    New "Challenges" not correct on WM.

    Nan, my icon is still where your's first was, smushed on the bottom left underneath the other icons. It never fixed itself. But it I move my curser around, and click a few times, it eventually does bring up the "Challenges" section. So I guess I'll just wait and see if it fixes itself, as was...

    New "Challenges" not correct on WM.

    Thank you Tracy for that info. Here's a dumb question, though... how do I download the new Workout Manager? I thought it was updated automatically for you, since I've never really updated mine before, and I thought I was current. Hold on... just checked, and it seems I am running WM 3.5. But...

    New "Challenges" not correct on WM.

    I was looking for the new "Challenges" section on the latest Workout Manager, and it wasn't where it was supposed to be based on Cathe's newsletter. Instead of being on the upper right hand corner, it appeared underneath the the top line (below the Calendar tab, or around there). When I...

    Odd weight amount...

    I do the best I can with the weights I have to come closest to what is called for. So if the Workout Card calls for a 19# weight, I'll try using a 20# db instead. Sometimes it gets tricky, so I'll use a very unconventional method of ankle weights around my wrists (I know... crazy), and very...

    heart rate monitors??

    I agree with Alana... I'm sure they serve as a good reference, but I don't think the precise calorie burn calculation is that reliable. And knowing me, if I think I burned 300 more calories than I actually did, I'd treat myself to a big ol' bowl of ice cream! Not good. Marcia

    Novice runners NEW CHECKIN!!!! (sorry for yelling.)

    Alisha, Thanks for the welcome! I will periodically check in, let you know if there's been any progress. And Katie, Thank you for the breathing advice. I'll try that the next time. I guess I sounded like I was gasping for air. I wasn't really... just that sometimes I feel it's not in...

    Novice runners NEW CHECKIN!!!! (sorry for yelling.)

    Any advice appreciated! Hello everyone. I hope it's not too late to join in... I always wanted to run. Always admired those who can run hard, and long distances (or even jog for any extended period of time). I try to, on occasion. Today, for example, I ran/walked (best I can do right...

    Would anyone share their 1RM testing plan with me?

    I did them according to the workout for each disk. That is, for disk 1, I did all the 1RM's that were needed based on what the Work Book called for. Then for disk 2, I did the same, and so on. Not sure that was the best way, but it worked for me. However, I did find that there were lots of...

    Meso 2 Legs - OUCHIE!

    After reading the comments from the Meso 2 legs master file, I was beginning to wonder if I was the only one with the elevated heart rate during this workout. Using the heavier weights specified with the trisets, I also had to pause the DVD a few times to get through it. Holy cow... I was...

    Greetings From NYC

    Sorry I missed it! Hello Cathe! I SO wished to have gone to see you in NYC!! I live only across the river (NJ) and always wanted to meet you. (HUGE FAN!!) But I promised my sister I'd watch her kids this summer, and of course, today was the first day of summer. Figures. Hopefully...

    Printing the workout cards

    Sorry! You are right, Lori. I forgot to mention that you have to first click on "Show Details" before clicking on "Edit Workout". Thanks for correcting me! Marcia

    Printing the workout cards

    Hi Jennifer In case you haven't gotten your answer yet.... After you click on the STS icon on your calender, there should be a selection to the right towards the bottom that says "edit workout" (or something like that). Click on that, then your weight selections should appear. From there...

    Can't login under Workout Manager?

    The only way I know to get to the Workout Manager is to go to Cathe Nation first and then clicking on WM. However, that's where I have the problem. Trying to login from there always ends up with the "invalid userid/password" message. Is there another way to go directly to WM and bypassing...

    Can't login under Workout Manager?

    Hi! When I clicked onto my THE CATHE NATION website today, it directed me to a new and updated format. (Very nice!) However, I couldn't see where to sign in on that screen, so I clicked on "Workout Manager" which is where I wanted to go. I tried twice and it kept saying that I had a wrong...

    Complexity of choreography

    I like more complex routines also. It's a challenge to learn, keeps you from getting bored, and I look more forward to doing them!

    What Cathe move can you just NOT do - or know you look hilarious while you try?

    This list is too funny! Glad I read it, because now I don't feel so badly when I do things like: -fall backwards on the stability ball during "STS Stab.Ball Abs", head first... even got a rug burn on my arm! -barely nudge my butt upwards during levitation holds. -punch myself in the face...

    So bummed

    Hi Christiane! I hope your surgery and recovery go smoothly. Don't worry so much about STS, because you can always start over. Your health is the most important thing. Do whatever exercise you feel is right for you, and just be sure to listen to your body. (I've done Meso 1 but have to...

    Drill Max for recovery week?

    I did Drill Max, but without any weights (just the cardio portion). There's a couple of premixes you can choose from that do only cardio. If you decide to do the whole DVD, try to use much lighter weights. It's still a tough workout!
