Starting First Contest
 
I have been a member of Turbulence Training for several years but this is the first time I have entered one of the contests. I have been on my weight loss journey since November 2010 and this contest is a great incentive to push through and finish well. I started at 224 and was using Weight Watchers starting in November 2010 and I lost about 20 pounds in 18 months. I started working with a nutritionist starting this January when I was at 204.5. Now I am at 188 pounds and 34.7% body fat as of today.

I took my contest photos on Sunday so I guess I technically started then but I look forward to this contest :)

Right now I am doing the Buff Guys-Hot Gals and am in the second week... Just did the Workout B today for the second time. I am wondering what would be a good next workout for when I finish BGHG...

Hi

Good luck in your contest. You really can't go wrong with any of the monthly programs - when I was doing the contests I would simply use the current workout of that month. Some are 4 days per week (like this month's MRT 2.0) and some are 3 if that makes any difference to you.

Craig posted a list recently of the top ten workouts (I dont' recall if that was his opinion or feedback from members, but here they are in order:

TT Buff Dude Hot Chicks February 2009
TT Metabolic Resistance Training May 2011
TT Hardcore 2k10 May 2010
TT Bodyweight Cardio 3 June 2010
TT Reformed Meatheads May 2009
TT Amazing lower abs Aprl 2008
TT Hard core Fat loss June 2006
TT for abs 4 wk program sept 2007
TT Booty for Wife April 2010
TT Buff Guys and hot Gals July 2011

So plenty to choose from....wishing you much success...
