I'm amazed at myself--I am about to finish week 4 of this rotation. I have never made it past 3 weeks on a rotation. I really believe I will do the whole thing now!

I am really enjoying this, too. Just puts me in a good mood to pop in a FIRM.

I skipped one day and had to play catch up, and then this week I did swap The Hare for Cardio Step Mix, but I added on The Hare's weight work at the end.

Loving this, feeling strong!

I honestly was in the best shape of my life after completing this rotation. Good luck with it!!

Well, my surgery recovery time is over. I think I should give it a go again, but slowly. Maybe I'll do every other one or something like that...

I have come to the conclusion that I'm just not a rotation kind of girl. Or, if I am, they have to be short rotations. I did complete four weeks of the rotation and then fizzled out.

I'd really love to say I did this, to have that sense of pride, but I just don't have the discipline. That and I have too many other workouts that start calling my name.

The bottom line is no matter what I'm doing, I always do Firms--every week, so it's not as if I'm turning my back on them. They are my absolute favorites.

How is your recovery going from the surgery?

Totally get that! Hard to go with the preplanned for too long when sometimes one just feels like doing...this one...today.

Ginger, hope you are feeling better, hugs!!

Jo, I do better with shorter 30 day rotations. But like you Jo I like to mix it up.

Ginger - how are you now?

Jo - The Firm 90 Day Rotation is tough. I believe when it first came out that Anna said you should work backwards to the beginning and go from higher intestity back to lower. The last month of that rotation is killer! You should be proud that you got through the 4 weeks. Perhaps you could do 4 weeks on your own and then do the next 4 weeks? It might be more "doable" if you break it up that way.

I'm on a Firm lovefest right now. I'm finally getting consistent with my workouts, but they have to be Firm, Tracie Long, or Bar Method (mostly Firm). I'm trying out a system where I do at least 3 Firm workouts a week (up to 4) and go as heavy as I possibly can. I'll sub in a Tracie workout here and there and have up to 2 Bar Method workouts per week (mostly 1). I'd like to be able to fit back into my old clothes, but I'm not sure how much weight I'd need to lose to do that. I don't own a scale. Will keep you all posted on my progress!
