    Yes, yes they do seem impossible. You probably have to throw good form out the window if you are going for speed.

    Drmonroedvm asked the Question: What gets you motivated?

    I am on day 9 of the TBT workouts and am getting my butt kicked (in a good way!). My motivation to keep pushing through those reps is knowing how great I feel through the rest of my day. I also have a tasty chocolate protein shake waiting for me afterwards. What do you do to push yourself through those tough workouts?

    Drmonroedvm answered the Question: Inferno or TBT??

    I've been doing TBT and loving it. My goal is to get stronger and the varying levels for each exercise has been helpful in gauging my own body's fitness that day. Also, it IS nice to have workouts that require no equpiment, but you should pick what feels best for you.

    I've been using the daily burn tracker app. for my extra workouts. It's also super convenient to track nutrition. I'm mostly worried about having enough protein in my diet and the program does a great job in helping me track that.

    Get a support system set up. A significant other, best buddy, or co-worker you admire. Talk to them regularly and express some of your concerns or when you're feeling 'weak' and that you can't do it. It helps just to see that someone has your back. I am terrible with self-discipline and I found I pushed myself harder when I knew I had to 'report' to my friends. It is great to join gyms with friends, too. Know what your limits are, but don't make them a focus. In the end, you are what you put into it. Good luck and take it a day at a time, one change at a time. :)

    Grew up in an Italian household, so I feel your pain. I started to like the alternatives, slowly but surely. Wraps- delicious! Hummus as a snack with fresh veggies- my new fave! Quinoa was my new fave grain. I felt fuller with the new meals- lean meats, veggies. I still have my weak days where I have to make a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. But...they're few and far between now. You'll get through it and try looking forward to exploring NEW foods. That's half the fun.

    Drmonroedvm answered the Question: Why am I losing inches but not weight

    I've stopped weighing myself weekly because of feeling frustrated. I now only weigh myself once or twice a month and it's helped immensely in my psyche. I just started focusing on how strong I was getting and how each workout was going faster. Stay positive and know we all see "bad weeks". Stick with it and you know the results will shine through.

    I'm 5'4" and use 10# and found it to be perfect! 5# was just too light for some of the two handed swings/moves.

    I always thought it is based on the weight you enter in the beginning of the video. They can estimate your calorie burning by that and the estimated intensity of the workout.

    Watch them first, pause, then rewind until you feel comfortable. Don't push yourself unless you feel confident you're doing it right. I felt that way with the dance moves, but got better when I just replayed the moves I knew I wasn't doing right.

    When I first started Daily Burn last January, I was running 3-5x a week and started TBT to add strength training in. Because it's such explosive body weight exercises, I still ran, but just 1-2x a week. My poor legs could barely take a regular run after all the squats, lunges, and quad presses (the bane of my existence!). I still did the recovery days on the prescribed schedule, just a word of warning that you should just "listen to your body" and be aware it is working overtime with Cody Storey! :)

    Drmonroedvm answered the Question: How do you change the workout time limit?

    If you go to the discover section of the workouts tab, you should be able to select the filter for the timeframe you are looking for: under 20, 20-40 min, or 40+ min. I hope that's what you were asking!

    I use the Platinum edition Wheybolic extreme 60 chocolate or vanilla.

    Drmonroedvm answered the Question: Do you use the Daily Burn protien powder?

    I use different ones. Definitely agree with vanilla. It is a bit thick when you use 2 scoops which caught me off guard. I really love mixing it in a blender with frozen mixed berries when I'm craving something sweet. I also like a GNC protein shake a little better because its esily dissolvable compared to FUEL. Just my 2 cents.
