Lift Higher

Tracie Long
Year Released: 2010

Categories: Lower Body Strength

This workout focuses on lower body (glutes and legs). On the main menu, you can choose from 3 10-minute segments, each one works the lower body in a different style, or you can choose the full workout with all 3 segments. I found it hard to figure out what I was clicking on the menu, because as you scroll down the menu, the font changes from white to "less white" so I ended up selecting the wrong thing the first time I did the workout. They could have made the menu highlighting a little more obvious, IMO.

The workout itself is really good. The moves were varied and interesting. I'd label it intermediate. The first segment is weighted squats and lunges, with negatives and pulses. The second is standing unweighted, such as sliding with one foot on a rag or sliding disc. The third segment is floor work, like donkey kicks and leg lifts, with optional ankle weights.

The music is the right bpm for the workout, but it sounds kind of ominous to me, like someone is about to be murdered or something! lol!

Instructor Comments:
This is my first Tracie Long workout. I didn't do any Firms at the time she was with the Firm. She is fantastic! Her cueing is Firm-like, but she wasn't StepFIRMish. She seems "down to business" but not cold.
