    Hello, of course this article is really nice and I
    have learned lot of things from it regarding blogging.

    thanks.IDN Poker

  2. Elle .S says:

    This took me 18 minutes, it was really hard and I was sweating like crazy but i’m very proud that i finished it. ^^

  3. Rhiannon says:

    This took me 23 minutes the first time. The burn was so good. Can’t wait to not get out of bed tomorrow!

  4. Lucy says:

    My first time doing this routine and it took me 25 minutes. My arms are jelly after the tricep dips and then holding my form for the hover Jacks!! gonna burn so good tomorrow!

  5. kristýna says:

    it takes mi 28 min

    1. kristen says:

      it takes me 29 min

  6. Christine says:

    Doing 100 cobra push ups is not advisable for most people.. or anyone!!

  7. Andréa says:

    I gonna try tomorrow but I already knew that i’m gonna die !

  8. Laura says:

    I have a question: When doing the high knees, do we have to move our backs all the way back like in the GIF above, or not?

    1. Natasha says:

      Probably not 🙂 You can do high knees with a straight back and without leaning back.

  9. Andrea says:

    Seriously! This womans form is all wrong. Do these workouts just like this and you’ll strain and injury yourself. Come on, why do all these people feel like they have the skills to recomend workouts and such?
    Awful. Just awful.

    1. sarah says:

      because she’s certified by NESTA and Balanced Body University for mat and reformer

      that’s why she has the skills to recommend workouts.

      1. Max says:

        Maybe….but moving her feet during a squat as she does is wrong….or a signal of bad balance…

        1. Renae says:

          It actually isn’t a huge deal if her toes are moving- it just proves that her squat is being pushed through her heels- like it should be.

    2. Cara says:

      Woah Andrea.. Jealous. Just Jealous.

  10. Kitkat1 says:

    Hey Cassey, can you please do a printable of this workout?? I don’t know how to print out GIFS. If someone knows how I can print this I would really appreciate some how-to for printing this.

  11. Sandra says:

    31mins although I did cheat and decided that true push ups was better

  12. Layla says:


  13. Simone says:

    I am so going to try this, have pinned it to my “Fitspo” board on pinterest 🙂

  14. Megan says:

    I did 10 rounds of 10 reps and it took 29 min for me =)

    1. Caitlin says:

      Isn’t it supposed to be 100 reps?

      1. AMD says:

        10 rounds of 10 reps is 100 reps.

        10X10=100 😛 A fun way to break up the exercise if you find the sheer amount of it intimidating/ get bored easily like me.

        1. Erika says:

          Actually, 10 rounds of 10 reps of 10 exercises = 1000.

  15. Janet says:

    Ahhhhh my friend and I started Operation: Sexypants to get me in shape and get me confidence before school starts. We started July 2nd and I already can feel my muscle building and I notice a big difference. It took my about 32 minutes.

  16. Hi there to every one, the contents present at this site are really amazing for people experience, well, keep up the nice work fellows.

  17. Katarina says:

    I did it again! The first time it took 19 minutes, this time took 13;)

  18. Katarina says:

    Took me 19 minutes! Such a fun workout:)

  19. Gabby says:

    I did it in 9:22

  20. bloon td 5 says:

    Hi i am kavin, its my first time to commenting anyplace, when i read this piece of writing
    i thought i could also make comment due to this good paragraph.

  21. Annonomus says:

    I am 12 and did this for fun 15:23, what a workout

  22. Shalene says:

    I can’t watch the vids on my computer. Hoping to buy the dvd set soon!!! Really need to lose the weight and eat healthier!!

  23. chloe says:

    Cut it down to 14:32. its so much easier second time through!
    how is everyone else doing time wise?

  24. Diana says:

    the high knees cracks me up. leprechaun cassey

    1. SK says:

      I didn’t realize how funny it was until I saw your comment. Cassey be struttin’, lol

    2. Laura says:

      The high knees gif of her is my favorite, its so ridiculous. Love this woman!

  25. chloe says:

    first attempt, 18.50 what a killer!

  26. Sophia says:

    I chose a special approach; To start up, I only did #1. Then next day, 1 and 2. So on. Dying.
    I love that its in gifs, because I have no idea how to do the exercise if it’s just a picture and I haven’t heard of it.

    1. Tiara says:

      That is a great idea, thank you!!

