JessicaSmithTV: Feel Good Fusion

Feel Good Fusion is one of Jessica Smith’s sneaky workouts. It seemed like it would be easy, but as the workout progressed, I found myself working harder than I thought I was! But it’s still not a difficult or advanced workout. It does feel good. You are working your muscles, and you feel it, but there is no burn out, no real cardio but I did break a sweat. Overall, I loved it. The thing I liked least about it was at the end, there is a lot of balance work and my balance sucks. But otherwise, I loved it. Jessica says to think of this workout as “movement therapy”–not a workout to push yourself. She would also like you to do the workout barefoot. I did not do it barefoot. I have bad feet so I need my shoes. Peanut is definitely feeling good during this workout–sleeping and stretching. She even gets thought bubbles!

Feel Good Fusion is 33 minutes; 2:45 minute warm up and 4:30 minute stretch. I’m really not sure exactly how long the warm up is, but IMHO, about 2:45 minutes into the workout is when Jessica starts working you a bit harder.

  1. Wide plie pulse squats
  2. Pivot to the side so you are now pulsing in a lunge; stop pulsing (but remain in lunge), take a deep breath and raise arms overhead and exhale, lowering hand to side and hinging torso forward
  3. Repeat #1
  4. Repeat #2 on other side of body
  5. Narrow squat pulse facing to the side; do one wide traveling plie squat so you are now doing narrow squat pulses facing the other side; changes to singles: one narrow squat + one wide plie squat + one narrow squat to other side; add opening and closing arms as you squat
  6. Alternating hamstring curls but aim heel toward opposite glute when curling; add swinging arms side to side
  7. Stand with legs together and do one narrow squat then lift one leg out to side, alternate legs w/ a narrow squat between each side leg lift; add sweeping arms to opposite side that leg is lifting
  8. Narrow squat + tap one leg behind you, alternate legs with a narrow squat between each toe tap; tap changes to leg lift; add arms lifting overhead when leg lifts
  9. Step tap side to side while sweeping arms side to side
  10. Lateral skaters while reaching one arm in front of you
  11. Stand with all your weight on one leg and tap other leg behind you then out to the side while alternating pushing arms forward and back; becomes a balance move–same leg movement but no tapping
