Focus: Break Through

Break Through is also subtitled Volume 5. It is the last workout in Tracie Long's Focus Series. The other 4 workouts are Power Up, Lift Higher, Kickback and Reach Further. She created those 4 workouts first then apparently decided to add this one on to the series later. And I am glad! I really liked … Continue reading Focus: Break Through

Longevity: Leaning Out

Leaning Out is another fabulous total body strength workout in Tracie Long's Longevity series. This workout was tough but doable, so high intermediate level with the right weights. The only exercise I had any problems with were the modified dive bomber push ups and that was mostly due to my shoulder problem. I was able … Continue reading Longevity: Leaning Out

Focus: Power Up

Power Up is another 30 minute workout from Tracie Long in her Focus series and I did not enjoy it at all. I actually found it a very odd workout and I don't really understand the point of her Focus series now. From what I can see online (and what I have checked out from … Continue reading Focus: Power Up

Longevity: Staying Power

Staying Power is a 52:30 minute cardio + strength/metabolic workout by Tracie Long. This workout is currently also available to stream on Amazon Prime Video and it's telling me it is free for Prime members though I have not tried to do it that way. This is the first time I noticed that. I checked … Continue reading Longevity: Staying Power

Stronger Longer Volume 2

Stronger Longer Volume 2 is another unique total body strength workout by Tracie Long. In the intro, she says when she turned 46 she felt stiff and didn't move as well as she wanted to. She felt something needed to change and apparently these Stronger Longer workouts address that. In less than a month I … Continue reading Stronger Longer Volume 2

Stronger Longer Volume 1

Stronger Longer Volume 1 is an excellent workout by Tracie Long. This (and Volume 2) are what inspired me to start looking at Tracie Long workouts again. I checked out one of her workouts several years ago (Figure 30: Hips), hated it and never bothered with her again. Recently I was perusing the library's workout DVDs when I … Continue reading Stronger Longer Volume 1

Focus: Lift Higher

Lift Higher is the first workout in Tracie Long's Focus series. From what she says in her intro, it appears she originally created 4 thirty minute workouts in the Focus series and if you use all 4 of them in a week, you will take care of everything. So far I have also done Kickback … Continue reading Focus: Lift Higher

Longevity: Defining Shape

Defining Shape is a 49 minute total body strength workout from Tracie Long and it is part of her Longevity Series. This DVD has two premixes which are broken down at the bottom of this review. This is another of Tracie's workouts I checked out from the library. I am trying out all of her workouts … Continue reading Longevity: Defining Shape

Focus: Kickback

I have only done one other Tracie Long workout: Figure 30: Hips, and I did not like it at all so I never bothered with any other Tracie Long workouts. But my library carries a lot of Tracie Long workouts. Every time I go to the library, I always peruse their workout DVD selection. Well, two … Continue reading Focus: Kickback

Figure 30: Hips

Figure 30: Hips was purchased in my attempt to take better care of myself. Yes, I exercise every day and push myself hard, but sometimes I think that is a problem--I am focused on the wrong things. It's not all about how heavy I can deadlift and how high I can tuck jump--there is also … Continue reading Figure 30: Hips
