Herbalife24FIT DVD Review Phase 1 Stability dvd – disc 2 – shoulder stabilization

April 28th, 2012

 

Phase 1 – Stability – Disc 2 which is for shoulder stabilization – My review – day 3

The Herbalife24FIT workout started off with a quick warm up of stretches closely followed by exercise.  The idea of shoulder stabilization comes from the fact that it is one of the weakest points in the body, is very mobile and everybody should be doing these exercises to strengthen their shoulder joints.  Shoulder stabilization exercises should be done with the neck relaxed, controlled movements and the slower the better.  These exercises will strengthen the shoulder joints and give us balanced healthy bodies. 

We did exercises for triceps, biceps, lower body, core, something called internal and external rotation which was performed on the mat, with light weighted dumbbells, the plank and lastly push-ups.Hope I’ve not missed anything out !  This workout I had to study closely to get the hang of how to use the dumbbells and to make sure my body was in the correct position.  Good thing about the Herbalife24FIT workout (for me) is that exercises are repeated over the coming weeks, so I will have chance to improve.  Practice makes perfect !

Roll on tommorow when I repeat Metabolic dvd – disc 4 low impact aerobic moves for more fat burning.

Herbalife24FIT DVD Review Phase 1 Stability on Day 2 Metabolic Workout

April 26th, 2012

 

Phase 1 – Stability – Disc 4 which is a metabolic workout – My review – day 2

Just finished the day 2 metabolic workout and I must say I enjoyed it – it’s very much like low impact aerobics, but the key thing was it was burning fat !  Maybe a bit tame for all you fit people out there but this is only phase 1 and  I know it will get harder as you go though all the 3 phases.

A few stretching exercises at the start of the Herbalife24FIT dvd metabolic workout, then kept up a steady pace going through “fat burning” moves.  Need a solid floor to do your metabolic workout as there is a bit of walking/jogging on the spot, step tapping, knee raising using arms, kicks, footballer player moves,step pushing, push backs and skipping – think that was it !  total workout 30 minutes.

Felt good at the end of it, looking forward to my next Phase 1 Stability dvd – disc 2 – shoulder stabilization.
