I've got to say that I am extremely impressed with this video. I'm a guy and have been reluctant to workout to a tape, but decided to try this one based on reviews here and a desire to find a Pilates workout. I'm very glad I did because this is a great exercise routine.
The exercises concentrate on abdominal and lower back strength; your whole "pelvic girdle". It's an area that I have had a lot of problems with, even though I try to workout by walking, martial arts, and step aerobics.
The first 15 minutes of the tape is a warm-up that for me is a workout in itself. It concentrates on control of the abs and lengthening the spine, especially in the sacrum area. I have found after just a week that I am sitting, walking and standing taller and more erect, supporting my whole upper body correctly.
I can't stress enough how great that is. After trying to find that "one thing" that would help my lower back area from stiffness, I think this Method workout is key. I feel taller, already more flexible, and just stronger in the abs, hip, and lower back area.
Highly recommended for anyone wishing to correct their posture and build strength and flexibility in an area that is hard to workout any other way. Overall an "A"
