Barlates: Fusion Flow/Mat

Fusion Flow: Mat is one of Linda Wooldridge's flowing dynamic stretch/strengthening workouts. This one was mostly a feel good workout that worked me well but wasn't challenging like some of her others. Until you get to #10 (below), that is--that exercise started to burn me out after all that came before it (plus, I had … Continue reading Barlates: Fusion Flow/Mat

Barlates: Dynamic Flow/Lengthen

Dynamic Flow: Lengthen is another of Linda Wooldridge's flowing dynamic stretch/strengthening workouts. However, this one felt much more strength than stretch focused to me. I was working hard. This workout has a lot of down dog based exercises in it. It definitely challenged me. I followed it up with Fusion Flow: Mat, which was a … Continue reading Barlates: Dynamic Flow/Lengthen

Barlates: Energy Flow/Barre

Energy Flow: Barre is a tough workout from Linda Wooldridge! It was tough for me it least--it completely fried my legs. I hit lower body burn out multiple times. But I loved it! Linda worked me hard. I got cardio and barre strength work in this workout. There is some hopping in this workout but … Continue reading Barlates: Energy Flow/Barre

Barlates: Feel Good Series

As soon as I saw the trailers for Linda Wooldridge's Feel Good Series, I had to have it. The workouts looked very similar to several of her other series that have come out at the same time (Fusion Flow Series, Dynamic Flow Series and Energy Flow Series) and have been reviewed here. The Feel Good … Continue reading Barlates: Feel Good Series

Barlates: Warm & Stretch/Upper

Warm & Stretch: Upper is another nice dynamic flexibility workout from Linda Wooldridge. Just like the other two Warm & Stretch workouts (Standing and Ball), Linda starts with some very active dynamic flexibility movements to get you warmed up. Since this is entirely upper body focused the entire workout is done on a mat. This … Continue reading Barlates: Warm & Stretch/Upper

Barlates: Energy Flow/Band

Energy Flow: Band is another workout in Linda Wooldridge's Energy Flow Series. I love, love, love all of these flowing workouts! I pretty much love everything Linda creates, but these flowing metabolic fusion workouts are my absolute favorites. This one, as the title suggests, uses the band. I felt like the focus was primarily on … Continue reading Barlates: Energy Flow/Band

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 but I didn't break … 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
