It’s Gonna be May! May Workout Cal that is.

Oh gosh how I love being able to use this gif once a year! I was actually reading a Forbes article that says that at the beginning of each May, N*SYNC gets a huge boost of views on YouTube thanks to Justin Timberlake saying “me” with a slight twang.

So, y’all in the spirit of my favorite 90s boy band: “IT’S GONNA BE MAY.”

The new May Calendar is gonna throw you for a spin!

It’s different than all of our past calendars because it’s preparing you for PIIT28 – my Pilates Intense Interval Training program. This means short bursts of intensity, rest periods, and your workouts will be under half an hour every day (unless you’re doing a stretch video afterwards)!

I think you’ll really love the change in pace, the short workouts, and the extra sweat! You may find that this is JUST the SHOCK your body needs to really get strong and agile.

So here’s how it works:

  1. Download the calendar above! If you download the linked PDF, you can just click on the video of the day and it will take you straight to YouTube without having to search! If you want to save it as your desktop background, download the hi-res JPEG!
  2. Each day has a muscle group focus so that you can switch off throughout the week, not overworking any part of your body.
  3. You’ll notice that most workouts have “4x” or “3x” next to the video title. This means I want you to do 4 rounds or 3 rounds of that video in one workout session.
  4. Fridays are for food and flexibility! That is why you’ll see me linking to some food videos as well as stretch videos. It’s your rest day!
  5. Remember to check off the boxes as you go!

And if you want to advance to PIIT28 after this calendar, I’m giving you an exclusive coupon code “sweaty15” for $15 off my Transformation Pack which includes all of the PIIT28 programs plus The 28 Day Reset!

And if you finish the PIITSTAGRAM 1.0 challenge…I’m gonna send you the official PIIT28 Completion Top!

Each one of these ladies put in their time, sweat, hard work and earned their right to this top because it can NEVER BE BOUGHT. Congrats to @popster_kagami, @tiffanydoespiit28@mikaelastinkypiit, and @lean_like_a_green_bean.

I want you to use the May calendar to get stronger, to get leaner, and to find your most confident self! Be sure to follow other POPsters on IG and become active in the community.

And trust me…these are some of the most AMAZING people you will find out there.

After you complete the May cal, you’ll be ready to tackle PIIT28 in NO TIME!!!

    I like that the workouts are more intensive, focused, and shorter. It’s definitely challenging, but I applaud Cassey for shaking things up for us. I think it’s important to remember that the past calendars are always available to mix and match, but I liked the shorter workouts.

    I LOVE variety. I have to have it so I understand that some people weren’t into the calendar. I will say that I really like it. I love the quick isolated workouts and I really like how quick they are. As a busy mom that is the most important thing for me. Getting a really good and really quick workout for me. I know people don’t like change especially when they find something that works but I thought this calendar was great and a nice change of pace.

  • i am meeeeeeeeeeeeee

  • Jess

    Are the descriptions for each day the names of the videos that we’re supposed to do with her everyday? On Youtube? I just recently joined Blogilates but I’m looking forward to this!

    I, too, was disappointed when I saw the May calendar. Like many others, I don’t like repeating videos or doing HIIT style workouts with lots of cardio and jumping, and I worried that it would be discouraging and unmotivating to wake up to this format everyday. But I decided to give it a shot. First of all, there’s no jumping in these new videos, so I was rejoicing. Second, watching these same 6 videos over and over again got old really fast, especially when the same video repeats moves for each side of the body (same move x8!).

    While I do miss doing mat pilates with Cassey, this change has been a nice interruption to our regular programming. The workouts themselves aren’t my favorite, but I love how hard it’s making me work and how quickly I’m able to do it all. My cardio levels are higher now than usual, I’m getting better at finishing the 4 rounds without stopping, and I feel more energetic overall because I’m in better shape from doing all the HIIT. Not to mention that I can snooze my alarm one round now that the workouts are less than 30 minutes. The shorter workout times were perfect for this month because I had a lot of early work days for a special project, and it was convenient to be done with my workout in a half hour.

    The main downside (or is it upside?) to this is that my legs were getting sore after doing so many lower body moves on consecutive days. Since the fat burn workout is basically all squats and lunges, it works my lower body just has much as leg and booty day. Some weeks had 4 consecutive days of lower body, followed by a day of rest and two upper body days, which doesn’t make sense to me. I’d like to see the lower body spaced out more, maybe with an arm day in between so that my legs can be given a chance to rest and recover. That’s the main design flaw of this month’s program. I didn’t want to injure myself or prevent myself from maximizing my workouts, and not allowing my legs to recover did exactly those two things. I’ve noticed a few calendars this year with 3-4 lower body days back-to-back, and I hope that future calendars allow some more space between those workouts.

    My muscles changed this month. They became thicker and bulkier from all the squatting and less elongated. The thing I love about pilates is that it elongates your muscles, so not having pilates this month altered my muscle shape. I’m looking forward to the regular calendar next month!

    That said, I’m so tired of these videos from May that I hope to not see them again for several more months. That said, I’m not looking forward to the jumping moves in cardio again. :(
