Carter - I agree on the lunges. I hate them so much!! My legs feel like jello at the end. I also hate the ab exercise the "jackknife" in Workout A stage 1.

Silverfire - If you still haven't crossed the threshold yet you should do a "mock" workout at home. Go through the motions of all of the exercises, then that way you might feel more confident going into the area with all the buff guys. What I found most intimidating was that I didn't know how or where to start, but after doing each workout once I feel like knew exactly what I was doing.

I am nearing the end of Stage 1. I have 4 workouts left to do but I have to travel next week. so I haven't figured out what I am going to do yet. I might try to workout at hotels. If that isn't possible I might take a break for a week, then finish Stage 1 and move right to Stage 2 without taking a break between the stages.

How do you translate what you read in the books or see on a video into the gym? In other words, I'm not going to walk amongst the weights with a book in my hand; but I get in there and I forget everything I've read.

Hi Mad--I am constantly referring to my book throughout my workouts. I would just bring the book and not worry about it.

OK -- I'll bite. I'm going to try to find the book today. I'm starting Week 8 of Couch25K (Hi Silverfire & Rated!)and need another challenge so New Rules sounds like something I'd like. I'm already doing 2 weekly strength training classes with free weights, so I'm interested to see where I'd start with this program. I love the results I've had with what I'm currently doing, and look forward to learning a new independent routine. Off to the bookstore....

Hi all can I join in? I bought the book and did my first workout yesterday. The only thing I didn't do quite to spec was the seated lat cable exercise there was a huge crowd of beefy dudes all over those machines alternating so I used another lat pull machine for the time being. Oh and I used dumbells for the squats, too I should just ask the guys to help me.

I had been doing the weight machines for several weeks and I am not sore at all so I can definitely up the weights next time. And I have been doing Pilates which is a huge help for push-ups with the plank work and those jackknifes on the ball boy those are great.

I am pleased though! I think I can work through this. Anybody doing it at home? I have spent the winter in Florida but will be going back north in a few weeks and there I have quite a few weights including the ones my sons used in high school with the bar and I'd like to just do them there.

Hello AwShucks!

I love having the program since I find I am less likely to skip if every thing is scheduled and laid out for me. I do my new rules workouts 3 times a week on alternate days of C25k.

I am doing the program at home. sometimes I have to do modified exercises but most of the time I can follow the program exactly

I am on stage 2 now (taking a weak off for spring break) and I have gone from being unable to even hold myself in pushup position to now being able to do proper push ups. Never before in my life have I been capable of a pushup so I love this book!
