Fat Burning HIIT Workout // with Weights

Fat Burning HIIT Workout with Weights is another tough and intense metabolic strength training workout from Heather Robertson. I was working hard! It isn't a total body workout but close. Heather hits everything except your triceps and back. But what she does hit, she works well. This workout includes a warm up but not a … Continue reading Fat Burning HIIT Workout // with Weights

Low Impact HIIT Workout With Weights // No Jumping

Low Impact HIIT Workout With Weights // No Jumping is great little total body workout from Heather Robertson. Though it is in the title, I wouldn't call this a HIIT workout--its not quite that intense--but it is very metabolic. Heather manages to hit every muscle group in your body in just 20 minutes, too. So … Continue reading Low Impact HIIT Workout With Weights // No Jumping

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 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
