Suggested Obsidian Slide Board DVD Rotation

A Leisurely Slide Board Workout

We have often been asked by our customers what the suggested rotation was for our workout DVD’s.  We asked Lacey (one of the trainers in the videos)  what a good rotation for the DVD’s would be and she said:

“My opinion is to start with;

  •  Beginner
  • Then intermediate
  • Followed by advanced 

At that point you should be ready to mix and match the others. When we begin a challenge, we always follow that pattern, which is why we created the beg, int, and advanced. Next we will do pure cardio and abs (great combo), pure cardio and upper body (also a great combo), power and balance covers every muscle group so it can be coupled with anything. Circuit is a great workout that our clients love to pepper into the mix. 

We suggest doing the same workout all week (I know it sounds mundane, but the client really improves with each class and feels really strong by the end of the week). Recovery could be done once a week or any time the customer wants some lengthening/corrective exercise. It is critical to understand and learn the fundamental Obsidian exercises. This sequence will help facilitate great form and execution.

Week 1: Beginner 
Week 2: Intermediate
Week 3: Advanced
Week 4: Pure Cardio alternating with Abs or combine the two
Week 5: Power and Balance alternating with Lower Body or couple the two
Week 6: Circuit

Recovery once a week or any time the customer feels the need for additional lengthening.

A reminder to track nutrition and hit their weekly calorie target (can use Livestrong or Fitness Pal) will greatly enhance their results. Falling short of their calorie target will hinder their ability to build lean tissue and increase endurance. Let me know if you have additional questions.
