    Back surgery anyone?

    And if so, 1. What was your rehab time before returning to working out? 2. Post-rehab, did you have to modify and if so, how much? I know it depends on the nature and type, but seeking generalizations. Thx!

    Question on hotel block

    Hi Cathe and Chris. Guess we're rolling toward Glassboro '14! YAY! Thanks again for all you put into these experiences. You are amazing. I have a question about the new hotel block of rooms. In the overview of the RT info it says for the new hotel you've reserved a block, and the rooms are...

    Question for dog owners

    Hi Cathletes. I've asked over on FB but thought I'd try to tap the wisdom here as well. We have an 8-month old golden retriever. This is the first dog we've had with which we've decided to follow a raw meat diet. I've spent a lot of time researching and understand the ins and outs of it. But I'm...

    LCS imbalance

    Hi Cathe. I hope this finds you well and thoroughly enjoying the beautiful days of fall. You know I've worked out with you for years, and then dabbled in heavier stuff as well. I was so proud of myself for my 200# squat, my 270# deadlift, etc. BUT they've been short lived at best. I've...

    supplement question

    Hi Cathe friends. I take a number of supplements already, but one was suggested to me that I'm unfamiliar with. Do any of you take curcumin and if so, what results have you seen? Thanks!

    Just to do it - or progress it

    Hello fit friends. I have a question about lifting. Do you just go along with a DVD or program, whatever, and do what you can do? Or does it BUG you when you don't see progress? I've injured my hamstring so I've switched up my lifts in an effort to let it heal. When I lift heavy, I really...

    Update from seated good morning experiment

    Hello fit friends. I promised to periodically post updates from my little experiment incorporating seated good mornings and Cathe's 100 hip thrust challenge, but going heavy, in an effort to strengthen the back chain muscles and help me lift heavier. I am inching closer to my stated goals and I...

    Apple Cider Vinegar

    How many of you drink apple cider vinegar on a regular basis? I drink it 3-4 x day and DH says not only do most 'normal' :p people not do that, he doubts that even those "in the know" on good health and nutrition do this. Pick me up here friends.

    True Indeed

    Happy Wednesday Cathletes. I came across these wise words from another forum and I thought I'd share. So often on these terrific forum boards I see folks who ask for guidance as they seek to drop pounds, saying they eat well and exercise, but pounds are just not moving as they would wish. I find...

    Inching my way toward my goal

    Hello all. I promised to post when I'd inched closed toward my performance based goals for 2013. I've been using Cathe's 100-rep challenges to help me get there, and in particular the hip thrusts so as the strengthen the back chain muscles, which I've always been weak in. As I aim toward a...

    Can you?

    Wow. This was a real eye-opener for me. I work out regularly and think I eat pretty well, though I do not follow a paleo diet and this info considers paleo. I should say that my personal goal is to be strong, and for that reason I always try to push past what Cathe offers most of the time. I...

    YOWZA - my trainer's spin on high reps!

    Trying to keep myself accountable and on-track as I inch closer to my heavy lifting goal re: the squat. My trainer told me that today (Friday is leg day for me) we would be doing squats high reps. Her version was different than what I had anticipated. 10 sets of 10, down to an 8" box with...
