Review: NEW 10 Minute Solution Tighten & Tone Pilates

Lara leads this workout in an open set on a round pedestal. You will only need the included exercise band for this workout. Each 10 minute solution can be played alone or you can mix & match to create a custom workout.
Tightened & Tone Core: This floor pilates core routine includes the hundred, top taps, roll downs, teaser adding rotation, X crunches, and knee drops.
Defined Arms & Shoulders: Lara begins with kneeling work: hug a tree, arm circles, tri work, sword & military press before moving to side plank w/ arm raises adding a hip drop. Standing work includes: w/ a front to side raise. back fly, torso twist w/ static arms & a shoulder hold.
Trim & Slim Lower Body: Lara begins with a bridge series adding in leg circles, then moves to a side lying leg lift series. She concludes with side plank with kick outs.
Total Body: This is standing ballet inspired pilates routine. Exercises include: pliet relavets, spinal twists and arm circles, balance stick & arm extensions, kick & tri work, bi curls with rear leg extensions.
Long & Lean Stretch: I usually dont do the stretch segments of dvds but decided to give this one a try and I was impressed. She covers almost every muscle group in a short amount of time and using the band really increased the effectiveness of the stretches. You start with lying lower body stretches, move into seated upper & lower body stretches & conclude with standing side, & shoulder stretches.
I’m a fan of Lara & of 10 Minute Solutions so it is no surprise that I really enjoyed this. Love the use of the band & Lara really does a great job of utilizing it for most every exercise. She is a very knowledgeable instructor with a confident & comfortable instruction style. Definitely has a place in my fitness library and will get a lot of use. I received this dvd to review.
