    Newbie that previously followed Figure 8

    Hello there,

    I'm a 32 year old female that just recently started Figure 8 Fitness (Sorry if my English is bad).

    Thing is, I followed the routine religiously and had no problem with it, but for the second month, I needed resistance bands; which I bought, but I got scammed and they broke only one week after the original purchase .

    I can't do the second month routine because of it and I'm currently eager to keep on exercising as I've seen some results and I feel reaaaaaaaally good whenever I finish my daily workout routine. I've been exercising for 6 weeks straight following the program schedule with the Core Cardio routines, Upper and Lower body workouts, etc, which I loved.

    Could anyone help me with a program (30 days, 60 days, 90 days, 120 days...) that could help me keep strengthening my body? My legs are really strong now and I was just starting to get a bit of a curve in the arms. My belly is still soft though, and of course I'd love to get that flat, six-pack abs look that we all dream of. I'm not against working hard or for a long time to get it. I'm not looking for miracle results, just results, but I'm alone and I wouldn't know when to rest, when to dig deeper (Oh, yeah, I did Insanity 5 years ago before I got pregnant) or simply when to measure the progress I'm making.

    I'll be thankful to any help you might give me.

    ¬°Gracias!

    Look at the difficulty 2 or 3 programs here. 30 days if cardio blast + some core work, or maybe Athena, would be a good start imho.

      Thank you! I had been checking the 90 days of Action. I'll check the Athena

        Hi TiamatN and Welcome to the Hive
        A good place to start is the manual.
        Then the fitness test gives you an overall idea how you fit in the programs/workouts.
        And finally here is How to pick a program.

        There are 1400+ workouts in the database, but there is a filter to help you find the ones that suit your fitness level and what part of the body you want to train.
        Six pack abs are more a matter of starvation than fitness (body fat percentage <12%, better in the single digits)
        If you are happy, do not forget to show some love to the makers of this fine resource.
        Good luck and all the best
        Andi

          Hi Andi64, thank you.

          Yes, I've read the manual and the How to pick a program from top to bottom, I'm still a bit unsure as to which program to follow but will choose today.
          Also, the fitness test, how am I supposed to do that one?
          As many push-ups in 60 seconds, then as many sit-ups in 60 seconds and finally as many burpees in 60 seconds? or
          One push-up, one sit-up, one burpee and repeat in a loop until I reach 60 seconds? Because that didn't sound right...

          Thanks!

            TiamatN, WELCOME!!
            Yes, you do the push ups for 60 sec then the sit ups for 60 sec then the basic burpees (no push up) for 60 sec. All in a row, no rest. The built in timer makes it easy.

                DorothyMH , thank you!
                Just did the Fitness test and got Level 2 as a result, so, after checking the forum I decided to go for the Foundation.
                Can someone tell me if I should immediately go for the Level II on the workout sheet? Or I start on Level I and build up from there as the days go by?

                Sorry for so many questions, first time doing it all alone.

                Thanks!

                  TiamatN No worries, questions is how we learn. The program itself is a level II but within that you can go for a level I, II, or III depending on how you feel or what you are capable of or whatever.

                    Thank you, Azercord.

                    Then, I will try Level I and see if I can push up to the higher levels depending on how my muscles respond.
                    I'll try to keep track! I'm a newbie but I have lots of motivation.

                    Gracias!
