  • KY & Body Fusion. This little WO - and actually the whole DVD it’s part of - is a bit of an unsung hero. So versatile. I plan to use this DVD to get back to an 8” step height injury free.
    KY & Cross Train Xpress Kickboxing (skipped biceps) I’m having so much fun rediscovering these old workouts!

    Ahhhhhh! I have several yoga tapes...er approx 51+ .... I never seem to have time to do them, I do those after my workouts. Do you do 10m? 30min? an hour?

    Generally 25-45 minutes a day but on a rare occasion longer or even more rare shorter. I often match my KY to my WOs. For instance a thyroid or heart centered practice is often somewhat arm intensive so is a great UB warm-up. Likewise there are kriyas that are nice for a LB day.

    There are great kriyas to use after an intense core day or for an over all tune up. KY has played a major part in the healing of my ruptured discs and avoiding surgery. Now Cathe’s DVDs are taking me the next step.
    Yesterday was rest so I did 40 minutes of KY meditation and chanting.

    Today was KY followed by Cardio & Weights on a 6” step. I know, no biggie for most but it’s huge for me. The jumping went well. No issues with neck or back.

    I love this WO! By the time I finish I’m on such a high. That gets me through the abs and then the stretch chills me out.
    Yesterday I did KY and Callanetics 10 in 10 as my LB and Core day. Today I did Cathe’s Low Impact Step. It’s silly but I was impossibly excited to use a 6” Step for the entire WO and not have any back or neck pain.

    Wow Great job! I've stayed away from Step for fear of knee pain, but today went well.

    That’s great Lucia. A lot of my concern is fear of reinjuring myself but my confidence grows a bit with every workout.
    Today I did KY and Kick, Punch & Crunch. Forgot how much I enjoy this one!

    That one is coming up on my rotation as soon as I'm up to doing a Cathe Cardio.. haha I have to get in shape to work out with her.

    You’ll get there! About 8.5 months ago my goal was to accumulate 2 miles of walking a day in 10 minute sessions because I had severely injured my neck. Cathe’s Beginner Cardio was so helpful in getting me to this point. I can’t thank her enough for keeping those DVDs available for purchase.
    Yesterday was a rest day. Today I did Low Impact Circuit for the first time. So much fun! I loved the entire thing.
    Wednesday: KY, Callanetics Hips & Rear, Spinning Intervals. Thursday: KY, Callanetics UB & Core, PHA 3 - I enjoyed this the least of the three. I think I’ll try my own music next time & maybe a pre-Mix
    Today: KY, Callanetics Wind Down & Spinning Intervals.
    Yesterday, KY and a walk in the sunshine. Today, KY, Callanetics UB & Core, my own favorite UB Giant Sets. It went way better than I expected. I’m definitely getting back to my old self.

    I bet you get some great walks up there in the Whites! My DH did a thru hike of the Appalachian Trail a few years back and really enjoyed that stretch.

    Yes, our home is in an old growth hardwood forest. Loads of space between homes so we are socially distanced by nature. ;) We feel lucky to live in this area.
    KY, Callanetics Wake Up, TM intervals yesterday, KY Callanetics Sandra’s Quick Session 1, Strong and Sweaty UB Time Saver today.
    KY and PHA Training - I loved this one too. Worried a little about doing three rounds but it flew by!
    Kundalini Yoga, Callanetics Core Assets UB and Step Sync Time Saver #1. This was a great active recovery day.
    I tried PHA 2 for the first time today and really liked it! Can’t wait to try the other PHA workouts.

    Nanbo, is there any particular way you weave them into your schedule? Yesterday was LB day. The day before I did a Cathe boxing premix instead of UB weights so PH2 fit the plan.

    @Lannette , sorry for the late response! I try to follow one of Cathe's rotations (I get better results with her plans); sometimes I substitute and swap workouts like using PHA3 if I want more cardio when PHA2 is on the rotation. I think PHA2 hits the legs a bit more than PHA1, so I would make that swap if I need more attention to legs (similar to your approach).

    Thanks for the reply. No worries about time. I’ll have to check out Cathe’s rotations. I found following her Beginner rotation to be extremely helpful in getting my strength back. I appreciate the suggestion and your thoughts on the PHA WOs.
    Today I was scheduled to do Stretching. I did 15 minutes of Kundalini Yoga Flexibility and Cathe’s new extended chair stretch. This was such a nice combo for an active recovery day. I really, really love her chair stretch. Super relaxing.

    I'm gonna have to do that chair stretch, sounds great.
    Cardio and Weights - The whole darn thing! It’s one of my favorites & doing it again is a goal I’ve been working toward since June. Last spring I slightly herniated two of the discs in my neck. At first accumulating 2 miles of gentle walking was a huge achievement. I had to modify the planks and push-ups and I didn’t use more than 8 pound weights just to be safe. It was sooooo much fun.
