I finished legs 80 min man i really have alot of work to do. Lol i had to stop alot during barre work and floor wkrk. And with the ball roll ins i just did both feet on the ball at the same time. I think i will have to work ,up to this dvd but at least its possible. I dont know if i you can call it doing the whole thing but i didnt stop just modified and had to stop a few reps short. Im sure ill feel it tomorrow.
Nice job everyone!

Hi everyone, hope you don't mind my joining...this is exactly what I was looking for! I am starting the 90 day undulating program tomorrow. I took the 1 rep max test today and loaded it all in the workout manager and will take my stats tomorrow.

I am really looking forward to this program and am hoping to have and give lots of support and accountability to ensure that I get in all of the workouts and eat clean for the best possible results. I did try out the first workout Chest, Shoulders & Tris and previewed several and love the moves and music.

Count me in! I am in Week 2, Day 2 of the 90 Day Undulating rotation. I am sticking to it, and I am so motivated to do these workouts! After having my 3rd child, a year and a half ago, I just let myself go. I had PPD that I got treated for, I went back to teaching full-time, and I just didn't have the time to exercise, or at least that's what I kept telling myself. So, I let my eating go as well. I have about 15 pounds that I need to get off of my 5'1" frame! I've been a member or WW online as well, but had no motivation to follow that either. So, that is why I am super excited for this new program!!!! I LOVE Cathe (have for years), and I get easily bored with workouts (that's why I enjoy and look forward to these boredom buster workouts). I've been tracking all of my food on WW online for the past week, and now I know I can do this. I'm in it for the long haul. So, yes, count me in. I need the support and motivation!

I gained 40 pounds in the last5 or 6 years 1992 AFTEr i had kids i started exerciseing cut out fat a.d greassy foods and i lost 70 pounds. Kept it off but gained 40 back recently, but i feel im eating healthy and for the last yr still havnt lpst. So this time im trying to really pay attention and stick to a rotation.

I'm starting tomorrow 7th, hopefully will be able to stick with the rotation as well. I like to run on Saturdays so I will need to change that schedule. I'm not good in checking in but Im always here reading comments, lol.
I don't have much weight to loose but my goal is muscle toning.

Jann-- it looks like we both started today? I did chest, back and shoulders today plus added in all out low impact hiit, core #1 and the 100 rep lateral raise challenge. I am betting I will be sore tomorrow! My hip flexors are still aching today from the legs I did on friday-- hopefully they are loosened up some now.
Renee-- i love the low impact hiit! it's not as intense as crossfire or to the max, but i still get a good sweat in and i appreciate that it's low impact as my tendonitis seems to take it fine.

i have cardio legs set for tomorrow. looking forward to hearing from everyone how their rotations/workouts are going!

not looking forward to back to school for my kids and work for me tomorrow, though! back to my 4:45 wake up times. blech.

Greetings, Everyone,

I am just checking in to say hi. Today is my rest day and I am taking full advantage of it. I had toyed with the idea of doing some yoga today, but I had/have a bunch of other things queued up that I need to take care of it so I don't think I'm going to get around to it. When I have a rest day, I also try to eat super clean that day and stick to my calories pretty strictly, so I'm not that worried about not getting any extra exercise in today.

I start week 2 tomorrow, and I'm looking forward to it.

I am feeling pretty good today, although last night was the longest night of my life. Every time I rolled over in bed, I could feel my pecs screaming. I was so sore! I'm a little stiff today, but it's definitely getting better. I was hoping for more lower body DOMS today based on the leg workout yesterday, but I don't really have any. I guess I should be happy about that, but I'm actually a little disappointed. My inner thighs are a little tender, because they definitely got worked, but not so much on the quads and glutes, which are the parts I'm really trying to slim down. I am going to have to put in a little more effort the next time I do that workout, since I cheated a little bit. That's what I get for being a weenie.

Welcome to all who have joined in this weekend! Katied, it looks like you went crazy today. You've got to be feeling that tomorrow! The pec soreness I had was from the 100 Rep challenge for Chest. If anyone works to work those muscles to death, I highly recommend that session. I did not have that kind of soreness after the regular disc.

Fit44 - I was your cartoon last night, that's for sure!

Raciela, I would guess you could swap your workouts around so that your running day made up for one of the cardio days? That's such a leg intensive workout too, it could probably be subbed for that. I'd be curious to hear how you plan to incorporate that in to the rotation.

Jen, good luck with the WW + XTrain. I did WW online a few years ago and found it was helpful to me. I was eating pretty clean, and for me it was better to move over to MyFitnessPal so that I could track calories over points, but the discipline of logging was developed using WW and it has served me well. YOU CAN DO THIS!!

Eileen, if you're looking for a good way to track your food and you don't have a resource already, I strongly encourage you to check out MyFitnessPal. There are a lot of Cathe fans who use it, including me and I think Renee does too, and I love it. It's easy to use and has an app to go on your phone so you can log anywhere. The database is expansive and it is a great app. And it's FREE!

Renee, how did you like the Low Impact HiiT? That one really worked my legs hard...more than I thought. My heart rate was not insane, but it was good for the workout, and I liked the variety on that one. I'm looking forward to doing it again.

Vicky, I hope you loved the workout today!

Jann, I hope you're sore tomorrow (I mean that in the best way!)

bchgrl40, did you get signed up for new transformation program and get started yesterday? Did the leg workout meet your expectations for dread factor, or was it less horrible than you'd initially suspected?

Terina, welcome. I love your signature!

Katied, I liked Cardio Legs. It is a lot like STS Plyo Legs, but maybe a little less difficult. The weighted exercises are not as brutal.

For those of you whom mentioned you've never stuck to a rotation, I can relate. That was me for years, and then one day I followed one and I was hooked! I think this is my fourth one, the most recent being STS, which was also a long one. I really like having not to think about what workouts to do every day, and I have absolutely found that I get better results working the rotations than randomly choosing my workouts. I'm convinced that putting them together is a science, not just a random mix and match exercise, like when I workout on my own. Based on my previous experiences and results, it is so worth it to do the rotation. It's like magic, really!

Ok, back to my chores. I'm supposed to be studying and making bread, but it's nice to check in to get a little study break.

Enjoy the rest of your day!!


PS. I was thinking about starting a new thread every week, but there really is no point. We're all doing the rotation, but since we are all at different stages, it probably makes the most sense to keep using this thread.
