I absolutely LOVE Ellen Barrett’s workouts. I never feel exhausted afterwards. Always rejuvenated. I feel like I have better posture and like I stand taller and more like a ballerina 🙂 Here is a free workout anyone can try. I really love it. The commercial breaks are a little weird but, eh, it’s Freeeeee!I like the full range of motion and extension with the weights like when you do a\the figure-8, and just how you are constantly moving your feet even when you’re focusing on your arms. The full squat circle you do with the weights is great for your core and your obliques. The directional double down is also great for the core. And then in the floor work is a good amount of stomach crunches without being too hard on the back. Usually I can’t do crunches at all because it’s ends up pinching my sciatic nerve but these are just fine. Boat pose is a fun alternative to a crunch I think it’s my favorite.
I’ve tried some other workouts for free on Netflix (which is where I learned about Ellen Barrett) and even though some of the moves may be the same I like her level of cheerfulness. How cute she is. She isn’t obnoxiously excited but is easy on the eyes and ears. Also her motions flow unlike the other videos I watched where they seemed to be jerky.
I should be getting her newest video Sleek Sculpt Express in the mail soon which will be followed by a full review….I love her! can you tell? More reviews of her exercise DVD’s are found under my Product I Recommend page.
