    RWH 2 month or Xtrain 90 day Undulating

    I'm getting ready to start a new long rotation. I'm trying to decide between the RWH 2 month rotation (which I've done and LOVE) and the Xtrain 90 day Undulating rotation (which I have not done). I have done many Xtrain workouts and love them too, but I haven't done the heavy lifting ones. I...

    Video Tutorials

    Hi Cathe, Like most of the people on this forum, I'm a lifetime exerciser. I consider myself very fit and relatively strong, thanks to your videos and leadership. Also, like most of the people on this forum, I've always been an "at home" exerciser so that can sometimes have me question proper...

    Cathe, Is this you and Deezee?

    I found this picture on a local gym website while looking for a local kickboxing class. I thought, "Wait a minute that looks like Cathe".

    Weighted Vest

    I'd like to get a weighted vest, but know nothing about what I might need. I'd like one that is adjustable, but what would be a good total weight. I know there are some of you who have them and use them so I'd love some advice. Thanks.

    I'm Huge

    I'm a 30 year aerobic veteran, but I'm only about a year into heavy weights and I love how strong I've gotten; I am in love with RWH. A major drawback is that I have gotten much bigger. My shoulders are huge (my son calls me the Hulk), my legs have gotten bigger too. Many of my clothes are...

    Protein Powder?

    In the "Training and Eating Smart" conversation some of you posted that you thought that protein powder caused weight gain. I've only been using protein powder for 9 or 10 months, but I have not been able to lose a single pound since. I eat a mostly clean diet so I haven't been able to figure...

    Clean Eating and Carbohydrates

    I follow a pretty strict clean diet. My overall aim is for twice as many veggies as fruits; lean, organic meat, with an occasional organic red meat; avoid wheat and sugar almost all the time (I do eat small amounts of raw organic honey); no processed foods, except protein powder. My question has...

    Rotation planning

    I'm trying to plan how to fit the January rotation into my schedule. I get up at 5 to find time to work out so I don't have more than 45 -60 minutes in the morning, depending on the day. Some days I have to leave earlier than other days. I'm looking at separating the workouts when there are...

    I am 5' 7.5" and have always weighed between 132-135. I am 44 now and my weight has crept up to 140. I eat about 1600-1800 calories a day and track that carefully ( I just can't keep to the 1200-1300, I'm starving all day). I have not changed anything, in fact in the last 5-6 months I have...
