I always find it hard to take these videos seriously when they say intermediate and she is using 2 lbs weights. Even if they are 5lbs weights, I'm sure that is not the weight she normally uses when doing shoulder presses.
This is very challenging and for that reason I wanted to do it in conjunction with Heather, but in all honesty it is too fast, she doesn't give you enough time to get into the various positions and the reps don't give you enough time to breath properly.
Very disappointing, because as a routine to watch and pick up tips, I enjoyed it, but Nicole would have been a much better demonstrator and working with her would have been far easier but probably taken twice as long or been in two parts.
There no warmup, cooldown or stretching. The instructor is very awkward in her movements, and there are too many lunges.

Can't hear it. Also, while I am sure that the location might be pleasant for the person doing the demonstration, the low quality of the video makes it distracting and not inviting or inspiring to those viewing. Stopped watching after 1 minute. Sorry I wasted my time trying especially after seeing so many similar comments. I will be far less likely to click on one of these next time.
I wish SparkPeople would quit using these video players, they're highly unstable. I don't have knee problems, but I feel like she's doing these moves too briskly

I have a service connected disability in my left knee. Usually i would not continue this, but if I don't my knee locks up anyway. If I do, my knee gives out...But I do have to exercise. I don't have mats or dumbells, but I do use a couple of heavy soup cans in the place of those and hard floors is all I have so a sleeping bag will just have to do. I will continue doing what I can in this video, and stop at what I cannot for now. Hopefully this will help me strengthen my left knee to work more. I do farm during spring/fall times and need this type of strengthener to help me with it.
