    Happy Badge/Challenge Day!

    Comment


      Congrats on Baseline and the challenge.
      I was curious about the design of the Baseline badge although I sort of guessed it.

        Congrats

        What was the Baseline program like?

          Fremen, I was trying to elaborate on it as I went, but, I guess will summarize more, here😜
          It was much more challenging than I expected. More difficult than Foundation or Foundation Light. I only did mega sets the first TWO DAYS!! After that, the upper body/ shoulder exercises ramped up quickly and were VERY effective. There was never any floor work, so no crunches. But, they substituted hip rotations, forward bends and torso rotations, which were ALSO amazingly effective. I was rarely able to add my extra bar work to this because they successfully burned out my shoulders and arms several times a week. Particularly as the reps went up. Reps were capped at 40, which was manageable. But, VERY effective (again) at getting me to fatigue. Overall, I liked it and would recommend it on its own with little/few additional add-on challenges. All I added was the 1-Minute Cardio, this month.

            DorothyMH Wow thank you so much for your review on Baseline! I will have to give it a try in the future! I thought it would be easier than Foundation.

                  Thanks DorothyMH for the review
                  I realized that it is very different to ask someone who has done a program or simply read the explanation or take a look at the exercises, simply browsing the program you do not notice how many exercises there are actually for the upper body.

                          Fremen, now that the Feb Challenge is out, those are the some of the arm exercises in BaseLine, with the high reps. Over a certain number, they start to seriously burn😝They had standing W-extensions and chest expansions also. Along with all possible low impact variations of jumping jacks for more arm flailing!😜🥴
