    I did this workout this morning & feel I am stronger than when I first started the getting started rotation. Love the shorter workouts and the weight & cardio mix.

    RWH Bonus Abs

    Great review. I did Bonus Abs 2 this morning & felt the same way about the bike maneuver variation. I'm hoping with time I'll get it. Looking forward to trying Bonus Abs 1

    Premix glitch?

    Glad to know there's no glitch. I was wondering the same thing when I did this workout this a.m., but I just went back to the main menu; chapter & selected the stretch as suggested. It was fine bc it gave me time to cool down a little more.

    Split Hiit Rotation (Uses Xtrain/LIS)

    I do have both Party Rockin step DVDs but I'm not of fan because I'm so uncoordinated. I'll give it another go. Maybe with practice, I'll get better.

    Split Hiit Rotation (Uses Xtrain/LIS)

    Looks like a good rotation, but I don't have any of the cycle or pedal power DVDS. What would you recommend to substitute?

    XTrain/LIS Metabolic Split Rotation plus XTrain/LIS/100 rep challenge/ Metabolic Rota

    I'm also an early riser. I'm usually up by 4 a.m. & start my workouts about 4:30/5:00 a.m. I've gotten into the habit of drinking at least 12-16 oz of water when I 1st wake up; then I drink 1/2 my protein shake & keep drinking water when needed during my workout; then finish the protein drink...

    Ball of the foot pain and high heels

    I've had pain in the ball of my foot for the last couple of years. I've seen two different podiatrists; had steroid injection shots; and an MRI with no clear diagnosis. I've used orthotics and shoe inserts and nothing seems to help. I have never worn heels. I'm not really sure where to go from...

    XTrain/LIS Metabolic Split Rotation plus XTrain/LIS/100 rep challenge/ Metabolic Rota

    Day 3 done! Boy were my arms shaking by the end of it. Can't believe I made through the entire premix: 89 minutes. I did have to take a couple of breaks to get additional water and a potty break, but I made it. I wouldn't mind a check in with this rotation. I'm not so good at keeping track of...

    XTrain/LIS Metabolic Split Rotation plus XTrain/LIS/100 rep challenge/ Metabolic Rota

    I started this rotation this morning. I'll be alternating weeks: one week split, one week endurance. Did LIS Total Body Upper + Cardio Supersets with modifications to keep low impact. Boy, I was drenched by the end of it. Love it. Day one down. Don't know how long I can keep up the longer...

    Something to Crow about

    Crow pose is something I've been considering lately. Thanks for all the suggestions. I think daily practice is a great idea. I love the links showing the steps to work towards the full crow pose. I'm going to give it a try & practice every day this week & see how far I get.

    I am in week 5 of this rotation & I do feel my endurance improving. I am able to do more push ups on my toes & take fewer to zero breaks. Feel like Rocky - getting stronger yeah!!!!!!!!;)

    Question for STS repeat offenders...

    It really depends on the exercise. For shoulders, increases are minimal less than 2-3lbs; biceps & triceps a little more and legs saw the greatest increase, but again it depends on the exercise & body part being worked

    I got hubby to workout with me!

    This post encouraging. I would love for my hubby to lift weights with me, but like one of the others said, he played football in high school & is not interested in lifting more weights + he says he gets too bulky through the upper body when he lifts weights but I think it's something we could do...

    Hi Marih, I started your rotation on Wed. I've done the 1st 2 workouts which are the disk #1 & 2. Wow! Talk about DOMS from the upper body workout & that was just chest, shoulders & bis. DOMS are usually delayed about a day, so I'm waiting for my legs & glutes to start talking to me tomorrow...

    Road to Recovery Check In

    Hi Sandra, I read your post & wanted to wish you well on your road to recovery. Last year I injured my foot (specifically the ball of my foot); not sure how, but the doc says it's a pinched nerve. Short of surgery, I can't seem to find anything that helps. I used to walk 3 miles a day M-Th and...
