Cathe Live: Move It

Cathe Live Review: Move It (#187)

Move It is an express cardio Hiit workout with a few metabolic exercises sprinkled in. This is a tough and intense routine that provided a nice cardiovascular challenge. I was definitely sweating and breathing hard in places.

The workout consists of thirty one different drills so there is lots of variety and apart from two exercises, there is no repetition. So no dread factor here as once you have completed the set number of reps you move on to something else.

The workout flew by and really packed a punch in a short amount of time. You move quickly from one thing to the next and there is very little rest between exercises. Cathe structures the workout very carefully though to build in slightly less intense exercises and give you a chance to regroup before pushing hard again.

The cardio drills are straight forward Hiits, which will all be very familiar to Catheletes and those who have done Cathe’s Hiit routines before. The drills are done for just the right amount of time to get you breathing hard and pushing but not completely wiping you out. The workout is designed to be high impact but you could easily modify to lower impact, if you wanted to, and Cathe does show a few modifications along the way. This includes modifications for the famed Sit-Up / Push-up combo, air jacks and burpees etc. In between some of the cardio drills, Cathe also includes a few metabolic exercises, using 10 pound dumbbells. Some of these also give you a chance to breathe a little more although a few are quite high rep and you will start to feel the work here too!

Overall, this was an effective and time efficient cardio / metabolic workout that packs a lot in to a short period of time. You will definitely be feeling the challenge with this one!

I really liked this workout because nothing is repeated. You do the move for one set then you're on to the next thing. It moves fast, has lots of variety, and comes in at 38 minutes. Perfect.

My Modifications: I didn't do the rapid crazy crab walks, but rather full form twisting bicycle moves. I ditched the burpees for Spiderman.
