Oh how I wish I'd kept this up. I ended up doing these workouts for about three months and combined with a "low carb" diet lost about 40 lbs by summer of 2007. Then for some dumb reason I stopped both of them. Here I am a year and a half later and not only have I gained the 40 back but also put on a...

I moved closer (1.25 miles away) to where I work also to try and get myself out walking more. Now that its...

Greetings, questions

Hello, I'm a fat slob looking to start paying attention to fitness. A friend of mine sent me a link to this page and I thought I'd give it a shot for a month and see how I feel. I've got some questions about the workouts (i.e. the info on this page http://www.simplefit.org/workouts.html) ... 1. Pull...
