Barlates: Target 15/Squats & Raises

Target 15: Squats & Raises is an excellent little mini workout from Linda @ Barlates. The title means you are doing 15 exercises to "target" a specific area. You are also doing 15 sixty second intervals with no rest/recovery periods, so the workout is 15 minutes. I really enjoyed this workout. There are no complicated … Continue reading Barlates: Target 15/Squats & Raises

Barlates: Torch & Tone/Slide

Torch & Tone: Slide is another lower body and core workout from Linda @ Barlates. It is primarily metabolic lower body work, but there is a lot of plank work which works your core hard.

Barlates: Torch & Tone/Cardio Sculpt

Torch & Tone: Cardio Sculpt is a kind of unusual workout. Maybe not for Linda @ Barlates, since she does put together some unusual workouts, but I found it rather unusual. It is effective tho. No doubt about that. I had muscle burn out multiple times. This is one of Linda's longer workouts, clocking in … Continue reading Barlates: Torch & Tone/Cardio Sculpt

Barlates: Metabolic Training/Box Sculpt

Metabolic Training: Box Sculpt is a tough workout from Linda @ Barlates! And my glutes are still very sore from her Metabolic Training: Cardio Sculpt! This workout hits them again. This is a cardio + strength workout but, just like Cardio Sculpt, it does not hit every muscle group--so it's not a total body workout. … Continue reading Barlates: Metabolic Training/Box Sculpt

Barlates: Metabolic Training/Cardio Sculpt

/Metabolic Training: Cardio Sculpt is cardio + strength lower body focused workout from Linda @ Barlates.

Barlates: Target 15/Standing Abs

I am 5 days post surgery and I have started exercising again. I have the usual limitations--no weights/resistance, no impact and no plank based moves. So I have to be creative to get an effective workout. This morning I did Cathe's Low Impact Step Lower Body Blast premix and finished the workout off with this … Continue reading Barlates: Target 15/Standing Abs

Barlates: Torch & Tone/Box
