Formula 57

This morning I tried Formula 57, a Physique 57 class created by one of my favorite Physique instructors, Chanelle.  Formula 57 is an uptempo remix of the classic Physique 57 ballet-meets-pilates class and the Mat 57 pilates class. 

The vocabulary of movements will feel familiar to Physique-goers, but there are a few twists.  For example, we were asked at several points to do one thing with one leg while moving the other leg in opposition, or to do a bicep exercise with the right arm while working the tricep of the left.  I'm not so much a rub my tummy and pat my head kind of a girl, so this was pretty tricky.  

Also, in the traditional Physique 57 classes, you tend to work one muscle group till it fatigues and then leave it alone.  In Formula 57, we were constantly switching around and repeating muscle groups.  I never knew what was coming next.

Formula 57 is super fun, but, like it's creator, it's no joke, so if you're new to Physique, you may want to hold off on it until you've got the techniques down.

    LOL! I don’t know anything about psychology, so I’m so sorry I don’t get your point much clearly by implementing this formula 57 in morning. But hopefully it will give you the desire result and you will be able to remove your anxiety for that time.
