Re: [day 24 / day 25] kick up with head on the wall

Dear Erica, Thank you very much for your question and for your lovely words! Thank you also for sending the links to the videos, that helps me to understand what the problem is.

Re: Structure for 7 weeks beginner, medium and advanced

Hello, In general I would say listen to your body. Rest days are tricky because it really depends on the person. Some people have done one day training and one day off with this course. Others did 4-5 days a week and then two or one rest day. I personally like to train two days, then rest for one, t...

Re: Episode4

Hello Veena,

Please try one more time.

I have changed the maximum upload size to 1MB.

The other option is to send a link to an uploaded youtube video that you can mark as unlisted so that only people who have the link can see it.

Thank you for your patience.

It is useful to work on mobility and upper body strength, very important in fact. But nothing...
