You may or may not have heard of the famous PiYo training. Simply put, it's a high-energy, continuous routine that combines Pilates and yoga to burn calories and strengthen muscles.
Many workouts in today's fitness world combine different modalities of a workout to maximize time and achieve a training goal. A well-rounded program with various types of cardio, strength and flexibility training is the key element to achieving results.
PiYo is a dynamic, fluid sequence of exercises that burns calories while strengthening and toning muscles and increasing flexibility. PiYo was developed by Chalene Johnson, the founder of the Turbo Kick system, and is a beachbody program. It's designed for people who want the mental and physical benefits of a yoga or Pilates workout in a high-energy, faster style.

A typical PiYo training involves a mix of five topics: heat build-up, lower body, full body fusion, core of strength, and more stretch and strength.
Music is also an important motivator for the training. The selected tracks have a different training emphasis (the topics above) that applies to the entire song. So remember, if you rebuild PiYo yourself.
The following is a breakdown of what a & # 39; live & # 39; PiYo class (in a live environment) includes, including the warm-up and five themes:
A dynamic set of movements that warms up the body and prepares the muscles for work.
Examples: Side flexions, reverse lunges, squats with large arm movements
This section aims to warm the most important muscles of the extremities and spine with sun salutations.
Examples: boards, pushups, warrior poses, sickle lunges, child pose, cobra
Focus on strengthening and tightening the lower extremities
Examples: ] Squats and lunge Variations, including Lateral Lunge, Bowler / Curtesy, Combination with Lateral Side Lunge, etc.
FULL BODY FUSION
This section combines upper and lower body movements
Examples: Plank Variations; Combinations of walking and rolling, squats and lunges
POWER FLOW CORE
In this segment, the intensity is increased by adding power, also known as plyometrics, along with the strength exercises. Examples: plyometrics; Squats or Lungees, Bowler (Knicks), Lateral Leaping
MORE STRENGTH AND RANGE
– These exercises strengthen and at the same time create muscle length with the resistance of your own body.
Examples: Slower pushups, plank variations, lunges / squats, and subsequent stretching
PiYo home training is slightly different due to the ability to choose a particular program. The workouts are aimed at the lower body, some even exclusively at the core and so on. The beauty of this workout is that the different segments allow you to tune the workout to a specific length and to your training goals.
OTHERS [FUSION] METHODS
Many fitness years ago, I created a very similar program called "Plyo Pilates ™". It's a dynamic practice flow that combines Pilates Barre and modern dance, yoga flow, martial arts and athletic power. I've developed the Plyo Pilates ™ method based on the many skills I've learned as a kid, which I value as an adult, and based on what skills are lacking in typical workouts to function at an optimal level. I think it is important to be able to move gracefully at any age and skill and to be able to correct imbalances where the body needs strength.
Plyo Pilates ™ is a very special, unique and unique training experience for me. I also teach classes, workshops and certifications to share my method as well 🙂 I've also produced old school DVDs and up-to-date downloadable videos for every location and at any time … my videos would be a great workout addition to your total gym routine. (For more information, please contact me!)
I also wanted to release my program because it is different and yet resembles a PiYo training. Maybe you have exercises that you also include in your training! Creative minds think and move with their soul!
If you know the value of fusion-based workouts, you can immerse yourself in a PiYo routine that you can do in your Total Gym!
PiYo [Total Gym] TRAINING
I've created a "mini" PiYo-style workout that includes your Total Gym. The training consists of 5 exercise combinations that are tailored to each PiYo theme.

– If time permits, repeat a third set for 6 reps, 30 seconds. Plank Hold …
– Then continue with the next exercise and complete it in the same mansion until completion.
