Default Which Cathe workout is your nemesis?

Since I started this one, I'll go first:
Cardio - Body Max. The bpm during the step and circuits are so high that I would actually rather do Imax or MIC.
Upperbody - the biceps segment of PUB. Great googly moogly!
Lowerbody - any time Cathe does sit and stands, I cringe.
Core - the walking planks of C&W and the inverted pikes of PUB.

But let's face it - any Cathe workout is a challenge. There are days when even Step Heat seems too tough to tackle. Man Cathe's energy kills me. I can't imagine doing BC or Imax and having to talk the whole way through!?! What an inspiration she is!

Okay - what's your nemesis?

I must admit that the only Cathe workout that I delegated to the shelf with the older Taeobo tapes is Rythmic Step. I found the choreography impossible. However, I since tackled Step Works which I always stayed away from, so I need to give it another chance.

I have, so far, found none of them too intense.

Jillybean:

and yet i read on another post of yours that you ususally do the sit and stands twice through!!! Go figure....

I have to agree with the Body MAx. It injured me once, I haven't done it since, 1 year ago. I too would rather do Imax!!!

Well, so far it's interval l0 in IMAX, but I recently traded for Body Max, and I'm doing it for the first time today. I may be adding a new nemesis to an ever-so-slowly shrinking list.

Well, where do I start? There is interval 9 in IMAX2, then the bicep work in PUB and Power Hour and the inner thigh work on the stability ball in PLB. Rhythmic Step and I are coming along - slowly... ;-)
Planks used to be my nemisis but after a lot of practice I love them! As you say, all Cathe's work outs are a challenge, it's part of what makes them so fun! Susan

I agree with the bicep work on PUB, and Powerhour for that matter--I love both of these but I almost want to cry when bicep work is about to start, cause I know how hard its gonna be!!

I think the terminators in BC are really awful too--I can do the first set just fine, but that second round--count me out!! I guess if I could do all of these, I wouldnt be as excited about the new workouts though.

Have a great weekend
Jayne

PS--I cant muster a wimper during these workouts, I cant imagine having to give encouragement throughout!!!

Hey Jilly,

Nemesis is the right word for my feelings about the hi/lo portion of MIC! I try and try but Imax is easier for me than the hi/lo of MIC!

strength: The biceps sections of PUB and PowerHour

And although I wouldn't consider them a nemesis, I do have my own personal issues with ALL ab work in the new series! I so just got use to "regular" ab work, and now something new to tackle and with a ball no less! :)

I do them twice on PS SL&A but I have never attempted to do them twice on LL because LL leaves me so spent! Isn't Body Max just the toughest tape ever created? Last Sun. I added the 3 intervals from CTX step intervals to the end of Imax 1 and I STILL don't have the courage to do Body Max. I should just buckle down once my current rotation is over and do a Body Max 2x's a week rotation. If I can get through that, I can get through anything! P.S. Does it count as a rotation if I only do it for 1 week? LOL!

Yes Donna - I hear ya on that new ab work! I thought ME's ab work was tough, and then I did C&W! I thought that one was the kicker and then I did PUB's! It just never lets up! And if you do the "All Core" premix on the Boot Camp DVD, well then Ms. Cathe gets you a 4th time! She's lucky she's so cute. Oh, and don't get me started on the MIC hi/lo. It seems like such a huge accomplishment when I'm done with it and then she says, "After this, we still have all that step to do." Great googly moogly!

I would guess my nemesis would be between the pikes on PLU which I try and push myself to do twice as I really want to get good at this. It seems like a really effective move. Also the 9th interval in I Max 2. Sometimes I can get through it all right. Day after a leg day I am doing plie squats without the foot thing before the end. It is definitely a tough interval for me. MIC used to be on the floor work but I have much improved on that. It really depends how I worked out the day before.
