    Cycling Training

    I’m looking for advice from Cathe or anyone with training experience. My question is for advice on how to help my daughter improve her endurance. She is 5’2” and 210 pounds. We recently purchased bicycles and plan to train for a 75 miles charity bike ride (the Ride to Defeat ALS) in New...

    Bosu Ball

    I'd like to have the Bosu ball incorporated into some workouts. I did a thread search and it looks like there are others out there who enjoy the core challenge of the Bosu ball. I wonder if there is a restriction on instructors outside the Bosu company using them. Maybe that is why we haven't...

    Downloads - Opinions

    Thanks!! I'm so excited to hear this positive feed back. Thank you both for the input. I will be ordering the downloads for gym styles. I will also go through my collection (which is everything Cathe has done since 2003) and figure out which one might work best at the gym. I'm super...

    Downloads - Opinions

    Can I get some opinions on how people enjoy using the downloads at the gym? Is this basically the video on your phone? If so, I'm wondering how that works with how fast Cathe switches to a new excersize and all the variety that she puts into her videos. I am considering this option as my...

    I started STS after about 18 mos. of not working out. My experience is that it took 6 weeks to drop on the scale even though my clothes were getting looser. I lost 18 pounds at the end of the rotation went from a size 12 to a loose 10. Since then I stopped working out regularly for about 6...

    Completed Workout

    The page simply does't update to mark that a workout posted in advance is completed. In the bottom left hand corner of the screen where it will say "Done" when a page is finished loading, it says "error on page" and the immediately after it says "Done." It must be on my end. I just have to go...

    I think I might have an eating disorder.

    My experience. Mercurial, I’d like to share a little of my experience with you. First, I am 40 years old and have suffered with Anorexia/Bulimia all my life. The worst was from age 15 to 32. When I remarried at age 30, I decided I needed to make my new life with my husband my priority rather...

    Protein after weight lifting workouts

    I am under the impression that it is important to eat protein immediately after a weight lifting workout. Something to the affect of the muscles need that protein right away to begin repair and creating new tissue. Is this true? Not sure where I got that from. I workout at 6:00 a.m. and then...

    Completed Workout

    I have my workouts scheduled for the month in the workout calendar. I would then click the "completed" box and the calendar would update to show that a workout was comleted on a particular day. I am no longer able to click completed and have the calendar update to indicate such. I get a...

    Right Arm Weakness

    It is not news to me that my left arm is stronger than my right. Probably because of carrying around a 2 year old in my left. What did suprise me yesterday is how much stronger my left is. While doing week 1 of STS Hypertrophy Biceps and Back, I was cruising along just fine lifting 30 pounds...

    Is this happening to anyone else?

    I have also noticed that towards the end of the program, I'm not able to lift what my "goal" weight is. I don't think the 1RMs are off if you can do it in the beginning of the workout and that this is just part of building your endurance/strength. I'm keeping notes of what weight I used and...

    Jessica Simpson's Body

    Okay, I see now. This is a UK article calling JS a size 12 (Size 8 in US). I guess the comments below the article are pretty revealing. Its a tough crowd overseas...yikes.
