Cathe Live Heavy Weight Rotation

I am so enamored of the "heavy weight" live workouts Cathe has created that I decided to create a rotation using them. In order to get measurable strength results, I needed to return to these workouts on a regular basis, which I had not been doing. So I decided to create a 6 week rotation. … Continue reading Cathe Live Heavy Weight Rotation

Class of 2012 is another Classical Stretch/Essentrics workout that is led by Sahra Esmond-White.

Naomi Joy Fitness: Rebounder Workout with Weights

I just discovered Naomi Joy's rebounder workouts and they look awesome! Unfortunately, I discovered them just as I am getting ready to start 9 weeks of structured and planned out strength workouts.

Tae Bo: Billy’s Ultimate Bootcamp

Ultimate Bootcamp appears to be Billy Blank's first (or one of his first) bootcamp workouts. The other 2 Billy Bootcamp workouts I've already reviewed were released the year after this one. This workout uses something Billy calls "special op bands." They look just like the Billy Bands in Billy's Bootcamp Elite Mission One and Mission … Continue reading Tae Bo: Billy’s Ultimate Bootcamp

Cathe Live: Low Impact Cardio Muscle

#292 Low Impact Cardio Muscle is another awesome total body metabolic strength workout from Cathe Live. This one is a cardio + strength workout in which Cathe alternates several compound strength exercises with a cardio exercise.

Essentrics: Barre Workout

Essentrics: Barre Workout is led by Sahra Esmonde-White. I've been looking forward to doing a workout by Sahra. Her mother, Miranda Esmonde-White is the creator of Classical Stretch/Essentrics. I was charmed by Sahra. She did not remind me of her mother at all at first, but then, sometimes her mannerisms or the manner in which … Continue reading Essentrics: Barre Workout

Cathe Live: Touch Up Training Total Body

#294 Touch Up Training Total Body is the 3rd and final Touch Up Training workout from Cathe Live. Actually, it was the first one she created so I did the workouts out of order. The other two are #296 Touch Up Training Upper Body and #298 Touch Up Training Lower Body. All 3 are excellent … Continue reading Cathe Live: Touch Up Training Total Body

This workout is part of Tracie Long's Focus Series. She says it is the 4th in the series and there is a total of 6 workouts in this series (I think).
