    Lowering Intensity in Menopause?

    I would recommend a book by Stacy Sims, Ph.D. entitled Next Level (subtitled, Your Guide to Kicking Ass, Feeling Great, and Crushing Goals Through Menopause and Beyond). This excellent, science-backed book was just published a few months ago and gives the latest science on training through and...

    Hi there Nana2four. I don't actually know how to delete a rotation but I did a search in the forums and this question was asked previously. Here is a link to one member's answer to that question... good luck!

    Best shoulder workout.

    Wow Debinmi you are amazing! Great research on this. This really motivates me to get some of these out. Slow and Heavy certainly is a strong contender for top choice. What is your goal - strength, hypertrophy, endurance? I am thinking that may help determine which rep range you want to work in...

    Best shoulder workout.

    STS equipment

    Hi DebB1. I agree with Braille. The Turbo Tower and then the Fit Tower are the products Cathe has sold/used in the past but are hard to come by now. If you can't find a used one, any squat rack would work. In fact, a standard squat rack may be preferable. The Fit Tower is great for chest...

    Benefits of 3.5 month vs 6.5 month rotation?

    My personal opinion would be to do week 4 of Meso 1 two times. That is, do week 4 during May 1-7 instead of taking a week of active recovery. THEN, use the week you are away (May 7-14) as your active recovery week. Once back from your time out of town start Meso 2. I think two weeks between...

    Intensity workout

    I love, love, love the XTrain rotation you are doing. :) Great idea to use Intensity with it when you want to mix things up. That is a workout I go to a lot as it has so much variety it never gets stale. Thanks to you too, Debinmi. Great switch-it-out ideas. This idea of switching some...

    Cathe newsletter

    I typically don't read the newsletter any more because there are so many ads. Instead I read the new blog articles directly on the website each Monday.
