VIDEO EXERCISES: BODY POWER

(6)

The Domyos Body Power enables you to tone-up all your muscles effectively. Deep strengthening of your abdominals, biceps, shoulders and thighs. Domyos offers you video exercises, produced and commentated in partnership with Domyos Club sports coaches, so that you can get the best use out of this tool. Discover the Domyos video exercises for a good work-out with your Body Power.

 

An effective work-out session should last a total of between 30 and 45 minutes, depending on your level. The main aim of these exercises is to increase your muscular endurance. Work on them in blocks, enabling you to alternate the muscles used.

 

Safety tips:

Keep your back straight during the exercises. Do this by focusing on a specific point that enables you to keep your vertebrae well aligned. In addition, slow down your return movements to avoid treating your joints roughly, and keep your abs/core toned continuously.
