WHAT WEIGHT SHOULD I USE?
You can use whatever weight you have on hand or desire so long as you are able to safely perform the exercise with proper form. Keep in mind that typically, the heavier the weight, the less reps you will end up doing. This means your set will be completed faster and that you will be focusing more on bulking than endurance.
WHY IS THERE A TIMER ON THE VIDEOS?
Cutting does not focus on time. However, the timer is there as a tool for you to gauge improvement. As you progress and revisit workouts, you will be able to workout to the higher levels for longer. This also draws out each set as you improve. If anything, use the timer as a goal- see if you can last at level 3 for a full 30 seconds before cutting to level 2, for example.
WHAT IF THE MOVE IN A SET IS ONE-SIDED?
Some sets will be only left or only right sided. Perform all three levels on that one side and then repeat the video on the other side before moving on to the TUT and Stretch portions.
DO I HAVE TO GO AS FAST (OR AS SLOW) AS YOU IN THE VIDEO?
The short answer is no! You can definitely follow the videos for a safe and beneficial pace, but these workouts are for you! If you can go faster, go faster. If you need to take your time, slow it down. Just make sure to stay in control. The best time to speed up is during power or cardio moves. Sometimes slower movements- like during abdominal work or eccentric moves- is actually more beneficial because you are using your muscles instead of the momentum.
WHAT IF I AM A BEGINNER AND WANT TO PROGRESS TO THE ADVANCED MOVES?
Give the harder sets a try! It’s okay to start at the lower levels- 1 or 2- until you get better and stronger. The Fit Cut recommends trying the highest level you can for at least one rep. The more you consistently exercise, the sooner you will be able to do the advanced versions and more reps of the higher levels.
DO I HAVE TO FOLLOW THE CUT PROTOCOL TO USE THIS SITE?
Although you will most definitely benefit from how CUT IT workouts are designed, the exercises and playlists in this site can be used in circuit training workouts, boot camps, HIIT workouts, or individual exercise design. Feel free to create a playlist to your own liking or add specific reps or timing.
DO I HAVE TO DO INCLUDE ALL MUSCLE GROUPS IN ONE WORKOUT?
What muscle groups you include in each workout is completely up to you and the time you have to exercise. The Fit Cut recommends that you work large body parts first and following the order in which they are listed, however, you can design your workout whatever way you desire. One day you may focus all on upper body and the next on your lower body. You may choose to only do one set of abs or total body because you’re short on time or energy. Be creative and listen to your body’s needs. The Fit Cut is designed to fit your individual wants and circumstances.
