[YSFE] : Sleeve-Busting Arms
CALORIES : 51 / 2017 - 2000 burned calories
DURATION : 10 min / 4h42

[EASA2] : Workout 20 of 36 + custom workout (Biceps Curls + Push Ups)
EXERCISES : 36 (34+2)
CALORIES : 255 (247+8) / 5346
DURATION : 37 (35+2) min / 13h52
MHB : 189 / 200
AHB : 111 (121+101) / 114
DISTANCE (miles) : 2.8 / 15.98

I had less trouble with "Star Planks", rather than put my arm on the floor near my head, I placed it near my shoulder. It was easier.

My MHB was still high, but I think it's because I put the HBM tighter.

I did the Kinect Tuner and I lower the angle of Kinect, it helped a little but I still have problems with recognition.

RE: My "Get in shape" Blog
It says that de Kinect works best near the minimum height (60 cm) or the maximum height (2 metres). At which height do you have the Kinect? But it is weird that it is all of a sudden not working right... I mean it was fine up until now right?
Good luck, figuring out how to solve it.

My kinect is on top my tv (near my head's height) and yes it worked well until now. Today it was 50% of cardio (just 17% lower) and it was almost perfect...

[EASA2] : Workout 24 of 36
EXERCISES : 34
CALORIES : 279 / 6452
DURATION : 38 min / 16h34
MHB :182 / 200
AHB : 126 / 114
DISTANCE (miles) : 2.81 / 19.24

Phase 2 completed Big Grin

Ok I think I solved my recognition problems, what I found is that when I drink water or I wipe my face between exercises, it loses me. So if I get out of the sight of the kinect just before the next exercise it loses me, if I drink water and I wait for the next exercise to be started before putting the water bottle on the table, it’s ok. I think it scans you just before starting the next exercise.

And while doing exercises, if I let my head and my shoulders toward the kinect and the light (my lamp is on the left side of my tv), it work much better. I will add another light on the right side of the room.

It seems that the website of EA Sports Active (http://www.easportsactive.com) has received an update, it’s more polish and faster.

[EASA2] : Workout 26 and 27 of 36
EXERCISES : 58 (25+33)
CALORIES : 508 (225+283) / 7253 - 7000 burned calories
DURATION : 1h19 (34+41 min) / 18h31
MHB :168 and 179 / 200
AHB : 108 and 120 / 114
DISTANCE (miles) : 4.19 (3.4+0.79) / 22.1

I did the first one with my son (he's 10) and he’s not in good shape, he’s not doing sports during winter. He found that the workout was hard for him. He will do it with me once a week to be ready for the next season of soccer.

I had a new exercise : Straight Legged Sit Ups. Am I the only one who can’t do it ??? Each time I tried I can do 5 or 6 of them but my legs are ending up in the air and my arms are way in front of me. It seem so easy for the instructor. I have to do it with something heavy on my ankles. And the number of repetition of Split Squat Jump Repeats is now 40 Sad

Even tough I mostly solved my recognition problem, I still have some difficulties. I finally and completely solved it, my kinect was turned toward the left by only 3 or 4 degree, but enough to cause problems.

I don't have a problem with the Straight Legged Sit Ups but I do still struggle to finish a complete rep. of Star Planks and the Alternating Arm Leg Planks. I don't think it's a huge problem if you lift your legs a little though as long as you're trying not to and your still working your abs.

And I agree with that upping Split Squat Jump Repeats to 40 is just plain mean; I can do them but I never squat all the way down now as I know if I do I just burn out after 20.

[EASA2] : Workout 29 of 36

CALORIES : 360 / 7890
DURATION : 47 min / 19h58
MHB :173 / 200
AHB : 120 / 115
DISTANCE (miles) : 1.21 / 24.25

This is the biggest workout i’ve done so far with 360 calories and it last for 47 min. Strangely it was not the toughest because it was concentrated more on cardio than lower body.

Yesterday I bought a mat and a resistance tube kit at Walmart. Both are from Everlast. The mat (17$) is excellent and it make a huge difference for me.

I love the resistance tube kit (20$), I use the medium tube and it’s perfect. The interior of the handles is made of foam and they turn with your hands.

Thanks !

Well, it's because I'm on the 3rd phase. I had burned only 160-180 in the first 2 workouts.

It does build you up slowly. In my first few weeks I was burning 100 odd calories in a 20 odd minute session and it built up to 200 odd calories a a session, then 300 and now I'm into the 400 over 50 minutes. It's gradual and really well thought out though if you'd heard my swearing at the TV during this mornings grueling 31st workout you'd think I thought otherwise.

I do burn more off than Legeffer because I'm heavier though at 180lbs; I'm actually a little lower but haven't updated it for a few weeks. Having just read your weight you'll soon find your burning a lot off, keep at it.
