I think I'll do this for Feb. Thanks for the idea
How are you combining them with STS Meso 3? I have started doing a rotation, each week changing from body weight & very hi reps; lite weights & hi reps; medium weight & moderate reps; heavy weight & low reps. I am using EB for moderate weight & moderate rep workout as she moves to fast for me to go heavy. Planning to use Meso 3 for the heavy workout.

To make it easier on my body and flexibility with time available, my upper & lower workouts are not both on the same part of the cycle the same week, i.e. not doing heavy on both upper & lower the same week.

I agree with the above posters. EBE2 is 4 cycles through each exercise. If you can handle it it's a killer workout. But I like variety too much so I have mine for trade.

I like variety too. My game plan is to do the Cathe/EBE2 for two weeks then use Linda Wooldridge Interval Fusion or other barre type of workouts for a week and then go back to the Cathe/EBE2 routine. Then keep rotating 2 weeks/1 week until I feel like doing something else!

week 1
EBE 2 weighted upper body and 30 min hiit workout.
STS pylo legs (consider this cardio)
STS upper body day 1 MESO 3 week 1
EBE 2 weighted legs
STS upper body day 2 MESO 3 week 2
EBE 2 weighted glutes and 30 min hiit and deep stretch yoga every weekend because I'm almost 46

week 2

EBE 2 pylo upper body and 30 min hiit
STS squat legs
STS upper body MEso 3 week 2
STS pylo leg
STS upper body Meso 3 week 2
EBE weighted glutes and yoga

Week 3

EBE 2 weighted upper body
EBE 2 weighted legs
To the max
EBE 2 pylo upper body
EBE 2 pylo legs
yoga

Week 4 - 6 repeat 3 more weeks with MESO 3 weeks 3 and 4 . I got this far and was loving the result. My body felt tight and strong.

I've only had time for a few total body metabolic stuff each for the past month but have been going heavy. I did Cathe old boot camp but went heavy and stuff like that to keep my muscle and cardio up.

I'm hoping to start building again.

Thanks Cafelattee! I love looking at other people's rotation & reading their feedback on them. I am going to printout yours and probably use some of your experience in mine.

Is EBE 2 chaptered? If I only wanted to do 2 sets instead of 4 is it doable? Thanks!

For lower body I'll alternate the Leg and Glute from EBE2 each week and I'll do the cardio/metabolic/kickbox workouts from ICE. Since I'm trying to incorporate more yoga and floor work I'm going to fit that in somewhere too! My floor work is usually Cathe, TA, Tonique or Linda Wooldridge.

Hoping for consistency since I'll be doing things with no dread factor!
I've been using EBE2 since mid-December. I loosely follow the rotation but I sub in other upper body workouts as I feel, to prevent boredom. On the cardio day, I do hiit and abs (just once a week.) I was working out in my living room yesterday where there is a mirror and glanced over and noticed my hamstrings look rounded for like the first time EVER! I was very excited. I noticed changes in my quads within maybe a week and a half. I absolutely love this program. The leg workouts are gold. I am staying on phase 1 for a while bc it remains challenging and I am going up in weight each workout. Though I am considering moving to Plyo Glutes next week.

The past 2 weeks I did not get in the leg workout 2x, just once and Glutes once. My legs felt very "heavy" so one week I did the stepmill and the last week I just took a rest day. I do hope to do legs 2x per week as much as possible..I am thinking maybe a metabolic workout or a hiit workout that really hits the legs..any suggestions on these? TIA!
