1. Lower Body. Although this segment uses no weights, it was probably the most challenging of the five. Kimberly begins with simple squats and side-to-side lunges, but she eventually adds in bouncing the ball and raising it overhead; combined with the high number of repetitions, you'll be really working here. Next comes some glute work while lying face down on the ball, and finally, there is a tough hamstring portion performed lying with your feet on the ball.
2. Upper Body. This segment was probably the most disappointing, especially given that Kimberly uses such light weights (I believe she is using 3#). She begins by warming up the upper body with push-ups (an easier version with hands on the ball) and then moves into an upper body circuit. The circuit includes rows, tricep kickbacks, bicep curls, shoulder presses, side raises, and front raises; it is repeated three times, each time adding a few new moves such as flyes/rear flyes. Kimberly moves quickly, which makes it difficult to vary your weights as needed (I tried to switch between 5# and 8#).
3. Core. Kimberly does warm you up here with some spinal rolls and core twists holding the ball.Read more ›
Love it, love it, love it!
In the different workouts there is lower body and upper body, cardio, core and one for increasing flexibility. The routines are all creative and interesting. You aren't just doing the usual crunches but different exercises to keep this fresh. The instructor Kimberly, is motivating and she makes it fun. I like the cardio section the best. She makes it easy to follow because she is another good cuer. You always know what's next so it's easy to keep up with. I really like this and while it's not the most challenging, it's enjoyable and mixes up my routine to keep me from getting bored.
I tried the 'as seen on tv' core stability ball workout and it was great, too, but I was never able to customize it to my needs and time constraints. Also, they would send a new video to me every other month, whether it would fit for me or not -- and if it did not fit for me, they would give me the option of sending it back -- on MY dime. This program never gets boring and I can certainly find 10-20 minutes in my day to do this workout on the weekdays, and I walk with my daughter on the weekends. When I do finally feel like it is too much of a routine, I'm going to try the 10 Minute Yoga Solution to mix and match with this one just to bring something different into the mix. It is definitely straight forward and efficient. Do remember, however, even if you only work out for 10 minutes, there is no cool down at the end of each section. Do some slow pacing around and slow, deep breathing stretches afterward for 5 minutes or so to get your heart rate back to an acceptable level.
A final thought...., if you don't care about anything else I've said, do know that out of the 22 exercise videos I've purchased (cardio, dance, Latin, bellydance, yoga, taichi, qigong -- I like trying new things), this is the fastest working fitness solution I have ever used!
