    Congrats on athena playbook

    Comment


      Thanks, Scohui

      And you'll probably don't believe me, but I actually dislike cardio I only came to like 60 DoC because I felt an actual progression in my endurance and Cardio Go because it was kind of meditating. But aside from that... nope, don't like cardio.

      I want to do Ironborn and Xpress Tone, I have a set of adjustable dumbbells, but I wanted to save those until I'm done with my cut and get started with building 'real' muscle. I just have to decide which to do first. Opinions?

          Well, Ironborn is about doing a "small" number of reps with a bigger weight, while Xpress tone is about doing as much as you can with a reasonably smaller weight, so maybe Xpress Tone? Not sure. I started out with Ironborn with a small weight (there was no Xpress Tone at the time anyway)

            Congratulations Nihopaloa on persevering and completing Athena's Playbook. It is not easy to keep going when the motivation just isn't there. Well done. !

              Thank you, Julian4077 It probably worked in my favour that I thought of a lot of days as being fairly easy (and did the rest on Level 1, heh)

                Tbh, I once did Ironborn to about three-fourths or something, and Xpress Tone to maybe a third. Xpress Tone has a lot of sets, which can take a long time at days, while Ironborn takes a lot of time, anyways. Still unsure. Thankfully, I have a few weeks until have to decide.

                  Congrats on completing Athena's Playbook! I've had a similar impression when I've looked it over... I'll probably do it some day but I don't feel that enthusiastic about that one.

                  Scohui I LOVED Ironborn (I know I say that like so often you guys but still lol) it was really enjoyable. I can't wait to do express tone, it's definitely one of my next ones, just trying to decide when (cause I might do yoga first for the sake of my foot, or spellbound it it's not a hard one).

                    Ironborn is hands down my favourite program. I think I just like lifting heavier weights, though. I found it hard to choose the right weights for Xpress Tone, there wasn't time to change mid-set, so for some exercises the weights were way too light.

                      I know what you mean about the Splits Challenge, those leg raises are really becoming a chore... I plan to keep repeating the challenge, but definitely only the actual side splits part.

                      If it's any help, I enjoyed Ironborn a lot, despite the fact that I am a cardio person.

                      And of course congrats on Athena's!

                              I used to like listening to Bon Jovi, too. And I wonder if we share a guilty pleasure when it comes to writing...
                              Maybe we should compare notes, unless it's written in anything other than English as I'm monolingual

                              Congratulations on Athena's, and yay for finishing half jacks tomorrow. I'm only on day 10 of Zero and already can't wait for it to be done.
                              We've had a small respite in the weather too, the last 2 days have been noticeably cooler
