Cathe Live: ICE Total Body Compound

icetotalbodycompoundICE Total Body Compound is a Cathe Live workout based on the ICE series workout Metabolic Total Body. It was a great workout and I loved it, just like I love the DVD version. However, I do not think it is as intense as the DVD version. As I mentioned in the Shock Circuit review, I did this workout in combination with another workout. However, this workout was the second workout not the first, so I really (unfortunately) cannot judge how well it stands on its own. Paired with Shock Circuit I got an excellent total body metabolic workout. But alone, I think they both may have been a bit… easier than what I prefer. But I did love this workout. It was fun, it worked my body well, too. I will have to try this one on its own at least once to get a good idea of how I want to use it in the future. But the way I used it today–paired with Shock Circuit–was perfect for me. 82 minutes of metabolic strength work and I loved it.

ICE Total Body Compound is 43 minutes long; 7:30 minute warm up and 3:30 minute stretch.  Equipment needed: various dumbbells and a fitness mat. It aired live on 1/14/16 and here is the video clip. Below I list what weight Cathe used for each exercise and what weight I used.
