I hope there are still people reading this team page...
Not sure if I am "in" the program, but I read and re-read this book, and I lift at least twice a week in addition to two swim days. I never really followed the stages, but I try to follow other rules -- never lift two days in a row, more protein intake, don't do Barbie weights but lift as much as I can in good form, etc...
I love lifting, and I love what it does to my body. I lost ten pounds in 10 months, and the muscle tone... I think I will keep going with this program!

Appreciate life.

I will be starting stage 2 next week. I workout from home so I have to make some adjustment in exercises.

Anyone still in the program?

did workout a of stage 2 for the first time yesterday. WOW! it was awesome but definitely harder than stage 1. and that squat push press... i will definitely need to get a trainer at the gym to look at my form and help me. i'm sure i was VERY wrong with it. but i loved it, nonetheless. i feel like this stage is REALLY going to help transform my body.

Holy cow! I can't believe the way I was sore after doing the elevated foot lunge in Stage II-but it was a good hurt, if you know what I'm saying. Though I was able to squat with 85lbs (in the Smith machine) I'm only able to do bar weight (45lbs.) for the squat push press...it encourages me to keep on keeping on to read how others are doing with this program.

High-fives to everyone!

I like that idea of going onto youtube to watch proper form. the book is very descriptive, but its hard to know if you are doing exactly what they want you to do!

I am starting on stage 2 in a few days.

Today I start Stage 2. Before I begin any exercise in this book, I go to Youtube and find examples on proper form and techniques. Here goes! I'm excited to be moving on to this next phase.

My last week of Stage! I did Workout A this morning, and then my last Workout B. Friday will be an active rest day for me. Then I'll start Stage 3 next Monday.

I'm excited because my husband and I got a great deal on a power cage off of Craigslist. So, more time at home for workouts. But, I still plan to go to the gym for days I need the cross-cable machine.

I am half way through stage 2 (completed 4 workouts)and I am sore but really enjoying it, other than the squat/push press which I am not very good at. My lower body is way stronger than my upper body, so I feel like I could be squatting much more, but I am maxed out for the press.

Wow, do I ever have sore quads today. My shoulders are a little sore too, but my quads! Think it was from the rear elevated lunges. Who would have thought such a small change would really make a huge difference.

I started Stage 2 today. From the way my entire body feels like rubber right now, I'd say it was a great workout. Much more challenging than Stage 1.

Loving stage 2, it's longer but really feels like a good workout. A welcome change from Stage 1 which was just too darn long.

I just started Phase 2, and I really do feel stronger. I still have a big problem with my right knee, so squats and lunges present problems, but I am really loving this program!
