I know it’s been awhile, and I apologize. I’ve just been really focusing a lot on my health these past couple of months, so I had to reduce my workload as much as possible.
I have still been keeping up with my workouts though, and I wanted to just share very quickly with you what I have been doing.
I’m currently doing a rotation of Essentrics and/or Classical Stretch with 10 Minute Solution Pilates Perfect Body with Suzanne Bowen.
I’m all about short workouts right now, and I’m getting nice results with the Full Body Workout from the Essentrics Strength and Stretch in Motion DVD or the Lose a Pants Size and Full Body Posture Workout from Classical Stretch Season 8 DVD. These two workouts are very similar and work great. So if you can’t afford the Classical Stretch set or you’re not sure you want to invest in it just yet, the Essentrics workout will do just fine.
I also added the Silhouette and Arms segments from the 10 Minute Solution Pilates Perfect Body DVD because I just felt like my arms needed a little more work. It’s only been about two weeks since I have been consistently doing the arm segment 3 times a week, but I really like my results so far. The arm workout is pretty challenging and thoroughly works the triceps without adding bulk.
Even better, I discovered that the entire workouts can be found on YouTube, so you don’t even have to purchase them if you don’t want to! I’ve posted them here for your convenience, if you’d like to give them a shot :).

So what does my exact rotation look like?
I thought you’d never ask! 😉
Here is what I am doing now:
Monday: Classical Stretch: Lose a Pants Size OR Essentrics: Full Body Workout (25 minutes) + Pilates Perfect Arms (10 minutes)
Tuesday: Ultimate Leg Sculptor (30 minutes)
Wednesday: Classical Stretch: Lose a Pants Size OR Essentrics: Full Body Workout + Pilates Perfect Arms
Thursday: Pilates Perfect Silhouette (10 minutes)
Friday: Ultimate Leg Sculptor (30 minutes) + Pilates Perfect Arms (10 minutes)
And that’s it! I love this rotation schedule because it has ZERO dread factor and it’s so easy to do even on days when you just don’t really feel like doing much. If you notice, on Thursdays I only do one 10 minute segment because usually that’s all I feel like doing :). If I happen to feel like doing more, I will just pick an Essentrics or Classical Stretch workout and be done with it!
