Cathe Live Review: Mish Mosh Legs (#74)

Mish Mosh Legs is a pretty challenging, lower body strength workout that start standing and ends with floor work. This is a great routine that challenged my lower body nicely.

The workout is a mix of more metabolic strength exercises and higher rep endurance moves. There is a pretty good cardio factor, for most of the workout, and the variety of exercises makes the time fly by. You start with lighter or non-weighted lower body exercises before moving into slightly heavier weight, more tradition strength work alternated with those using the resistance loop. Some of these exercises were very high rep and I was really starting to feel them. Cathe’s counting is a little off on three of the moves (standing hamstring press / curl and two floor work exercises – details shown below) and these, of course, tend to be the higher rep moves. The weights used were also a little more moderate overall but I generally found they generally worked well and just increased on a few.

After the standing lower body exercises, you then move onto floor work, using the resistance loop. I found all of these moves very challenging, as I used a heavier resistance loop for each of them, and they really burned out my muscles. You end this segment with 1 leg hamstring presses and these finished totally frying my lower body.

Overall, an excellent and tough lower body strength workout that will nicely burn out all the muscles in your lower body.

The Workout

Mish Mosh Legs is a lower body strength workout that starts standing and ends with floorwork. Cathe used moderate dumbbells, a medium tension resistance loop (I used heavy resistance) and a mat for this routine. (I also used a step platform, for the last exercise, to rest my heel on rather than a dumbbell).

Leg day is my least favorite day but I didn't hate this workout. It was doable. I almost liked it.
