You will need to follow the Trainer Breakdown before proceeding with the workout as due to the camera angle in the class you’ll miss that Tracy dips from her left hand to her elbow during the first leg move. This week’s breakdown is taken by Evan and she gives lots of detailed helpful instructions which you may miss or not even think about if you just follow the workout
Time: 32 minutes
Areas worked: Arms, legs and stomach
Equipment needed: 1lb hand weights (Tracy uses 3lbs), 1lb ankle weights X3 (Tracy uses 2X 1.5 lb and 1X 1.5lb), a towel, a smooth surface to slide down and extra support for your knees if you need it.
The trouble with a lot of the streaming for beginners classes is they’re not actually for beginners. Most of them are her normal masterclasses with sections cut out to make it a shorter workout and as there are no beginners masterclasses on the timetable at her studios none of these are designed for beginners. So the best way to ensure you’re doing a streaming workout for beginners is if Tracy is just taking the class by herself or with other instructors, like in Week 11. In fact week 11 is the first beginners streaming class that doesn’t include clients so we know it’s just designed for us, at home beginners.
This class takes place in the East Hampton Studio. This workout follows the format of 2 songs for non weighted arms/stretches, 2 songs for arms with weights, the leg series and then crunches. The level is pretty easy, if you were to compare it to meta day 1-10 it’s a lot easier as there are lower reps of the moves and they’re just easier moves. This doesn’t mean that you won’t get a good workout!
The arms are fun and quite satisfying, the stretches are really good and you feel like you’re getting a lot of movement. There is a small amount of jumping, which I’m not a fan of, but it’s only a little bit so it’s ok.
The leg moves aren’t too challenging, I used a thicker mat during this workout as there is a leg move which you have to swivel your knee on. Although Tracy uses 2 ankle weights on one leg during certain moves it’s actually not that hard and those particular moves are quite basic.
