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


Cardio Back & Bicep Burn

I am feeling much better this morning so I was thrilled to actually enjoy my workout again! I didn't take Nyquil last night so that wasn't dragging me down this morning either. This morning was Cardio Back & Bicep Burn by Yvette Bachman. This is one of her newer workouts and I knew from the … Continue reading Cardio Back & Bicep Burn

Fat Burning Cardio/Core Mashup

Fat Burning Cardio/Core Mashup is a fun and intense workout that alternates core work with cardio intervals and you use lots of equipment. About 40 minutes into the workout you get a short water break and when you return, you also add in some shoulder strength work, in addition to the cardio and core work. … Continue reading Fat Burning Cardio/Core Mashup

Cardio Kickbox/Bootcamp

Wow! What a workout! A reader recommended this trainer to me: Yvette Bachman. She owns a studio in Iowa and teaches fitness classes. About 3 months ago she started posting full length workouts. So I had a look and was immediately impressed. I could tell right away that I would really like her workouts but, … Continue reading Cardio Kickbox/Bootcamp

Barlates: Glide Standing Lower

Glide Standing Lower is part of Linda Wooldridge's Fit in 5 Series and it is free on YouTube. It is the second workout in that series that I've done. The first one was Glide Cardio Sculpt which I really enjoyed. I liked this workout, too, but not nearly as much as Glide Cardio Sculpt. This … Continue reading Barlates: Glide Standing Lower

Barlates: Glide Cardio Sculpt

Glide Cardio Sculpt is part of Linda Wooldridge's Fit in 5 Series and it is available for free on YouTube.

But I had to work it into my rotation so I didn't … Continue reading Barlates: Glide Cardio Sculpt

Each segment can be used alone since they all start with an easy move that functions as a warm up and they all end with a short stretch. … Continue reading All About Legs

Gliding Extreme

Just as the title implies this is an extreme workout. It is advanced and it is tough. BTW--I loved it. Excellent, excellent workout from Mindy Mylrea. Gliding Extreme is set outside in a meadow. There is a large round platform set in the grass and Mindy does all of her sliding on this platform. It's just Mindy--no … Continue reading Gliding Extreme

Total Body Double G Workout

Finally! Another Mindy Mylrea workout I enjoyed! I was disappointed in her last two that I tried and was starting to worry. This is another of the many Mindy workouts I got at her $3.99 sale. The big draw of that sale for me was her medicine ball and gliding disk workouts and, since this one combined … Continue reading Total Body Double G Workout
