    Circular yoga mat “slipperiness”

    I love, love, love my Cathe circular yoga mat. So nice to not scoot off the mat when doing 90-90’s anymore! Question though. When doing some moves, such as the standing wide straddle stretch in the Mobility workout, I find my feet ever so slowly slipping. Similar issue when doing down dogs. The...

    Circular yoga mat

    Just wondering if we have an ETA on the round yoga mats used in the Perfect Flow vids. I keep sliding off my rectangular mat doing those 90 90s!

    Can balance be developed?

    I just did Lower Body Blast and am always in awe of Jai as she does one-legged deadlifts while lifting her back leg. I tried...and almost fell and broke my face. Minus of course an ear problem that would impact things, is balance something you either have or you don’? Can it be developed and...

    Difficulty accessing on demand?

    Over the past week I have intermittent success accessing the on demand videos - I keep getting a message that the database can't be reached. Anyone else experiencing issues or is it just on my end?

    Way to measure band tension?

    I wore out two of my Cathe fitness bands and ordered more on line as we are no longer able to order directly from Cathe (insert sad face here). The "heavy" band that came in my pack of 3 was barely more than Cathe's pink band. Is there a way to know how much tension you're getting with a band...

    Brand name of weighted gloves in STS

    I know Cathe no longer sells Cathe-branded fitness accessories (sad face) but I wonder if anyone knows the brand of gloves used in STS - the kind with the sand weight pouches inside the top of the glove. I have a pair now I use for boxing, but the sand bag on one of the 1# weights has torn and...

    Anyone else always hungry when doing STS?

    I just love the results from STS from a muscle development standpoint, but I struggle to shed the couple pounds I always hope for, probably because I feel like I eat slightly more than usual because STS makes me SO hungry! Is it just me?

    Help understanding X10 calorie count in Workout Manager

    While I am the first to admit math and I are not friends, I am trying to figure out the calorie counts associated with the X10 workouts in the workout manager. The full X10 DVD shows a calorie burn (for me) of 667, but if you count up the calories assigned to each of the five segments...

    Pyramid Series - Bonus Combo?

    I did Pyramid Upper Body this morning and was curious what the "Bonus Combo" contains. I didn't see any reference to it in the workout manager premix section for this DVD (where all the chapters of a workout are provided). Does anyone know? Thanks, and happy new year!

    How many plunge lunges at start of S&S Boot Camp?

    Although I have done Strong and Sweaty Boot Camp several times, it wasn't until this weekend when looking at the guide that I realized the very first exercise is supposed to be plunge lunges... my DVD, however, skips (perfectly I might add) from the end of the warm up/intro right into the...

    STS mixed with newer DVDs

    Hi all, Has anyone seen a 3- month STS rotation that incorporates some of Cathe's newer, fabulous workouts (i.e., S&S, ICE, RWH, X-train...). I love these workouts but am not confident in my ability to properly mix them in with STS and still ensure I give my muscles the rest needed to get the...

    S&S Online Guide

    So excited - my shipping notice came! Bummer living in California as they have to go across the country twice before they arrive! Oh well. Has a link been posted yet to the online guide similar to what Cathe offered for Ripped with Hiit? Thank you Cathe and crew!!

    Alternating these workouts with STS?

    Cathe, I CANNOT WAIT to get this new series. It looks amazing! When it comes out, I should be about in the third week of the hypertrophy phase of STS. Could I alternate an STS workout with one of the S&S workouts throughout the rest of STS, or will that not give my muscles enough rest between...

    Please explain the "saw" move

    I did the ICE low impact sweat workout this morning with the ab bonus and was confronted again with the "saw" move. I can't figure out if I am totally doing it wrong, or if because I have the flexibility of a brick I am unable to reach out/over far enough to require my abs to engage to pull me...
