Fit Body by Julia: Get Pumped #5: Back Focus

Get Pumped #5: Back Focus is my final 2017 workout. I feel kind of sad. I have been really enjoying the long morning workouts I have been doing while on staycation. I do have one more day before I have to return to the daily grind and I have a long Yvette Bachman workout planned … Continue reading Fit Body by Julia: Get Pumped #5: Back Focus

BOSU Cardio Mashup

I was very excited to do Bosu Cardio Mashup. In fact, one of my Christmas presents this year was a bosu ball that I wanted primarily to do Yvette's bosu workouts. Since then I have found a lot more bosu workouts; workouts by Fit Body by Julia and Mindy Mylrea specifically, but some others on … Continue reading BOSU Cardio Mashup

Fit Body by Julia: Back & Lat Burst

My back is probably my favorite muscle group to work (with my glutes followed close behind) so when I saw this mini workout was only 27 minutes, I knew I had to give it a try. It could be the perfect finisher for another workout. And I was right! I loved this workout! Very intense … Continue reading Fit Body by Julia: Back & Lat Burst

Fit Body by Julia: Deadweight Legs

When I saw the title of this workout, I was anticipating a lower body workout. This is much more than that. This is actually a total body strength workout with a heavy lower body focus--and as the title suggests, a lot of deadlifts. But you do work all of your major upper body muscle groups … Continue reading Fit Body by Julia: Deadweight Legs

Cardio & Kettlebell

Wow! Another incredible workout from Yvette Bachman! I love this woman's workouts! Cardio & Kettlebell is one of her longer workouts (71:30 minutes) but this can easily be shortened for a workday (for me that is--I only have an hour in the morning M-F to workout before I go to work. I am on staycation … Continue reading Cardio & Kettlebell

Fit Body by Julia: PHAT #3

With PHAT #3 I have now done all of Julia's PHAT workouts (though they were all created by Jori, Julia performs them on her YouTube channel Fit Body by Julia and makes some modifications to Jori's workout). Like all of the PHAT workouts I really enjoyed this. It was an excellent total body metabolic strength … Continue reading Fit Body by Julia: PHAT #3

Kickboxing/High Calorie Cardio Blast

Kickboxing/High Calorie Cardio Blast is another excellent and fun workout from Yvette Bachman. This one is primarily cardio kickboxing. It is one of her long classes (71:30 minutes). However the final 16:30 minutes isn't cardio. It is lower body and core work. So if you only have an hour, do the first 54 minutes of … Continue reading Kickboxing/High Calorie Cardio Blast

Fit Body by Julia: PHAT #4

After doing PHAT #2 and not loving it nearly as much as PHAT #1, I considered not doing PHAT #3 and #4 at all. I am so glad I stuck with the plan because I love PHAT #4--as much as PHAT #1. PHAT #4 is awesome! And like PHAT #1, it will grow with you … Continue reading Fit Body by Julia: PHAT #4

Fit Body by Julia: Extra Lean PHAT #2

This morning I did a long Fit Body by Julia workout: Extra Lean PHAT #2. I was really looking forward to it after doing her PHAT #1, which I loved, and also because I love the PHAT modality. And this was a good and challenging workout. I did like it and got a great workout … Continue reading Fit Body by Julia: Extra Lean PHAT #2

High Intensity Cardio Blast

High Intensity Cardio Blast is another excellent and fun workout from Yvette Bachman. It was just what I needed after doing primarily Fit Body by Julia workouts this week. I love Julia's workouts but they aren't fun and the time does not fly. They are just hard (but very effective) work. Yvette's workouts are fun … Continue reading High Intensity Cardio Blast
