Dear tslop49 and catwoman,
thanks for your warm welcomes, great to join this group of fellow Cathletes! I have really craved a place where I can rave about how great you feel this morning as you did that and that w/o, but you just can't really do that with people who don't know anything about a good Cathe workout
. Not to speak being able to compare the different workouts etc
And I am really waiting to learn more about both your experiences with weight workouts. I've been bit of a cardio junkie (well, lately I've been really into circuit and metabolic workouts, they just give such an amazing feel that you've really worked your whole body) - but all in all now I really want to put more emphasis on weights as well.
Here's my thing with weights I suppose: doing upper body just doesn't always give that feeling of having done a thorough workout. Maybe I'm just too impatient... maybe I should really try to think of it as training focus as much as muscle..., which I suppose it is about anyway.
But while getting there I was thinking of trying something like RWH upper body circuit, though I don't know if you can really count that as proper weight work if I would really like to see results. I think so far one of my favorites has been Pyramid Upper Body, straight forward enough I suppose ;/). (For now I'm still healing from a slight shoulder injury too, can't lift heavy with my other arm which makes me think I don't want to start something like an STS rotation yet).
With legs again, I just feel like I get such a great leg workout with something like Body Max or some of the other circuit workouts combining blasts and some leg work.
So my question - what workouts that have some cardio element do you feel like you've gotten strength/toning benefits from as well? Or how do you feel the total body weight workouts compare to doing single muscle groups at a time? Or perhaps I should try going for one muscle group per day, which would allow to include some cardio elements oa...? Greatful for any suggestions!
Toady I think I will try ICE Bootcamp (never tried it yet), and add the biceps as that one I missed last week
Have a great week everyone!
