Metabolic Blast+6 Pack Abs 2+Extended Stretch

#1
A+! It was hard to pick which one to do first so I had my husband pick since he was doing it also. And it's hard to remember all the moves after only doing it once, but I do remember enjoying it & loving the moves. We both started out w/same weight as Cathe since they are new moves to learn but we both went up in weight for some moves & ended up having to go back down in weight for some. My shoulders were burnt which I love! Especially towards the end, there is a side plank rear delt move that fried any last bit I had left of my shoulders-this was my favorite move! I think my shouldes were burnt because I went up in weight for all the previous moves that involved shoulders. The main workout was a lot of fun-the time flew by so fast we were shocked! I like that it all felt new & fresh. Everyone looks amazing as usual! I think this is perfect workout for intermediate as is and the more advanced Cathletes will want to go up in weight (for some or all of the exercises). I feel like I got winded on a few exercises more than others but not the constant feeling of the more intense workouts. I'm looking forward to doing it again now that I'm familiar with it.

Abs 2 were really hard-again, Love that! All new which I was hoping for & some were really tough moves. I couldn't believe how much I felt some of them. I don't remember what some were called but there was one w/butterfly arms that you come up & touch your outside edge of hands together under leg & the planks w/bent leg circles, I remember really feeling them in my obliques. The Extended Stretch was nice to have. My favorite part were the glute stretches-they got in there really good. My glutes are always tight so this was awesome!

I didn't do the Calorie Crush but I did preview it & now I wish I added that on. It looks like so much fun & is exactly what the advanced Cathletes will probably like adding on to any workout. The moves looked new and/or different variation of familiar & looked like they will definitely boost the intensity. I'm looking forward to what everyone else thinks & more reviews! Thank you Cathe-so far I'm loving it!!! My husband & I both mentioned how incredible you always look and in this series you look even more lean muscular fit build. You are always my inspiration!!!

I just added it in my workout mgr & looked at the exercises to refresh my memory. I wanted to add in that I also enjoyed how Cathe did the 1 arm snatches and the little squat jumps in the main workout. In the abs, now I'm wondering how on earth I forgot the incredibly tough staggered arm planks-I had to take a few breaks! Love that there is something for me to work towards : )

BlakKat,

I always look forward to your reviews. You are usually the first to post them and your details are always helpful and motivating. I was most looking forward to PHA but now I'm thinking of doing this one first. I'm glad you told us bit about the bonus stretch. My "hammies" get tight at times as well, so it's good to know I can use this stretch to help with that.

You say the workout is A+. Your review(s) is as well. Thank you!

Thank you Teals!:) I live in NJ & I waited to do my workout this morning until the mailman came. I'm always a little nervous doing the reviews because I know everyone likes different things about workouts so I hope my opinion helps someone :). PHA was the other one I am excited to do - that's why I couldn't decide. They all look so good, I'll probably let my husband pick tomorrow too. Enjoy & let me know what you think!!!

My weekend workout ladies and I did Metabolic Blast on Saturday. We always gravitate to one of Cathe’s Metabolic workouts because it meets each of our needs. (Some don’t step, another bad knees, another a long distance runner who prefers to avoid leg work).
We loved MB. My girlfriends went along with Cathe’s weights while I played around with some 8s instead of 5s. I found that some sets you just have to go with Cathe’s weights while a couple of others are more challenging with 8s. But I never reached for anything higher.
It is a great workout (6pk #2). I agree with the shoulder work, it’s wonderful and to have some lower body work going on simultaneously upped the energy demand. Mostly- it was fun, we had a blast!

The Calorie crush is 10 different "drills". It had jacks, 1 legged burpees, squat hop forward/back/forward then run back. etc. There is some jumping like the 1 legged tuck jumps which are kind of like a jumping knee smash. It was nice. I agree about the weights. If you go heavier it does make it harder (obviously) but it was a treat to stay w/ Cathe's weights.

Metabolic Blast is a home run!!! Love this workout. This was my first time doing it so I just wanted to see how the main workout feels. That's what I'm doing with this series, the main workouts first then I will add on. Anyway, loved the flow and the transitions were seamless. It was gentle on my body, while frying muscles and increasing my heart rate. Love ❤️ this workout. Cathe if you read this post. You hit a homerun. Thank you.

I just did the MishMosh #2 where the abs are put in there after the standing and after the floor section. I really liked this. I would say that this is more a shoulder and leg workout mixed with a little bit of everything else. My shoulders are really feeling it. I don't think I'm going to go too much heavier only because of the pace of the workout, it moves pretty fast. Thanks for another fun workout Cathe!!!
