Denise Austin: Pilates For Every Body ****** This Denise Austin DVD is divided into the following segments: -Warm up: dynamic and energetic -Pilates Floor: workout for abs -Pilates Twist: workout for the sides -Integrated Pilates Workout: exercises for legs (with chair) -Resist: standing workout with resistance band, mostly for arms, but other body parts get their share,   too -Stretching: cool-down To perform the exercises you will need a resistance band and a chair. If you’re already slim and slender and wish to make your physique look even more graceful, then this would probably be a good fitness regime to lengthen your muscles, make them leaner. As my body is still under construction (perpetually so alas), I feel like I would not benefit from this routine all that much. To be honest I considered some of the moves quite hard and Denise provided hardly any instruction on how to make them easier.  The DVD does not feature different difficulty levels or a modifier, even though it could definitely use one… I would venture to say that this training seems hardly suitable for beginners, therefore the title “Pilates For Every Body” appears rather misleading. I especially hated all the plank exercises, they were very rough on my wrists and made them hurt for several days afterwards. I mean the woman basically wants you to support the whole weight of your body on one hand, especially in the Pilates Twist section you are expected to execute all kinds of such advanced poses. The only part that I actually liked was the Integrated Workout with chair: it contained various exercises for legs inspired by ballerina routines; however I did not think it worth to purchase this video for just the one segment. As far as overall benefits go, even though during this workout you will train different parts of your body, the abs always remain engaged and do receive a lot of action. During the whole duration Denise talks a lot, which is not strictly necessary or helpful in getting on with your exercises. She’s usually very chatty and that’s ok with cardio or other dynamic workouts, but here this verbal extravaganza appears more annoying than motivating.  I perceived it as disruptive in achieving any level of serene concentration I would associate with Pilates. Also she moves from one routine to the next really fast, so it’s not easy to get the hang of it, especially if you are a beginner like myself. She starts the warm up with a facial expression that can only be described as manic (good sign I thought, the woman is certainly enthusiastic), but continues into the different sections kind of half-assing it, rushing through them and not giving enough instruction.  I was able to still do all the exercises, but most likely with very poor form. I did this DVD twice to give it a fair chance, but our ways will be parting simply because with so many other awesome workouts out there this one does not make the cut. It doesn’t even seem to me like it would be all that effective for weight loss purposes, always my number one goal. I actually genuinely like Denise and am a fan of many of her routines, but sadly this is not one of them! BUY ON AMAZON:
