Thank you again!

My first delve into one of your whole body workouts at intermediate level and I really enjoyed it. I love the basic classes that I've been doing but I felt that it was time to push a little harder and give myself a bit more of a challenge. I love the flow of this class which I feel really comfortable with and that you push a little harder to increase the stretches - I love stretching! Thank you so much Amit - you are a great teacher :-) xcx

Amit - yoopod .

Thank you for your lovely comments Catherine! :) I am very happy to hear you enjoyed the challenge in this class and felt comfortable with it! This shows you have done the prep work well and are ready to progress :) Amazing!! xAmit

I am so pleased to have just done my first intermediate class and although I can’t always move at the same pace I did manage to do everything thanks to Amits excellent instruction. When doing roll-ups should I be squeezing my inner thighs together and does it make any difference if the toes are pointed up or out?

Amit - yoopod .

Well done Jo!! I have no doubt that if you'll repeat this same class a few more times you'll get on top of the pace as well!! :)
Roll Ups- yes, please keep the legs together- focus on feeling the heels and backs on inner thighs squeezing together in particular if you can. Please keep the feet pointed the whole time at first and when you feel that you have "mastered" the exercise start flexing the toes up when you roll up and point the toes away when you roll down.
Hope this helps
BW, Amit

Will do, thank you.

Good class!

Hi Amit,

Can you tell me please what is the biggest difference when doing lift abdominal exercises with wide elbow or with narrow elbow ? Thank you!!!

Amit - yoopod .

Hi Marija
Did you mean the Chest Lift exercise?
Amit

Marija V

Hi Amit, Yes Chest Lift.

Amit - yoopod .

Hi Marija
In principle there isn't much difference between wide and narrow elbows... it should not really affect the movement or change how it works on the trunk muscles. Saying that, my experience is that with narrow elbows people might tend to "pull on their necks" more and shrug the shoulders up and so I would favor the wider elbow position. (accompanied by clear instructions/cues to avoid the above...). I think about it as "elbows at the edge of your peripheral vision".
Hope this helps

Hi Amit,
I just wonder, the last exercise (cat stretch with straight legs) is similar as plank but with round back. Can you explain me why back need to be round? Thanks

Amit - yoopod .

Hi Marija
Thanks for your question. The back does not "have" to be round... but I find that this version of the plank is very effective as it helps people "feel" or "understand" better how to hold the weight of the body up-lifted. I find that when the back is straight people tend to sink more between the shoulder blades and/or at the lower back.
I hope this helps
Amit

Marija V

Thanks Amit, and yes you are right with the fact that 'people tend to sink more' with the straight back.
Great exercise!
