The beginning Callanetics is a good intro...I did not use it myself but have watched sections on it...each one of her routines are good infact..she does a lot of explaining and has modifications that can be done for specific problems...it is a good idea to watch it first, there are some exercises that people with knee problems shouldn't do..the pelvic tilt, rotations, and wave I think but I have been able to incorporate some of them...she is so calm in her direction to and seems to just know when you are going to tighten up something or shift your weight the wrong way and reminds you to shift back and relax...the next step is the AM/PM tape...the 10/10 is a big jump so you can do it just do less reps of things...I started with 65/100 but even less than that will help you get in the right positions. Good luck Denise.

Thanks for the tip! I have knee problems, old rotator tear, tennis elbow at times...plantar fascitus - so I will definitely watch it first. I hope I'll be able to do it with my injuries - been pretty limited with what I can do. I weight train with nautilus machines right now (just started back), wonder if I can do both? Is it like weight training where you need to take a day off in between?

It is totally different than anything else I have done. The 10/10 video is good for 3 times a week, any more than that is a little much for me. It is a little like a cross between weight training (only you are using your own body weight with a lot of reps)...like palates (only not as jerky..if that makes any sense) and kinda like yoga (some absolutely wonderful stretches). I know different...I have done it before and gotten a "slammin body" out of it as in woman saying I have the best legs...LOL So it does work, and it is great for your back, the stomach exercises can bother your neck a bit...just put your hands behind your head for support..that does the trick..and you may get a few charlie horse type things, you are using some muscles that don't get used much..but that is where the toning really matters...and she is very positive about modifying and not forcing yourself...it is a process to get the right position, and practise...it is not an all or nothing thing...you work up your reps at your pace, take rests when you have to and feel the rewards no matter how little you can do at first...take your time please...don't do too much at first...it is so worth it when you start to get up to the reps and keep up with the tape..that is what I like most of all about her routines..I never feel like I am failing if I can't do something and it is slow enough that I can not feel like I am competing with the people on the tape...if that makes any sense to you.LOL Again if I can help you in any way I will...just ask.

I think I have found a combination that will really work for me...on the days that I don't do the 10/10 video I think I will do either the AM or PM routind and a walking routine...I really liked it today.

Welcome!

I decided to break my workout into two sessions and I believe it is going to work out well for me.

Callanetics, 10 Years Younger in 10 Hours!
I completed 1 hour!
2009: 23 hours
January goal: 13 hours
13 out of 13 completed!

Well done on getting your 13 sessions in January Teri, I hope to get 12 in for February of the 10/10 and alternate the AM and PM routines on the other days with a walking routine added to those days.

What do you mean you broke your workout into two sessions?

It sounds like you have a great routine scheduled for February. Twelve hours for the month of February sounds like a good number to me too.

I did the first half of Callanetics and then after a short break, I finished the other half. I still can't believe how hard it is to try and relax!

No exercise for me tomorrow! I've earned my day off and will resume my week on Monday. Monday is Walk Away the Pounds and I will be back on Tuesday to get my first hour of Callanetics done for the month February.

Thanks Teri, I like the split routine that she has...20 minutes AM and 20 minutes PM...that is really good if you want to split it up into morning and night and you actually get more exercises and a few different ones in, it doesn't have the "put your foot on the ballet bar and stretch over" though and that is one of my favourite of the stretches.

Thanks for telling me your plan do you do them on certain days?
