Signature Series Vol 2

Signature Series Volume 2 is Tracie Long's other new workout. I did Volume 1 on Tuesday and felt it was an excellent total body strength and mobility workout. Volume 2 is even more impressive than Volume 1. Vol 2 is also much more challenging. I feel like Tracie's Signature Series is a continuation of her Stronger … Continue reading Signature Series Vol 2

Signature Series Vol 1

Signature Series Volume 1 is one of Tracie Long's new workouts. I meant to get to it a lot sooner but it didn't ship when she had initially said it would and by the time it finally shipped, I was in the midst of my 2 months of Cathe Live. But that is over now … Continue reading Signature Series Vol 1

Cathe Live: Low Impact Cardio Compound Training

#244 Low Impact Cardio Compound Training is an awesome workout! Not sure exactly how to classify it but I used it as cardio conditioning rather than strength and it was intense. Short but intense. I got more intense cardio from some of the compound strength moves than I did from the cardio moves! And no … Continue reading Cathe Live: Low Impact Cardio Compound Training

Cathe Live: Strong Express Upper Body

#234 Strong Express Upper Body is a fast paced upper body strength workout. Cathe works your upper body hard in a short amount of time. I needed something quick this morning so this worked perfectly. However, I do feel that this workout is unbalanced. Cathe hits the shoulders, biceps and triceps harder than the chest … Continue reading Cathe Live: Strong Express Upper Body

Cathe Live: Low Impact HIIT Plus Upper Body

#175 Low Impact HIIT Plus Upper Body is a great idea and a very good workout. I wanted to like it more than I did. The workout starts with a very active warm up then you do 21:30 minutes of low impact HIIT cardio. The remainder of the workout is upper body strength and core. … Continue reading Cathe Live: Low Impact HIIT Plus Upper Body

Cathe Live: All In Upper Body

#276 All In Upper Body is another excellent and intense strength workout. The key phrase for this workout is "partial reps." Cathe adds partial reps to many of the exercises to completely burn out whatever muscle group she is working. I also love how this is all upper body--nothing else. I don't have a problem with … Continue reading Cathe Live: All In Upper Body

Cathe Live: Low Impact Step Bootcamp

#195 Low Impact Step Bootcamp is a metabolic cardio + strength workout. Cathe says this is an intermediate level work. You can increase the intensity by having your step at a higher level, using heavier dumbbells and/or a heavier resistance tube. I don't know... as presented, this workout didn't seem any less intense or any … Continue reading Cathe Live: Low Impact Step Bootcamp

Cathe Live: Lower Body – Upper Body Dumbbell Challenge

#220 Lower Body - Upper Body Dumbbell Challenge is a super tough and intense total body strength workout. The first half of the workout is metabolic lower body, so you will get cardio with your strength work, then you move to upper body which is still intense and fast paced. Your heart rate will still … Continue reading Cathe Live: Lower Body – Upper Body Dumbbell Challenge

Cathe Live: Metabolic Burn

#170 Metabolic Burn is a tough metabolic strength workout. I am using Cathe's live metabolic workouts as cardio/conditioning workouts rather than as strength workouts but this one nevertheless work all of my muscles very nicely. I was working very hard in this workout. And Cathe hits you right out the gate with sliding push up … Continue reading Cathe Live: Metabolic Burn

Cathe Live: Ramped Up Total Body

#281 Ramped Up Total Body is another excellent total body strength workout from Cathe. I feel well worked after finishing this workout--especially my lower body. The ball work at the end fried my legs! You do 4 circuits and each circuit consists of 7 exercises--or at least that is what Cathe said would happen at the … Continue reading Cathe Live: Ramped Up Total Body
