There are three workouts that focus on abs:
o Lean, Long, & Strong (12 min) - lots of isometric, pilates inspired moves. This one was the easiest one for me, and I would be likely to use it as an add-on.
o Classic Abwork (12 min) - more traditional ab work, including crunches with different arm movements, bicycles, and v-sits.
o Absolute Challenge (7 minutes) - the most advanced ab routine.
Sleek Physique (12 minutes) is all plank variations and I LOVED this segment. It is my favorite. I did have some DOMS in my hips and shoulders the next day. It is also pretty challenging and she does provide the modification of keeping your knees down if it is too difficult. Planks include:
o Full plank variations: full plank, lifting knee to chest, lifting knee across chest to opposite elbow
o Forearm plank variations: Forearm planks, single leg forearm plank pulsing leg back, raising body up and down, moving body forward and back.
o T-stand side plank on each side
o Side plank variations with forearm down: reaching arms up over and then under, hip pulses
o Reverse plank with hip pulses and then holding
Total Core Fast Blast is only 5 minutes. I think it would be more appropriate as an add-on, then a workout on it's own. It includes chair pose variations, full plank lifting one hand, crunches, and single leg bridge variations.
Metabolism Bootcamp (12 minutes) - This is the only segment I have not completed yet.Read more ›
I also own Suzanne's 10 Minute Solutions DVD: Pilates Perfect Body; which is another incredible workout!
Gorgeous Core can be done by women and men of all ages!
While it is an intense 60 minute ab-blasting session, I find great comfort in all of the modifications that Suzanne provides throughout Gorgeous Core. I am a woman in my late 50's and fully benefit from each of the workout blasts; as not only are they difficult and result driven, they are also amazing for the overall alignment of the body...something that I have truly grown to need in my workout regime.
Suzanne takes a step by step journey on how to do abdominal work correctly and effectively. The days of doing crunches are long gone, and now I actually enjoy working my core. Since being introduced to Suzanne and her method, I have noticed a significant difference in my shape...I am longer, leaner, and my overall postural alignment is more intact now than ever.
My only regret after purchasing this DVD is that I do not live in Franklin Tennessee...as I would be attending BarreAmped classes at Seren Motus Fitness Studios regularly!
Nevertheless, I feel fully challenged and motivated by Suzanne's Gorgeous Core and truly believe that I am on my way to having the strongest physique possible.
