Glad You Came Calves Challenge!
New video! I know. I know what you are thinking. “BUT YOU ALREADY KILLED OUR CALVES IN BB 2!”
Yes, but who says I can’t do it again!?
Thank you everyone who requested this song and asked for calves! For the next vid, I am hearing lots of requests for inner thighs. But I did not see an overwhelming response for a particular song – tell me below which song you’re DYING to hear!!!
Also, the Vegan Challenge is complete now as of June 10! How did everyone feel? For the ones who did it? CONGRATS to everyone who followed along with me 🙂 I will write up a post about this soon, but my eyes are getting droopy so I better go to bed!
Have a good time with the calf challenge…will catch you later! *yawn*

I got a really good workout from this, and I’ve been loving the whole calender. I do have to say, even though I used tiny three-pound weights instead of the textbooks, I’ve been limping for almost a week! This was super tough!
so i just started doing these workouts (its only been about 2 weeks) and i have to warn you guys that the calf raises are KILLER! if this is your first time doing calf raises in more than a year, i will let you know that you will be limping for a week (get your high heels ready, hopefully you have some). i seriously could not do some of the workouts scheduled for the rest of the week and it really screwed up my whole momentum. ive had pretty bad muscle pains throughout this series, but nothing like the disabling cramping and pain of my calves.
i dont know if i screwed up and just put too many books in my bag (which i didnt have much at all) but BE WARNED- if you’re anywhere near the fitness level as i am (i am a computer animator, so god knows i am cursed to a chair all day) please know that you will not be able to walk for at least a week. not kidding. if this is your first time, i really dont suggest using any weight at the pace and reps youre doing.
<3 im better now and ready to do MORE (thank god i can move again!) LOVE the workouts! i seriously do feel every single one i do. its glorious.
Aaaaahhh!! I’m such a wimp!! Lol!! I kept touching the floor!! Gonna try again right now! Maybe with no weights this time…that might have thrown me for a loop, since I’m still a beginner.
P.S. That blue looks really good on you 😀
When I did this calf workout- Not only did I feel it in my calves but could also in my glutes! Is that normal!? Either way it buurrned so good! 😀 Thanks girl!
A painful hi from Turkey Cassey!! 😀 This is a really nice work out omg my calves are killing me right now!! Next challenge may be Sexy Back by Justin especially for a nice back work out ha?! 😀
Thank you again!!!
I would like to hear the song “Scream” by Usher in a challenge video. It was also be really motivating if you had a challenge with Kelly Clarkson’s song “Stronger”.
I seriously hope the next vid is for inner thighs! I totally think the song should be These Boots are Made for Walking by Jessica Simpson cuz it’s kinda like a workout to get ready for those Daisy Dukes haha!
yes yes yes inner thigh!!!! thank you so much!!!!! also, domino by jessie j or long live by taylor swift is awesome…
Loved this workout! It’s such a simple and fun way to get in a quick targeted workout and listen to a fun song!
Cool future song idea… Punk Rock Princess by Something Corporate or Babies of the 80’s also by Something Corporate. 🙂
I love the idea of filling up bags with textbooks instead of regular weights! Thanks for the video!
I’d love to hear something by Florence + The Machine!!
Thanks for all your hard work. I’m sooooo sore…but in a good way!!
We Are Young by Fun. And maybe an Arms Challenge 😉
Hi Cassey! I would love a hamstring/back of leg workout -that nasty little place where the lower butt and leg meet. Also I think an 80’s/90’s music workout would be great for some smiles and flashbacks to keep one’s mind off an intense workout!
I’d love to have “Fighter” by BOB and Ryan Tennor as a workout song in your video! I do agree with Cher Lloyds music too 😀
i’m eagerly waitin for the inner thigh challenge.. you could use songs like ‘starships’ by nicki minaj, ‘where have you been’ by rihanna, ‘titanium” and ‘wild ones’ by sia, ‘dance again’ by Jlo, ‘stronger’ by kelly clarkson, ‘i can only imagine’ by chris brown ft david guetta..!! it would be nice to have a muffin top and lower belly workout vid.
luv u cassey.. ur awesome.. <3
Cassey your amazing upper back and leg stretches video is blocked. It says I have to sign in to view it: http://www.youtube.com/verify_age?next_url=/watch%3Fv%3DveAmTwJsaV0
If you could fix that please? I recall you saying in the video comments to do the stretching for fitness before and after the workouts but also like blocked video you said to do it after the workout and the stretching first. Like I wanted to do a variety of them. But either way its fine but if you can still do something about it. Thank you.
I love the idea of inner thighs. Could you do it to Cher Lloyd’s Want You back or LMFAO’s I’m Sexy and I know it.
Omg Dance Again by J Lo would be awesome!!!!!!!!! That song is the best <3
Definitely Part of Me by Katy Perry. 😀
Katy Perry: Wide Awake 🙂 or Usher: Scream !
Katy Perry-Part of Me…:)
yesss! i would love another one of your amazing inner thigh workouts!! 🙂 song request?? i feel like scream by usher is a winner. it always gets me motivated when i’m doing something challenging in the gym. thanks so much Cassey!!
so, i’m trying to get myfitnesspal exercise information correct, would POP pilates be considered vigorous calisthenics? or light/moderate? or just regular pilates?
