“Live While We’re Young” by One Direction


So apparently y’all are addicted to 1D. Yes I hear you I hear you!!! So I gave the boys another go with a LWWY inner workout. While thinking up a routine, I was playing this song on repeat to get a feel for it. I thought the guys were cutie-boy teenagers who wore bow ties and tight pants telling girls how beautiful they were. Didn’t really realize how off I was until I investigated the lyrics of this song! Watch my reaction video above. Tell me if you thought what I thought or if you knew better…


And finally the workout! Inner thigh lifts and cellulite-blasting thrusts for hamstrings. This is is tough. I was DYING. All you need is a chair and some willpower. Just do it. It will burn and you will love.

Have fun guys!!!

<3 Cassey

    P.S. I Love the workout! Really intense I had to take a break before replaying :) thx

  • Bethany

    Thank you! I had the same reaction to the lyrics as you. I think most people don’t listen to what the lyrics are saying and how they(the lyrics) influence us.

  • Meagan

    LOL you should hear “Rock Me” then. Haha. (:

  • Heidi K


    PLEASE tell me you are still going to list all of the videos in the workout video tab. I was looking for this “live while we’re young” video in there and it wasn’t to be found! I don’t want it to get lost in the pages of your blog. I want to remember it!!

  • Addison

    Hahaha Cassey, your reaction made me laugh so hard!!!

  • Kendall

    … I think my chair was too high because the second I tried my hip popped really loud and I think I pulled my muscle… but I totally agree, those lyrics are wrong!

  • brittany

    i loved that video. did you know Girl’s Life has you as one of their favorite youtube workout gurus? also could you do a video to Ariana Grande’s Put Your Hearts Up? its a really good song. thanks

  • Amber

    OowwWW! That was nuts! I could barely do that move, I think I maybe did half. My thigh jigglies scream in pain.

  • Jenny

    Since no one here is really part of the 1D fandom I’m going to have to break it to you but 1D and its fans are quite perverted. They’re teenage boys, what do you expect? And their fans are pretty dirty-minded, haven’t you heard of the throwing of bras, underwears even a tampon onstage, being flashed in Poland and someone even attempting a crotch grab during a concert. Most of the fans I’ve met are high schoolers so I don’t get why why people think only 12 year olds like 1D. It’s a fandom populated mostly by hormone-driven teenagers so its not as innocent as you think it is.

    • well i was just scrolling looking for printable lyrics for this song and i found this and now i realize how wrong the song sounds i just hope that doesnt happen at the 1D concert (or MMVAS) next year cuz im both going to a concert and mmvas (maybe) cuz ive seen videos only niall and harry got thrown bras at and niall gets bras sent to him in ireland and they want him to autograph it so add the autographing bras to the list

  • Johanna

    OMG Cassey I love your reaction.

    I really don’t listen to one direction, but i had to watch your video- yeah, that’s kinda gross.

    The bad part is that young teens love this kinda music.. and that’s not the message you wanna send to them :/

  • Dasha


    Thank you for your workouts and recipes.

    Could you please explain how to choose protein powder and how and when to take it?

  • heather

    Love it! you’re so funny Cassey!!! : )

  • Allison Vogel

    Cassey, this killed my legs… But in a good way! (^0^)

    Can’t wait to see what’s next!

    P.S. – Would LOVE to do a routine to the song “Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia. If you have done it already, please point me in the right direction! <3 and peace (^^)v

      I like it.Previously I drag and drop to a task but with a folder I think you get more cnotrol. You can also set aside a block of time to get through the replies rather than the constant pecking when it is spread throughout the day. It is also very satisfying, especially at the end of the week, to have a cleared inbox. Even with mail to reply to in a folder it is just one task.

  • C.

    haha, this really is super weird!! :) but to me the weird thing is not (only) the fact that it’s 1D using such lyrics in their songs, but that the type of music & the tune just don’t fit the lyrics. it’s like “lalala-pretty-girls-cute-boys-and-popsongs” and then all of a sudden: “LET’S GET SOME!!!” *talks with voice like darth vader’s* lol :)

    i mean, in a hiphop track or so it would be perfectly fine, i.e. nobody would notice. but here it just seems so out of place it almost makes you go “awww! cute boys doing bad boy talk” :)

  • I admit, I heard the song but wasn’t really listening that closely to the lyrics. Now you mention it, there does seem to be something a bit wrong about them….but I guess that seems to be the case for an awful lot of pop music out there!

  • WOW… I’ve NEVER liked One Direction. They rip off bands like Blink-182, The Beatles, and The Ramones. I know this is POP Pilates, but could you do a video with a rock song, just once?

    • Soph

      I totally agree with you! I’m not a fan of pop music, and I can’t stand One Direction. I would be so grateful if she did even one video with a rock song.

  • Laetitia

    Love your work.

    Can you make a video on this song: Kreayshawn – Go Hard (La.La.La)

    Thx :)

  • Catt

    HAHA SO AGREE! I’m not interfering with what anyone wants to do with sex, but “tonight let’s get some” would just totally ruin it for me ;)

  • nas

    ehmm.. maybe it sounds stupid but what does: let’s get some mean? ;p

    • Louise

      It doesn’t sound stupid :) “let’s get some” means “let’s bang” (meaning have sex)

      • nas

        omg hahah thankyou :)

  • Leah

    Omg Cassey I love your reaction to the video and lyrics lol Way to remind us that we should take care of our bodies and make sure they are respected!

    And as always, the workout was fabulous.

  • Lizzie

    Thank you soooo much cassey!! I love this song. I mean, i’m like exactly the same as you, the beats catchy and everything but the lyrics?! I dunno. Thank you much, I love all your workouts. I have a suggestion, maybe. I know this song is a bit of an oldie, but i love runnig to it, ‘When You’re Looking Like That’ by Westlife would be amazing! But you know, it’s not as popular as it used to be!

  • Tamara Wright

    Would this also be working your abs and midsection as the ‘ankle taps’ usually do?


  • Jessica

    I’m a little shocked by those lyrics too! Awesome workout though! Thanks Cassey!

  • Stephanie

    I love one direction, but I was thinking the same thing when I first heard the song. Ever since then I changed the lyric to ” tonight lets just jump” lol but I have to keep my morals.

  • laura

    noooooooooooooo cassey, u can do sooooooooooooooooo much better then zayne or whatever his name is, hes cute but… youre more a paul walker girl, check him out here i sound like your mother, sorry, lol

    • laura

      well, im old enough 2 b your mother :)

  • fado

    I love this workout!!!! Thank you cassey :)

  • Arely

    Totally agree with You Cassey!

  • Nikita

    that was so intense! I could barely keep my balance when we were doing the first exercise! so good though!

  • kat

    Pretty sure I had the exact same “noo…what did they just say?!” reaction when I heard that song! The workout is awesome tho, I will definitely be feeling that for the next few days!

  • katie

    lmfao your reaction made me laugh so hard!

    im personally not a 1D fan (hello annoying) but after watching this video I looked up the lyrics and was in aww. but uh great message youre putting out to the younger ones who love your music.. good for you boys.

    • katie

      also the thrusting made me laugh pretty hard.

  • C.

    WOWWWWWW!!!!! crazy stuff!
