Arms: this segments uses weights, pushups, etc. to tone your arms and chest.
Thighs: the use of a chair is required in this one. They squat, lunge and lift legs. (This one is my favorite. My thighs are burning after this).
Back: A wall is used for this one. (This targets my waist the most)
Glutes: A wall is used for this one. Lowering and lifting legs. (You will feel this in your glutes and thighs).
Core: Pretzeling your core and mini curl ups are done here. You will feel this if your set up is right. It is so important to pull in your abdominals while doing this.
Cool down: various stretches cool you down and leave you feeling relaxed.
I hope this helped!
This program does work. My muscles look lean and toned, sleeker than when I was a teen-aged competitive gymnast with frankly much less work. Love these guys! Please keep up the good work and please please produce move videos with the Amazon streaming options... who living in an urban environment has space for DVD's anymore?
To that extent, the "Gluteal Tone and Stretch" segment is FANTASTIC. It's 10 minutes long, but hits all the muscles back there and gives me the right kind of soreness the next day. I also feel stronger when taking the stairs or running, and I *think* everything's slowly starting to lift back there. Fair warning: the stretch at the end hurts like the dickens. Know your own limits and don't try to keep up with the instructor -- she is very, very bendy.
I also regularly do the "Thighs Tone and Stretch," as well (my thighs have always been a little big) but I've got a bum knee and this workout causes me a lot of pain unless I wear a brace. That said, my thighs aren't strong enough yet to do this routine without taking multiple breaks, but my thighs feel stronger without looking bulkier. I hope that trend continues.
I only really do those routines, though there are others on there. The "Pretzel Core" segment hurts my back (which, honestly, could be attributed more to a kickboxing injury than the routine), a "Stretch" segment that is mostly splits, and an "Upper Body" segment that's all pushups and free weights (I get the same effect with yoga and boxing, so I skip that one).
This is my first time trying any sort of Core Fusion workout, and I've done this DVD 3 times a week. It does what I wanted for my glutes, and I'm hoping it turns out the same for my thighs.
