    Let me start by saying that I have been doing cardio workouts, and every other workout known to man for the past 3 months. So, the BFL book suggests that high intensity cardio training is working at 75% of max heart rate. For me that's 132 bpm. For me that's not hard enough. I don't feel...

  • Forum Post: Frozen Shoulder?

    Does anyone have any remedies for frozen shoulder? I've tried ice, heat, ultrasound, physio, stretches and as my last resort I'm going for a cortisone shot tomorrow. It hasn't stopped me from working out but has restricted my shoulder exercises to pushups and holding the plank position only...

  • Forum Post: Re: Kicking Off 2011 WIth A Bang!!! Anyone Coming Along?!?!?

    Hey crew, I finally got around to taking pictures today to see if there was any differences to be seen yet. I said before I'd only lost about 2lbs and a few inches and was a little disheartened. Well the pics seem to match the rest with very little noticeable change so I dug around on the BFL...
