    Workout card, Meso 2

    more info An example is on Discs 13 and 16. My one-rep max for bench presses and flys is 27, so on Disc 13, where I should be lifting 70% 1RM, it lists my target weight as 19. That seems correct. But then, on Disc 16, when I should be lifting 75% 1RM, the target weight is still listed at 19...

    Workout card, Meso 2

    That is not what I am seeing; I understand the wave loading. Perhaps I am not understanding how the program rounds numbers. Thank you for looking into this. Tracy

    Workout card, Meso 2

    Forgive me if this has been mentioned. Workout cards for Meso2 weeks 2 and 3: we're supposed to be lifting 75% 1RM, but the target weight amounts that are printed out are actually 70%. (I think this system is awesome!) Tracy

    Curved Barbell vs, straight

    I only have an easy curl bar, and I find that I can do any of the exercises in Cathe's workouts just fine with it. I don't notice any problems with putting it on my shoulders for squats, etc. I guess it just depends on your personal preference. Tracy

    Question for the Bread Bakers!

    I've made bread with white whole wheat and found it to be indistinguishable (to me) from regular whole wheat. One thing that has made my whole wheat bread less dense is to add vital wheat gluten. Tracy

    STS planned split? A thought

    I couldn't disagree more. I prefer the planned split. I especially like the shoulders with chest and back, since it is different from every other split workout I own. Tracy

    My DH is a sheep. He'll do whatever workout I'm doing, but if I don't workout, he won't either. Since Cathe is my favorite, she must be his too! He seems to enjoy himself anyway. Tracy

    Announcing STS - Cathe's Next Filming Project!

    STS sounds great! I wouldn't use the Workout Blender because the whole point to this series is that it is carefully designed to maximize our efforts. So any changes I would make in the workout would be less effective, right? Tracy
