I think you know by now that I am all about making your workouts work for YOU, no matter how much (or how little) you modify them. (And if you didn’t know that – hi! I’m Pahla B, and I love and whole-heartedly approve of modifications!) So, for this week’s Mini Challenge, we have something of a modification theme going on. Since it’s CUTBACK week, we’re cutting it back – modifying workouts, bringing down the intensity and talking about getting the most from modifying your every day workouts.
I think you’re going to enjoy the chill vibe of these workouts – I know I had a lot of fun filming them and putting them together for you.

All videos are available for preview immediately (even the ones that haven’t been officially “released” yet!). And don’t forget to start your workout with a WARM UP.
On MONDAY, we’re starting the week with everybody’s favorite: a FLOOR WORKOUT! Oh, wait. Nobody likes those. 🙂 So I made you an all-new MODIFIED FLOOR WORKOUT instead! With the help of a low table, the side of your couch or even your comfy bed we’re getting a great total body cardio and strength tone up. This stackable routine pairs well with the all-standing, no squatting low impact cardio workout that you’ll find suggested at the end of the video.
TUESDAY’S all-new Let’s RUN podcast is a terrific (stackable!) 15 MINUTE WALK + RUN, where we’re cruising through 2,000 steps with one minute intervals and chatting about getting the MOST BENEFIT from your modified workouts.
WEDNESDAY’S workout is an oooooooooooooooollllllllld favorite of mine, from way back in 2014, when I first started realizing the power of modifications. Specifically, turning a “jumpy” workout into a motivating LOW IMPACT CARDIO sweat-fest that’s easy on your knees while still being tough on your heart and lungs. (Wanna read the story behind this workout? Check out the blog post I wrote about it nearly four years ago!)
On THURSDAY, we’re bringing down the pace and intensity of this all-new workout while still managing to get in plenty of cardio and strength, for those days when you’re just feeling “off.” You know, when your head’s not in the game, or your stomach isn’t cooperating, or maybe you’re just a crabby crabapple. Don’t let the one hour run time fool you on this one! It’s long because there’s a lovely, thorough warm up, a truly luxurious stretch afterward, and – even though I talked significantly less than normal – the workout moves along at a really gentle, forgiving speed. I LOVED this workout and I hope you do, too!
And FRIDAY we’re finishing out the week with a li’l bit more modification – this fantastic LOW IMPACT CARDIO HIIT that’s the perfect length (20 minutes!), the perfect speed (moderate!) and the perfect amount of toughness (just enough!) to make you feel wonderful going into the weekend.
