Supreme 90 Fitness DVDs

Gwen asked this question Mar 20th, 2011 2:11 pm

Hello-
I'm waiting on my dvds to arrive but I have a few questions for the ppl who have already started on the program. For the women, do the workouts buff you up too much in the upper body region? Do you think it's better to use lighter weights for the upper body (to lessen bulk) and heavier for the lower body? Also, are yoga and/or pilates incorporated at all? Is it too much cardio? Overall, do you like it?

Thanks

I'm a guy but I don't think the program will buff you up top if you are just doing this program. Females by nature have some additional fat cells on top and the 20-25 minute upper exercises are too short to get the average female buff, plus as there 10 variations of exercises so if you think your getting a little too bulky just swap in an another exercise on another section of the body. I'm not an expert but for the most part the cardio works the whole of the body versus one section so you can never have too much cardio (if reasonably fit) - in the first week I only really struggled on the Tabata Inferno but not to the point of giving up. Just follow the program - their diet guidance is common sense (high protein and natural carbs v processed carbs) but a little restrictive. I have no complaints going into the 2nd week and have lost 5lbs in week one.

I'm looking to order these DVDs too but the rule of thumb for women to keep from bulking up too much is to use lighter weights and more reps. It looks like they use 10-15 lb weights in some of the exercises I saw so I would suggest maybe keeping it under 10, maybe no more than 8.

Ummm... from what I know about being a woman is that we do not have the testosterone to "bulk up"
The perception that women will bulk up when they begin a strength training program comes from the chemically-altered women on the covers of bodybuilding magazines. These “grocery stand models” are most likely pumped full of some extra juice. This is why they look like men. If you take the missing link that separates men from women and add it back in, what do you have? A man!