  27. Arianna says:

    Would it be bad for your body if you do this workout 3-5 times a week?

    1. A says:

      Hey! I started doing this everyday since last week, (improving my time slowly 🙂 ), and I think it just depends on you. I like the feeling I get whenever I finish it. Just listen to what your body tells you and you can do it slowly.. just don’t quit!

  28. Members can also sell clothing items, backpacks and cars.
    The cell phone craze has risen to the point were people
    will pay anything for the latest phone, but what is the cut-off point.
    Made in China sunglasses are in good demand in world markets due to
    several reasons. Some people may say it is too much,
    but the point is women have become so accustomed to high heels that they wear
    them literally anywhere.

  29. meat sauce says:

    This design is wicked! You definitely know how to
    keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos,
    I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had
    to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  30. 14:37! I wonder what MyFitnessPal would consider this- Aerobics? Great workout!

  31. Sabrina says:

    Took me forever, but I took a lot of breaks, and did it in sets. I also had to skip the tricep dip due to a wrist injury, but I am going to keep practicing and try to improve my time!! HRM reads 473 Kcals burned!!

  32. Christine says:

    It took me 30 minutes : )

  33. Shana M. says:

    23 minutes and 46 seconds, sweating like a dog !

  34. Siena says:

    How many calories does this workout burn?

  35. Samia says:

    Took me about 35 minutes, but I had a 4 year old “helper” with me! He insisted on sitting on me when I was doing the half cobra pushups and the bridge pulses.

  36. Ashley C. says:

    This GIF… it’s too funny! But a clever reminder of which move to do next!

  37. Hey Cassey!

    I absolutely love your videos. I have stuck to every single day of JaNEWary so far, and I feel amazing.

    I know you’re really interested in healthy food and finding those really healthy recipes that taste sinful. I found a blog that seems right up your alley if you want to check it out.

    I love you keep doing what you do best 🙂

  38. Elizabeth says:

    With the lunges: is that 50 per leg, or 100 per leg? Not that it really matters, I could just start with 50 per leg and work my way up, but still 🙂

  39. Anna says:


    Okay, I’m just starting out. I’m doing a 90 days pilates challenge and am only on the first week. I decided to start slow so I took this down to a “500 challenge”. It took me about 35 minutes. I look forward to getting that time down and the reps up!!

  40. Kayla says:

    19:04 what a killer! now onto 20/20…. ugh

  41. Ashley says:

    25 minutes! That’s a good start…

  42. Kendall says:

    The problem with having the crunches half way through is i lie down…. And don’t wanna get back up! #thoughtIwasfit #definitelynot

    1. Elizabeth says:

      “Like”! 😀

  43. Holly says:

    Oh my days! I’ve been meaning to do some of your workout videos for ages and I thought I would just go for it with the 1000 workout. I am so shattered – it took 25 minutes with a few breaks towards the end – I felt like I was going to throw up! Maybe one day i will be able to do it without stopping – that can be my goal for now!

  44. imogen says:

    how many calories does this burn? it killsssss!

  45. Stephani says:

    Seriously… THANK YOU! This work out is PERFECT!! I did this when I didnt have enough time to get a full work out it.. This mos def gets the calories burnt and made me feel oh so sore the next day! Can not thank you enough! XoXo Steph!

  46. Qumij26 says:

    22 Minutes 🙂
    Thanks Cassey for always making such unique and refreshing workouts and videos!!
    You are the greatest!!

  47. Camilla Ida says:

    WOW! 28 minutes…great workout!

  48. Carolina says:

    Sorprendente! Este entrenamiento es muy bueno y voy
    a seguir toda estas rutinas en todos los videos.
    Gracias! 🙂

  49. Tracey says:

    16:00 min. I am tired, but feel great.

  50. Ingrid says:

    26 minutes! so tired….. but now.. stretching !

  51. Valerie says:

    wow this workout is intense! im working muscles i never knew i had my legs are killing me! This is only the second time i’ve done 100 squats + the rest + a few of ur other workouts before this! this is coming from a 12 year old. love your workouts and this is how i measured how long its taking: pop danthology all the way through + half a pitbull album almost done! zzzZzzz…..

  52. Erin says:

    50 minutes. Definitely going to try again soon to beat my time!! Awesome workout!

