My complaint is with the formatting and the way the information is presented. It really is just a collection of exercises with no real context or instruction for how and when to use what. The instruction for the first DVD is to spend a month with that DVD. How? What should I do everyday? There are at least 3 hours of video on the first disk. Do you want me so spend 3 hours everyday for month doing this? If I need to spend a month with it, maybe it could have been divided into 4 weekly programs, or 7 daily programs to repeat 4 times. Anything so that I have some structure or clarity about what to do next...
The second DVD is about 9 different exercise routines, which I assume are intended to be done daily. The lengths of each routing varies wildly from about 5 mins up to about 45 mins. Why should I choose one of these routines over another? What does each routine emphasize? Should I start with one and move to another?
None of these questions are addressed, meaning I have just made it up as I went along. One day a few weeks ago I tried doing a new routine and felt that horrible twinge that I had not felt since starting the founder challenge. Obviously I was doing something wrong, but there was no instruction as to what I could do about it.
It seems like the DVD was an effort to get as much of Eric Goodman's exercises out there. I think scaling it down and focusing on a smaller set of exercises but giving each one the proper context would make this material more approachable for a layman.
I found a video online of Dr Goodman with Jo Mercola and I found that video more informative and helpful than this DVD because it had more of that context information.
I have chronic back and sciatic pain despite being a moderately athletic person who cross-trains 4 days/week. While I have found that exercising regularly and seeing a chiropractor has helped alleviate some pain, it only seems to be temporary because when I go back to work, the pain returns. I have been a dental hygienist for almost 20 years...almost everyone who works in dentistry for this length of time has shoulder, neck or back problems....we sit all day with terrible posture. For the past 15 years, I have spent thousands of dollars on different forms of therapy and have just started seeing a chiropractor again. He recently found the core of my problem and recommended certain exercises to help strengthen specific back and glute muscles. The Foundation Training videos claims to target and strengthen all the muscles to support good posture and a healthier, stronger back and to relieve pain.
I just received the DVDs a few days ago and have done at least 20-50 minutes of the video every day. I was expecting a low resolution, poor quality video but was pleasantly surprised to find the opposite. The instructions and demostrations are very easy to follow---very precise and clear and you don't need to be in prime yoga shape to do any of the exercises. Anyone can do this and once you are more familiar with the stretches, you can do this anywhere throughout the day (which Eric recommends doing the Founder pose as much as possible). There is no equipment needed, a mat and chair is optional. The nice thing about this is that I don't feel that I need to do the entire video if I'm short on time; even 15 minutes seems to help and you can definitely feel a real good stretch in all the right places.
It's too early for me to say if Foundation Training is going to help completely alleviate my pain; however, I can say that it is targeting all my weak spots and seems to be helping my posture---I am already standing taller with my shoulders back. This purchase has been well worth it so far...less expensive than a visit to my chiropractor.
