Perfectly Fit Buns

Claudia Schiffer (w/ Kathy Kaehler)

The video is filmed in the Caribbean as well as Europe. It's done in an MTV style similiar to Cindy Crawfords Next Challenge and with similiar music. It has a really relaxed feel to it.

The first part is a long warmup which includes squat variations etc. The workout consists of:

Squats/Lunges

Plie Squats

Mat Work (table work)

Pelvic Tilts

The workout flies by. I no longer do the squats,lunges or plie squats because I don't find them that effective for me. I just do the mat work and the pelvic tilts. Is the mat work/tablework that effective? I don't know but they do quite a few reps interspersed with pulsing. My favorite part is the pelvic tilts. The reps are done with ten interspersed with 10 pulsing and then we change leg and feet postions. I read another review that said there are a total of 180 reps but I haven't counted. I have only done this workout for about 2 weeks and thanks to the pelvic tilts my once 2 part backside is coming together as one. What I mean is the bottom half sags more than the top. Well now it's starting to take on a more rounded shape. Claudia also rests weights on the thighs but I have not tried this yet. I give this video an A because I'm seeing results and fast.

Instructor comments: Claudia is easygoing, relaxed and has reasonably good form. Kathy also demonstrates some of the exercises and offers form pointers.
