Cathe Live Heavy Weight Rotation

I am so enamored of the "heavy weight" live workouts Cathe has created that I decided to create a rotation using them. In order to get measurable strength results, I needed to return to these workouts on a regular basis, which I had not been doing. So I decided to create a 6 week rotation. … Continue reading Cathe Live Heavy Weight Rotation

Daily Burn

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, when states started their shelter in place orders, Daily Burn did a really great thing. They increased their 30 day free trial to 60 days.

URX-MT: Metabolic Cardio and Yogic Intervals

Workout #5: Metabolic Cardio and Yogic Intervals is rebounder workout led by trainer Greg Sims and it is part of the URX-MT fitness program. This was a deceptive workout. The first 4 minutes of this workout is push ups. FOUR MINUTES. That is the harbinger that this will not be an easy workout. But then … Continue reading URX-MT: Metabolic Cardio and Yogic Intervals

Xtend Barre

Unlike many other streaming sites, Openfit did not offer anything special when shelter in place became a thing. I was pretty disappointed because of all the streaming sites out there, I was most interested in sampling Openfit due to its Xtend Barre workouts. All it offered was its normal 14 day free trial. I almost … Continue reading Xtend Barre
