Getting results.... wish I knew from what!!

So I've had no less than 5 people comment over the summer how great my arms look! So I think I should keep up what I've been doing..... if only I knew what! In the past few months I've not stuck to a single monthly rotation or program but have been doing "whatever I feel like"! I've done some older Cathe workouts from the OnDemand service, most of the Cathe Live workouts with a little bit of Xtrain, HIIT and Step workouts thrown in to mix it up. I shoot for 2 days of full body lifting, two days of Hiit, two of cardio (either step or kickbox) and one day of "just because I like this workout" So I guess I'll keep going! Looking forward to Ripped w/ HiiT. I'm going to make myself stick to that one for a full rotation (whatever Cathe suggests with the new release!)

I think it's the whole philosophy Cathe believes in that is the secret of your success- variety! You keep your body guessing. :) I firmly believe in muscle confusion. I am completely and utterly anti-rotation, for myself. Not because I think they're innately ineffective or bad- quite the opposite. I just hate knowing I "have" to do something. I don't like structure to that degree. I have a goal to move every morning for about an hour (maybe more if I have time) and mostly, to enjoy what I do. Not that the workout is easy, but life is too short to do workouts that don't leave us feeling good and having some fun in the process. I prefer to go by what my body is telling me that day, put in an appropriate DVD or On Demand workout, and give it my all. I always know when I need to give a body part some rest, or when I've slacked off on it a bit too much and need a shove.

I just try to focus on hitting every body part nicely at least once a week with heavier weights and some movements from different angles, a higher-rep weights+cardio workout that's more total body-focused once or twice a week, and completing three solid cardio routines a week. I also add more stretching, an extra core routine or floorwork in if I need it. Sometimes I'll grab a Dyna-band or resistance tube and do a few sets when I need an afternoon/evening pick-me-up, but that's more to increase energy or take a fitness-based break from studying. I enjoy it. It all adds up!

Did you end up doing the RWH rotation?
