So glad to hear you’re enjoying the Iron Series Angela! I just finished round two and plan to do it again this Fall.

I hope she does an Iron 2 or a full 12 week Iron Series.

I'd love an Iron 2 for a full 12 week program! If not, I'm sure I will repeat this to continue getting stronger!

Is her lifting pace reasonable? Is she heavy on the squats and lunges? I notice you mention them. I like squats and lunges, but my knee is complaining right now. Are there warmups?
I should clarify that I don't always use 20's for this particular exercise. The workout I used 20's for arnold press where kneeling and one side at a time. Tonight was all shoulders and I used 15's, 12's, 10's, and 8's. I used a 20lb. DB for one set of front raises.

You really don't need the calendar. Each week you do the first 3 workouts 3 days in a row, rest the 4th day, do the 4th workout, rest the 6th day, do the 5th workout. One of those days is deemed an active rest day. So say you start on Monday:
Monday: Workout 1
Tuesday: Workout 2
Wednesday Workout 3
Thursday: Rest
Friday Workout 4
Saturday: Active Rest
Sunday Workout 5
Monday: Workout 6, etc.....

I was gone on vacation for a few days so I did day 15 (the last workout of week 3 today) and I'll start week 4 tomorrow.

Tonight was all shoulders and I listned to her instructions at the beginning, which I often find helpful. She talke about no scrunching and relaxing the shoulders. It made me very aware and I'm amazed that my left shoulder is not causing me near as much trouble as it used to.
