Default UPDATED "ULTIMATE GUIDE TO CATHE'S WORKOUTS"

Thank you to everyone who scored the new Hardcore workouts so that the user rankings (originally compiled by the lovely Sabine) could be updated.

I list below all of Cathe’s workouts categorized and ranked from easiest to hardest, using a scale of 1 to 10. This should be of benefit to anyone considering future purchases of Cathe’s workouts.

Some notes on the rankings:

The rankings were compiled by taking an average of everyone’s responses for each workout. These averages are based on the responses of approximately 25-30 users.

The focus of ranking is on workout intensity as opposed to complexity

1 = A workout that is quite easy and well suited to beginners
5 = A workout that is not easy, not hard and well suited to intermediate exercisers
10 = A workout that has an 'OH MY GOSH' factor, is very intense, and challenges even the most advanced exerciser

WORKOUT RANKINGS:

Total Body Weight Workouts

• Get in Shape for Your Wedding (weight portion only)- 3.44
• Push Pull- 5.54
