Having Trouble Fitting Into Your Jeans After the Holidays?

(Last Updated On: April 1, 2019)

shutterstock_25049155If you’re like me, right about now those joyous, calorie-filled holidays have left their mark…..darn butter cookies!!! And, in my case, while I refuse to step on a scale to see just what happened, I don’t really have to, as my jeans are already “squeezing in” on the matter at hand. That’s why this month I’ve decided to kick off the New Year’s resolutions with not one, but two rotations. Why Two? Well, let’s just say I’m super motivated, lol. Seriously though, I’ve designed two STS/LIS rotations (both highly effective) to not only burn off this holiday’s damage but to keep you committed without any guesswork. I’ve learned over time half the reason people give up on their New Year’s resolution (in less than a month of making it) is because they lack the commitment and knowledge it takes to get the job done. That’s where I step in with my two rotations:

1) STS/LIS Total Body Recharge…. a high intensity, metabolically stimulated fat loss rotation for the person who wants to torch off an excess of unwanted calories, recharge their fitness level and feel empowered as they do it. This rotation uses STS Total Body and therefore is well suited for those who prefer Total Body Workouts and/or do not own the complete STS Strength Training System

2) STS/LIS 3 Month Transformation Rotation….for the person who wants to get ignited in the same way they would as if doing the one month rotation, but is looking for that little extra something (a little extra edge, a little extra push) to get even more results from doing a more concentrated, undulating rotation. This longer-termed commitment will build ongoing results such as steady fat loss, solid strength gain, and superior metabolic conditioning.

Thinking about doing both rotations? Not a problem. You can do just the one month recharge rotation and then continue on afterwards with the 90 day transformation rotation. The key thing here is commitment. Remember, commitment is a muscle (wink) so start flexing!

  1. Thank you Cathe, this is fantastic. It takes the guess work out, so all we have to do is work! Onward and upward for 2012!!!!!!

  2. Cathe, when doing the 3 month undulating rotation, do we use the same 1RM percentage for each routine as we use when doing the standard STS rotation? In other words, how do we determine what weight load we should be using for each workout?

    Cool rotation, by the way! I’m looking forward to giving it a whirl!

  3. You should do the workout using the same weight as you would have used in the regular STS program. With undulating periodization workouts there really are no rules, you just want to mix things up as often as possible.

  4. i was so excited to get jans. download, then when i see it i have none of these dvds!!! got alot of cathes but none of these so what do i do now??? any suggestions??? ughhh thanks

  5. Thank you for the reply, Cathe. That will be a challenging rotation (and I’m looking forward to it!).

  6. Hi Cathe,

    Is there something we can substitute for LIS-Low Impact Challenge or Cycle Max that will have the same impact/calorie burn etc that you are going for? I do not have a cycle and would like an alternative to the step routine maybe another step routine and one non-step routine (some days my knees are just not up to it).

    Thanks
