Debbie, AMAZING, Love it. I already started your muscle building and definiion rotation I'm on day three. i did chest Saturday, Back and cardio sunday. How can I switch to this rotation? I Know I'm a pain. Thanks so much for your hard work. Lori
 
Melody, just start it up doing a different body part than what you already worked and then follow it correctly the next week. So since you worked chest and back already, pick it up with Day 2 then do Day 4, then do Day 5 etc.

Thanks Debbie.
The generic portion works great for me. This may be my July rotation as I am in the middle of a rotation right now.

WOW! This is an AMAZING, well planned out body part program! You amaze me every month ;-0

Can't wait to start this next week! I continued on back to week one of last month's, results keep coming! You sure know how to shock the body w/ your rotations!

You are the best at this,gf!


Thanks soo much for putting your time and expertise into these!
 
Your welcome Delphene! I'm glad you like my rotations. Sometimes its hard doing these because everyone wants something different. Take care and keep up the great work!

Debbie,
this looks great! I'm sad I'm doing a different rotation:( but I bookmarked this. I love your rotations and look forward to them
Thank you
Deanie:)

PS A ?- You are doing an hour of cardio 3 days a week in this rotation, the rotation I'm doing now I'm trying to do an hour of cardio 4 days a week, each week using a different series(PS,GS,S&H,Pyramids) with the last week circuits only.(from the "any strength mish moshes" in this forum topic). What is the difference if I only do an hour of cardio 3 days a week? ( I notice Cathe also only does cardio 3 days a week in her march 06 rotation.)My goal is definition and shock my body. I've done muscle end.,get ready for summer, and circuit rotations the last 3 or so months.) Is an hour 4 days a week and weight lifting overkill?
 
Deanie,
I find when I do a lot of cardio my metabolism slows down. When this happens I know its time to lower my cardio and up the weight training, which is what I'm doing now. You need to change it up every once in a while to shock the body so if you find that you are in a rut and can't lose body fat or weight, I'd slow down on the cardio a bit. It also depends on your body. Some people respond well with tons of cardio while others, like myself, respond better to less cardio and more weight training.

Thanks Debbie,
I think my body also responds better to less cardio. I did the Jan. rotation of Cathes and saw no results. I finished up writing up my rotation this month only doing 3ish hours a week of cardio, just more intense. I even posted it!!:) Thanks for your help.
Deanie:)

HI Debbie:)
Would this rotation be good after your circuit mix rotation or would you recommend one with less cardio?

Cathlete
Hi Debbie,what would you recommend as a replacement for the CTXs in this rotation?I don't own them.

Thanks Karen
 
Hmmm, maybe use the body parts from Muscle Max. You could also just do the Gym Style section only, that alone is an excellent workout. I just like adding on because its fun doing two seperate workouts back to back.

Hi Debbie,thanks for replying so quickly.I decided to use the first part of S&H.3 sets of bench presses and 3 sets of flyes.I did two sets flat,two incline and two decline.Wow! were my pecs ever crying.:D

Debbie~
Thanks for sharing your rotation.:) I was going to do the Slow & Heavy rotation in July but you just changed my mind.;-)

I don't have the PS series, so could you suggest a sub for week 2? I'm thinking I really "need" to get them as this is the second rotation that they were in. Maybe it's a sign??? :p
