JessicaSmithTV: Leg Day

The name of this video is actually Legs, Butt, Hips & Thighs Workout but one of the first things Jessica says at the beginning of the workout is that it is Leg Day. Plus that is the first thing she writes in the workout description. I like the sound of that for a workout title, … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: Leg Day

JessicaSmithTV: Upper Body Strength

Upper Body Strength is quick but thorough and efficient upper body strength workout. I used in combination with Jessica's 40 minute Leg Day for an hour long total body strength workout. If you use heavy enough weights, this is pretty intense. Upper Body Strength Workout is 21 minutes long; 2:30 minute warm up and Jessica … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: Upper Body Strength

JessicaSmithTV: 2-in-1 Toning

2-in-1 Toning is another short but comprehensive total body metabolic strength workout. Jessica really excels at creating these short but very effective workouts. I really enjoyed this workout. The audio gets messed up during #11 below but it is restored by the end. Jessica even has words appear on the screen apologizing for the "audio … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: 2-in-1 Toning

JessicaSmithTV: 10 Minute Total Body Stretch

10 Minute Total Body Stretch is a great way to finish off a total body workout. I really love that Linda Wooldridge has her free Barlates warm up and upper and lower body stretches to start and finish workouts but she doesn't have a total body stretch to finish off a total body workout. Well, … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: 10 Minute Total Body Stretch

Barlates: Mat Barre Series

Mat Barre Series contains 3 workouts that use some combination of a pilates ball, a resistance loop or a resistance band--and in one of the workouts, all 3 are used. These are all total body strength workouts done on the floor (mat work). They are all very tough and effective workouts. Since none of these workouts have … Continue reading Barlates: Mat Barre Series

JessicaSmithTV: Weight Loss Cardio Sculpt

Weight Loss Cardio Sculpt isn't a cardio workout. Jessica says that the point of the title is to understand that cardio burns calories in the moment but building muscle burns calories all of the time. This is a metabolic circuit workout. With the right weights, this workout is intense enough to give you a cardio workout, too--that is … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: Weight Loss Cardio Sculpt

JessicaSmithTV: Cardio Mat Fusion #1

I did Cardio Mat Fusion #2 before I did Cardio Mat Fusion #1--not on purpose. I just never realized there was a #1 until I was already doing #2. Though this is also a low impact, no equipment workout, I found it different from the second one in several ways. First, this one was more … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: Cardio Mat Fusion #1

JessicaSmithTV: Dynamic Stretch

Dynamic Stretch is a flowing active yoga routine. I really, really enjoyed this. I have been doing a lot of Jessica's stretching and yoga routines lately and I do like them a lot but they are pretty gentle. I like that this one is a bit more aggressive. Now, it's definitely not an aggressive yoga … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: Dynamic Stretch

JessicaSmithTV: S.O.S. (Stretch Out Stress)

S.O.S. is part of Jessica Smith's Fit in 15 workouts. She has 15 free workouts on YouTube that are all approximately 15 minutes long and this is one of them. The point of her  Fit in 15 program is to help you start an exercise program. There is more to her Fit in 15 (free) … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: S.O.S. (Stretch Out Stress)
