The FIRM Parts Lower Body Review

The FIRM Parts Lower Body 
Susan Harris, Janet Jones-Gretzky, Sandahl Bergman, LaReine Chabut, Jayne Poteet

This is a 30 minute lower body floor work workout. The sections are compiled from five of the six original Firm Classics-all but Volume 4. You will need ankle weights and some dumbbells for this workout. Kathy Derry introduces the next segments and ties the workout together since its spliced from other workouts. I like this workout as an addon to other dvds and for a change of pace. Its also nice for days you cant/dont want to wear shoes.

Some of the exercises in this workout are: bridge work, lying hip extensions, inner thigh abductions, donkey kicks and variations of. Its all lower body work- no abs.

I like floor work because it does work your muscles in ways that standing lower body doesnt. You will feel this workout the next day in your glutes in particular but also your hips and thighs. Floor work compliments standing lower body work well, does not replace it in my opinion.

I would rate this workout an intermediate as far as floor work is concerned. Using heavy dumbbells and ankle weights will up the intensity. If you are a fan of the Classics and enjoy floorwork, you will enjoy this workout-I do.
