    Grateful - a bit personal & long.

    Hi Cathe and Crew - both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. This new series came at a time in my life when I really needed it. I had another "ding dang" medical issue this past Spring and it set me physically back to square one. I've recovered from injuries before and those were...

    More just stretching with the new science behind it

    As I get older I find I need to have more stretching but I don't mean after a cool down and a lengthening of the muscles and release of Lactic Acid. I don't have a physical fitness background and don't know what to call it ... but something to add on at the end or do a 40 to 60min on a recovery...

I can't do the RHiit cardio with another add on cardio from another series to make the workout about an hour. I barely survive the RHiit cardio and the stretch - let alone adding on anything else. I can...

    Ripped Hiit ? Every day ok? Why?

I thought it wasn't good to do Hiit or Tabata type workouts more than a few times a week. Is RHiit ok because it's different body parts even thought they are all Hiit? I trust...
