Diane Sue - That Front/Back workout is a really good one, I need to do that one again. I was thinking I might do some Cathe after my break next week, we'll see. I'm still loving Kelly's workouts for now. Nice job on your workouts!! The only thing I'm on media-wise is Twitter.

DOZ - Hope you are getting your workouts in. Isn't it nice out today? Finally out of that humid weather. It actually feels very cool outside. Love it!!

Roselyn - Is that a Cathe live workout?

Jolie - We had fireworks all around us on the 4th, doesn't stop me from sleeping. LOL! I sleep like the dead every night. Last night we had a storm go through and I fell asleep right in the middle of that as well. Have a great workout today!!

Hope you all had a great weekend and workouts next week!! I'll check in when I can.

Debbie, great workout today. I am going to order some Kelly workouts this weekend and join in on the fun. Have a fantastic vacation with your hubby and enjoy your rest, you have been killing it lately!

Diane Sue,
I hope you have a great workout today. It is so hot here today, it is supposed to hit over 110 degrees!!! I have air conditioning in my gym room thank God! I will check back later to see what you do today.

DOZ and Roselyn, I am sure you are killing it today in your workouts.

Happy Friday.

This morning I did Coffey Fit Raw Intervals #2 Circuits. This is actually 38 minutes but took me 47 minutes writing things down and letting my dog out twice!! She was urgent enough to finally head butt me to get me to let her out the second time. She's been acting off this last week. Not sure what it is. Anyway this was 285 calories, heart rate average 118, max 166, 1,876 steps met 5.5. I then did Home Gym Intervals 2 , 37 mutes, heart rate average 121, max 159, met 5.8, 1,544 steps. Total time was 84 minutes, 521 calories.
Home Gym Intervals 2 has 3 cardio segments and kelly does them with no equipment. I used the spin bike for some of it. The rest is all weight and strength segments. I did not write down all of the moves here and need to go back and rewatch it so I can add it to my notebook. She did do a squat thrust to bicep curl, a plank push up knee in, pike push up plank , and some abs at the end. That is what I recall right now. ;)
Raw Intervals #2 Kelly uses 7# dumbbells she goes through this whole sequence twice altering the moves or doing no weights the second time
plank pulls/plank jacks
biceps run curls I used 8# first then 7.5 Bowflex second time
lunge switch 8# first time 5# second time no weight
rope/ jack/ knee/knee
lateral raise/ single lateral raise 7.5#
frog squat/lunge left and right 8# dbs (second time no weight)
upper cuts hop forward and back/just upper cut
triceps extension/ triceps pull to front and overhead into extension 8# dbs
squat pops/ squat heel click 7.5# no weight second time through
curtsy/scales alternating sides used 8# kelly does no weight the second time
plank/star (plank raise arm up to side)
break and repeat all

Debbie, nice work on Muscle Up today. I try to make my workouts shorter when my husband is home. He works out in the mornings too, but is usually done before me. He is off the next 3 days. Enjoy your rest days. I am not sure what I will do tomorrow. Maybe Kelly's Cardio Crush from the YouTube Raw workouts. I just want cardio tomorrow and extra stretching. You are lucky you sleep through things. I sure don't. I thought I heard a beep this morning at four and I think it was the ceiling fan motor.

Jolie, I have air and a large stand fan in my workout room. It is much more exhausting working out when it is hot. Nice job on the workout today.

Hi to Doz:)

Yesterday it was so hot it got to 124 degrees!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is the hottest it has ever been at my house. Today is a cool 112 degrees so I did not workout. My house is cool but to go outside is ridiculous. When I dropped my son off at the beach yesterday at 4pm it was 110 degrees. This weather is so crazy. We are going to the mountains tomorrow to visit my parents, it is cool and we cant wait. No workout because it will be an all day trip. See you on Monday.

Roselyn, I guess I don't remember that workout. I have not done Crossfire for awhile either.

Jolie, that is too hot!! I would not want to do much of anything in that heat. The mountains will be nice.

Have a lovely day.

Jolie, I have lost my posts right in the middle of typing. It ends up being the condesed version when I do it again. The Tabata weights is Kellys newest addition to her streaming. I dont think it is on youtube. I liked it. It was pretty quick without rests.

Roselyn, nice work today on Cathe live.

I ordered a Kelly Coffey Meyer dvd last night off of Amazon. I think it is called Build and Burn. The workouts look fun so I thought i would give it a try.

Today I went for a walk early to beat the heat! I walked 6 miles, 1 hour 55 minutes and I burned 891 calories.
My shoulder is sore again today, I have no idea when I pulled it, but I know it was during my workout. I have some anti inflammatory cream I am putting on it but no change as of yet.


Diane Sue, I hope you feel better. That was a good idea that you stopped where you did today, it's not worth pushing it. Enjoy your time with your family. Nice job on the workout, that looks like fun!

Roselyn, good job with the Cathe Live workout yesterday!

DOZ, I hope you have a nice workout today.

Have a nice day.
 
Evening guys,

Busy morning, time to relax:cool: This morning I did Kick Punch and Crunch standing legs premix. This workout never gets boring, and it’s always a challenge. Then I went for a brief walk; it was only 45 minutes, so enjoyable. My upper body so sore eek :eek: After these remaining 4 weeks of STS, I’m going to move on, it’s time I’m getting bored.

Nice workouts everyone, you guys are hardcore ;) Have a great evening all

Doz, I bet you are getting bored after two rounds of STS. Nice work :)

Jolie. it is 95 here today and feels like 101 right now. Terribly hot! I find if I go very heavy on arms I feel it in my shoulders when they are hurting. Good workout today. I hope you can get the shoulder straightened out.

Roselyn, I would like to try Les Mills on Demand sometime. I don't know about Beach Body. I wouldn't mind checking out the Beast workouts since they are not on dvd as far as I know. How much is Beach Body on Demand? If I remember right it is higher than most sites and coaches get a discount or something?
 
BB is 39.00 quarterly there is a semi annual and of course the shakeology pack I am reading some reviews some people saying it freezes maybe I will look at les mills and I really love cathelive also fitnessblender I discovered too many youtubes on that
