Thanks for all the info, i decided to have an extra back training with maybe a lil legs/glutes too. My legs already are toned, i just want them with lesser fat hehe. I wont do that heavy leg training anymore because i can see an upper leg development that im not really fond of. I do love to do all the cardio again, i really feel its working for losing the fat.

I am doing legs twice a week because it takes so much for me to be able to see some definition in them.

For me it is a toss up between legs or back. I am not there yet but need to decide in the next week. I like the idea of doing half and half. Hmmmmm

I was getting physically ill after leg days and discovered that was due to putting too much weight on my shoulder barbells (doing squats, etc. ). I wonder if sometimes I was placing the weight too high and that was effecting my neck too. I got that fixed but now I am concerned about hitting legs twice as once was a wipe out before the "fix' last week. I am still going to try legs twice though.
I am seeing better definition in my calves, which I like. My legs appear leaner but I will share the measurement results later...when I compare this month with last.

wow ladies thanks so much for all the replies. My language might have been kind of dramatic but i was really starting to play mind tricks on myself *that time of the month doesnt make it easier lol*

Yeah i already thought i read about the lagging body part! In that case i think i'd like to train my back an extra time, or mix baxk and some high rep leg training. I can keep up with all the training, today i felt fantastic when i finished cardio! It always makes me heel so good.
By the way, is the rest here doing the second leg day too? Or working an other body part?

Again ladies, thanks so much!

I thought she uses Legs the second time as an example. She says to pick a lagging body part, one that you want to work on and add it in a second time. It doesn't have to be legs twice, it can be arms or back. All you have to do is arrange the workouts so that you don't do the two body parts close together. So it may be that you do Back and Biceps, then Legs, then Chest, then Back and Biceps again.

I am agreeance with the two other ladies. I have naturally big legs even without any lifting. However, I find that when I concentrate on my bottom half, it helps to slim and lean them out and not bulk them. If you are afraid of the bulking, then maybe lessen your weight. She just gives you the exercises, reps and sets; you pick the rest. I hope this helps you.

I wouldn't worry about bulking up. I used to worry about that all the time and it has never happened. Also, don't fret too much about the weight. I am focusing more on my measurements during this program because I am lifting more than I have in a long time. IT feels good though to see my body changing, leaning out, and getting stronger.

Keep up the great work. I start Phase #3 today or tomorrow. I was a day behind this morning, so I did the last day of week #8 this morning. I am contemplating doing a second workout after work today.

The second day should actually result in leaner legs. From what I understand, lifting very heavy one day a week will bulk. The calories on the program are fairly low so you should end up with lean not bulky look by the end of the program. Although Jamie looks totally ripped, her body measurements are very tiny.

Actually Jamie does a second leg day because that is her trouble area. She says somewhere in her trainer that she does legs twice a week because legs are her lacking part and that if you want you can change say your trouble area is arms add in a second arm day just make sure you watch your splits. Hope that helps if you have more questions ask.

Hey all,

Im just finished with week 5 and starting week 6 tomorrow. Ive been able to keep up with the workouts so far, but my diet could be a lot tighter- working on that!

Im kind of struggling with the heavy lift leg workouts, twice a week. Ive gained since i started the program but im just keeping in mind the fat will go down again with the coming cardio sessions. I am really scared my legs will get too bigfor my liking though, i want smaller legs! I have a strong build and have quite some muscular legs already, i dont want to gain mass on them like Jamie herself does. I really need some help, what are your opinions? Just train legs once a week? extra cardio for the second leg day? or just keep on following the program to a t? less protein?? oof!
