    Rusty,
    I purchased your visual impact for women and was using treadmill as my main HIIT/cardio with the elipitical for secondary cardio.

    Unfortunately, the back pain I was constantly experiencing was in fact severe disc degernation as L5,S1. My osteo has suggested that I stop running/jogging as this would accelerate the disc degeneration. I’m not sure what cardio that would be best to not bulk up the legs, as my main issue is bulky calves/legs? I alawys feel a slight ‘pump’ with the stairmaster so would it mean I’m limited to the elliptical. The osteo also suggested that I try swimming.

    What are your thoughts on what cardio I could do to minimise legs bulking up whilst not doing anything too high impact?

    Would really appreciate this, as I feel useless now I’ve been told not to run!

    Hi Rusty!

    I am on Week 3 of your Visual Impact for Women Program (I’m loving it, sooooo glad I bought it!) and I’d like to integrate my heart rate monitor into the program. Do you have a formula that I can use to determine what a Steady State Cardio target heart rate would look like? Perhaps it’s in the Fat Burning range? And what sort of heart rate one should aim for during the peaks of the HIIT? More of the Cardio range? I’m keen to figure this out because my heart rate monitor shows that I burn far less calories than the readouts on the treadmill/elliptical would have me believe, and I just want to make sure that I’m making my workouts work for me.

    Thanks so much for this huge wealth of knowledge… I am whittling away at the ol’ waistline and hope to reach goal weight/Body Fat % by the new year. That way, I won’t have “Weight Loss” as a resolution!

    Rusty, I was wondering if I can go about Visual Impact backwards. That is, I have a bit of muscle built up but it’s soft because of fat. I want to lose the fat first and am now doing your men’s version of Phase III, 2-4 reps and the diet you prescribe. Would this be OK and get to my target weight, then start the building diet with the cumulative fatigue Phase I program? –Thanks.

    Hey there Rusty,
    I purchased visual impact for women over a month ago. I have had fantastic results, it works! I have been following the program and I have lost 5 kilos. Before Visual Imapct, I had been weight training (heavy weights 8-10 reps to failure) and eating every 3 hours for 17 years (since I was 16). Although I looked fit and slim, I felt that I was too muscular, especially around my legs and arms, and that my muscles kinda looked puffy :( Visual Impact for Women has given me the knowledge and tools to help me achieve the slim, lean, toned feminine look I have always craved. I am finally free of organising

    Continued…… I am finally free of organizing my life around eating every three hours and am looking better than ever. Thanks rusty. I do have one question though…… I have a natural ‘bubble butt’ that I don’t want to lose, I have stopped doing lower body weight training to reduce the size of my overtrained bulky muscular legs; my legs have slimmed down heaps :) but my butt seems to be less perky and firm, any suggestions?………

    Hi Rusty!

    This is a great read and I bought your book a few weeks ago. But I’m curious about one thing (You probably mentioned it somewhere in the book, but I can’t really remember if you did!There’s a lot in it lol). I personally don’t really like the size of my calf muscles. I think they’re to big and I want to reduce their size. Now I know that you have a way of decreasing muscle mass while increasing muscle tone.

    But would that method really work on my calf muscles? I’ve heard that the way to decrease them is just to do steady-state Cardio and to do no sprinting. I’m sorry if you’ve mentioned this before, but I’m really getting confused with everything I hear.

    Thanks for reading this and I hope you respond :)

    Hi Rusty ! Love your stuff !
    I was told that females lose their breast size when burning fat, is this true ? Most of us wouldn’t want to lose it but would still want to lose stomach and other fat, do you have a way of achieving this ?
    Thanks !

    I just bought the Visual Impact for Women course as well. I also am a little confused about how to do the weight lifting part of the routine (I am doing a 2-day home split). Are we supposed to perform it in a circuit style or are we supposed to do one exercise, rest, and keep doing that exercise until we have finished all the sets … then move onto the next exercise? If we are supposed to rest, how long is the right amount of time?

    Please help as I am rather clueless! Thanks!

    I have the same questions as most of the above. What is the appropriate rest period and all sets in a row or a circuit? I am really excited to get into this. It makes so much sense to me. Thank you.
