Certified instructor description:
A huge variety of exercises focused on "core strength and core stability plus simple feel-good movements" (i.e. lots of relaxing stretches). The roller is used in nearly every possible position: lying on it lengthwise, lying on it sideways, standing on it, balancing on it, rolling on the floor, rolling against a wall, etc. Each segment focuses on one specific technique. The two exercisers show modifications and options while carefully cuing the precise form ("it's really important to place the roller..."). The exercises range from classics like planks and ab crunches to "butterfly legs" and "deck squat roll-ups." The DVD is designed for both instructors and home exercisers. Requires a foam roller and 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2011.
