Got a quick question: Where am I going wrong in my Nutrisystem diet? Many thanks for any answer or 2. Another question... Along with all the flab, I have also lost some muscle mass and am looking for a way to get it back in shape. I am considering an Iron Gym pull-up bar which doubles as a sit-up bar & push-up support. Does anyone have any experience they would like to share - either pro or con. A regular gym program isn't something I could do right now and I just don't think the PP workout will be what I'm looking for. So, any Iron Gym users out there?..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could give you an answer..

Thanks for the input. I saw the PP set at Walmart today on sale for $16.95. I may just pick one up for grins and take it back if I don't like it. I think the IG will be good just for the sit-up brace feature though. I have a hernia right above my belly button. I'm resisting having surgery until there isn't any other option and I think that strengthening my abs will help...

I also have the PP and the IronGym, while both are great,like Tom the PP is my fave by far. I have tennis elbow from playing guitar and the IG aggravates it to the point I may not be able to use it as prescribed..

One other option I highly recommend for your abs as well as other forms of exercise is a good body ball. One of the many exercises for abs you can do with it is my personal favorite for abs is a "Plank" where you rest your elbows and fore arms on the ball while sitting up on your knees and roll the ball out away from your body keeping you back straight. This puts stress on your core to support yourself and works all your abs, very effective and very low impact. Plus the body ball is a great stretching aid..

A good medicine ball is a great tool for exercising too. Lots of ab and also push up work can be done with a medicine ball too. For what your thinking of doing I would Highly recommend the PP a body ball and a medicine ball. None of them are too expensive I think the medicine ball will cost you the most at about $30 to $50 depending on the weight (I use a 12lb) with these three or just one you can improve your physical condition tremendously..

What tom said exactly....

I too prefer the PP over the IG. The only thing I'd add is that they are complimentary to one another but first start with the PP as that will build your strength. They each work a different body part so you'll feel great making progress with one and than realize that when you start with the other it's just as hard as when you started with the first. The PP has great structured routine that you can follow to get started and it can be customized to your own level. As your body responds positively than and only than you may feel it's time to push harder. Its important to remember that with the PP you're only lifting a percentage of your body weight as opposed to the IG where you are lifting your entire body weight so that is a bit more demanding and probably not a good place to start unless you do as Tom said and step up on platforms...



Its wonderful that you have decided to start some resistance training. You'll be amazed at your results. Just don't try to lift a truck your first week and you'll be fine..

Keep us posted..
