    Starting over at 60 - Question

    Another vote for the LITE series. It feels very do-able, and once you feel ready, you can increase intensity by utilizing the calorie crush bonuses and increasing your weight selections with the strength training workouts. Hope you start feeling like a million bucks soon!

    STS 2.0 Update

    I hear you on rehearsals - I did a really minor dance routine once with a group and it was crazy how many weeks we put into practicing what was over in 5 minutes the day of the show. And that's just dancing! Glad your set is nearing completion. I bet that'll be a huge relief. Look forward to...

    maintaining STS results

    Cathe has a blog article regarding taking rest weeks. You can read that here: https://cathe.com/the-health-and-fitness-benefits-of-taking-a-rest-week/ From the above article: I've not done STS, so I'll leave it to others who've done the system to tell you their experience around maintaining...

    Officially finished XTrain 90-day rotation!

    I finished my second week of my summer rotation. A few great things to note: I was not scared one bit to up my weights for PUB and PLB. In fact, I matched Cathe with most of the exercises with a couple exceptions. I exceeded her selections in PLB for leg press and dead lifts. In PUB, I had to...

    Hurt my Knee - So Upset

    Congrats on your sobriety, ashaw!

    Hurt my Knee - So Upset

    Glad you're taking a rest week. :) That may be what your knee was telling you you needed if you haven't taken a rest week in quite some time. I schedule in rest weeks... I do them every 8, 7, and 6 weeks then back again... 6, 7, then 8. Those rest weeks are super important for your body to...

    Hurt my Knee - So Upset

    Ugh - injuries are such a bummer when you're on a roll with your fitness routine. I hear you. I'm not clear if your knee is really, really hurting you or if you just felt that weird sensation and it's making you nervous to do anything further. Since it sounds like you have full range of motion...

    Officially finished XTrain 90-day rotation!

    @Debinmi That's great you felt like STS didn't keep you locked in and you were able to add variety. I agree with you that I think the workouts I loved the most from XTrain were the upper body ones, because, as you mentioned, they produced results. The rotation I made will be interesting...

    Metabolic, PHA, Bootcamp, or Circuit Most Cardio-ish?

    Drill Max comes to mind at the top of my list. I haven't done it in forever since I lost the old VHS tape to it, but I think her Boot Camp workout from the Intensity series might be worthwhile, too. XTrain Super Cuts is good - I feel like my heart rate stays elevated 70-80% of the workout.

    Officially finished XTrain 90-day rotation!

    I finally started up on my summer rotation that I posted in the rotation thread after having a rest week last week. I was amazed by a couple things: #1 - XTrain really WORKED in improving not just my strength but my cardio endurance as well. Party Rockin' Step #1 usually has me huffing and...

    Summer 2022 12-Week Undulating Rotation

    Ah okay. Yeah. It doesn't get to me too much, so I didn't consider it. Week 10 is kind of like that, too with 4-Day Split. I figure since it's not an every week occurrence, it's not too big a deal. I'd probably start feeling it if I were doing that every single week! Feel free to swap in a...

    IMAX 2 Did All The Correct Steps on #9

    I love step work with intricate choreography. I get all mad at first and gripe at Cathe when I'm learning, but when it all finally clicks, the sequences are so much fun.

    Summer 2022 12-Week Undulating Rotation

    Thanks. I'm not quite sure where you're seeing shoulders getting worked on consecutive days, however? That's the Body Blast Timesaver week, right? Back and core are on a Tuesday and then shoulders are on a Friday. Unless you're saying working bi's tri's and chest are hitting shoulders too much...

    IMAX 2 Did All The Correct Steps on #9

    Way to go - that segment is tricky for me, too, even after having that workout for a good 15 years or so. I always get what side of the step I'm supposed to be on mixed up with all those T-steps and ricochets.

    Officially finished XTrain 90-day rotation!

    Yaaaaaaay. I'm so happy I saw this through. Today was my last workout. Next week I get a rest week and then I jump into that 12-week summer rotation I posted to the summer rotation board. I'm partially wishing I'd taken some measurements beforehand, but I'm really trying to step away from...

    Should I workout tomorrow night?

    I don't work out the day I have a massage (unless that workout happens to be BEFORE the massage). I figure I'm giving my body this treat of relaxation and restoration, I can give it a break for the rest of the day. Also, since I usually get my massages on Saturdays, Sundays are my rest day so I...

    Summer 2022 12-Week Undulating Rotation

    Thank you both. I'm finding I like planning out these three-month rotations because otherwise, what happens, is I'll just plan out a month and when the end of the month rolls up I'm scrambling around figuring out what to do next and I get anxious about it. haha. I don't follow Cathe's...

    Summer 2022 12-Week Undulating Rotation

    I decided to throw together this 12-week rotation after doing Cathe's 12-week (90-day) rotation from XTrain. The approach with this rotation is undulating while focusing on maintaining strength and keeping up with the good ol' "muscle confusion" tactic. I have a couple of "lighter" weeks (some...

    Next series after XTrain?

    Thanks, Debinmi - I have LITE but that's a good point heavying up with it. I haven't done any LITE workouts since starting XTrain - I have a few scheduled in my next 12-week rotation so I'll definitely make it a point to heavy up with those workouts and see what it's like. Really, that's a...

    Next series after XTrain?

    Given Cathe's got a sale going on this weekend, I'm thinking of maybe purchasing another series... maybe. (I'm also just eyeballing Perfect Pump). I'm on week 12 of the XTrain rotation so just about finished - woohoo! I really enjoyed XTrain - mostly because of its emphasis on lifting heavy and...
