Like so many of Tracy’s moves this takes some getting used to and you may find that one side is easier than the other. It helps if you make sure you keep your supporting hand right under your shoulder.
Another brain challenging move from Tracy, the balancing aspect isn’t actually as hard as it looks, I found the hardest part to be going from plank to one knee on the floor, it feels so unnatural but no doubt that’s building new neural pathways just as Tracy intended.
I love that this move is so nice and easy!
Tracy demonstrates 3 moves that incorporate a broomstick handle. I really like these moves, apart from making sure the stick stays touching the ground they’re not too challenging. Watching this workout it’s hard to believe that Bethenny works out at the Tracy Anderson studios as her form is so bad! What must she be doing there?! There’s a horrible awkward bit at the end where Bethenny grabs Tracy’s bum and you can just see that Tracy feels really uncomfortable about it and gets giggly and embarrassed. 😦
This move is tricky! I thought I was good with the balance stuff, but this move is definitely hard. It feels like Tracy is moving in slow motion, how does she manage to have her arm lifted for so long? Your brain is definitely engaged in this workout, I’m really looking forward to when I can master this!
In this promo clip Tracy demos 3 plank/push up moves, you’ve probably seen these moves already but it’s nice to get the push up one in. Tracy’s really pushing the exercise attire boundaries by wearing nude tights (pantyhose for those using US English) under her shorts! You can clearly see the waist band around her stomach. Perhaps she’s wearing these for modesty reasons under her shorts- although leggings would work, or just wear leggings? I really thought tights would be uncomfortable to workout in, especially as Tracy has spoken out about how you should work out in comfortable non restrictive clothing, has anyone tried this? It definitely not something I’m going to try, my ladder-free tights are too precious!
I think that Tracy taking the time to record these videos for reimagine was a really nice thing to do. Although I personally haven’t experienced not being connected to myself, I’ve heard that a lot of people experience it when they’re unwell, their hormones are changing or they’re pregnant/have just had a baby. This is full of lots nice stretches and it doesn’t really feel like a workout, except maybe in your arms. In one of the moves the move isn’t quite the same on both sides- she misses the dip and the reps aren’t the same for a few of the moves either.
