Bodywedge: Bottom LineTerri Herbert
Categories: Total Body Workouts
I have all four BodyWedge DVDs. They are produced by Greg Twombly, so the set, music and production quality area all fine. Not outstanding, but acceptable.
Each DVD starts out with a 10 minute instructional segment led by BW inventor, Rich Decker. He explains the 21 BW exercises, while a woman named Ann demonstrates. I hope she is is wife because he was touching her a lot to show the area being worked. He gives form pointers and modifications for the exercises.
Bottom Line is approximately 30 minutes long. It is a real mixed bag. Some of the exercises are super-tough (incline leg outs, decline crunches), some very easy (most of the leg work) and a few I felt would be bad for my knees so I skipped them (plie squat with heel lift, lunge/knee ups, standing on the BW side leg lifts). It does have my favorite ab exercise - oblique crunches. For some strange reason, I am not great at regular crunches, but can do side crunches without difficulty.
I donít see myself doing this workout again. But I got some good ideas for ways to use the BW in many other videos. The BodyWedge looks like it will be vey versatile and useful.
She is very cute. She needed to add some more form pointers.
