Cathe Live Rotation #2

cathelive2Now that I have done nearly 100 Cathe Live workouts (98 of the 127 Cathe Live workouts as of the creation of this post), I decided it was time to create another Cathe Live rotation. The difference between this rotation and the last one I created, is that I haven’t followed this one. I probably will one day, but I actually did the last one before I posted it. If I wait to do this one before I post it, it will not post any time soon! (Strong & Sweaty should be shipping soon and I am doing that as soon as I receive it!) However, I have done every workout in the rotation–most of them multiple times. So I’m not throwing up a rotation I am clueless about.

I tried to do several things with this rotation. First, to make it different from the last–both in structure and in workouts used. But there is some overlap because some of these workouts are just so awesome they cannot be left out. But again, there is limited space in a 6 week rotation–which means many workouts I would love to include did not get included.

So here it is–those of you looking for a balanced but varied rotation to use with your Cathe Live subscription. No workout is used twice in 6 weeks and the structure of the weeks vary. I used 3 different structures and each is used twice. So Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for the reply. I will pay more attention to the description of the workout. I really like Cathe’s work! Thank you for your input!


  2. Thank you so much for all the information about Cathe Live. I wonder if most of the classes are using steps? What’s the percentage? I don’t particular like steps, for weight training it is ok but not jumping on top… I am thinking about registering Cathe Live.


    1. I can’t give you a percentage because I don’t really know. I can say that for the cardio workouts, if a step is used, it is usually in the title somewhere. It generally isn’t mentioned in the title of the strength workouts tho–but you said that doesn’t concern you. I reviewed 2 pure cardio workouts with step in the title out of 16. But there are more cardio workouts that use the step. I just avoided them because the forum description seemed to indicate that the step choreography would be complex–which I hate. Now again, for the metabolic and cardio + strength, sometimes a step is used and sometimes it isn’t, and when it is used, it isn’t always mentioned in the title. So scrolling through the titles for that won’t give you a good idea. I’ve reviewed over 100 of her workouts and she currently has something like 130. I always list the equipment needed right before the exercise breakdown in the review, so you can always click on each review and quickly scroll to the breakdown to get an idea.


  3. Hi 🙂 Thanks for sharing another rotation with Cathe Live! You said…”No workout is used twice in 6 weeks and the structure of the weeks vary. I used 3 different structures and each is used twice.”
    Could you please elaborate on the structures you use? I looked at the first Cathe rotation and it looks like you might have been doing…
    3-Lower Body/Legs
    4-Upper Body
    6-Total Body
    It would helpful to know.
    Thanks, Janet


    1. You are correct on the first rotation. I broke it down in the summary above the actual rotation “The basic structure of this rotation is: Monday: total body strength + cardio, Tuesday: cardio, Wednesday: lower body, Thursday: upper body, Friday cardio kickboxing, Saturday: total body strength, Sunday: rest. And I also tried to make Wednesday or Thursday a cardio + strength workout.”

      The structures used in the second rotation: First structure: 1. cardio + strength total body, 2. metabolic cardio, 3. total body strength, 4. cardio, 5. metabolic cardio, 6. total body strength. Second structure: 1. upper or lower body strength 2. upper or lower body strength–if Monday was upper then Tuesday will be lower 3. cardio, 4. upper or lower body strength, 5. upper or lower body strength–if Thursday was upper then Friday will be lower, 6. cardio. Third Structure is very similar to the structure of the first/original rotation: 1. metabolic total body strength, 2. cardio, 3. upper or lower body, 4. upper or lower body (of upper was done on Wed. then lower will be done on Thursday), 5. cardio, 6. Total body strength.

      Hope this makes sense!

      So you are hitting each muscle group 2-3 times per week and lots of metabolic work. When I use the “metabolic” above in connection with cardio, all I mean is dumbbells are used to increase cardio intensity.


  4. This is so perfect! Thank you.. I just posted to Cathe she should do a live rotation this week and here’s yours!! Looks great.. will dig in today.. tho may have to add in a fresh one she does on Thursday as they all look good!


    1. That is the hardest part of following an rotation when you are subscribed to Cathe Live–as soon as she creates a new live workout, you have to re-arrange your workout schedule to try it!


  5. Thank you so much for sharing this! I’ve been in a rut lately, and I just haven’t been able to find a rotation that motivated me. I, like you, have done most of the Cathe Live videos, but I haven’t had the time or the energy to try to do something like this for myself. You’re the best!!
