    LOL Autumn... shhhh! It's mostly in our heads!

    Cindy you are talking about me! I totally was so frustrated because FI hopped on day one and is doing full pullups with ease and I try to go from just standing which is much easier and he's looking at me going "just do one! Try!" and I'm like... "you don't understand, I AM TRYING!!" It took me trying to do a pull up every single day probably multiple times a day before I finally did one and called FI screaming :)

      Hey ladies - oh pull ups - they will be the death of me. They are still really tough for me and I can't do a proper one either with the bars we have at home - at the gym I can do the close grip one but I think it's all in my arms. One thing that helps me is if my FI helps me a little. I do it with one foot on my couch, they still make me out of breath so I figure I'm still burning calories - but like you ladies I wish I could do them like my FI...but I don't really want his huge back muscles lol..

            Kittenheart, that is amazing! You are my inspiration. I can't wait till I can do my first real pull up.

I am doingthe classic program. My goal is to loose inches and tone up. I wouldnt mind dropping 5-8 lbs either. You think the classic will help me to achieve this? Thanks guys.
                  Welcome!
                  I think that if you have some "extras" to lose then this program would definitely help. Obviously it won't work as well if you're eating like crap - but I think you'll definitely notice a difference within the first few weeks - with more results in the second/third phases.
                  You would think after weeks of doing this that my body would be used to it but I'm still pretty sore on a regular basis - I guess that's the beauty of this program and why it works :). Let us know how it goes for you :)

                      I am on week 2 and I already can tell a difference in my body. I feel stronger and more confident. People keep asking me if I am losing weight or saying that I look thinner/more toned (mainly in the arms). If this is the kind of results Im getting after 2 weeks I can only image what it will be like in 3 months :-)
