Some Moves for Tighter Assets

This is a Body Sculpting pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 5542)

Thanks to Tami Lee for these moves which I have tested myself and my students:

Combo lunge: step platform in front (can also do without), bar for stability in left hand: lunge forward with right leg return to start position with knee lifted (abs tight) and then lunge back same leg - repeat for 3 sets of 8 or until fatigued, can vary count at the end to 3 pulses front, change to 3 pulses back than change lead.

Band work: Band around ankles, standing on top of step, again using body bar for stability, bend left knee, foot flexed and do hip extensions pressing foot towards to the back of the room. Great glute work. 3 sets of 8 with pulsing at the end or until fatigued.

Abductor work: Bands at ankle, knee soft, side lift, (I usually do these with a straight leg and feel like the soft knee makes me work more of the outer thigh which I want with less help from my calves).

Can use the body bar for support again with this exercise.

Step platform: stand on top of step, side squat to the right (3 sets of 8) then do alternate lunges to the back of the step (3 sets of 8) small squats on top of step, change to left lead - modify reps/sets to level of students involved.

On floor: Plie squat regular, hold low and do pelvic tilts (Tammy calls this "the nasty"???)

Hope these are somewhat new and inspirational to someone out there.

Aloha, Petrina
