    LITE for advanced users?

    Hi! LITE Pyramid and Stacked Sets are a wise choice for cutting/endurance training. I have been doing a rotation of Strong & Sweaty/XTrain/Ripped With HiiT for a while, developing mass. I’m into a 1-month rotation using LITE Pyramid and Stacked Sets, working Upper Body and Lower Body twice a...

    Getting back on track after operation

    Thank you so much for your support!!! I was aiming for TravelFit and modified ICE to begin with, but not without my doctor's approval, of course... It's been a tough month but patience is a virtue and I'm happy to be alive. The good thing is that since I have almost no fat on my body right now...

    Getting back on track after operation

    Hi all!!! A little more than a month ago I had a quite serious operation (with a 10% chance of success) when my colon erupted. Luckily I survived (with a colostomy which I have to keep for 3-4 months, before going back on the table to have it removed). The doctors said I have a very strong body...

    Ripped With HiiT/XTrain/Low Impact Series Cocktail

    [Edited] Hi all! I just created this rotation with the undulating approach in mind. Tried to add these notes to the rotation itself but they didn't seem to save. Anyways, this rotation is made up of one week body splitting at 10 reps, one week at 12 reps and one week at 16 reps, followed by...

    Workout Blender and OS X 10.9 (Mavericks)

    Happy New Year, I'm running Yosemite, followed the instructions of completely removing Workout Blender and re-installing it, but workouts do not get imported. I can drag and drop them, then the pop up window comes up saying it is importing the file but after 12 hours it is still there but no...

    Problem adding the core workouts to premixes

    Thanks, Curt. I did notice that while preparing the premix, WB takes too long for some parts and works very fast on others (e.g. going from 10% to 60% might take almost 30'-45' and just a few minutes to go from 60% to 100%). Christos

    Problem adding the core workouts to premixes

    I managed to create the premix for BURN SETS Premix 2 Bi's & Tri's + Core #1, the core segment was correctly inserted before the stretch, but the aspect ratio was distorted. I'm using the latest version of WM, on a MacBook Pro running OSX 10.8.2. I am attaching a snapshot of the Bi's & Tri's...

    Moving to NY (from Athens, Greece... yes, a big step I know!!!)

    I'll have to rent a flat share... So no workout room I'm afraid... Also I can't afford taking all those weights with me or buy new ones. Besides I'll be coming home once a month or so, so I'll be able to catch up with Cathe.

    It's official... I'm moving to London at the end of August, starting work for the London 2012 Olympic Games Organizing Committee in the Accreditation Department.

    Extreme Urban Rebounding

    I bought the quad-fold Reboundair a few years back. It's sturdy and bulky and you can fold it in 4 so it doesn't take up too much space. I recall it being a bit pricey, though...

    Extreme Urban Rebounding

    Hi all! Thought I might offer my 2c here... 1. If you wear the wrong shoe and are an over-pronator, rebounding might give you IT band syndrome (I learned it the hard way, am an over-pronator AND wore jogging shoes on my rebounder) so be careful. 2. Rebounding does wonders to your...

    Moving to NY (from Athens, Greece... yes, a big step I know!!!)

    Thanks for your advice! I just checked online for apartments around Broadway and found a few (starting at $1200 which is quite reasonable). It's a bit soon but I like to keep things under control early on. Chris.
