JessicaSmithTV: Interval Power Walk/Jog

Interval Power Walk/Jog was an intense little cardio interval workout from Jessica Smith! It is one of her free YouTube workouts.

The … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: Interval Power Walk/Jog


Classical Stretch Season 8: Age Defying Series

Season 8 was my first introduction to Classical Stretch. I checked it out from the library 6 months ago and used it while rehabilitating from a major surgery. It worked very nicely for that purpose but once my surgeon loosened up my restrictions a bit, it fell to the wayside as I dove into Barlates' … Continue reading Classical Stretch Season 8: Age Defying Series

30 Minute Marching Workout with Cardio Bursts

This workout caught my eye on YouTube when I did a search for walking workouts, so I decided to give it a try. I have never heard of Jenny Ford. She is very cute and has great energy! This wasn't an advanced or tough workout, but Jenny seemed to be working hard. She did this … Continue reading 30 Minute Marching Workout with Cardio Bursts

Yin AM: Yin Yoga for Upper Body Tension Relief

JessicaSmithTV: Stride & Step

Stride & Step is a YouTube cardio step workout from Jessica Smith. It is a great, short, uncomplicated cardio workout. And exactly what I need after a long day at work. Some thoughtless cardio.

JessicaSmithTV: 19 Minute Squat Free Lower Body Strength Workout

Squat Free Lower Body Strength Workout is one of Jessica Smith's newer (free) YouTube workouts and it is a solid add on workout.

I did Barlates: Energy Flow/Functional first, … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: 19 Minute Squat Free Lower Body Strength Workout

Barlates Fusion Flow Box Set

Barlates: Fusion Flow is a box set that collects 3 of Linda @ Barlates DVDs together. Each DVD has 4 workouts on it, so this box set contains 12 workouts.

Barlates: Dynamic Flow/Functional

Dynamic Flow: Functional is another of Linda Wooldridge's flowing bodyweight strength workouts. This one starts with a light cardio warm up before the real work starts. And this workout builds! It worked me well! I was pushing through by #11--which was a challenging combo move but doable. I credit my ability to get through #11 … Continue reading Barlates: Dynamic Flow/Functional
