Kitchen Sink Conditioning

I bought this workout DVD partially for the title alone. Kitchen Sink Conditioning. What an odd and somewhat humorous title! And since it is by Patrick Goudeau, it deserved further evaluation. I did more research and, just as it sounds, it is based on the idiom "everything but the kitchen sink"--as in, this workout uses … Continue reading Kitchen Sink Conditioning

Turn Up and Slim Down

Turn Up and Slim Down is Patrick Goudeau's latest workout DVD. It is a cardio and body weight strength training workout broken down into 10 minute segments. So you can do all 6 segments + warm up and cool down for a 69 minute workout or pick and choose to create the workout of your … Continue reading Turn Up and Slim Down

Play Ball

I really wanted to love this workout by Patrick Goudeau. Play Ball is described as a "30-minute total body blast [that] is jam-packed with fun" and all you need is a medicine ball. Well, I have 3 medicine balls--2 eight pounders and 1 four pounder that don't get enough play. And the fact that it is … Continue reading Play Ball

Body Weight Blast

Wow! Another winner by Patrick Goudeau and I think this one is my new favorite! It is tough, fun and signature Patrick metabolic strength training. I think this is his best one yet. Don't let the title Body Weight Blast fool you--this is not a body weight only workout. In fact, he uses heavier dumbbells … Continue reading Body Weight Blast

Hard Work Conditioning (1)

Now, I will admit, I do not own a vast library of Patrick Goudeau workouts, but of the ones I do own, I’ve come expect something from him: a brutal and taxing workout. So with the title of Hard Work Conditioning (and after doing Hard Work Conditioning 2) I was expecting some seriously hard work. … Continue reading Hard Work Conditioning (1)

Extreme Calorie Burn

The title snagged my attention, then I saw it was by Patrick Goudeau and knew that it was probably an accurate title! Patrick can burn the fat off anyone with his intense metabolic weight training workouts. I am working on building a solid collection of advanced metabolic weight training workouts and of course Patrick will … Continue reading Extreme Calorie Burn

Hard Work Conditioning 2

Wow! That title is no joke! This is the second Patrick Goudeau workout I've done (Kickbox Burn doesn't really count because it's really Heather Corndorf) and it is hard work. I own Hard Work Conditioning 1 but haven't done it yet, so I cannot compare at this time--but Hard Work Conditioning 2 earns its name! … Continue reading Hard Work Conditioning 2

Kickbox Burn

What a find! Kickbox Burn was recommended to me by a reader of this blog and wow, am I grateful! Patrick Goudeau is a new find for me (tho he has been around for a while) but this workout is a little different. He doesn't lead it. In fact, the top of the DVD says … Continue reading Kickbox Burn

Lean, Hot Body

Wow. This workout is crazy intense. Patrick Goudeau is another new-to-me trainer and that man is a machine! This is an advanced metabolic strength training + HIIT workout with no down time. None. Your recovery is moving on to the next very challenging move. I really liked this workout. It is put together well with … Continue reading Lean, Hot Body
