LBD WORKOUT PREP

Prepping for the LITTLE BLACK DRESS Workout Challenge::

To test, I did all the exercises (50-60 reps) at the GYM with basic equipment and then I did the same workout using only TYE4® at home.

RESULTS::
The gym workout was good, sweaty and challenging. Knees were a bit cranky from some jumping and my back felt tight and knotted at the end [you know what I mean? Felt like I needed a massage]

 

The TYE4 session made me SORE, got my heart rate up higher but I had no joint pain and had a fast recovery period. Also, my back felt good and strong – almost like I’d come from a massage!!

Further evidence of the value of the Tye4!

My online coaching group is starting this 30 day workout challenge soon and they will receive daily videos showing how to apply the TYE4 to each exercise to make it more effective!

TYE4® 2016

2016 is going to be an exciting year for TYE4@ wearable resistance system… New classes are popping up all over the world in a variety of locations – from YMCA facilities to elite Dance and Pilates studios to Crossfit gyms. The New York City Ballet trains in TYE4 and this past season, we had a few of the Washington Wizard NBA basketball players using TYE4 to assist with physical therapy and to keep themselves stretched and warm on the sidelines during games. This is so exciting and there is much more to come! Many more instructors are working towards their TYE4 certifications and many people will see life changing benefits from using TYE4!  Interested in becoming a TYE4 coach or instructor, visit TheMethod Pilates.com for more info.

It’s so fun to see how diverse this training system is.  More people are using TYE4 at home to help them loose weight, build strength, gain flexibility, improve posture, develop better balance & coordination and also rehab their body (specifically ankles, knees and shoulders). It can be worn while doing your regular workout or put it on and clean your house!!  Seriously, this is happening!!!  Busy moms are now wearing TYE4 while they clean and cook… and they are seeing results!!!  When you have it on, the muscles that line and support your spine are engaged, along with your abdominals!!!!  It also activates the stabilizer muscles around your ankles, knees, and hips so they are support and strengthened.  It’s easy and it’s smart!

Look for the NEW Bone Up™ TYE4 classes coming to the Nashville area in 2016!

Bone Up is a safe and beneficial class designed specifically to those individuals with Osteoporosis, Osteopina, or any condition which limits spinal flexion in exercise.

This class focuses on improving balance, building bone mass, and increasing overall strength, flexibility and endurance with an emphasis on body alignment to ensure safety, regardless of your ability level. read more… Riverbrook Regional YMCA

NIKE FREE SHOES: REVIEW WITH TYE4®

As you know, I’m kinda obsessed with the NEW TYE4® wearable system from TheMethod Pilates.  It is amazing for spine, hip & shoulder mobility, strengthening stabilizers, improving balance & coordination, and building overall strength and tone.  It can be used while doing lots and lots of different types of exercise.  

 

Today I’m talking about TYE4 and FEET!
SOCKS and SHOES
 

SOCK FEET… While practicing Pilates, for example, you will want to kick off your shoes. Choose a non-slip sock like ToeSox or something similar.  Tye4 should NOT be done barefooted for a few reasons.  During certain movements, the foot strap will slip and distract from the movement.  It can also irritate the foot, so find a cute pair of sock and wear them proud!

NYC THEMETHOD PILATES TRAINING RECAP – JUNE 2014

I just completed the PhysicalMind Institute 2 day E401 Standing Pilates Workshop held at the Chelsea Studios in New York, NY taught by Yuu Fujita, Institute Lead Teacher.  Traditionally, Pilates is practiced on large equipment like the Reformer and Cadillac and is not always accessible to everyone.  Mat Pilates is less expensive, does not require a lot of space, and can be followed by video or live streaming.  Often Mat Pilates classes will involve small equipment like a ring, bands or balls.  Still,  performing Pilates exercise standing has been challenging to master.  
For this training, we used the NEW Tye4® wearable resistance system from TheMethod Pilates.  It’s a harness that fits over the shoulder and connects higher on the chest, or lower depending on comfort.  It’s easy to put on and can be adjusted quickly.  It has loops that connect to each foot anchoring the single leg bungee and hand loops that anchor the single arm bungee.  While standing, the bungees function like a “bar” and gives support to movement that require balance.  Because it’s not as stable as an actual bar, it requires the body to work harder to balance.  This type of work is great for developing strong stabilizer muscles and a strong core.  The bungees can also be used to assist in movement and of course we used them to create resistance in the standing position – up to 40 lbs depending on how  the bungees are used!  We also worked through Pilates fundamentals and traditional exercises on the mat.  In this case, the Tye4 functions like a Reformer by providing assistance and resistance.  Mat Pilates is much more effective when using Tye4.  It can also be used on different Pilates apparatus – see here
