Stability Ball Workouts: The Secret to Great Abs!

Posted on 14 February 2013 by kira

The Stability ball is by far the BEST way to train your abdominals! Studies have proven that the stability ball activates more of the abdominal muscles, more effectively than any other exercise!

More Benefits from using the Ball:

  • Stabilizer muscles strengthened!
  • Traditional bodyweight or dumbbell exercises can be done!
  • Abdominals and Core work the entire time on the ball!

Do you have a Stability Ball (also known as the Swiss Ball, Fitness Ball, Exercise Ball, Resist-a-ball or Balance Ball), but have no idea what to do with it other than crunches and sitting? I have developed several workouts for the Stability Ball. Each one has various levels, so you can progress as you get stronger. With ball training, the abs are always working!

Pre-Mixed Workouts: Eliminate Boredom!

Posted on 14 February 2013 by kira

What is a Pre-Mix?

A pre-mix is a way of changing your workout variables using the same exercises. Your mind and your body both benefit from pre-mixes, here’s how:

1. Your body reacts to the pre-mix like a new workout!

2. Your mind gets new stimulation from the new routine!

3. Your mind-muscle connection gets stronger!

4. You work each muscle deeper and more intensely since you don’t have to learn new exercises.

You can also make your own pre-mixes by programming your DVD player!

This allows you to customize your workouts for your specific fitness goals, while breathing new life and excitement into some older DVD workouts that you may have abandoned.

All In One Workout DVDs are already formatted into chapters for this type of programming! Just follow the programming directions in your DVD player manual, and you’ll be on your way to customizing these DVDs even further!

DVD: Got Bands? Body Sculpt #1

Posted on 14 February 2013 by kira

A gym quality workout at home, without a collection of equipment! Bands are inexpensive and small, but can provide large improvements in strength, endurance and flexibility!

Bands integrate each muscle fiber in the extension and contraction phases of each movement. Appropriate for all fitness levels, they can be adjusted to achieve continuous workout progress. Bands travel well, so you never have to miss a workout!

In this program, Kira uses compound movements (squats, rows) along with traditional moves (leg lifts, shoulder presses) that actively engage the core muscles and abdominals. You get two in one: work the active muscle and the underlying core too!

Exercise combinations are designed to be time-efficient by working the core, abs, upper and lower body simultaneously. Kira’s simple reminders ensure you get the maximum from each exercise.

SIX WORKOUTS: ONE DVD
Workout 1: Total Body Tone
Workout 2: Arms & Abs
Workout 3: Legs & Shoulders
Workout 4: 10-Minute Combo 1
Workout 5: 10-Minute Combo 2 Workout 6: 10-Minute Combo 3

  • Programmable Chapters: Select multiple segments to program a custom workout
  • Pre-Mixed Workouts:, this DVD has pre-mixed (pre-programmed) workouts using combinations from the main full body workout
  • Kira Langolf is known for her all-inclusive program design and straightforward approach to instruction. She designs programs that people of all fitness levels can do and adjust as their ability advances.
  • Music is not added to this workout. Customer feedback told us that most music selections were either annoying after a few workouts or more distracting than motivating. We suggest that you put on music that you enjoy!

PLEASE NOTE: Resistance Bands with handles are recommended for this workout. Bands are not included with this DVD. We suggest SPRI XT Xertube Resistance Bands available from Amazon.com.
