""The Method Dynamic Firming & Flexing" workout is a peaceful escape from your daily challenges. Lakey Evans guides you through three target specific workouts. You can do all the workouts in one day and spend one full hour or you can choose from a Total Body Workout, Upper Body Workout or Lower Body Workout.
Total Body Flexibility (16 minutes) - A head-to-toe conditioning workout that will give your entire body a boost of energy. In this segment, your body will warm nicely and your arms and legs will tingle with all the new blood flow. You will do some side stretches, lots of forward bending.
Upper Body Flexibility (23 minutes) - Helps to tone the muscles of the neck, shoulder girdle and upper back. Dissolves stress and tension. As you continue into this segment, you will feel invigorated. Still, you are moving slowly. There are lots of creative transitions and you stretch and tone more than just your upper body. You get down on the floor and enjoy lots of deep stretching now that your muscles are warmed up. You will need an exercise band here for the floor workout.
Lower Body Flexibility (21 minutes) - Release stress in the lower back, hip, knee and ankle joints. You start with standing and then move into downward dog, cobra and cat pose. Lots of creative stretching for areas you really need to work on. You will also need an exercise band here.
This DVD workout is a combination of Yoga, Pilates and Precision Firming with live percussion and harp. If you are familiar with yoga, you will recognize the sun salutations, plank position, cobra, cat pose. The vinyasa style yoga with postures flowing spontaneously in a smooth sequence makes this an enjoyable and relaxing routine.
If you want to move lymph around in your body, this Firming and Flexing workout should do it. The exercises have a nice full range of motion.
"You have more lymphatic fluid in your body than blood. Lymph bathes every cell, playing an important role in immunity and detoxification. ...yoga is great for improving lymphatic circulation." ~pg. 156, The Metabolic Plan by Stephen Cherniske
Portions of this workout reminded me of some of the movements in "The Method All In One Workout." The difference is that all the exercises in this DVD are slow and controlled. If there are any dance movements, they are done while standing in one place. There is no fancy footwork here! Thankfully.
Lakey Evans gives excellent instruction and educates you in many things, like listening to your body to know how far you should go in a stretch. This perhaps one of the best "All-Over-Body Stretches" you will ever experience. I like using this workout in the evenings.
You will need: Yoga Mat, Exercise band (better than a towel)
Results: You will feel taller, stronger and move like a dancer.
Alternate this DVD with any workout or for a total body makeover, use this DVD in combination with the Method Dynamic Toning and Method Dynamic Cardio workouts.
