Re: Newb

Thanks, Kevin. I've just gotten serious about my fitness program, but as you know it takes time. Some of those workouts look pretty tough-I may have to work my way up to them. Right now, I'm doing cardio (heavy bag, running or mountain bike) 6 days a week, and weights every other day. At 46, it seems progress is a bit slower than it used to be, but I'm getting there

Brandx Scaled workouts. You get ready for CF by doing CF.

Definitely do work up to them. Its easy to fry yourself and be put off the program entirely. Jamie's advice is the best anyone can give you. There's no shame in starting at the B'cup or Puppy level, and they'll allow you a long consistent ramp up to where you want to be. I started when I was 50, and I plan to be still at it when I'm 60, 70 and beyond. So, no need to rush!

Re: Newb

Agreed. You don't need to build up to anything, BrandX (W/F/S) has scaled workouts that any healthy human can complete.

There's no time like the present! So head over to the Workout Logs (W/F/S) section and get started!
