Description

Variable intensity interval training (VIIT) uses a variety of exercises requiring different degrees of effort in order to maximize your fitness results and time efficiency while keeping the risk of injury low. There are many different levels of reformer VIIT that gradually increase in challenge for endurance, coordination, motor control, and strength.

In this online Pilates workshop, Elizabeth Larkam alternates medium and high intensity jumping sequences with rejuvenating trunk control exercises during each interval. The jumping sequences focus on elastic recoil to develop kinetic storage capacity of the fascial system. Because elastic recoil plays a major role in walking, running, and jumping, these movement sequences will put a spring in your step and connect your resilient torso with the power of your lower body.

Watch Elizabeth first demonstrate and teach each exercise individually, then observe how they are put together in a full 40-minute reformer class that you can follow along to in your own studio. Experience a variety of jumping sequences in supine, side-lying, and quadruped interspersed with active recovery exercises focused on articulation of the foot, ankle, spine, hips, and shoulders.
