Grace Lazenby

iBallet 2 (46 minutes) ♥

Barre work (16:56)
▪ Spinal rolls in 2nd position / Plié
▪ Small plié feet parallel in relevé with ball between knees / press knees on the ball
▪ Quad stretch
▪ Plié 1st position in relevé
▪ Plié 2nd position / in relevé
▪ Sweeps (petit battement): front, side, back, side
▪ Lying on stomach, lift legs off the floor, then open and close the legs

Core work (12:30)
▪ Torso twists (sitting with arms extended to the side, turn side and pulse)
▪ Roll downs and roll up to a straight back
▪ Isolation lifts (2 min.)
▪ Ball lifts
▪ Criss cross (bicycle)
▪ Roll ups
▪ Saw
▪ Neck pull

Floor work (11:02)
▪ Lower abdominal lift on the wall (4½ min)
▪ Pelvic tucks with feel on wall and ball between knees / tempo and feet position variations

Stretch (6:06)
▪ Hamstring stretch
▪ Inner thigh stretch on the wall
▪ Resting pigeon on the wall
▪ Seated neck stretch

▪ Music is ok, kind of generic but good beat
▪ There is nothing wrong with this workout but it does not offer anything unique – every move in it is done better in some other iballet workout
▪ There is quite a bit of ab work (about 17 min) and little lower body floor work (only 6 min)
▪ I don’t enjoy the stretching done at the wall (moving close to the wall and away from it to get into position is annoying)
