This thread is designed for personal use, as well as use by others. My goal is to achieve ever increasing athletic fitness as well as ever improving flexibility, mobility, and control. Routines are intended to average out around two hours, give or take half an hour. Videos are chosen to be easy to do at home.
Video routines should hopefully be somewhere between an hour and a half to two hours or barely over, and you are more than welcome to put together enough videos to post your own. If you do that, pay attention to labeling the first post as the start of the routine and the last as the end of it, and approximate the duration of the entire sequence. it is easy to edit mpa posts as there isn't a time limit upon it. Two lines of personal feedback under each video is also nice.
I'm currently working on exercising through all the videos I've chosen, and writing personal feedbacks upon each. I am also starting to try and organize their sequences into daily workout routines. So give me a bit of time (several weeks at least) to organize their order while moving in and out and reordering videos.
Flexibility Option: After exercising through every video and every routine, I have come to the conclusion that I really need to work upon and increase my flexibility. I enjoy the videos as they are, and how every routine I've set up is structured and ordered, and how kickboxing is placed at the end. But I personally need to be able to do high leg lifts, high kicks, and eventually the splits, all of which aught to be achievable through a lot of stretching, correct posture, and the correct hip tilt.
The following is what I've come up with for the Flexibility/Mobility Routine Option:
1. Each routine equals one day of video workout;
2. Flexibility/Mobility Routines number 31, 32, and 33 should be conducted twice over, in a row during the course of six days, before starting upon Routine number 1;
3. There are 30 routines, excluding routine numbers 31, 32, and 33. Follow each in order, and after every three, repeat routine numbers 31, 32, and 33 in order;
4. In all, this would mean six initial days of stretching out, 30 days of flexibility/mobility routines, and 30 days of doing routine numbers 31, 32, and 33, so 66 days;
5. Whenever finished, repeat, but without doubling the flexibility/mobility starting workout, so that each time through will be 60 days.
Extending out muscles, flexibility, and mobility (the ability to control flexible muscles) takes time, and should be practiced over time.
Flexibility/Mobility Routine Option: Start off by doing Routines 31, 32, and 33 each twice over, then start with Workout Routine #1.
Splits Training and Exercise Ball Option: Alternate the above turns for 31, 32, and 33 with Routine 34 and Exercise Ball Routines 1 and 2.
Before Routine 1 / After 15 --- Mid-Interval Splits Training and Exercise Ball Option: Do Routines 31 to 34, and Exercise Ball Routines 1 and 2 before continuing.
Additional Notes: Starting on Page 8, after the Exercise Ball Routines, are videos that can be done to access flexibility and motion problems.
After those videos, is a section I'm currently tossing together to highlight the videos that I view as being most beneficial from all routines.
Good way to start a short intervals beginners routine... Workout Routine #1 - Start
Personal feedback: simple easy to do exercises in 30 second intervals, good for stretching, enjoyable.
Would do this one again, and might be a nice part of a daily routine. Hits a lot of different locations.
Personal feedback: one minute long intervals are a bit less fun than the 30 second intervals of the previous video.
This video was okay, but unlike the one before it I wouldn't want to do it every day. I'm not really into lying down exercises.
I am 5'11" and typically have under 10 lbs. of fat on me, so off of the feet exercises can be a bit painful bones upon skin wise.
