First Look at the #Blogilates #NoMAYbes Workout Calendar

5 - noMAYbesHere we are at the start of May.  For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, summer is just around the corner, and everyone is getting into beach body mode.  I have to say that I am really looking forward to summer this year myself, because this is the first time in probably my whole life that I’ve been in good enough shape to actually be seen in a swim suit!  This month also marks one full year that I’ve been doing the Blogilates workout calendar.

This month’s calendar contains the following:

  • Sunday – Cardio Core
  • Monday – Total Body Burn (New workout video posted weekly)
  • Tuesday – Legs & Booty
  • Wednesday – Ab Mania
  • Thursday – Sexy Back & Arms
  • Friday – Stretch & Relax
  • Saturday – Total Body Burn

As always, you can access the daily workout playlists HERE.

Each month, Cassey releases an exclusive workout video that shows up on the workout calendar playlist line-up at least a time or two.  This month’s video is “5 Minute Slim Thighs.”  This one is a very short and sweet one, only 4 moves, and the entire video is only 6:43 long.

The thing about the monthly exclusive videos is, you won’t find them by searching the title on YouTube like all the other videos on the workout calendar.  This video can only be accessed by downloading the Blogilates smartphone app (free) and subscribing to the monthly workout calendar within the app ($0.99 per month).

In my experience, I think it could go either way on whether you think it is worth the dollar a month to pay for the monthly calendar in the app.  For me, it has been helpful when I take my workouts to the gym with me and I still want to do my Blogilates workout.  But in the grand scheme of things, you’re only missing (in this case) one 5-minute portion of an hour-long workout.  You can fill that with the moves from the 30 Day Thigh Slimming Challenge at a minute a piece.  Or this…

And there you have it… the workout plan for May!

    • It really depends on a lot of different things. Your own height and weight, the intensity you’re putting into the workouts, and which workouts your doing for how long. The best way to estimate it is to add the exercise to something like My Fitness Pal where you have already entered your personal statistics and you just enter what exercise you’re doing for how many minutes. But one thing to consider is… while one workout may only burn a couple hundred calories (as an example), it is also helping you build more muscle in your body, and the more muscle you have, the more calories you are going to burn in everything you do, even at rest. This is why any type of resistance training is encouraged as a part of any weight loss routine. Cardio will burn the fat off your body, and resistance training like weight lifting or pilates will change the shape of your body while speeding up your overall metabolism. I hope that helps!
