    Best shoulder workout.

    Wow Debinmi you are amazing! Great research on this. This really motivates me to get some of these out. Slow and Heavy certainly is a strong contender for top choice. What is your goal - strength, hypertrophy, endurance? I am thinking that may help determine which rep range you want to work in...

    Best shoulder workout.

    Good question...I have found that XTrain is quite good for this area. Lots of options between the extra delt workout, the kickboxing, the 100 rep challenge (scarecrows), the burn sets and more. I also like the drop sets Cathe does in STS. Interested in what other Cathletes have found works...

    STS equipment

    Hi DebB1. I agree with Braille. The Turbo Tower and then the Fit Tower are the products Cathe has sold/used in the past but are hard to come by now. If you can't find a used one, any squat rack would work. In fact, a standard squat rack may be preferable. The Fit Tower is great for chest...

    Benefits of 3.5 month vs 6.5 month rotation?

    My personal opinion would be to do week 4 of Meso 1 two times. That is, do week 4 during May 1-7 instead of taking a week of active recovery. THEN, use the week you are away (May 7-14) as your active recovery week. Once back from your time out of town start Meso 2. I think two weeks between...

    Intensity workout

    I love, love, love the XTrain rotation you are doing. :) Great idea to use Intensity with it when you want to mix things up. That is a workout I go to a lot as it has so much variety it never gets stale. Thanks to you too, Debinmi. Great switch-it-out ideas. This idea of switching some...

    Cathe newsletter

    I typically don't read the newsletter any more because there are so many ads. Instead I read the new blog articles directly on the website each Monday.

    Workouts to help with menopausal symptoms.

    I am now 12 year post-menopausal but menopause was wicked for me. The years between the ages of 43 and 51 were SUPER TOUGH. :(:( I too tried many different things to deal with the sleep challenges and other symptoms. Getting enough sleep and more consecutive hours of sleep was my main concern...

    Slow and Heavy Series still being used?

    What is the PS series?

    Slow and Heavy Series still being used?

    What a great idea, Debinmi! I think Slow & Heavy would be a super way to prepare for STS 2.0!It is a great series to have because it is very unique and so provides a great complement to the other serious weight training workouts you may have in your Cathe collection. Nothing else quite like it...

    Starting STS

    There is one in the Workout Manager under Popular Rotations (4th one down) entitled: 31/2 Month STS + Newer Cardio. I put this together in 2017 so it is more recent than the one Cathe posted in '09. Here is what is in the general description: This rotation gives you all 36 STS workouts in...

    daily strength flucuations and STS

    This is an excellent question, JuliaV. I have also found this to be the case for some exercises. Personally, I lowered my weight and did the same number of reps as the program recommends. It was still challenging! I recorded that weight and then went from there the following weeks when...
