I try to do them. I am tall with a long torso, so I don't think I am getting even one leg at 90*, it's probably more like 75-80*. I'm sure I look like a mess, but I'm doing the best I can.

Both workouts were challenging but I just went at my pace, and modified when I had to. Especially in Royale, I just did the original move as long as I could the maybe instead of a kick I would do a knee. I really felt great the whole day I did Royale. I had to cut Hamptons glow short by a few minutes but I have to say itís probably the most unique workout Iíve ever done. What a challenging way to work your core and upper body!

I just want to give a huge shout out to Ebianco for your Tour of Tonique thread because you make these workouts seem a lot more approachable!! Lots of love to you

Iíd love to hear more from the Tonique newbies! You can do it!

Jane, youíre so welcome and thank you!!!

Great job on tackling Royale, and I love Hamptons Glow!! Iím so glad you found them enjoyable!! I always feel wonderful, both accomplished and well worked out, when I do Tonique

I also modify the handstands more like Linda has demonstrated, her level 1 with the second key straight but lower than the first and level 2, with the second leg bent but higher, and only occasional full level 3 with both legs held high lol . My form definitely improves when Iím doing a focused Tonique rotation and Iím doing them all the time.
