Done with Meso 2 - anyone else?

Just finished last disk in meso 2 this morning - WOW, bicep moves were killer. Definitely working for those tickets to the gun show ;-)

I am looking forward to meso 3, but a little scared of those plyo leg moves! I want to get a squat rack, but haven't yet, so I am going the plyo route this time around.

After going through meso 1 and meso 2, I think I might go for a six month rotation the next time around. I think doing the extra week of each week's workouts will increase my strength even more (guess that goes without saying, but in finishing meso 2, I think I could definitely use a little more time in this section in particular).

How did everyone else do in meso 2? Anyone skeered for meso 3 like me?! ;-) In a good way, but of course!!

Not yet! Two more discs to go! DH and I are SO looking forward to our rest week next week. We are also excited about the updates to the Workout Manager. It will be so easy to update our 1RMs. :)

I'm almost done. I only have back and bi left. I also think the next time around I will do a 6 month rotation. What surprised me about M2 is the amount of weight that I was able to handle. Especially during the last week of M2 (80% 1RM).

Oh yes I'm skaaared of M3 also.:confused:

Did you read the thread about using a good quality back pack filled with weights to do squats? I may buy an Elmo bookbag.
 

looking good

I am done...just finished disc 24 a little while ago and my arms are still shaking :p its a good thing :D. Looking forward to rest week but excited to start Mesco 3. I am going to test next week what I can get over my head on the barbell safely and then use the weight vest as well for the legs. I been doing Plyo legs as a second cardio since Mesco 2 and going lighter on the weights. Depending how my legs feel doing Mesco 3 will determine whether my legs will the energy to do Plyo legs to in the same week :eek:.

I too will do STS over and this time I will also do a six month version.

Just want to give a shout out to CATHE and say THANK YOU for STS :D

That's a great idea! I want to do the heavy weights for squats, will have to see what my 1RMs look like for that....hmm.

I finished disc 24 last night. It was a great workout. I absolutely have loved Meso 1 and 2. I am looking forward to going on to Meso 3 after a rest week. I think I will rest one week after Meso 3, then do it all over again. I am hoping to be able to do that two times.

I have seen significant strength gains already, before getting to Meso 3!!!

M2 completed this morning. I feel like such a weakling when doing biceps. My heaviest weight is 25 lbs, I tried to start with 30 but could only do about 5 with good form. I am looking for to the recovery week.

I'm thinking about the 6-monther next time but wondering how others that are currently doing the 6-month version are feeling? Do you like doing every workout twice? Do you feel like you are seeing good/better results? I too, am sad, that I'm about to start the last mesocycle, I love this workout!
