I am late starting these workouts because I was waiting for the rotation to be available in the Workout Manager, but the thing I was most curious about was how combining the loop with the dumbbells was going to feel. Wow. It makes quite a difference, especially on those external rotation things. I started out with 6 pounds for the first two supersets (using the 6 pounders for the side lateral raise as well) but had to drop to 5 for the last set. Even then I barely made it. It is so fun to find new challenges! This is one of the (many) reasons I love Cathe and her workouts: always something different to work toward.I did the Pull segment tonight. The bands really upped the intensity of the workout. I also found the ball segment at the end for hamstrings was very, very tough. My hamstrings and calfs were on fire. I know I need to do more calf work, so this was greatly appreciated.
did this one yesterday. I was glad the cardio wasn't too hard because the weight work in these workouts is tough, and I don't usually lift as heavy as Cathe. I don't find these workouts "intermediate" though, as some other super rugged Cathletes do, and I can do all of Cathe's super hard cardio workouts without taking a break (though I do modify the step height on a couple of exercises in Plyo Hit 2 because I'm so clumsy). For me, these are totally "advanced" workouts and I have the muscle soreness to prove it.
