Thanks for the article. This keeps me informed about the topic.
By the way, if you have time, please give me a few seconds by visiting my websit: lifelinehomephone.com
Exercises not listed in the database:
Ankle Flexion/ Calf Extension (I assume these are the normal just stand up on your tip toes?)
Depth Jumps (I'm not even sure what to guess for these?)
Also, what is the difference between the swiss ball decline pushup and the swiss ball stability pushup?
Thanks (great post, btw!)

i purchased the 12 week fat stripping endurance plan. Does a meal plan come with the program or is that a separate plan to purchase.
Is that the one from https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/tpplans ? If so that is workouts, not meals…
rest between exercise? rest between circuit?
These look great! I have a question for you. Why is it that on days I work out (I'm not an Iron woman, so I don't workout every day) I instantly feel better in my body? The muscles haven't had a chance to rebuild and yet my glutes and hamstrings are working better. I go up and down stairs with more control and grace. Why is this so instant? I've noticed it with arms and abs too.
