The new rotation is just based on Cathe Friedrich's beginner's rotation, but since I don't have all the dvd's she uses I have modified it. The DVD that came with my personal step (Pink for Breast cancer research.) is a little different than the Basic Step DVD. It has 3 workouts but not the Body Fusion sculpting or the Total Body Sculpting. I have many other workout tapes that cover similar aspects so I'm substituting those. Please visit her website for the Official beginner's Rotation. Also, I'm not doing upper body because of the neck injury. And for the same reason I am adding more stretching. I'm also giving myself some walking to get back outside as well. Btw, you could sub any lower body toning/strength workout for the Legs tape which is a tad esoteric and dated but its what I've got.
Week 1, 2, 3
Monday: Basic Step, Esquire Dynamite Legs, Stretch Max 1
Wednesday: Basic Step, Stretch Max 2
Thursday: Kathy Smith Cardio Timesaver (both 20 minute sections plus cool down.)
Friday: Basic Step, Abs of Steel, Stretch Max 3,
Saturday: 2 mile walk. Yoga (upper/lower body work)
My body Fusion workout has both upper/lower body strength/toning work it so I won't be having that be separate later in the week.
Week 4, 5, 6
Monday: Body Fusion Stretch Max 2
Tuesday: Abs of Steel, 3 mile walk (Either outside or Leslie Sansone)
Wednesday: Body Fusion Stretch Max 2
Friday: 3 mile walk. Stretch Max 1
Saturday: Firm Cardio resistance band DVD. It came with the band.
I'm not planning any further than that. If I can get it in the morning that is best but if it must be after work so be it.
:) Happy slimming!