I did your other calf and leg workout 3 days ago and can finally walk! Im ready to try this new one tomorrow, you are awesome and ty sooooooooooooooo much. I enjoy working out with you; luv your workouts, energy and you’re a sweatheart!
Cher Lloyd – Want U Back!!!
Back challenge!!! (I hear all the new music I know from you, so no song suggestion >.>)
A back challenge would be great!!
Maybe ‘Scream’ by Usher or try a piloxing (pilates and kickboxing hybrid) to gym class heroes ‘Fighter’. I like the oblique challenge idea or a back challenge. (usher does say get on your back…
I agree with J: Do Titanium – David Guetta ft. Sia! Sooo good.
Toxic by britney spears!!!! Who doesn’t love britney??
Back in Time from Men in Black 3, or wild ones by flo rida!
I know this song is somewhat old (2010), but Shakira’s ‘Waka Waka’ pumps you up so well!
I suggest ‘Feel So Close” by Calvin Harris. I’m really loving the beat to this song right now!
I agree with:
Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger”
And though this is an old one, it’ perfect for motivation in tough workouts: Christina Aguilera’s “Fighter”
Katy Perry – Part of Me
PLEAAAAASE TAKE ANYY SONG OF CHRIS BROWN?!? U WOULD MADE MY DAY !!! and if u do that i will go hard on that challenge !!
I love your workouts !!
OHHEEMGEE. Please. Please. Do a challange to “Honkey Tonk Badonkadonk” by Trace Adkins. It is sooo catchy and gets you in the mood to have fun.
‘Dance Again’ by Jennifer Lopez or ‘Sexy Chick’ by David Guetta
starships would be a great song for inner thighs! really distracting lolz
I did this without any added weights and I still died. I’m now afraid to add weights..
Stronger by Kelly Clarkson, Where have you been by Rihanna or You turn me on by David Guetta and Nicki Minaj 😀
I really love the song Titanium – David Guetta ft. Sia! It gets me pumped and motivated!
Stronger- Kelly Clarkson
For the next muscle group, you should do an obliques challenge 🙂
Any song by destiny’s child!
I love Part of Me by Katy Perry and I’m sexy and I know it by LMFAO.
I would love to see a challenge or BB for upper arms/upper back/batwings. Perhaps to the “Lights” song by Ellie Goulding 🙂
Katy Perry’s “Part of Me” would be fun!
I think I found my new office workout! 🙂 Thanks!
I love “Somebody That I Used To Know” by Goyte, and think it would be a great song to do moves in speed/recovery intervals!
Great job on your blog, Cassey! Love it all!! 🙂
Oh, i’m so excited for the inner thigh video!!! Maybe Katy Perry and ‘Part of me ‘ or Alex clare with ‘too close’?
An inner thigh challenge to “Starships” by Nicki Minaj.
Maybe whistle by flo rida? You’re the best Cassey!
I’d love to have a challenge with “Boyfriend” by Justin Beiber. I don’t if other people would like it but that song is really catchy! I also really like Neon Trees’ “Everybody Talks”. I also really need an inner thigh challenge ;).
Thank you Cassey!
As for the song request, I would say a Shakira song, it would be so good! Rabiosa or Ojos asi 😉
I looooove “Ojos Asi”! I used to belly dance to that song, and it’s SO great for getting pumped up. Great suggestion!
Forgot to mention songs, I liking Katy Perry’s Part of Me too, also how about our lass Cheryl Cole or “Cheryl” as she going now her new song Call My Name good one for a push up challenge
I think she’s not known in the US, but how about danish singer Aura Dione “Friends”
Or maybe Gossip, I like their songs, so powerful!
Pitbull – back in time
for summer feeling: Michel Teló – Ai se eu te pego
I’m not on Facebook, but I check your site everday to get the latest updates. For the first time in my life I actually enjoy working out – thanks to you 🙂 I feel so much fitter since I started doing your workouts (or to be honest: since I stopped reclining on the couch hahaha)
I love the song challenges! Songs I’d like to hear are:
Katy Perry – Part of me
Kelly Clarkson – Stronger
Thank you so much!
Just done this holding two large bottles of cola (not mine) whilst waiting for hubby to finish in shower & shave, great feeling in calves will def do this whilst brushing my teeth brilliant suggestion Cassey. I have chicken legs, all thigh & no calves so this is a must for me, it hurts in the BB video when I do that too lol
hey Cassey!! This workout is so inventive! I would like you to do one more video about the inner thigh and also I have one problem I have no butt!!What can I do about that it’s completly flat, when I say flat it is flat, flat as a flip flop!! Your videos say burn this butt, but it’s not what I want, I want one 😉 sorry for my English Hope you understood anyway 😉 c. from france
All off Cassey’s butt workouts will give you a ‘nice round booty’ 🙂
I did the vegan challenge, and actually enjoyed it! I was fairly flexible with the meal plan you provided, but everything I ate was good quality and vegan friendly 🙂 I might keep eating this way!
For the next challenge, could we have something that works the upper body, such as biceps? We have 5 challenge videos now – 3 lower body (quads/inner thighs, booty, calves), 1 middle body (abs) and 1 upper body (triceps), so another upper body challenge would be fantastic!
For the song, I’d love Rihanna’s ‘Where Have You Been’ or Katy Perry’s ‘Part of Me’ 😀
