Focus: Lift Higher

Lift Higher is the first workout in Tracie Long's Focus series. From what she says in her intro, it appears she originally created 4 thirty minute workouts in the Focus series and if you use all 4 of them in a week, you will take care of everything. So far I have also done Kickback … Continue reading Focus: Lift Higher

The Firm: Tight Buns & Killer Legs

Tight Buns & Killer Legs is one of the Firm's pink workouts. It is not part of the original CardioWeight system but since it uses the CardioWeights it must have been an add on (I don't remember; the Firm used to be an autobuy for me). It is led by Trainer Kelsie Daniels. This is … Continue reading The Firm: Tight Buns & Killer Legs

The Firm: Jiggle Free Buns

Jiggle Free Buns is part of The Firm's TransFirmer system. It is led by Pam Cauthen Mariwether. Not counting Express Total Body Shaping, I always found Pam's workouts some of the tougher Firm workouts and this one is no exception. I recall this one and Super-Charged Sculpting from my Firm days and they both always managed … Continue reading The Firm: Jiggle Free Buns

Belly, Butt and Thighs

Belly, Butt and Thighs is another Prevention workout led by Chris Freytag. I got it a long time ago as part of a 2 DVD set--it was paired with Chris's 3-2-1 Workout which will be reviewed here soon. As of this posting, it is cheaper btw to buy the two pack then to buy this … Continue reading Belly, Butt and Thighs

Barlates: Bodyweight Basics Lower

I thought, by the title (Bodyweight Basics Lower), this might be more my speed. I don't have a problem with Linda's Beginner Interval workouts right now, but her Endurance 90 Lower killed me. I thought--maybe this will be easier than Endurance 90 Lower. And it probably is easier. But chemo is really tearing me down … Continue reading Barlates: Bodyweight Basics Lower

JessicaSmithTV: Lower Body: Hips & Glutes Focus

This is a great little lower body workout from Jessica Smith--and free on YouTube! I did it after doing one of Jessica's 15 minute DVD cardio walks and it seemed like it actually worked my lower body very well. I was definitely getting some burn in my glutes. Peanut is there for the entire workout, … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: Lower Body: Hips & Glutes Focus

JessicaSmithTV: Leg Day

The name of this video is actually Legs, Butt, Hips & Thighs Workout but one of the first things Jessica says at the beginning of the workout is that it is Leg Day. Plus that is the first thing she writes in the workout description. I like the sound of that for a workout title, … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: Leg Day

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
