JessicaSmithTV: Feel Good Fusion

Feel Good Fusion is one of Jessica Smith's sneaky workouts. It seemed like it would be easy, but as the workout progressed, I found myself working harder than I thought I was! But it's still not a difficult or advanced workout. It does feel good. You are working your muscles, and you feel it, but … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: Feel Good Fusion

JessicaSmithTV: Cardio Core Fusion Flow

Cardio Core Fusion Flow is a cardio conditioning workout from Jessica Smith using sliding devices. I was challenged during parts of this workout. Peanut is much more energetic then she usually is. She decides she wants Jessica's sliding devices as her chew toys. Halfway through, Peanut suddenly disappears. Jessica had to stop filming and get … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: Cardio Core Fusion Flow

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

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: Energy Flow/Functional

Energy Flow: Functional is a tough workout! Possibly the most advanced of all of Linda @ Barlates new flow workouts. My legs felt weak afterwards. I even used some of her modifications and it still wore me out! I did another short lower body workout afterwards that was much easier, but it still challenged me … Continue reading Barlates: Energy Flow/Functional

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

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
