Not alot- it is a take it or leave it deal- waste of time.. www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAUQd1xfyPs
actually I meet one in two women at the age of 30 with brittle bones.. Tax your muscles and bones! I am visiting and helping young women whom fall of bikes, or slip down steps breaking their necks! Where if stronger would be banged around and usually bruised.. They themselfs didn't think the falls were heavy- many are very sad to find out when tests come back they will be brittle as hell when 50+..
I now do exercise I know helps- because when you do all this other stuff- when you fall the damage is done..
Stretching before and efter strength training also keeps me elastic with a spinal injury.. A spinal injury needs strong muscles to keep the discs in place...
I did classes 6 years and all I achieved was a sports spinal injury 3 times a week...
I now do strength training and got results within two years.. i253.photobucket.com/albums/hh54/Rena1965/
I did all those fad classes in the pink outfit at 23 years of age- I don't anymore at 45.. Looking at the photos weight training has defined my legs better now at 45.. I have actual shape.. I don't get this from a run of the mill standard class or dvd- I had to sew a program together for my body alone not 20 other women huffing and puffing! When I do these yoga tapes at home -little or not effect- because strength training taxes the muscles better and more effectively. They are just a extended stretch to my body lol.
Also when I see instructors supplimenting their classes with stuff in the weight room.. I stay put lol.. If they don't have faith it is enough why should I- some instructors are doing up to 4-5 classes a week it should be enough to maintain the perfect body- I go figure lol??? What people say and do- well body language speaks higher.. Why are they over training in my eyes? I should rude and ask one or two of them- why.. Sometimes I can't see the difference between them and their class members lol..
The body definition doesn't equal the time used.. We only see the extra ordinary people put out tapes and dvds.. Many instructors look like nothing to write home about..
