Today’s workout comes from the folks at HASfit.com (HAS is Heart and Soul – I like that!) – it’s a basic video, but it resonates with me. I like that they give you a separate warm up (5 minute) and cool down (15 minute) session, separate from the 10 minute workout. You can choose to do (or not do) them – but I urge you to give them a try. Coach Kozak taught me something new (I haven’t verified his theory, however): for warmup routines he preaches dynamic stretching warm up exercises and for cooldown routines he prefers shorter static stretches.
Some of the things I like about this video:
- it targets belly fat (I am ready to take mine off!)
- Freddy keeps reminding us – nicely – that it’s okay to modify the moves to our own current fitness levels
- during the workout and the pre- post-stretching routines, both Freddy and Coach let us know which muscles we are attending to with each move.
- I can do these!
- At the end, I feel like I’ve worked out, but I’m not wiped out and covered in sweat.
Those reasons along with my “regular” requirements (workouts that can be done in a limited space, not too many floor moves since I have a tile floor and no mat yet, 10 minutes in length) has this one high on my recommend list. I’m actually looking forward to parts 2 and 3!
