Cathe Live: Lower Body Confusion

#203 Lower Body Confusion was recommended to me by a blog reader when I was still subscribed to Cathe Live. I only subscribed for 2 months and was unable to get to it but since I felt compelled to purchase the download of Cathe's Live Total Body Fit and I had to spend at least … Continue reading Cathe Live: Lower Body Confusion

Cathe Live: Lower Body Barre and Weights

#239 Lower Body Barre and Weights is an incredibly intense, incredibly thorough and incredibly comprehensive lower body workout. It was also brutal. My legs were very fatigued well before the workout was over and right now, an hour later (when I first record my thoughts) they feel weak and are still humming. And currently, when … Continue reading Cathe Live: Lower Body Barre and Weights

Cathe Live: Fit Tower Light Total Body

#210 Fit Tower Light Total Body is another tough live workout using Cathe's Fit Tower. I had initially planned to do all of the Live Fit Tower workouts but then was warned that this one had no back work so I probably wouldn't be interested in it. I agreed and took it off my "to do" list. … Continue reading Cathe Live: Fit Tower Light Total Body

Barlates: Overload Training

Overload Training contains 4 workouts from Linda @ Barlates. These workouts are not available for free on YouTube. You can purchase them on Amazon, Total Fitness DVDs or as DVDs or downloads from Linda's website. The idea behind these workouts is that you "overload" whatever muscle group Linda is focusing on, working it to full fatigue before … Continue reading Barlates: Overload Training

JessicaSmithTV: Lunge Free Lower Body Workout

As I mentioned in my post about Jessica Smith's 1 Mile Belly, Buns & Thigh Walk, I am getting back to working out today but starting slow with short, low impact and lower body focused workouts. So I started with Jessica's 15 minute walk and finished with this 15 minute barre workout. This wasn't the … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: Lunge Free Lower Body Workout

Barlates: Standing Barre Abs

Linda Wooldridge has created 5 workouts that she calls Standing Barre Series. They are all available for free on YouTube and you can also get all 5 workouts on a single DVD. I plan to try at least 4 of her Standing Barre workouts and Standing Barre Abs is the first one I am trying. … Continue reading Barlates: Standing Barre Abs

Barlates: Stretch Flex Tone Lower

Stretch Flex Tone Lower is a workout that I purchased directly from Linda Wooldridge via her website. She also has a series DVD that has 3 Stretch Flex Tone workouts but since I was only interested in the lower body workout, that's all I ordered. FYI--when you order directly from Linda, she will put multiple … Continue reading Barlates: Stretch Flex Tone Lower

Barlates: Stretch Sculpt Lower

Wow! What a workout! I didn't know what to expect from the title Stretch Sculpt Lower but from past experience of doing Linda's workouts, I suspected it would not be a gentle stretching routine. And it wasn't! Linda describes it as "lengthening and strengthening" your lower body. I'll be honest, I didn't see any real … Continue reading Barlates: Stretch Sculpt Lower

JessicaSmithTV: Kickboxing Ballet

Kickboxing Ballet is 29 minutes long; 45 second intro. The warm up is about 3 minutes and, since the workout starts with the ballet/barre portion of the workout--that is what the warm up consists of: gentle dynamic ballet type of moves. Then you go into some more aggressive (but not difficult) ballet/barre work, then you … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: Kickboxing Ballet
