Seated core video

Friday, January 20, 2012

Ok, a quick report here...I missed doing a video on Wednesday so yesterday I did the Wed. video, Seated Core exercises.

This is the one that asks you to pull the abdominal area WAY IN in order to make your leg move. First time I did this, I couldn't feel if I was doing anything different! But this week, I DID feel my abs kick in and realized when I was adding leg muscle to I was able to make the leg lift smaller and feel it just happening from the abs. Cool!

The other thing I noticed was that previously I have done the leaning-back abs exercise and let my back curve, rather than keeping it straight as instructed. SO my back muscles have been doing some of the work. Aha! When I keep the back straight, I feel the abs more.

Today I did the Pilates hips and thighs video, and it was definitely easier than last week. I can feel that this is going to be GREAT for those flabby upper leg parts that we love to hate... emoticon

45 minutes cardio, walking to and from Starbucks at 17-minute/mile pace, in pretty chilly temps! It felt like a fairly easy day. I guess I am ready to go to Rome and walk up and down those seven hills!

Happy weekend, Sparkies! GO CATS!

    OH what videos are you talking about, can you give me the link or whatever. I have back issues and knee ones too so am thinking on trying seated ones for when I just can't do the walking cos of my knee.
Great going and thanks in advance!
