Going strong folks! Great job!

Just finished day 9 back & biceps, added in a couple sets of crunches and bridges since the abs have been sorely neglected!

Week 3 done! I'm feeling strong and starting to see and feel my muscles (or muggles as my 3-yo says). Headed to Bikram later this afternoon to get my sweat on. :-)

Day 30 chest/abs done yesterday. Today I will do day 31 legs, Insanity and see if I can fit in a bit of my NYC Ballet DVD. Will probably need to space things out since it is leg day. Love legs, but they drain me:)

Hee hee. That made me laugh. I have had those arm days. Kind of freaky how you can't control the shake. Feels just like when I have one of my Bells Palsy episodes.

WTG on the workout and killing day 32.

It's strange, but that day of rest threw me off and I can't remember what I am working tonight.

Woooooah! Day 32 has killed me. That bicep superset hit me hard, definitely wasn't prepared for it. Feel a bit like jello right now as I weakly try to hold my recovery shake up to my lips.

I LOVE Jamie Eason's plyo card routine. You might like it because you mix it up and can modify it. I use the link on her site (different video), but for some reason the site is down so I found one on her facebook page and a text page on bb.com. It's a blast:)

As for the knock off program, it is kind of eh. Just my opinion though. Didn't cost much so I am not complaining. I have a bank of DVDs. New stuff all the time. Would use the internet,, but when I am working out the boyfriend is surfing the net on my laptop:)

Yes - but I think because there were less exercises I felt like it wasn't much of a session. Also, not sure why the change from 8 to 10 reps, etc. I'm sure there's a science to it, but for some reason I expected Phase 2 to start off a lot more difficult. BUT, you never know - I could wake up tomorrow and be like "OMGOODNESS my body is killing me!" and that will teach me to open my mouth!

I've thought about buying the knock off P90X program but I'm realizing I am kind of the opposite of what you describe. I get more motivated when I can pick and tailor my workouts than turning on a video. I travel a lot for work so that requires a lot of creativity with workouts depending on the hotel gym and what I bring along with me. So I guess I like to watch a video the first time, learn a new move or way to train and then just do it freestyle on my own. If that makes sense...if nothing else the tabata videos you linked might give me new parts to focus on during those times!

Thanks!

~Erin

Hi Erin:)
Congrats on entering Phase 2. Sorry to hear you don't feel as pushed by it. Just to make sure...you did increase the weight you are lifting, correct? It should now be at 85% maximum effort. So, pretty much higher weight and lower reps than Phase 1 (on the majority of moves rep wise).

As for the DVDs, I should say they are tabata-style DVDs. Although I enjoyed doing HIIT in LiveFit, I found that once it was over, and I wanted to include it in my routines, that I have a difficult time staying motivated. My attention span for anything close to cardio is null. Funny because I could lift for 2 hours (most of the time) and not get bored. lol. I shopped around and found some DVDs that I am enjoying (also had one from a set I already owned).

Here are links to the ones I have...

Amy Dixon Breathless I & II (like that I can choose how long I want to do it. also has modifications to ease me into some of the lateral movements I had problems with due to my ankle) Click on the preview link above the cover:

reme-90-day-system-supreme90-9383


I still like to do plain old Tabata with my GymBoss timer, but the DVDs help on the days I need some motivation. Sometimes I also add DVDs for ab work. Not sure why, but I seem to push myself a bit harder and end up doing more reps. Think the counting & "ugh" mind is shut off or something:)

Have a great week!!!

Yes, congrats on quitting smoking!! Wohoo!!


I started phase 2 this morning. I thought the lifting seemed on the light side but that's ok. I also did a 10 minute butt routine.

K-Getting-Fit: which Tabata DVD do you have and do you like it? How is it different from any tabata training one would do on their own? I do tabata 2 times a week ( 3-4 different sets)...so just curious.

Happy Monday! emoticon

Congrats on quitting smoking Becki:) Know how difficult that is. Maybe that is some of the reason for being tired. Body feeling a little out of whack as the nic leaves. Woohoo for making it to the gym. Maybe just do some walking or yoga for your rest day.

I did shoulders, abs and tabata DVD last night. Supposed to rest, but may do some treadmill tonight. Not sure. I really prefer to WO on the weekend, so I SHOULD take the rest on the weekdays. Really want to hit that 2000 mark for monthly WO mins though. Decisions???...:)

Shoulders and Abs (Day 11) this morning. Good workout. I really wish my body would stop revolting every time the alarm goes off in the mornings. I just can't seem to drag my butt out of bed on time these days!! I am running late getting to the gym every single morning.. IF I make it at all!!

Tomorrow is supposed to be a rest day, but I think I may hit the gym for some extra work anyway. I need it. I'm quitting smoking, and working out really helps me get through the cravings.

Becki- LOL...I believe being excited about the lunges from hell is slightly twisted. hee hee Woohoo on knocking out that leg routine. Healing vibes going out to that foot injury. Hope the marathon groove gets to come back on Monday:)

I worked legs last night, along with some incline work...ouch! Am doing shoulders and abs tonight. Think I will add something else in depending on how I feel tonight;)

Today I did Day 10. I love that I am going through this program again (2nd time through)! This time, I know what to expect and I'm even excited knowing that the "double walking barbell lunges from hell" are coming up in Phase 2. LOL

Great workout this morning. Leg Day! I love leg day!! Legs and Shoulders are my favorite body parts to work!!

Marathon training is a little behind thanks to my foot injury, but I'll hopefully be starting back on Monday!!

