I am thinking of getting one once it is in stock again, but any experience or user rating of it would be much appreciated. Thanks!
I would really like a way to have the website ask me: "Did you follow the nutrition plan today?" If I did this for a certain number of days or weeks, I could get points or a badge. I really like the nutrition plan and it works better for me than calorie counting. But to be able to visualize how long I have been faithful to the plan would help motivate me to not have a Pop Tart (my kryptonite).
I personally would like to be able to have my rank/see the rank of other community members. That way you can compare with your friends and compete to reach the next level first. If this already exists, I am not seeing it. I am also motivated by seeing people that have already reached high levels and know that I can trust their advice on topics.
I am 5'8 and 123 pounds. One thing that disappoints me sometimes with fitness websites is that they focus on losing weight rather than helping you monitor the quality of that weight and fitness level. I would really like a way to monitor body fat %, maybe not everyday but once a week or once a month. I would also like to see a way to monitor resting heart rate overtime. I am sure that is bound to improve with all the aerobic fitness required in the workouts.
I know that all of these workouts can be done with or without the suggested equipment, but I am wondering what the best starter weight would be for a woman of fair to above average fitness level in the categories of medicine balls, free weights, kettlebells, etc for these workouts? That way, you can purchase one weight and once you easily complete with that weight, you can move up a level.
So, I personally prefer the chocolate and we go through about 4 tubs of choco to one vanilla in this house. I have had several relatives visit and they also loved the chocolate. I think it is pretty versatile, too. You can use banana, almond butter, strawberries in the choco are good and so are raspberries. I also sometimes mix a pack of starbucks instant coffee to make it a mocha. And you can do coconut milk and it tastes like an almond joy.
It may be that you need to have a little snack before your workout. I sometimes have a handful of nuts and an apple or a glass of chocolate milk...something with a little carb and protein. I find if I don't hydrate and have just a little fuel in my system, I will get tired. You could even get some of those little Cliff electrolyte cubes or gels. I think it is also just fine to anticipate giving yourself a few breaks along the way. When I did the TBT one workout had 20 rounds and I would give myself the option of taking a little pause if I just got through 3, then 4, then 5, etc. You can build yourself up slowly that way without quitting. Good Luck!
Yes, Yes, Yes!!! Ballet and Pilates!!!!!
Me, too!!! I would really love this!!!
Weightlifting. If you go to a gym, try adding bench press into your weekly plan. Don't go light. Pick out what you think you can lift and then add 5 pounds. Work up to 3 sets of 12, when you can do that, then go up 5 pounds. If you don't have a gym membership, maybe invest in some tubing or some adjustable dumbbells like power blocks. They are well worth it.
I actually love this shake mix. I have had shakes for breakfast for about the past 5 years and have tried it all (Myoplex, Protein Plus, Vega, etc). I really love this shake mix and honestly it is not that expensive compared to these others and the shipping is very good. I was afraid this would taste like Vega which is awful, but it actually tastes just like a great whey shake but without the whey.
I don't have an answer, but I also have this question! I work out every day with Daily Burn AND do two pilates classes and a one day a week weights workout. Mine also started me with 10 and I want 15 points.
