Workout Series for Menopause/Post Menopause (Based on Cathe's advice in her recent article)

I read Cathe's newsletter today that discussed the changes you should to your health routines you should make once you hit menopause (https://cathe.com/how-menopause-can-affect-your-body-composition-and-workouts/) with interest.

How about an exercise series that focuses on the heavier weights/extra recovery/lower impact cardio that is mentioned in the article?

I've been working out with Cathe since Pure Strength/Maximum Intensity Strength came out on videotape in my 20's! It would be great to have a series to keep working along with her as I age into menopause too. :)

I also second this!! Turning 59 in 4 weeks and the idea of slightly longer recovery is great. I tend to get a little frustrated with and quick change from one exer to another and sometimes end up doing my own thing while the DVD keeps going.

I don't know about a whole workout series for this as Cathe needs to cater to a wide audience. However, something may be able to be done with the premixes to a series to create some menopause styled workouts.

I feel a special rotation coming on. Somebody (wiser than I) could create a monthly rotation for Menopausal Cathletes. But maybe call it something cooler than that, LOLOL

The ICE and LITE series had those special bonuses like the blizzard blast and muscle meltdown add ons so advanced exercisers could have that extra cardio kick. That’s an idea. Have add ons so there’s something for everyone!

Im in!~!!!!
Can it include things like "soft on the knees and back" because oh boy my knees are not the same as they were once when I was a step freak!!
I’d love some more slide and glide style cardio. I did the double trouble premix for slide and glide recently and I forgot what a solid cardio workout it gave me. The jacks on the discs and the slow mountain climbers are just as intense as jumping around.

Maybe call it the Mid-life Special or the Wisdom Workout. lol I do like to think of myself as getting wiser rather than older. :)

I feel like sts 2 is going to be close to this idea. No cardio, but I plan to use walking and maybe my elliptical machine
I’m looking forward to STS 2.0. I wish I still had my elliptical. I sold it in 2018 to have more floor space in my workout area and because I was hardly using it. Between injuring my knee back in June during Cardio Slam and then getting a sprained foot from my dog and my neighbor’s dog running into my lower leg 2 weeks ago, I could get so much use out of one again. I can still lift for upper body and To The Mat has been my go to lower body workout because of wanting to be cautious with my foot.
