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

Ultimate 5 Day Walk Plan

Ultimate 5 Day Walk Plan is another Leslie Sansone DVD I got for $1 at the yearly library sale. Its a pretty neat concept. The DVD contains 5 one mile walks that she labels with colors (blue, yellow, green, purple and red), plus it contains 4 very short and basic strength segments (abs, arms, legs, … Continue reading Ultimate 5 Day Walk Plan

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

3 Mega Miles

At this year's library sale, I bought a bunch of Leslie Sansone workouts for $1 each. I love Jessica Smith's walking workouts so much, I decided that I should try Leslie's to compare. And if I like them, I have even more walking workouts to choose from. So I bought 5 of her walking DVDs. … Continue reading 3 Mega Miles

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

Peace, Love & Cardio

Peace, Love & Cardio is another Ellen Barrett workout I checked out from the library. It is a very gentle cardio fusion workout. It is not entirely low impact unless you are following the modifier. It's still gentle, even with the bit of impact. This is definitely a feel good workout and much easier than … Continue reading Peace, Love & Cardio
