Hey Lauren! As I said yesterday, I am a HUGE fan of Higher Power!! I'm very excited about the new classes and switching the routine up. Keep up the good work! I definitely felt it in my back this morning--shoulder blade area and downwards. And then this morning in class my abs were dying-I wasn't expecting that---I guess I figured since I was new to using the band system, I was really more concerned with the bands not slipping out of my hands! I didn't think I was really focusing on my form and what I was doing--I didn't think that I was getting much out of it. I can't wait for the next class!
Great, I'm so happy that you're enjoying it and FEELING it! HIGHER POWER is a total body cardiovascular workout that emphasizes the upper body, specifically the triceps, the back and the abs. What most people don't realize is just how AB intensive this class is. You really should feel it in your abs the next day (especially if you're working correctly!).
Olivia, your form is perfect, so you will get a lot out of our classes. Most people (and many beginners) will just power through with their arms and grip the band so darn hard that they can't focus on form and doing it correctly. Good job!
