THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG
Question: Dear Gilad... My name is Mary Jane. I am a big fan of your workouts! You are a great instructor! I am 54 years old & in pretty good shape. I have been jogging several days a week (3-5 miles). I would like to start one of your workout programs, but can't decide which one to buy. Should I do the Quick Fit System, the Ultimate Body Sculpt Series or Lord of the Abs or combine them? I can't do the higher intensity workouts as well anymore, because of my knees. I want to continue with my jogging routine, but definitely need to do more stretching & core exercises! I would appreciate any suggestions as to what program from you would be the most beneficial & fun!
Answer: Hi Mary Jane, You sound like a perfect candidate for the 'Ultimate Body Sculpt' series of 3 DVDs. This series of workouts has exactly what you are asking for, core exercises and stretching. 'Core & More' will supply the core exercises while 'Power & Grace' will give you the creative stretching you are looking for. 'Cuts & Curves' sculpts the muscles that give your body it's shape through the use of functional moves.
Even though 'Ultimate Body Sculpt' has minimal high impact moves, always remember that you can turn any workout into a low-impact workout (to protect your knees) by stepping when Gilad is jumping. The 'Ultimate Body Sculpt' series was made for you and others like you.
