) I found it easier. No wondering how to do a move, had my binder set, knew it... First round felt more chaotic even with studying my routine before going downstairs to workout.

I forget to put my gloves on. The boyfriend bought me a nice, bigger pair for my man hands. lol It is kind of like gardening for me, I like the feel of the weight, like the dirt, in my hands. Thing is I am fighting some nasty callouses. Shook someone's hand at work and was embarrassed:/ I believe LFF may use wraps. hmmmm, can't remember.

Stay strong. You ARE pushing past that 30 day mark.Wonderful parts in the 2nd and 3rd phases. It is worth it, even on the tough days. I've been there;) You may just need to remind me when I hit those walls.

Today is leg day for me. Yuck . But I will get it done, i just have to think about the positive results . I was curious about how long it took anyone to do a typical workout? Jamie states that it should take about 45 minutes to an hour. I am usually done in about 35-40 minutes. Is this too fast? I am really trying hard to focus on form and I think the first few weeks are pretty easy (2nd time around).Last time I stopped on day 30. I do need to buy some type of weight lifting glove with wrist protection.

Yay LFF! I loved the mud run. We were going to do the Down and Dirty one this coming weekend, but just decided today that we won't. We need to budget these things and try to sign up earlier for better pricing. We have a Neon Vibe run in September and a Zombie run in September or October (will hit Cedar Point for HalloWeekends after to celebrate and make a night of it).

2nd round, Day 1 completed last night (chest/triceps) and a run. Yes, I am modifying again. Need to keep up with the running or should I say jogging:)

Awesome! I wish I loved shoulders:) I have bad shoulders and cannot go high on weight STILL. Enjoy that rest day.

I did the Gladiator Rock'n Run mud run today and it was a blast. Definitely doing more of those. Ended up with a nasty bruise on my shoulder from the log carry (I assume that is where it came from). Can't wait to hit the weights tomorrow. Kristin found some extra mojo today:)

Welcome MCSCRAPM! Congrats on starting the program. You will love it. Legs were my favorite, even when I can't sit or walk the day after. LOL You start loving the healthy sore. Bodybuilding.com is a wonderful site. That is at the top of my bookmarked sites:) We have threads on here where we have shared our modifications. Please keep posting. You got this!!!

I am starting back on the second round, full-force after the race. Can't wait. I've missed the weights. May start on Sunday if I can still walk after tomorrow:)

I am on day three and worked on legs. Challenge to do exercises that do not involve machines, but at least I have a bench and weight set. Thankfully bodybuilding website has subs for every muscle group. Awesome website. I also started taking more supplements. Chromium piccolo ate , d3 , and super b complex!

I hope you both are still plugging away successfully. Trips and events do tend to muck up the schedule a bit. I've had to adjust my weeks a lot this round-- sometimes combining, sometimes extending a week, and occasionally dropping a workout in order to get back on track. I did not work out all weekend and in Phase 2- that means another day behind. I let go of the notion that I would be "done" with the program by the first weekend in May. I mean- its not like I'll stop working out after that and be done-done, so it will take me a bit longer to get to the end. As long as I get to the Sprints of weeks 9 & 10 before the Mud Run I have, I think that would be good.

Let us know how you're doing with your week!

Oh no, I hope you feel better. Let us know how its going.

I am starting Week 4 tomorrow but my schedule is a little messed up this week because I have an out of town conference for 2 days and then I am running in the Color Run, which I signed up for ages ago (before I knew that I would be doing this program). I am going to try and fit it everything but may only be able to do 4 days instead of 5. I'll let you guys know how it works out.

Today I started week 3 (day 15). If you guys recall, weeks 3 and 4 are when you can work on lagging parts on one day... so I rearranged my workouts so that I can do that. My lagging parts are definitely my shoulders, so that's what I worked today! This workout definitely took longer than the past ones which was expected, but what sucked is that towards the end I started feeling sick. I'm not completely sure why... it could have been a few different reasons, so we'll see how my next work outs turn out.

Excellent! that is really great to hear!
Its always nice to see the numbers change-- don't get focused on them too often though! Most people don't necessarily lose weight in Phase 1 while muscle building, but you'll be totally set for major changes in Phase 2 and 3.
I am progressing in ways that matter to me- my numbers would seem small this round, especially compared to my first round last year, but I have less than 10 lbs to lose now and just going for a lower body fat range. I'm down about 5 inches since mid-Jan, mostly in my middle section where I'm still storing fat. I know I could do better, but I drink socially too frequently. Its a major drain on the metabolism!

Keep it up!

Well, I woke up with sore legs this morning so I guess I pushed harder than I thought:)

I am able to run with my knee but doing things like elliptical, lunges, leg extensions (things that require it to bend and straighten a lot) tend to hurt more. Don't know why exactly but I guess it was the nature of the injury.

Anyway, finished Day 4 today and I am already down 1 pound and 0.6% body fat!!! I love to see results, it really helps to motivate that much more!!!

Let me know how you are doing:)

Leg workouts are killer. i usually sleep really well afterl. Not sure how much you run (how do you do that with a bad knee?), but I know for me, nothing works my legs like these weight training sessions (not biking, snowboard, hiking 130 miles in 4 weeks-nothing). I can ALWAYS tell when I've skipped one.
Be careful with the knee, but see what you can do about increasing the weight- even if just a little more next time (and a little more and a little more)-- it will be great for your knee if you strengthen your legs.
Always do whats comfortable for you, but try to push yourself a little more than you think- you can always drop to lower weights if you try something too heavy.

That's awesome!!

I just finished Day 3- Legs. I usually don't work legs cause I like to run and I figure that works them enough but this was a good workout. Don't think I did as high of wieght as I could have, I have a bad knee so I don't want to push it.

How are the leg workouts for you guys?
