Cathe Live: Hooked on Legs

hookedonlegs-7-7-16Hooked on Legs is another intense and effective lower body workout from Cathe. And she has so many of them! It is really hard to choose which one I want to do–especially now that I think I’ve done nearly every single one of her Live lower body workouts (except the most recent one). In this workout Cathe not only fries your legs, but you will get your cardio in, too. My legs were so fatigued by the end that I was having a hard time with the floor work. My glutes were protesting painfully during it! Of course I have been frying them every other day for the past week. And I also started Riptensity which unexpectedly fried my glutes and hamstrings yesterday. So they were already wishing for a break!

Hooked on Legs 52 minutes long; 9 minute warm up, 33 minutes standing legs, 7 minute floor work and 2:30 minute stretch. Equipment needed: step w/ 3 risers, various dumbbells, a sliding device and a fitness mat. It aired live on 7/07/16 and here is the video clip.

  3. Alternating pulsing reverse lunges (Cathe used 5# DBs, I used 8# DBs)
  4. Repeat 1-3 two more times (there are no breaks between any of these moves, including repeating them)
  5. Side slide pick up lunges (setting down and picking up one DB between each side lunge), 16 reps (Cathe used one 12# DB, I used one 15# DB)
