BodyStrikes Vol 2

Another tough lower body conditioning workout by Ilaria Montagnani. This one is much more advanced than Vol 1 and I enjoyed it a lot more than I remembered. This is another one I haven't done in years and what stood out in my memory about it is that I liked Vol 1 a lot better. … Continue reading BodyStrikes Vol 2

BodyStrikes Vol 1

I haven't done this workout in years and I don't know why (other than the obvious fact I have an excessive amount of workout DVDs therefore it is hard to do them all regularly). I remember loving it and, doing it again, I still love it! Another amazing workout from Ilaria Montagnani. Ilaria creates unique, … Continue reading BodyStrikes Vol 1

Atletica Vol. 2

Ilaria Montagnani has come out with several new workouts. Because of my Cathe obsession it has taken me a while to get to them, but I'm working on it! Today was Atletica Vol. 2. I'm surprised it took me this long because I loved Atletica Vol. 1, but it did. Atletica Vol. 2 is very … Continue reading Atletica Vol. 2

Atletica 4: Body Weight Training

Atletica 4 is another tough and unique workout by Ilaria Montagnani. This one is only 30 minutes but she burns you out in that short amount of time. Prior to 2012, Ilaria only had one Atletica (Atletica Vol 1) workout available and I love it. However in 2012 she came out with a flush of … Continue reading Atletica 4: Body Weight Training

Ilaria Montagnani’s PowerStrike (4)

Ilaria Montagnani's PowerStrike is a 58 minute kickboxing workout; 6 minute warm up, 48 minute training time and 4 minute cool down/stretch. The “4” in parenthesis is because it is not clear exactly where this PowerStrike falls in the DVD chronology. It’s titled as straight PowerStrike, which would imply it is the first Powerstrike, but … Continue reading Ilaria Montagnani’s PowerStrike (4)

Ilaria’s PowerStrike Kickboxing 6

Ilaria Montagnani’s PowerStrike 6 is a 49 minute kickboxing workout; 5 minute warm up, 42 minute training time and 2 minute cool down/stretch.  I love Ilaria’s kickboxing workouts—actually I love all of her workouts that I own. I own many other kickboxing and kickboxing inspired workouts, but Ilaria’s feel like REAL kickboxing. Intense and advanced. … Continue reading Ilaria’s PowerStrike Kickboxing 6

Ilaria’s Atletica

Atletica is a 52 minute strength workout; 4 minute warm up, 45 minute training time and 3 minute cool down. I own all of Ilaria Montagnani’s kickboxing workouts and love them. This is the first strength workout of her’s I’ve done and today was the first time I did it. Atletica is a kettlebell inspired … Continue reading Ilaria’s Atletica
