lifting heavy

Just wondering what a good heavy lifting workout would be.  I do some of the Ripped workouts and several of KCM's toning workouts.  My heavy isn't very heavy - with a high rep I definatley can't lift heavy.  I hear about Cathe alot - my only concern with her is the expense.  I also saw Amy Bento's {Slo Mo}7889^.  Your help would be appreciated.

    Meg, Cathe's dvds are well worth the price. You get a lot for your money. I would agree with you that high rep dvds are not really designed for heavy lifting. I am sure you know which Cathe's you would need for heavier lifting-- I would say, go for a couple, if you can! :)

    I'm with w.o.w. - {Pyramid}7431^ and {Muscle Max}7445^ are my favs for heavy lifting. I just ordered the new {STS Total Body}5938^. This looks good - we'll see.

    I rented Amy's {Slo Mo}7889^, but it just didn't click for me.

    Cathe of course for heavy lifting! If you are used to doing Jari, I might recommend Cathe's {High Reps}5918^. It is a little easier than most Cathes and the reps aren't excessive. Would say it is a little like Jari toning with higher weights and fewer reps. I also enjoy Gin Millers {Seriously Strong}7895^ if you want to go with someone other than Cathe.

    Love {High Reps}5918^, and I agree Nance, that you can go heavier on that one than on a Jari, because the reps are fewer. It is a GREAT dvd! So much fun to do it. :)

    I would suggest- Cathe- {Muscle Max}7445^, The three Gym Styles, {4 Day Split}7884^, {High Reps}5918^ or {STS Total Body}5938^.

    KCM- 30 minutes to Fitness- {Weights}7991^ or 30 Minutes to Fitness- {Muscle Definition}5766^

    I would definitely suggest Cathe.  There is  a {Slow & Heavy}7652^ series from Cathe.  If you are looking for a total body w/o I would suggest {Muscle Max}7445^.  You really do get what you pay for with Cathe.  She gives you so many premixes.  I think she is worth every penny.

    Cathe's {Pyramid}7431^ DVD is also good.  It really does help you to go heavier.  There is a lower and upper workout and a full body premix that comes in under an hour.  This premix is one of Cathe's hidden gems.  I love this DVD.

    I prefer Amy Bento. {Slo Mo}7889^ has some different moves so it is interesting and gets you burning. There are premixes, too.

    I agree with Cathe's {Slow and Heavy}7652^, {Pyramid}7431^, {Muscle Max}7445^ and I haven't received it yet but the {total body STS}5938^ looks like it's geared towards heavy lifting.  Amy's {Slo Mo}7889^ is another good one,  but you have to do the premixes because the dvd is really long.

    I had an intersting talk with my nephew who is a national caliber swimmer about his dry land training. For him, high reps is 12-15; low reps 6-8. Couldn't conceptualize 50+ reps. I was wondering if anyone had tried taking a DVD like {Muscle Max}7445^ and upping the weight to the 6-8 rep level and then just resting during the other reps? If so, how did it go?....D

    EM~
    Tell your nephew hello from one National swimmy to another :-)
    Our dryland training was just like your nephews. We also switched it up for those who were sprinters and those who were endurance swimmers. Sprinters used lighter weights, more reps, endrance swimmers used heavier weights, lower reps (depending on the exercise). That was "way back in the day" so I'm sure things have changed some, but the basic presmise is the same.
    Your question piqued my interest because I own {MM}7445^ but haven't had the chance to use it.
    I still like traditional weight training, so I'll look at MM through my Swimmy eyes (ha) and will report back.
