Hi Ladies –
I have completed week three of my Ballet Body results case study. Unfortunately I was only able to get two workouts in this past week.
But that’s okay! The two workouts I did get in were great :).
Something interesting I noticed is that my form is getting much better. In the beginning I had trouble stretching my legs/arms straight (if you do barre or Pilates, you know what I am talking about) during the movements. It seemed I was contracting my muscles more than I was stretching and lengthening them.
But now, three weeks in, I am able to really lengthen my limbs during the exercises. Because I am able to hold better form, the exercises are actually getting MUCH harder. My legs were trembling during the inner and outer thigh sequences, and I had to stop a couple of times to take breaks.
Something else I noticed, which was a bit of a surprise, was that my quads were a bit sore for a couple of days following the last workout I did. The bridges work the quads indirectly, but I didn’t expect to get soreness from them at all. So that was a nice surprise, and good proof and reassurance for those of you who prefer to avoid quad heavy workouts.
So far, my glutes are more lifted and my legs are getting some nice visible definition 😉 I don’t plan on stopping this workout anytime soon. I think this might be a “forever workout.”
Well, that’s all for today, I will be back next week with week 4 of my Ballet Beautiful Total Body Workout results case study.
Can’t wait! 🙂
