Cathe Live Rotation #1 - Metabolic, Total body & Cardio Focus
I was recently asked, by one of the lovely readers of my blog, if I would consider posting a Cathe Live rotation to help provide some ideas on how to combine the hundreds of different Cathe Live workouts. As there are so many of them now (269 as of writing), I decided, as a starting point, to put together a rotation based on Cathe’s October DVD one but substituting similar Live workouts instead. It’s not quite a perfect match but I think it’s reasonably close…
Rotations are useful if you don’t want to have to think about which workout to do each day and still want to get a balance of hitting each of the different muscle groups and mixing in cardio, strength and metabolic routines. Now obviously you can create your own, based on your own individual goals, but the one below may provide a starting point, in case you would like one!
I find this also provides a good way to work through the different Cathe Live workouts in a more systematic way. This is what I originally did - when I wanted to work through every Cathe Live in the archive - so that I could make sure that I actually did all of them (with the exception of the spinning videos)!
As Cathe only provides rotations for her DVDs and not her Live workouts, as mentioned, the rotation below is based on Cathe’s October 2019 one, which is focused on metabolic, total body and cardio routines to fire up the muscles and the metabolism. Cathe advises to take extra rest days, if needed, and get plenty of water! Your “off” day can be moved to any day within the rotation, if you’re feeling sore or are in need of extra recovery.
Links are included below to the detailed reviews for each of these workouts. If you don’t like a particular workout - feel free to substitute another similar workout (as Cathe has so many!)
