Here's a look back at the workouts I've done since my last workout recap (here). This past week I moved on to Mesocycle 2 of Cathe's STS series and made several modifications as noted below.

Notes and Modifications:
The running time for my Wednesday workout DVD is 65 minutes, and that's longer than I prefer for weights. I cut the chest work in half and also fast forwarded through a portion of the rest sections throughout the workout (e.g. I would skip forward until there were 20 seconds of rest remaining then go from there). Cathe specifically talks about the importance of taking the full one minute rest (during one of the rest segments, naturally), but in the interest of time I just go by how I feel. If I feel rested and ready for another set, I do it. If I feel I need the full minute, then I take it.
On Friday's back workout Cathe did deadlifts, and I skipped those since I had just done them in my Thursday Lower Body blast workout and didn't want to do them two days in a row. On Saturday's ab workout, Amy does some lower back training and I subbed in some weighted crunches on a stability ball instead since I had just worked my back the day prior and didn't want to do it again.
Also, as I mentioned in my equipment breakdown (in this post), I don't have a barbell and plates, so any time Cathe used that in any of the workouts I modified with dumbbells.

Short and sweet today, but have a great rest of your weekend and thanks for reading!
