    running question in Cathe's rotations

    I am a runner at heart, and always keep running. I have read you only need 3 runs a week. Great book Run less, run faster. One longer run, one speed workout and one tempo run. I would definetly keep your 3 days of running. None of Cathe's workouts compare to running. Running is one of...

    weight workout after HiiT

    I am doing Cathe STS strength right now. I do the first disc on Monday, 1/2 of the legs on Tuesday with a HIIT and then the other 1/2 legs on Thursday with a HIIT and then back/bis wed. Just an idea. The HIIT with the legs is a great workout, it's like getting some bonus legs with the plyos...

    The STS 6 month rotation question

    I did meso 1 2x, loved it, now I am in meso 2, week 4, only doing 1x and them meso 3 1x. This is working well for me. I find it hard and boring to lift heavy, so if I had to do meso 2 and 3 double, I would get too bored. Hope this helps. Mary

    Re-post: Travel Fit Bands

    Why no more TPR bands? I'm curious why the TPR bands will no longer be sold after they start selling the new ones. Is it because the resistance is too strong. In STS, is Cathe using the TPR bands. I would love to know. Thanks, Mary

    meso 2 help

    Thanks everyone for your feedback. Meso 2 is a challenge. I think it is because I prefer endurance workouts and mixing muscles up and not doing say all back to failure. I think since this is my first round of STS and meso 2 is scary and meso 3 might be crazy hard, I am going to do each meso...

    2 or 4 lb weighted gloves?

    I would recommend the new 4 lb microload gloves. I had both and prefer this one, because so versatile and I love the full glove, the other one was open and not as comfortable. Mary