  53. soni says:

    Hi Cassey .HI everyone 🙂
    Is my third day today doing this workout and i love it.
    Is so nice.but so tiring on the same way.
    Cassey,please reply,if i do this 1000 workout for three months,every day,am i going to loose any weight?
    I have under active thyroid as well and is so hard for me to loose weight,but as long as i am on tablets,i think this workout it may work.
    Thank you so much for this free workouts.Happy new year.:)

    1. Uyenie says:

      Sorry, when you mean under active thyroid, you mean hypothyroidism?
      If so, your doctor should have prescribed synthroid to you, and you should not have weight problems secondary to your thyroid anymore, once your thyroid blood tests come back to normal 😉

      I don’t know if she’ll have the time to reply, so i’ll write this : working out like that will build muscles, which weight way more than fat. Therefore you might see it physically, being more toned, but might not see it in numbers. To lose weight you need to do cardio AND eat clean (drink lots of water, healthier choices, cut sugars and coke and blablabla)

      Hope it helps 😉
      I used to work in the field

  54. dwight says:

    14:54! Harder than it looks!!!

  55. Nina says:

    22 minutes. I’m tired!

  56. Grace says:

    managed to do the 400 workout before i felt like i was going to be sick… christmas has not been kind

  57. baby gorilla says:

    omg number 7 looks HI-LAR-I-OUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  58. Steph says:

    35 minutes! cobra pushups were hardest for me, but such a sweatfest! also i feel really unstable doing walking lunges, so i switched out for 50 lunge pulses per leg 🙂

  59. Krithika says:

    I did it with my two cousins as a team, it took us 40 min. we thoroughly enjoyed the workout and had great fun and soreness too 🙂

  60. Alyssa says:

    Wow, what a workout! It took me an hour + 20 minutes, haha. But I have to admit I barely worked out the last few months… so I’m proud of myself that I made it through the whole workout!

  61. Emma says:

    Hilarious. I’m totally trying that.

  62. Heather says:

    phew! 30 minutes, give or take…i was keeping time on my big wall clock lol didn’t think i could get through it, even during the exercises when i wanted to give up soo bad i just kept thinking of what cassey would say! “find the deeper meaning!”

    love you cassey!

  63. PrincessLa says:

    Thanks for all your videos and all the motivation! Love all your workouts!

  64. Kristen says:

    I’ve done this a few times now… it’s great for rainy nights after work when I don’t go to the gym, love it! Curious how many calories do you think it burns when you do all 1000 reps?

  65. Nancy says:

    HAHA! I laughed out loud when I saw the “High Knees” GIF! That one is the best! Thanks, Cassey! I just liked you on FB so I can see the questions. Happy holidays!

  66. Jenna says:

    Btw it’s tomorrow here in nj

  67. Jenna says:

    WHERE IS DVD???? Arghhhhhh I WANT it!!!!!! >:-[ hurry please Cassey!

  68. Paige says:

    this was amazing!! i’ve done it three times this week and i love it. thanks so much cassey!

  69. Ruby says:

    took me 18minutes! lunges and triceps dips were the hardest!

    1. Meagan Stegner says:

      18 minutes?! You’re a beast! It took me 38 minutes and I’m almost shaking too much to type! I’ll be feelin it tomorrow for sure, yikes! Good thing I’m in the midwest and snowed in:p

  70. KB says:

    Love the new shop website! Love the .gif! Love getting healthy! You have been a gift for me all year round! Thank you so much!

  71. Anaïs says:

    Hey Cassey !
    Do you know how can I get a “bigger” butt ? What workout to get it ? A little bit more were good to fit my jeans. =D
    Thank you a lot, for everything, you’re such a ray of sunshine in my life, full of energy !
    Thank you.
    PS: sorry for bad english, not my mother tongue.

  72. Brooklynn says:

    20:27 🙂 my butt, back and legs are sore today haha

  73. EmmaB says:

    28 minutes

    Oooooh! Thanks Casey – you’re the best!

  74. haha animated gifs look so cool! It does look weird though because it’s slow motion but not really….? And what a great workout! I love how you motivate so many people, it’s a gift. 🙂

  75. Qayyimah says:

    it took me about 40 minutes,,walking lounges and hover jacks were the hardest for me to do

  76. Allison Vogel says:

    Hi Cassey,

    I have been following you since June and I have gotten into amazing shape! Abs poking out, bubble butt, sculpted legs, and sexy arms. I have you to thank for all these wonderful videos and extra support. I knew I could do this, and I am glad I made a ‘friend’ like you to help me achieve this amazing new image.

