My workout yesterday was 35 minutes on the elliptical + STS 2.0 Mobility workout #1.

T2B - Thanks for starting a new thread for December. As usual I totally forgot!

Karjoy - Glad you are enjoying some cooler weather. We are getting down to the 20s at night but warming up some during the day so it's pretty nice.

Waves to Vannie, Cher and Gibbee.

Thanks for starting us off T2B! Of course I searched for the November check in. Duh…

I went to Burn for Metabolic Conditioning today after work. What a great class. It was all low impact except one exercise but it was intense enough that I got my heart rate up into the 160s. Ouch.

Jbliff I’m sorta glad you forgot about a new month too. Great minds here!

T2B what a great workout today. I hope you carried those endorphins all day.

Waves to all.

My workout yesterday was RESE as a sub for Xtrain Hard Strikes + 10 minutes of isometric core work from Caroline Girvan on Youtube + 15 minutes of yoga on my own.

Karjoy - That sounds like a good workout.

T2B - I noticed one thing with STS 2.0 is that Cathe has pretty much gone away with adding core to her rotations.

Waves to everyone. Have a great day.

I tried posting a few times yesterday but I kept getting “the server is too busy at the moment” message. I type in Pages, and then paste, so here’s my post from 12/02/23:

This morning was ICE: Rock’em Sock’em Premix #6 Punching Combos, 24mins x2. I did the combos twice so the workout ended up being 34mins. Perfect!

I really like the clip of Cathe’s spin workout. I've been researching spin bikes and I really like the Schwinn IC3 or IC4 spin bike, still searching for a great sale.

Karen - sounds like a great workout. Is Burn a huge gym or more like a boutique gym in a strip mall? I’ve seen an Orange Theory here, it’s in an expensive retail area/neighborhood.

JB Hi!. Maybe Cathe thought the STS 2.0 the workouts would be too long with added core.

Yesterday I ran 30 minutes on the treadmill which wasn’t bad since it poured rain all day. And most of the night. Actually, I have a friend who is training for
an Ultra and she wanted to run at 0700 this morning so I had planned to join her but it was still raining heavily at 0630. I guess it is treadmill again. My DH said it had stormed some too.

Burn is a nationwide franchise but I don’t know how many locations there are total. I did OT for a while and liked it but I think you don’t get quite enough weight work. One friend went to OT for 4 years and liked it but did not see much change in her muscle size so she switched to Burn and likes it better she said. Plus there is a huge emphasis in working in small groups which build camaraderie.

T2B my friend Chris who does Cathe belongs to a local gym with Spin bikes and does Cathe spin vids there from her phone on one of their bikes. I don’t have room for a Spin bike with a treadmill.


Jbliff I think T2B is right. Adding core to STS 2 might make them too long for some people.


Gibbee, Vannie, and Cher where are you?

My workout yesterday was STS 2.0 Total Body Giant Sets + a walk with DH in the morning. I am definitely gaining strength as 25# DBs are feeling much lighter.

T2B - That's pretty funny we both did ICE RESE this week. Even though Cathe's new kickboxing clip didn't wow me, I really hope I like it better once I do it. Did you get Cathe's new spin workout?

Karjoy - I'm actually only doing core work once or twice a month now. A lot of Cathe's workouts include functional core movements so I don't think we need to do targeted core work anymore.

Waves to all. Have a great Sunday.

Today I did XTRAIN: Super Cuts Premix #4 (no sit-ups, no push-ups) + Core 2, 54mins. Tomorrow will be a rest day.

Karjoy - Do you listen to music when you’re using the treadmill? Burn sounds like it could be fun. There's a Planet Fitness close to my new job site, I may try it in the Spring. IIRC, there’s a monthly fee and no contract.

JB - I bought Cathe’s new spin workout. That's impressive that your 25#ers are feeling light.

Waves~~~
