Cathe Live: Crossfire Express

Crossfire Express is a short but intense workout based on one of Cathe's DVD workouts Crossfire. And Crossfire is one of my all time favorite HIIT/metabolic strength training workouts. So I was both excited and apprehensive to try this one. Excited for obvious reasons, but apprehensive because I love the DVD version of Supercuts but … Continue reading Cathe Live: Crossfire Express

Meta Shred 21

Never has marketing sold me on a program as strongly as it has Meta Shred. I am familiar w/ BJ Gaddour from 10 Minute Torchers and though I liked him and his workouts, his name is not what sold me. I follow Men's Health on Facebook and the ad for Meta Shred kept popping up. I … Continue reading Meta Shred 21

Cathe Live: Strong Upper Body Express

For such a short strength workout, Strong Upper Body Express is excellent. As usual, Cathe does a thorough job hitting every muscle group and fatiguing them really well. By the end, she pretty much burned out nearly every muscle group in the upper body. It is pretty fast paced, too--the express part, I suppose. She … Continue reading Cathe Live: Strong Upper Body Express

Cathe Live: Kickbox Bootcamp

This was a very interesting workout. A few things to note upfront. This is the very first Cathe Live--and you can tell. This workout has issues. Second, on the Cathe Live page it is listed as "Bootcamp"; however, it is kickboxing bootcamp, so that is what I am calling it. I actually really liked this workout … Continue reading Cathe Live: Kickbox Bootcamp

Cathe Live: Cardio & Weights (upper body)

The (upper body) in the blog post title is not part of the actual title Cathe gave this workout; I just added it for my own information. It is a Cathe Live workout called Cardio & Weights and I love it. Yet another excellent cardio + strength workout from Cathe and I especially love that … Continue reading Cathe Live: Cardio & Weights (upper body)

Cathe Live: Ripped with HIIT Scrambler

I love Ripped w/ HIIT workouts. So when I saw this "scrambler" I had to try it. I was hoping for a total body strength + HIIT workout. I didn't quite get it here. Here is Cathe's description of this workout: Ripped With Hiit Scrambler With Step LIVE is a mix of RWH Lower Body … Continue reading Cathe Live: Ripped with HIIT Scrambler

Cathe Live: Cross Train Lower Body

Wow--this was a more intense Cathe Live workout than I expected. For some reason I did not expect this to be so cardio intensive (even tho she says there is cardio in the workout description on her forum). It is strength + cardio and it is also contrast training. Overall more challenging than I expected. … Continue reading Cathe Live: Cross Train Lower Body

Cathe Live: Kickboxing & Compound Weights

Kickboxing & Compound Weights is another great Cathe Live kickboxing workout. Intense and fun. It is set up in Cathe's standard cardio kickboxing/boxing structure--combos alternated with cardio blasts. Overall it wasn't too complicated but she did have one rather complex punching combo that was even giving her problems! Cathe kept messing up her own combo. That's … Continue reading Cathe Live: Kickboxing & Compound Weights

Cathe Live: Cardio Leg Blast w/ High Step

This was a super tough Cathe Live workout! It wasn't exactly what I expected but it definitely fried my legs. Due to the title I was expecting the workout to alternate between cardio and strength but that's not how it played out at all. It started with cardio then went to very intense metabolic work … Continue reading Cathe Live: Cardio Leg Blast w/ High Step

Targeted Training Boot Camp

As I mentioned in my review of Element: Cardio & Conditioning Yoga, while browsing the workout DVDs at the library I noticed they not only had new workouts but workouts that had just been released in December 2015. Tracy Anderson's Targeted Training Boot Camp was one of them. I really like Tracy Anderson's lower body … Continue reading Targeted Training Boot Camp