    I wanted to request a video idea…

    I love how you have made a ton of videos focusing on each body part. However, I feel there are not many videos that cover biceps. Your new VS Model and Bikini Arms video DO cover the biceps BEAUTIFULLY… however, it would be nice to have a video covering the biceps… whether a short challenge or a 10 min video. Many of your arm videos cover the triceps and to be honest… my triceps are dead! lol

    If you needed ideas for a video, perhaps this can help. Or even a video using the stretch bands!

    Take care of yourself! I am cheering for you!


  77. cora says:

    did it yesterday! 22 mins! so proud!. the squats and lunges killed me, so I did 50 of them back to back with an exercise (e.g. 50 squats, 100 crunches, then 50 squats again). I hope that still counts! I really love your workouts and especially your eating advice. I so love bread, and its so hard for me not to eat one in a day! Your workouts help me get back on track!

  78. Julia says:

    I’m going to try this tomorrow, since it’s really late right now lol. Cassey – how is your show prep going? Updates please 🙂

  79. MyYellowBike says:

    Showed this to some Hmong over in St. Paul, the Gran Torino story is a real one, Detroit gave them a tax break to film it there but it’s really about the Twin Cities and I tell all the people here about Blogilates. Real cool. Wonder how the name came about? A blog? I suppose. The Pilates videos are excellent too.

  80. Amy says:

    Oh my gosh… I didn’t finish it, but my mom walked downstairs while I was doing it asking if I was okay. She thought my heavy breathing was the noise of me throwing up… And she could hear my huffing all the way from upstairs…

  81. Mickey says:

    Just discovered your blog and I love it! Omg! This workout was killer! 30 minutes for me. Could barely finish the tricep dips:p wow!

  82. Gina says:

    This workout made me vomit, I heart u Cassey.

  83. Mia says:

    Hey Cassie!

    Wow! This took me about a good 35 minutes to complete but its just what the POPsters ordered! I love love love your workouts girlie! I share them with all of my health coaching clients (a.k.a. my Blissful Chicks!).

  84. As someone who’s a bit of a guru when it comes to theoretical “best practices” in concerns to working out, I totally support this 1000 work out idea. Those exercises are BOSS for both men and women, if you did that 4 times a week you’d see some results within a month. Skipping rope will probably be the hardest for most people (jump rope is a beast).

    That said, I’d like to offer a criticism I hope you’ll take constructively.

    The crunches should have variations to foster better results. I’m not a fanboy of P90x but P90 has an ab workout that I would suggest be done in place of the 100 traditional crunches suggested in this post.

    20 reps of 10 different ab exercises; yes I realize that’s 200 b why NOT make it “The 1100 Workout”? 🙂

    You can find those positions at Livestrong’s website:

  85. Alex says:

    Cassey!! I am obsessed with your pilates videos!! They are killer workouts and I LOVE THEM!!!! I was wondering if you could do a really good/hard/long/fat burning cardio pilate work out and with the song “I knew you were trouble” from Taylor Swifts new album Red! Let me know if you can!!! Thanks for all of your fabulous videos!!!

    1. Alex says:

      ps im excited to try this 1000 workout. how long does it take the average person?

  86. Jenn says:

    Hey Cassey,

    I found this website on pinterest with $50 nike frees. I know you love them so maybe they will have a pair in your size/color. 🙂

  87. Libby says:

    19.23! I was stoked because the first 3 times I didn’t time it… but expected it was about half an hour. Then the first time I DID time it, after having yours there to achieve it was 21.25 so I’m chuffed I knocked 2 minutes off! I’m going to do it again tonight… wonder if I can cut it down anymore.

  88. Amy says:

    you’re from the southbay?? wthhh i thought you lived in socal! i used to be soo close to you, but now I moved to chicago lol i wish i could go! big fan! <3 youu!

  89. Katy says:

    19:10! God, those cobra pushups almost killed me. I had to do them in 10-15 rep sets. But I did it! Great workout again Cassie!

  90. Ro says:

    Yay! I’m sooo doing this workout!
    Summer’s almost here in this side of the globle
    and yeah, I wanna feel good and healthy!

