You guys are so fantastic. I knew where to come to let go and get advice. DH will be picking up the resistance tube kit for me tomorrow on his way home from work.

I know I was really down on him last night for kicking me out of the living room, but I do have a big advantage being married to him. We live 45 minutes from the nearest BB. However, DH work in West Palm Beach and passes BB every day. Hey, he owes me. LOL.

Thank you again my friends.

Well, I hope I did the right thing. I'm sorta scared of these games since I have very bad knees, but I bought this game to try. I haven't the money right now for the Wii fit, but I got this from Game stop with the bundle for 29.99 today.

Crossing my fingers that it won't hurt my knees. Kitty

Resistance band.
I let it Over lap on the floor, and then step on it.
That takes the slack out of it and can be much more resistance.
I have even used my weights instead of the band.
They have weights that have a bar, sorta like a kettle ball, but rectangle, at Fred Meyer store.
That would be easy to hold weights and the controls while doing these workouts.

I just cuss at my trainer and tell her how I'm really feeling. :)

Also, psyclone makes a wii resistance tube kit that comes with 3 different resistance. Each one has the handles already attached so I just grab the one that is appropriate for that exercise from the pile. Like I use more resistance for bicep curls vs. shoulder presses. I really like them. I found them at Best Buy for $20

LOL I don't mind the chatter (maybe because it is usually very quiet in my houswe or something), LOL. But I enjoyed your venting. Maybe gags will be part of the next upgrade. :-)

I traded out the resistance band because I found the one that came had no resistance. I am not a lover of the Active so I don't use it a lot.

Sorry I can't be of more help

I don't know about anyone one else, but I would like to gag my trainer on Active Sport. He drives me up a wall with his constant chatter. I think if you show a person how something works, talk should be limited until the middle and end of the exercise. Not for every single blasted move. Truth be told, I think I'm just going on and on because I was wooooed out and just wanted the exercise to be over. The more I worked out, the more aggravating his voice became. LOL. I sound very petty I know, but dang...

Another thing, do anyone else here find that the resistance band has very little resistance in it? I tried to use another that I had, but it kept slipping out of the handles. so I tried taking in some of the slack. Fat lot that did. It still feels like too much. The tube's handle is too fat. Anyone have a better solution?

OK. I'm finished venting.
