    Thunder Thighs

    I'm short and have big, chunky thighs. (I'd say I'm a meso/endo build, definitely not small boned) I have done heavy weights and it made my thighs bigger. I know ppl will say that shouldn't happen, but it does on my body. Yes they are strong but at this point in my life, I want to not look...

    XTrain Rotations...which to do??

    I haven't used XTrain in awhile so would like to incorporate it into my next rotation.

    FIT SPLIT--SPLIT Rotation ??

    Hi Cathe I was hoping for a future rotation you could put together a rotation using only 1 of the workouts from each disc per day, ie. doing Boxing Bootcamp and Legs & Glutes on separate days? I like the idea of shorter workouts and with the Push and Pull days each containing some leg work I...

    A Feel the Burn Series??

    I would like something the total opposite of STS, more of a very high rep, low weight "Feel the Burn" series, but still a "shock training" so to speak. Something that leaves you quivering after using 1,3 or 5 lb weights for upper body and no weight or light ankle weights for lower body. Maybe...

    I wanted a longer step routine with basic choreography so I dusted off Step Jam! I haven't done this one in years. I used to do it all the time! I laughed at the Hand Jive in the warm up and the "Hill Billy" music and the Jazz hands in the cool down. It was the perfect workout today!! I...
