    I can do them but it leaves me not feeling quite right. I never knew something so simple could be so difficult.

    I found them painful and of no value for the legs. I skipped this step. This is the only step I've skipped however, the rest of the moves are "golden"!

    Thank you! So what kind of physical results have you guys seen in terms of weight gain/ weight loss? Or muscle gain? with CC?

    I found the shoulderstands to be more challenging in holding the position and achieving the range of motion desired. My belly got in my way. Anyways a friend of mine hurt his knee in iraq when a hummer door slammed on it. It healed but he is still in pain and limping and cannot straighten his leg under load or bend his knee very far while keeping his shins vertical. We found this out when he wanted to work out with me and do some kettlebell stuff. He was able to do the shoulderstand squats and the next day that his knee felt better. I told him to keep doing them but I don't know if he did.

    Would be interested in knowing this too. I'm just about to move on to the step 3s but I guess any really visible gains may not be till later steps?

    these questions depend on how much/little food you consume. Just last night a friend commented that my arms have grown bigger, however lately I've started eating more. I must also note that I am still on the earlier steps.

    I've been doing a combo of ETK and CC since December and am between steps 3 and 6 on the first 4 CC exercises.

    I'm progressing at a very easy pace because of a pretty heavy history of injury. I've lost about 45 pounds, have recovered a great deal of ROM in a pretty damaged knee and spine, and have reduced the amount of back pain to the lowest levels in years.

    I've even begun to throw the discus and shot in all-comers track meets. A year ago when my son first asked me to join him in these I would have dropped to my knees in pain from the twisting required. Now I compete! Okay, I register and throw, my old, stiff, creaky form is not competitive, but it's fun and it gives the younger bucks something to laugh at ... but who cares, I'm with my son and am out doing it. Actually, even though they are laughing, these younger athletes are also respectful and congratulatory toward my efforts.

    These programs have been almost "magical" in what they have done for me!
    Be well ... Lee.

    That's awesome DLS! Keep on competing! Those shoulderstands are no joke. I can imagine muscle gain accelerates allot on the later steps.
