Here are a few of the reasons why:
1. Time Commitment: Lastics doesn't have chapters. Lots of people complain about this, but I thought it wouldn't be a big deal because I could fast forward, etc. In the end, I don't have the patience for that, and I rarely have the time to do the entire video, so I pretty much always reach for Bendy Body.
2. Repetitiveness: I find Lastics to be really repetitive -- tons of standing, bending over, straightening knees. Tons of time spent on hamstrings. Bendy Body does a good job of pacing - loosening a muscle well and then moving on.
3. Inspiration: When I do the Bendy Body video, my husband will see the stretch Kristina has and exclaim "That's insane." I definitely can't get anywhere near Kristina's backbends and won't be able to any day soon (if ever), but seeing her do something truly amazing on screen while explaining how to get there is really inspirational. Lastics feels much less "wow" in comparison.
4. Personality: Neither instructor has an annoying personality. However, Kristina has this sultry-secret-seductress but down-to-earth-approachable thing going on that is mesmerizing.
She said this one is most likely best for me (lower back issues) b/c there is a back release in" Bendy Body". I really Love this video and workout it is my favorite next to Rachel Brice's "Serpentine" DVD (yoga & Bellydance)
Kristina is a excellent coach and talks through each stretch and her teaching style is very good as she describes what you may feel (Pinchy) and she doesn't try to make you do more than you ought too. Although I'm not a beginner to yoga or bellydancing anyone who has any issues, knees, back etc should prob work with this video before using "bendy body" which is more advanced. This is a REALLY good vigorous workout! It I found her blog and video on Bellydance (dot)com. I would recommend this video for all dancers, people who have some structural issues, yoga people,weight lifters, even a beginner if they take it slow could do this b/c she doesn't let you go beyond your limits, of flexibility.
