    How different is the STS to P90X?

    I think P90x is a great warm up for STS. I did P90x for a year when I moved into my home. STS had not come out yet, and there was no gym anywhere near where I lived. I refused to get fat, so I got P90x. It was great for that year, but I was soooo relieved when STS came out and I was able to do...

    Who has the go wear fit?

    I have had one for about 9 months now, and I have mixed reviews. First off, I don't think the display is worth spending the money on. It never matches what the armband says when you upload it to the computer. Sometimes, there is a 200-300 calorie difference. I've called customer support several...

    i am thinking of ordering insanity

    I'm also thinking of purchasing Insanity and doing it on my cardio days. How many times a week are you supposed to do Insanity? I'm not too familiar with the program outside of the informercial. I would also like to keep running because I would like to run another marathon in the near future...

    How many more cup sizes do I have to lose?

    Thank you for the suggestions. I have tried Pilates in the past but found it too slow for me. I'm just afraid that I'm going to be an A cup with the same big legs. AARRGGHHHH!!!!

    How many more cup sizes do I have to lose?

    I've been doing STS for 9 months now. The first time, I did the 3 month rotation and this week I finished a 6 month rotation. I can honestly say that this last one was much harder and much more intense. I lost some body fat. My arms are more toned, and my chest went from a D cup to a B cup...

    Do you really have to do an active rest week?

    My first time through, I only did the 3 month program, and I skipped the first rest week. I too had just completed a marathon. It didn't hurt me. My second time through, I did the 6 month program and really hit the weights hard. I was exhausted by the time my rest weeks came around, and I...

    No period?

    I have been on the pill for 15 years and took my last one on 9/9. Since then, I have not had a period. I know that I am not pregnant. My husband recently had surgery, and we did not have sex. Prior to starting BCPs, I was very regular. I could tell you exactly what day I would start. I never...

    bodybugg/GWF questions

    Mine hasn't helped me to lose a single pound. I wear it everyday. I enter every morsel of food I consume. Believe me when I tell you that I'm type A and very anal. I've just maintained, even when it tells me that I'm meeting all my goals. I like the actual GWF, but don't waste your money on the...

    Effects coming off birth control pills

    I've been on the pill for 14 years, and I'm taking my last one tomorrow. I'm excited and scared all at the same time. I want to have a baby, but at the same time, I'm very scared about what pregnancy will do to my body. I work very hard to stay in shape, and I'm afraid I'm going to freak out...

    Any opinions/info on Synthroid??

    I've been on Synthroid for 3 years now. I love it. It's made such a difference in my life. I could hardly get out of bed before I started taking it. I have not gained a single pound. As a matter of fact, all my syptoms have been reversed. Several endocrinologists have told me that some people...

    I wear two weighted vests at one time and place the dumbbells on my shoulders. I also put a towel around my next and shoulder area so I don't crush my boney shoulders. It's been working great. With all that stuff and the dumbbells I do have, I'm squatting around 96lbs. It's not super super...

    The Side "Stitch"

    I'm a marathon runner, and I've noticed that whenever I eat peanut butter or bananas before I start a run, I get a side stitch too, so I avoid them. I also have noticed that if I burp, it tends to go away. I've read several running books and articles on the topic, and it appears no one can say...

    which is best for weight loss

    I did the 3 month rotation the first time, and the time just flew by. I'm doing the 6 month rotation this time, and I can feel the difference. I skipped my recovery weeks twice the first time around, but I would NEVER dream of doing it now. My body is usually begging for a break with the 6 month...

    I use platemates. They are magnetic plates you can add to the end of your dumbbells.

    If you're having trouble completing Plyo, you should probably decrease your weights.

    Will STS make your lower body smaller?

    I did 3 months of STS and now I'm doing the 6 month rotation. I'm half way through, and I have not lost a single inch in my thighs. I tend to gain all my weight there, so it's to be expected. My arms look amazing though. I do plyo legs and the leg workout every week. I also run 3x/week. All...

    Plyo legs STS strength

    My gowearfit says I burn 180-200 calories depending on which workout it is. I was surprised how low it is because I feel like I'm working harder than I am when I run, but I guess not.

    Additional leg workout?

    I do plyo legs on Mondays and the assigned Meso leg workout on Fridays. It's been working out pretty well for me. I tend to go a little lighter on plyo and heavier on the regular leg workout.

    Anyone else exhausted on 6-mo rotation?

    I did the 3 month rotation the first time, and it seemed much easier. Switching the 6 month has been really wearing me down, but I think my results have been better as well. I have 3 more weeks left in Meso 2, and I can't wait for my recovery week. During the 3 month rotation, I skipped my...

    Not Happy with GWF

    I'm to the point where I'm just trying to drop a few pounds of fat, so I can look more cut. I do cardio 5x/week plus STS. I alternate between steady state running (training for another race), intervals, hill runs, spinning.... It's just frustrating. I bought this GWF and paid for 9 mos of...
