Resurrected rotation: Laura P. Firm Thigh blaster rotation

Posted by Laura P.

This is designed to be an intense rotation that focuses on the lower body. There's a lot of repetition in it--Vols 1 and 2 come up a lot because I consider them to have the best floor toning sections for legs. SL comes up twice a week, generally paired with a less-intense cardio tape like FB or TCM. There's also at least one floor toning tape a week--either SBHT or LBS, and there's plenty of cardio. Because it's so intense and there's so much repetition, I designed it to be a four-week rotation only, for fairly advanced exercisers who still have some stubborn lower body fat that simply will not go away (i.e., me).
Your comments are welcome! And if anyone wants to join me in my suffering, cool!
