    Can anyone recommend a knee brace to reduce knee pain while running? I find when I run the outside of my left knee starts to hurt about the mile/mile-and-a-half point. According to my google medical degree (;)) it's likely an IT band issue. I have proper running shoes (fitted with inserts)...

    Hi ladies! Popping in for a quick hello. :) I've missed chatting with you girls! I'm slowly healing. My throat is (finally) much better today but I still feel weak and not myself. I rarely get sick like this but when I do I make a huge production out of it. :p :rolleyes: Despite vehement...

    Those Crazy Biceps

    Hi Cathe!! I just started STS Meso 2 (which rocks by the way) and, because i'm using my heaviest weights to date (yay) i'm starting to really notice the strength difference between my biceps. My left bicep is definitely weaker than my right bicep. I just finished Disc 15 this morning, and...

I'm really struggling with Cathe's abdominal routines. The only routine I can honestly complete in full is Stability...
