Power Walk Dance Fusion is part of AngieFitnessTV‘s 15 Minutes to Fit Series. Angie created this series to be used as finishers to other workouts. And she created them as true finishers. Each of these little workouts ends with a 2-3 minute stretch. During my rehab from shoulder surgery I have been doing a lot of Angie’s workouts and though I enjoy them all, my favorites so far have been her 15 Minutes to Fit series and her Fit Over 40 Series. They are workouts I will return to even when I am not rehabbing! Now that I have really been delving into her workouts I am discovering a lot of her more challenging workouts that I plan to try when my shoulder is healed. This morning I did a 30 minute upper body workout (a Kelly Coffey-Meyer premix) and finished it off with this workout. It was a fun little low impact cardio finisher.
Power Walk Dance Fusion is 22:10 minutes; no warm up, 3 minute cool down/stretch. Angie is holding 2 pound hand weights. Angie builds a dance walk combo that is repeated multiple times. It is made up of basic cardio walk moves that Angie adds a bit of spice to including a basic march, “jazzy knees,” side lunges, tap w/ a knee raise and heel digs. Nothing complicated but it is fun. I wore my 8 pound vest to increase intensity. I have been given permission by my ortho surgeon to start using resistance on my left side–under the discretion of my physical therapist. So this morning I held a one pound hand weight in my left hand and a 2 pounder in my right. It was exciting to be able to do something with that arm even if it is only very light weight! (I also used very light dumbbells on my left side during the upper body strength workout–again, exciting!) I am on my way back to normal. Hoping this is the last thing I have to rehab from! I am tired of all this rehabbing!
