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.
This move isn’t actually that difficult, I think the ankle weights help. I love that there’s so much movement and it’s not just focused on one area.
This move is a lot easier than it looks and is oddly satisfying for your back
After class I grabbed a few sweaty good deed doers and had them put on their pink #movetocure bracelets in support of the @bcrfcure 💓 Couple of things 1. You can't see @jloganhorne @stevenbeltrani or @lashonna1020 (until I attack her) 2. There is a VERY rare appearance by @runandheider in the very back. 3. I have the sweetest assistant in the world and I have to tell her it's ok to YELL at me @meg.schiavoni 💓 4. My dear friend @interior.monologue was like "You want to do this now AFTER class" the point is that I hope everyone is buying their #movetocure bracelets because I will be giving you moves all month for breast cancer awareness 🎀💓 get your bracelets now at any of my studios cause it's the most important piece of jewelry you can sport this month.
You can definitely feel these moves working your waist and your hip flexor. The 3 moves progress in difficulty and are definitely harder than they look. The first move isn’t that bad, I think the fact that ankle weights aren’t included in these moves makes them easier. For the second move you may have to adjust your position to get your balance right and you’ll really feel the move in the waist/hip of the supporting leg. I actually quite like balancing on the ball, I like the balance aspect and the ball is quite comfy. The last move is SO difficult! I probably spent an extra 10 minutes just chasing the ball around the room whenever it launched off the back of my legs. I found this move SO hard, I could only do a few reps while the ball worked itself further away from the back of my knee and towards my foot, if anyone has any tips for keeping the ball in place please let me know.
This move is really satisfying and as it’s all performed on the side there isn’t awkward twisting or planking movements where you feel like if you compromise your posture you’re going to cause yourself an injury or not target the correct muscles. Love Tracy’s pants too.
You get a really good variety of moves in this workout and the moves aren’t crazy complicated like we know some of Tracy’s moves are! And you’ll get a great workout.
