Review: Figure 30 Hips
Tracie Long, 2011
Tracie leads this 30 minute hip focused workout alone in a brick set & works out on a pedestal. I would call this an athletic ballet style workout- which is a super unique blend! The majority of the workout is done standing & concludes with a short floor section. You will need gliding discs (or alternative), ankle weights, and a dowel for this workout.
Lots of variety of exercises so you will never get bored with this routine. She really hits the hips and includes LOTS of great balance work and some exercises will get your heart rate up. She provides plenty of tempo changes to keep your body & balance guessing.
Exercises include: balance toe point & knee raise, side leg raise, balance lunges, cross back-hurdle over- plyo lunge combo, side squat -balance kick, low runners lunge, side kicks w/ the dowel, a fun & effective routine using the gliding discs, ankle weights, & dowel, squats & weighted side leg raises, weighted toe points, and concludes with pretzel & a stretch.
I rate this a beginner/ intermediate workout that is really appropriate for all fitness levels. Very unique and a great way to get more variety in your workout routine. As always, Tracie is a fantastic lead, great demeanor and form pointers. Love the unique exercises, the focus on the hips, the balance work, and the variety of exercises she includes in 30 minutes.
