Barlates: Target 15/Standing Abs

I am 5 days post surgery and I have started exercising again. I have the usual limitations--no weights/resistance, no impact and no plank based moves. So I have to be creative to get an effective workout. This morning I did Cathe's Low Impact Step Lower Body Blast premix and finished the workout off with this … Continue reading Barlates: Target 15/Standing Abs

Barlates: Warm & Stretch with Ball

I love Linda's Warm & Stretch workouts! They are perfect to combine with my Sunday yoga workouts. Lately I have been doing Classical Stretch on Sundays and I use the Warm & Stretch workouts to finish it off. I keep expecting the Warm & Stretch workouts to be lower intensity than Classical Stretch but I didn't break … Continue reading Barlates: Warm & Stretch with Ball

Cardio/Kettlebell Mash Up

Cardio/Kettlebell Mash Up is an interval workout that alternates kettlebell exercises with cardio exercises. The workout ends with some lower body and core work using the stability ball. Since kettlebell work is very metabolic anyway, this is non-stop cardio. Yet another workout from Yvette Bachman that I absolutely love. It is more of a moderate … Continue reading Cardio/Kettlebell Mash Up

Bootcamp/Bodyweight HIIT Workout

Bootcamp/Bodyweight HIIT workout is yet another awesome workout from Yvette Bachman. I loved this one! I know, I say that about all of Yvette's workouts but there are different levels of love and this one is up there in the top levels. Just like all of her workouts, this was intense, however, it was slightly … Continue reading Bootcamp/Bodyweight HIIT Workout

Fit Body by Julia: PHAT #3

With PHAT #3 I have now done all of Julia's PHAT workouts (though they were all created by Jori, Julia performs them on her YouTube channel Fit Body by Julia and makes some modifications to Jori's workout). Like all of the PHAT workouts I really enjoyed this. It was an excellent total body metabolic strength … Continue reading Fit Body by Julia: PHAT #3

Barlates: Barre Ball Blast

Barre Ball Blast is a collection of primarily lower body and core segments that use nothing but the stability ball and a mat--so body weight training. There are 6 segments plus a warm up and stretch. You can choose "Play all" for a 115 minute workout, or use one of the premixes that group segments … Continue reading Barlates: Barre Ball Blast

All About Legs

All About Legs is a collection of 4 short workouts that each work your lower body using various equipment--medicine ball, stability ball, step + resistance tube and sliding disks. 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

Barlates: Back Strength

As mentioned in the review for Linda's Cardio Interval Tone 45/30, I created a fat Barlates playlist on YouTube. This workout was at the top of the list. I love to work my back and I think it is one of the most important muscle groups to spend extra time on. So when I saw … Continue reading Barlates: Back Strength

Cathe Workout Blender

This review is a little different from many of my other reviews. First let me explain what Workout Blender is, for people who don't know. For $19.97 a month you can join Cathe's On Demand streaming service. What this entails is access to every single Cathe workout that is available on DVD--all ready to stream … Continue reading Cathe Workout Blender

Cathe Live: Keep the Cardio Coming

Keep the Cardio Coming is an intense all cardio workout. And for a Cathe Live cardio workout, it is long. It is even long for Cathe's more current DVD cardio workouts! Cathe used to do lots of hour long DVD cardio workouts (some even longer than an hour--Maximum Intensity Cardio), but those days are over unless … Continue reading Cathe Live: Keep the Cardio Coming