Hey Amanda:) LOL...not sure I LOVE doing the walking lunges, but they work! My favs are step ups and the old standby extensions and curls. Oh yeah, squats. Pretty much everything on legs, but those dang walking lunges. Ankle hates them more:) Sounds like you are on week 3. If i remember right, she mixes it up and has legs start the week. WTG on kicking out that workout. I will be pounding some legs tonight!!! Legs don't fail me now!

Yay Brenda!!! Congrats on completing week 1:)
My shoulders are still light on the weight. Funny because they are still developing. I am tweaking my routines a bit because have noticed that they are starting to pull forward a bit. Trying some stuff to get them to move back. It's surprising how quickly you can go up on some stuff. I kind of miss the beginning of the first round when the weights were jumping. Not seeing the same jumps anymore. Oh well, as long as they are still growing:)

I am starting week 2 today. Jumped one day because I didn't want the 3 day rests this time around. Took one rest day and did a Jari Love DVD on the other off day. Ouch! Lots of reps and burning. Prefer my rest days during the week anyways. May sneak in some extra cardio today. We'll see...

I just completed Day 8, chest and tri's. Woohoo! I'm pretty sure i'll need to invest in more free weights. My dumbbell bars are too big for the barbell weights. Its been good so far, interesting to see how weak I am in some areas, like delts and how strong I am in others.

Good evening Erin:)

For diet, I am pretty much just trying to eat clean the majority of the time. This was a true test for my obsessive nature. Wanted to do something that I will do for life, that doesn't make me feel deprived, eat foods that I actually like and avoid food allergens (I have a long list). I eat a ton of veggies and fruit. Yes, fruit. Will never cut that out. It has helped with sugar cravings. They are rare now. Graze ALL day long. The majority of the time I don't eat boxed, processed stuff. Make sure to get in a protein shake which helps me reach higher calories and feel better. If I really want something, I eat it, but in moderation. Big lesson is for me to listen to my body and how it responds to things. I still mess up, but feel so much better. This IS something I can do for life.
Am still losing. Now I am down to about a pound a week, was averaging about 2 a week in the beginning. To tell you the truth, it isn't my real reason for being on here anyways. I want to get healthy and do things I enjoy and figure the other stuff works out in the end:) One thing I always have to keep an eye on is getting enough calories. I don't fixate on calories, but need to make sure I get them. Makes a huge difference in cravings and workouts.

As for the workouts, I know it can get frustrating not finding modifications. I have a two books I have referenced and feel like I am getting a handle on it. Big difference from first round, when I was learning and occasionally overwhelmed. It gets easier, but even if it is not an exact modification it's okay. Here is a link I have used on the bodybuilding.com site;

Thanks for the warm welcome!!

What type of food plan do you follow? It's encouraging that you are on your second round of this! As I get further into the weeks I am having a hard time finding proper modifications for things. I am doing this all at home with my dumbbell sets, kettlebells and straps. I have a gym membership but only use it for racquetball on weekends - it's not a place I can get to daily, etc.

But overall, I am enjoying it!

Hi Erin and welcome to the team:) Congratulations on making it to day 18!!! Phase 2 is just around the corner:) I have modified the diet also. You know your body best. All the best and keep us updated. Excited for you.

I am on day 4 of the second round. Because of the stress of the last couple days I took last night as a rest day. So tonight it is legs!

I am on day 18 but I am only doing the fitness portion, otherwise eating clean 85/15 ratio by following a slowcarb diet. Anytime I try to eat like she has listed I will always overeat and eat more carbs that make me bloat. Just personal preference.

My chest, biceps (heck! arms in general) and lats are burning that's for sure!

WOOHOO on day 2 and feeling them biceps!!! As for the weight frustration I am still not to the weight I used in my youth on some moves. Funny thing is the body is changing more than it did in those days. Perhaps it is because I am actually EATING this time around. lol The beauty of weights is you still see great results when you are pushing those muscles, regardless of how high the weight:) I have said I would be more than happy to be at a really low weight if I was seeing results. Although I do find joy when I am able to go up;)

Today is the "official" start day for the second round. Have been doing it this past week, but want to start with weigh in day. Speaking of, I am off to weigh and measure, than workout!

Have a great Sunday and week!!!

I just finished Day 2. Woohoo! My biceps are at attention! I finally put that preacher bar attachment to work at the home gym. I'm anxious to regain some muscle strength. I figured out my max lifts and I'm bummed that my bench press is about 60 pounds less than it used to be. Oh well, that's why I'm here!

Weekends are good for me because I have time. I hope things don't get too crazy at work this week so I can stick to the plan.

Woohoo All!!!

I did a mix of ST moves and treadmill last night. Haven't weighed in or taken measurements yet. Gulp. TOM is hitting and I look like the pillsbury doughboy today. Nervous...

Woohoo Q! How do you like phase 2? I loved that phase.

Linda... I find that since I finished LiveFit that I am adding exercises to the 4 week plan. You get used to really working those body parts and feels strange to do a mix of upper body on one day. Find myself saying...what? only 2 tricep moves? i'll add another one." Ends up making a really long workout. lol

Tuesday
In between starting the next round, but am keeping with the diet and strength training.

Cardio: 60 minutes (30 mins 12% incline 3 mph/15 mins 3.5 mph/15 mins 5 mph)
Had to switch up the treadmill. Finding that running at 5 mph past 5 mins at a time kills my metal ankle...felt good last night)

Sit-ups 5 mins

Water, freggies, clean eating goals met. Made my calories. Have been having a hard time getting in all my cals, but yesterday was a good day.
