Barlates: Warm & Stretch with Ball

I love Linda's Warm & Stretch workouts! They are perfect to combine with my Sunday yoga workouts. Lately I have been doing Classical Stretch on Sundays and I use the Warm & Stretch workouts to finish it off. I keep expecting the Warm & Stretch workouts to be lower intensity than Classical Stretch (review will post … Continue reading Barlates: Warm & Stretch with Ball

Barlates: Dynamic Flow/Sculpt

This workout was tougher than I thought it would be! I love the length. At 25 minutes it is perfect to use to finish off workouts that are in the 30-40 minute range. This morning I used it to finish off another one of Linda Wooldridge's wonderful fusion workouts: Energy Flow: Sculpt. That one worked … Continue reading Barlates: Dynamic Flow/Sculpt

Barlates: Energy Flow/Sculpt

Another excellent workout in Linda Wooldridge's Flow series. This one is part of the Energy Flow collection. The title of this one is Sculpt and I feel that is a pretty accurate title. Though she only uses one 5 pound dumbbell, she still works you muscles hard. Unfortunately, I am still limited to lifting no … Continue reading Barlates: Energy Flow/Sculpt

Barlates: Dynamic Flow/Active

Wow--another excellent and intense workout from Linda Wooldridge. This one is part of her Dynamic Flow series. The title of this one is Active and I imagine that is because of the cardio factor. I was working very hard. Keep in mind, other than walking, I haven't been working out for several weeks (until this … Continue reading Barlates: Dynamic Flow/Active

Barlates: Fusion Flow/Dynamic

I am loving Linda Wooldridge's new series. She has created several new series; each series contains 4 workouts and they are all perfect for my current fitness level (recovering from major surgery). In fact, I emailed her a while ago and three of these new series (Dynamic Flow, Fusion Flow and Energy Flow) will all … Continue reading Barlates: Fusion Flow/Dynamic

Barlates: Warm & Stretch/Standing

I was very interested when I saw that Linda Wooldridge had created a new series called Warm & Stretch. Not just because I am in recovery mode and looking for easier workouts. Warm & Stretch workouts look and sound like something I would use in conjunction with yoga on my yoga Sundays--regardless of what my … Continue reading Barlates: Warm & Stretch/Standing

Barlates: Fusion Flow/Easy Cardio

My doctor finally gave me clearance to exercise again--though I have restrictions. No impact, I cannot lift dumbbells heavier than 2-3 pound dumbbells, no planks or push ups. Though that limits things, there are still quite a few workouts I can do--including some of Linda's new Barlates workouts. Yesterday I did one of Jessica Smith's … Continue reading Barlates: Fusion Flow/Easy Cardio

Barlates: Bodyweight Basics Lower

I thought, by the title (Bodyweight Basics Lower), this might be more my speed. I don't have a problem with Linda's Beginner Interval workouts right now, but her Endurance 90 Lower killed me. I thought--maybe this will be easier than Endurance 90 Lower. And it probably is easier. But chemo is really tearing me down … Continue reading Barlates: Bodyweight Basics Lower

Barlates: Beginner Intervals: Ramp It Up

Beginner Intervals: Ramp It Up is the fourth workout in Linda Wooldridge's Beginner Interval series. The other 3 workouts are Old School Aerobics, Compound Moves and Cardio Sculpt. I love all of these workouts but I think Old School Aerobics is still my favorite. Ramp It Up, as indicated by the title, is a bit … Continue reading Barlates: Beginner Intervals: Ramp It Up
