    STS without 1RM

    Hi, So, I've had STS for years, but I have never started. One reason is because I lack some equipment. I have dumbbells up to 30s and i have a barbell, but I have no squat rack. Because of this, I am limited to how far I can advance. But do you think STS would be a good workout just as a...

    Shoulder Pain

    Hi Cathe! I have recently returned to weight training, working out about 3x a week using the gym style series and full body STS. I have noticed that i have shoulder pain in the front of my shoulder, top of my arm near my collar bone. It is sore to the touch! It hurts when I do any chest...

    What cardio to do during STS?

    Hi Everyone! :) I have had STS for many years now, but haven't attempted anything but the separate STS full body workout. The reason for my delay is, I have had chronic mono and some thyroid issues that sort of wiped me out. I am thinking of doing STS now, but the cardio has to be low impact...

    Patella Tendonitis?

    Hi Super bummed right now. I have been trying to get back into the swing of things for a year now and I did very well from February until about 2 weeks ago with lifting and working out. I even lost 22 pounds, but NOW -my right knee has betrayed me. Actually, the pain isn't in my knee...

    HIIT Cardio

    Hi Everyone - For those of you who have done this HIIT Cardio workout with the 30/20 and the 40/20 (I think I have that right) - in your opinion do you think you need the step for this? Or could you improvise with a high step that has a couple risers taken out? I don't have the regular...

    Having trouble getting started...AND 1RM

    Hi Everyone... I have had STS for a few months now, but I'm having trouble getting started. I have done the first or second workout in the first mesocycle, but after that, i've fallen off. It's not that I find it boring, I think it's more that I'm a perfectionist, so if I miss a workout, I...

    STS Weight Loss

    Hi Everyone - I just bought STS and it should be here tomorrow or Thursday. I'm super excited! Just wondered if anyone could tell me how much weight loss (or maybe "size" loss) I could expect? Thanks! Reese

    Can anyone tell me more about STS? Are you pleased with it??? I'm seriously considering it but just want more information on the cycles and exercises in general. For example, in Mesocycle 1, how do the workouts cycle through the body parts? (Does that make sense?) Just want to make sure...

    Hi, Does anyone know if I can get the nutrition and exercise instruction booklets that come with P90X somewhere other than from Beachbody? They want $30 PER BOOK plus shipping...and I can't afford that. I cannot find my booklets anywhere. I think I left them in a bag I donated to Goodwill...

    At least now I know...(long)

    Hi Guys, I have logged in here and whined about how I'm tired and feel sick/lousy and have gained weight probably since fall of 2006. I used to run 5 miles a day several days a week and lift regularly and that slowly came to a stand still. About a week or two ago, I could barely climb a...

    SUPER SAD right now...

    My husband called me to the back door about 20 minutes ago and said he found our cat Chubby in the back yard. He was passed and his leg was messed up so I think a dog may have gotten him...which breaks my heart even more because he may have suffered for Lord knows how long before he passed. I...
