    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...

    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?

    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...

    Intensity workout

    I'm super happy with myself that I've made it half way through the XTrain 90-day rotation so far. I've been enjoying it so much that I'm sure I'm going to do it again this year after a three-month "break". One of my only issues is that I get pretty burned out on doing the same cardio day in and...

    Predominance of back exercises in XTrain 90-day undulating rotation - consecutive back days

    I'm on week 6 of the 90-day undulating rotation that comes with XTrain. Just finished Chest, Back, and Shoulders. Tomorrow is a Tabatacise premix of choice. The suggested premixes all include Burn Sets Back. I notice this pattern repeats itself during weeks 6, 7, 8, and 11. Sometimes the...

    Anyone use offset weight selections with Bowflex SelectTech weights?

    I've been working my way through the 90-Day Undulating Xtrain rotation (5 weeks in - woohoo). I know the goal is to ultimately keep increasing your weight as you feel ready, but sometimes the jump from one weight to the next is a little intimidating. Fortunately, I have a pair of the 552 (5lbs...

    Know your anatomy for squatting

    I recently watched some YouTube videos about squat anatomy, explained by a doctor of physical therapy. I'm going to preface this with the fact that I've struggled for years to squat deep - even to parallel. I've followed all the advice I've ever heard to keep your feet pointed forward, no wider...

    Thank you, Cathe, for your caution in XTrain Burn Sets

    I just wanted to say a big "thank you" to you, Cathe, for your word of caution on listening to your body when it came to going really heavy for double-arm rows in Burn Sets. I logically know my back muscles should be able to handle pretty heavy weight for rows, but I have lower back issues...

    Provide modifications for sliding exercises

    I'm not a fan of the sliding exercises, namely because I am on carpet. I usually try to modify on my own, but if you do future exercises using sliders, could you consider having one of your cast show non-slider modifications (ie: you might have better modification suggestions than what I can...
