Sculpt your body from head to toe with this 20-minute strength routine.
This is a good, well-rounded workout. Heavy emphasis on squats and lunges, as well as focusing on your core. I agree with folks that say this is an intermediate workout. You should have a good base of doing a proper squat and can maintain good form when lifting weights.
I think I have this video memorized. It's been on my favorites bar for over a year. Thanks Canyon Ranch and Heather for a great workout, beautiful scenery and encouragement to keep going. Would like to see more from Canyon Ranch in the future.
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 NOT a beginner workout. It is an intermediate level so for those that do not exercise already or have mobility issues, I would try something else to begin.
Thanks...this is an awesome video!
Loved this workout!
Excellent. Loved every minute of it!
I haven't worked out consistently for a long time. This work out is just what I need. Thank you.
I thought this was an excellent workout. Again, as I've commented in the past, I wish there was an accompanying printable version of this workout.
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.
Good combination of exercises. A few advanced movements I wasn't prepared for. The video doesn't have warm-up or cool-down.
This was great. I needed a quick strengthen exerciser.
