Thank you for asking here on the forum!!!
Which one of your series do you recommend to prepare for STS 2.0?
How many rest days will be in the rotation ?
What cardio complements STS 2.0?
What research most helped you develop this series?
Is this series similar to Xtrain?
Will you be able to make premixes that switch exercises between the two upper and two lower DVDs?
Can we buy an extra DVD case holder to use with another one of your sets?? I LOVE IT!!
There is no series needed to help you prepare for STS 2.0. This is a stand alone workout program that all fitness levels will benefit from. As long as you select a weight that challenges you for 8 reps for all of your exercises you will see great results.
We will provide many rotations that will have various rest days. Rest days are not the same as recovery days. Rest days are days not spent exercising. Recovery days are days spent doing dialed down exercises and stretches to promote healing and recovery.
For cardio … you will do your own form of cardio (for however long or short of a duration per workout) for however many days per week you wish. Everybody has different goals. If you want to build more muscle mass then less cardio per week is better. I personally think 2 to 4 times per week for 20 to 30 minute duration per workout is ideal. Remember your leg workouts are very cardio intensive. And on the total body workouts you will also experience quite a cardio effect. So factor that into your cardio per week. Every “body” responds a little differently to weight training. So it is only natural there will be a little experimentation in the beginning to find the ideal amount of cardio for you.
The research lies in the basic principles of traditional strength training along with classic intensity building techniques such as drop sets, paused reps, finisher sets etc.
As mentioned above STS 2.0 is a stand alone workout series that isn’t really comparable to another series I’ve done.
Each solid upper and solid lower body workout is on its own disc so there is no premix option that will combine upper and lower from these workouts. However Upper/lower premix options are possible on the total body workouts since there are upper and lower body exercises on one disc.
We are not selling the DVD case separately.
I think I answered everything
