    Hi. I'm wondering why my legs haven't felt sore after working out. I've only been doing Cathe for about two weeks...BodyMax, IMAX, MIS, MIC, and PS Leg&Abs so far. Prior to using these tapes, I was walking, using my Stairmaster, and doing some TaeBo. I don't know how tall my step is, but it has two risers. I also don't know how much weight I'm using (stupid, I know), but it's just a barbell with no additional weights. BY the end of the workouts, my legs do feel tired and tight. And for BodyMax and MIS, I can finish the reps with the weight I'm using, but probably wouldn't be able to if I increased. Any suggestions? Should I increase the weights anyway? Maybe I shouldn't worry about being sore, although I love that feeling. :) My goal is to just tone up, gain a little definition but not a lot of mass, and to increase my endurance. Any thoughts would be welcome. Thanks!!!

    FYI, someone else a month or so asked this in "ASK CATHE"
    I believe Cathe mentioned soreness is not always an indicator.
    I personally have found if I am not sore, I am maintaining muscle but not building. IE, the first few weeks after I switch to a new exercise I am sore, but no longer.
    You were already pretty athletic prior to adding these tapes, so I am not surprised you aren't sore. But since you do feel it afterwards, I wouldn't be too concerned. You may want to switch to a heavy weight set if you aren't feeling challenged. It makes a BIG difference.
