I had luck with BBL too. I did it in 2009 when I was just getting back into working out. Far less intense but I had a lot of fun. I then moved on to Butts & Guts. About 4 times a year I do a rotation with b&g 2 times a week and had great results. My booty isn't exactly how I want it but it's the best booty I have had in all my life and I am 38.Fit_mommy said:I have had success with freestyle type training for lower body using Cathe's endurance and floor work outs. It has definitely slimmed me down.
I've also had success with the Brazilian Butt Lift rotation. Not Cathe but it worked for me so I figured I would toss it out there.
I bow down to those who do B&G once a week for any length of time let alone TWO times a week! That work outs slays me!!! I admit I don't reach for it often. Probably exactly why I should do it more, huh?
Hi Natasha,Wendy (or anyone else who has done B&G)
I am new to Cathe's LB workouts, as I just got Gym Style Legs (and a few others for the Feb rotation). GSL just killed me. Mind you, I get worse DOMS from Afterburn for some reason. Any way, how do the two compare? Also LBB looks great and fun too. I like how Cathe puts in the blasts. Do I really need to have all 3 in my collection? Are they THAT different from one another???
I haven't done LBB yet, but I did buy it recently. I tend to get bored easily so the more the merrier. I will say B&G is TOUGH. It does have a bit of a dread factor because it is so tough. But my lower body is pretty firm. The first time I did Afterburn I had DOMS, but haven't had it since (have done it about 4 more times). I attribute that to B&G.
I have Gym Style and I did a rotation with that, the floorwork in Gym Style is harder than the floor work in B&G though. I wish you lived by me, I'd just let you borrow it to try it out first
Despite all my reading on fitness, I am still not clear on endurance work (B&G) versus heavier weights (gym style). All I know is that I easily add bulk to my lower body, so I try to stay away from heavy weights (I equate heavier weight to more muscle and I don't want to be bigger there.) Any comments from anyone on that approach???
