CLICK HERE to check out Steve Ilgs complete five-day strength-and-endurance routine.
THIS STRENGTH REGIMENdesigned by Los Angelesbased coach Steve Ilg, author of Total Body Transformation (Hyperion)was built to match the groove of the Zen room. » YOU CAN ACHIEVE what Ilg calls Wholistic Fitness with this routine, which utilizes yoga blocks to create strength, balance, endurance, and flexibility. » STRUCTURE RULES: Unless noted, do each exercise for one minute. Breathe via your nose and move through each superset without resting. Limit recovery time between supersets to one minute. And if you're going to complete the 19-minute workout more than once a week, skip a day between each session.
1. BENT-LEG TWIST CRUNCH Same as leg crunch in first superset, but twist left elbow toward right knee, alternating elbow and knee with each crunch. 2. EXTENDED-LEG TWIST CRUNCH Start in extended-leg-crunch position from first superset, but twist left elbow toward right knee, alternating elbow and knee each time.
