  • Forum Post: Hi Point Weight Fluctuation

    Hi Everyone, I noticed in Bill Philips' book that when it is time to reach level 9, he substantially decreases the weight, then decreases it again for level 10. My questions are: 1- Is this a coincidence or this is how it should be? 2- What happens if I increase the weight at level 9 then...
  • Forum Post: Chest and Shoulders Stretching Exercises for fellow beginners

    I wasn't aware that we were supposed to use the same weight used at level 7 for level 9 repetitions ( I asked and a fellow BFLers told me on here). I hit the gym yesterday doing as told and I was terribly sore. I was not aware there are any chest stretch exercises. But today I felt my chest muscles...
  • Forum Post: HIIT Swimming Routine?

    I am currently injured - stress fracture on my ankle - and can only bike and swim for cardio. I am starting BFL tomorrow (wish me luck!) and was wondering if anyone has done a swimming HIIT routine.... I am not sure how to do HIIT in the pool (and p.s. I am not a very strong swimmer). Anyway, any advice...
  • Forum Post: Do weights trump cardio?

  • Forum Post: Lifting Weights - Toning vs Gaining Muscle Question

    I've always been naturually strong for a girl and I have a pretty big build without my added fat weight. I am looking to tone muscle instead of gain, but I'm only on week 2 and lifting large amounts of weight. Do I keep my my weights the same, because I don't think I will hit my 10 if I keep...
  • Forum Post: New to BFL and slightly confused on weights/sets/reps

    Hello all: I am new to BFL; just started day 1 today and I'm excited about the challenge. I'm not necessarily "new" to the gym, but I've never been consistent. I understand the set/rep/intensity schedule, but I'm a little confused if I should be selecting a single weight...
  • Forum Post: Same Exercise?

    This question if for the BFL veterns. For the duration of BLF, do you do the same exercise every time? For example, on the upper body days for the chest muscle group, do you do dumbbell bench press for the first 5 sets, then dumbbell flye for the last intense set, every time you do an upper body day...