  91. Audrey says:

    You’re gonna be at Clubsport-Fremont today? how exciting! i plan to stop by for the holiday party later. i’m totally gonna look for you… it’s gonna be like meeting a celebrity!! i can’t wait 🙂 hehe thanks girl~

  92. 31 minutes when i did it yesterday : ) love the 1000 workout. sweat is literally dripping off of my face when i do it, it’s grrrr8

  93. Caroline says:

    Cassey , please make workout for 1 hour long I’ll do it with big smile on my face , I promise ! LOVE YOU

  94. Pat says:

    I have videos of people doing those karate/martial arts kicks like Billie Blanks, I’ve got to believe they lean back a bit when they do those. But in the high knees image, to me it looks like Cassey is doing it a bit like a dance as well. It could be a matter of flexibility. Amazingly, I see people doing those high kicks, maybe they have some background, I generally can’t.

  95. kat says:

    Love the animated GIF, so cool! Can’t tell you how much I’m loving #DashingDecember, especially the VS stiletto workout and the festive challenge from yesterday – so much fun!
    Can’t WAIT for the DVD, it looks amazing and it’ll be great to get a full hour-long “class”, especially as I’ll be travelling shortly and won’t be able to get onto YouTube as often. I’m stoked for the community and app to go live so I can get to know loads of other POPsters and keep building the awesome strength and support! Thanks for taking such good care of us all, Cassey! <3

  96. SonnyMae says:

    50:51, Ha! Well…..I did it!!

  97. Emily says:

    This is cool. One little thing though: Shaun T of Insanity says that when you’re doing high knees, you’re not supposed to lean back because that makes it easier– he says you’re supposed to engage your abs and stay perfectly vertical to avoid putting pressure on your lower back. Just a suggestion and I might be wrong since it is a .gif and maybe in the video it looks totally different.

  98. Katie says:

    Phew! Those Tricep dips and bridge pulses were killer! Loved this workout for a little break from my usual cardio! And I must say I love that you offer gifs so I know I’m doing the move right! xo

  99. Sarah says:

    I love this workout. I’ve done it twice already and timed it last time…only I forgot to turn the timer off when I was sprawled on the floor trying to recover. 😛 I think it was about 23 minutes. Good, I have a goal to work toward getting it down to 18!

    Congrats on the new DVD! So excited for you!

  100. Asha says:

    Is the DVD gonna be in stores? Or just on

  101. teilzeitDAU says:

    btw: gif no.5 is HILARIOUS!!! 😀
    you look like one of those entertainers that would dress in like striped shirts, a bowler hat and a cane and go “rah-pah para-ra-ra rah-pah- pah-rah”

    u kno what i mean? 🙂

    <3 it!

  102. Ilse says:

    I tried the workout today, couldn’t do much more than the ‘500 workout’, sadly. Had to cut nearly everything in half. Got so out of shape this summer! Your workouts motivate me to get back on track 🙂 Could you do some more ‘mini workouts’, the ones where you exercise on 1 song? Like the call me maybe squats.

    1. teilzeitDAU says:

      did u check out the “challenges” in the workout index above yet? you’ll find quite a few one-song workouts there.
      also check out the “backless dress workout” in the “back” section of the workout index above. i love that one bc it’s quick’n’easy and a perfect early morning pick-me-up thing 🙂

      1. Ilse says:

        Yeah, I’ve done them all on basically the day they were uploaded and they’re my favourite workouts videos from Cassey 🙂 But I’d like some new moves on new songs!

  103. teilzeitDAU says:

    ooooh i’m super excited for the dvd to be released, aaah!! got my mouseclicker ready #clickclickclick 🙂

    oooooh and i’m super curious about the gift that you’re talking about, aaah! you successfully put my mind into xmas mode! could it be the app that is being set up? or what could it possibly be? #tryingtofigureout
    ahhh so exciting!

    wish i could come to your merchant fair event! however, even an airplane couldn’t get me there on time, so i’ll just rely on your tweeting or blogging about how it went afterwards 🙂

  104. Amanda Catron says:

    The background of inspirational tanks looks SOOOO good in the GIF’s! Well done!

  105. kate says:

    Will the dvd be available for region 2????

  106. NathDaredz says:

    hahaha I love it.
