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. I found this a very tough workout--tougher than I expected it to be. Yesterday was Black Friday and my husband … Continue reading Barlates: Torch & Tone/Slide

Barlates: Metabolic Training/Functional

Functional is another excellent workout in Linda @ Barlates Metabolic Training Series. All of the workouts in this series hit the lower body hard and this one is no exception. This workout conditions many other muscle groups, too--biceps, triceps, back, shoulders and core. I say "conditioned" because it is more high rep/low weight work, so … Continue reading Barlates: Metabolic Training/Functional

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

Low Impact Cardio for Beginners

Low Impact Cardio for Beginners is another metabolic cardio workout from Heather Robertson. This one caught my eye because of the word "beginners" in the title. Not because I am a beginner but because I am looking for a Heather Robertson workout I can do after my surgery (in 2 days!). I need something that … Continue reading Low Impact Cardio for Beginners

Low Impact // Full Body HIIT Workout

Low Impact // Full Body HIIT Workout is a short metabolic strength workout from Heather Robertson. I paired it with her No Repeat HIIT Workout with Weights, which is also metabolic, and got an intense total body workout. You just cannot go wrong with a Heather Robertson workout. I loved it, of course. I love … Continue reading Low Impact // Full Body HIIT Workout

Barlates: Torch & Tone/Box

Torch & Tone: Box is a fun little cardio kickboxing workout from Linda @ Barlates. I actually purchased her Torch & Tone Series and her Metabolic Training Series DVDs and had planned to do all of the workouts on both DVDs this month. Then I discovered Heather Robertson and all of that was put on … Continue reading Barlates: Torch & Tone/Box

30 Minutes to Fitness: Cardio Sculpt Overload

Cardio Sculpt Overload is a new workout from Kelly Coffey-Meyer. Though it is in her 30 Minutes to Fitness series, it is set up differently than most of her other 30 Minutes to Fitness workouts, which usually contain two 30 minute workouts. This DVD contains one workout which is set up in circuit fashion. One … Continue reading 30 Minutes to Fitness: Cardio Sculpt Overload

Barlates Fusion Flow Box Set

Barlates: Fusion Flow is a box set that collects 3 of Linda @ Barlates DVDs together. Each DVD has 4 workouts on it, so this box set contains 12 workouts. I love Linda's box sets but this one (so far) is my absolute favorite. Linda considers all of these workouts easier than her usual offerings. … Continue reading Barlates Fusion Flow Box Set

Barlates: Energy Flow/Functional

Energy Flow: Functional is a tough workout! Possibly the most advanced of all of Linda @ Barlates new flow workouts. My legs felt weak afterwards. I even used some of her modifications and it still wore me out! I did another short lower body workout afterwards that was much easier, but it still challenged me … Continue reading Barlates: Energy Flow/Functional
