correct form is key"
True!
And rather funny, as I JUST finished telling son #3 that as we worked out together - he said he couldn't do the arms and legs together without the legs going wrong, and I told him basically, the rest of what you just said - but before I'd read it emoticon

You'll get there. Try to view the challenge of the DVD as an opportunity for growth. The more you work at it, the better you'll get and over time you will master it--and what a feeling of accomplishment that will be!

Remember that correct form is key. If a combination of arms and legs is too challenging for you to follow along with while maintaining safe, correct form, there's no harm at all in focusing on just the legs or just the arms. Feel free to break it up like that as much as you need to. Once you master a certain move with just one portion of the body, it'll be easier to incorporate the other portion of the body--whatever works for you!

Good luck. I know you can do it if you stick it out.

Nicole

All I can say is keep trying emoticon

When you keep on and keep on trying the cardio burst (which has, I think, some of the trickiest footwork) you EVENTUALLY will get the hang of it. I think that I stopped stumbling over my feet sometime during week 3 emoticon

Another challenge I had was modifying some of the moves for a small space. . . . . . And remembering that, when Coach Nicole says "box step" she does NOT mean a WALTZ step, LOL!

Hi! emoticon I'm equally uncoordinated! I know I should watch the workout through ahead of time, but I never do that. I just fumble my way through it. I've tried to focus on just arms or just legs, but that doesn't work for me. I just struggle through and try my best. The more I do a workout, the better I get at it. (Although I'm still nowhere near as graceful as I feel that I look when I do the workout!)
But hey, if focusing on just lower body, then upper body, and finally total body movement works for you, go for it! emoticon
Stick with it! Any movement is better than none!

Hi All. New to the 28 day bootcamp video, working out with my daughter. Wow, are we not dancers emoticon . Hoping that this gets us both in shape and better coordination. Does anyone have advice how not to get frustrated? Is it better to learn the leg movements first, then add the arms, or do you just manage the best you can and hope for divine intervention? Day one is done, but it was so much less than pretty.
