Cathe Live Review: Give Me More Legs & Core (#254)


Give Me More Legs & Core is a fun and different lower body and core workout. I enjoyed this routine as it incorporated lots of variety to work the body in different ways.


The workout consists of rounds of assorted lower body and core exercises using dumbbells, gliding devices and a stability ball. This is a strength workout, although it does have one cardio move – gliding mountain climbers - but this is for the core rather than pure cardio. Even though it is mainly strength work my heart rate stayed pretty elevated throughout.


The lower body exercises are a nice mix of different moves using all three types of equipment. They are generally not too high rep but just enough to start feeling the work. I really enjoyed the variety here and the time just flew by. The dumbbells used are more moderate, as you are often moving quite quickly and sometimes alternating between different moves.


The core exercises all use the gliding devices and I found these very effective in challenging the whole of my core. They also offer a good cardio effect, as well, which serves to increase the intensity a little further.


Overall, this was an enjoyable lower body and core workout packed full of variety. This was quite different from Cathe’s usual leg workouts and I liked it. This definitely wouldn’t count as a true strength workout for the legs but it’s a great workout to mix things up a little!
