Keeping up with my Beginner's Callanetics. I'm going to try using the principles of Beginner's with the PM workout tonight.

I hope its ok if I jump in here. I have been practicing Callanetics since 89, off and on. Since I have been permanently disabled I have found that Callanetics is the only workout I can do routinely and not cause more pain to my already painful back. I generally do the 1 hour routine and then add the back support workout from the Complete Callanetics book. Some weeks I go with the 15 minute maintenance. This week has been a bit rough with the cold front moving in and snow storms, so far one workout today, regular 10 in 10 and back support, feeling good!

Absolutely!

I have to get that book one day. I'm a die hard 10/10/Super kind of gal.

Glad to have you here!

Sorry for the late response. The last couple of weeks have been a huge blur.

Some of you might recall, my hip/tailbone became dislocated again last January. Well, in the past couple weeks, I've felt something shift, something that will help e return to the level of pulsing I was doing before that point.

I plan for an hour in the morning, I'll let you know how it goes. Yay!

SOooo? Does anyone have any goals for the month of February?

I have one session in, and am thinking three per week should do it. I am feeling the need for a little more than maintenance, plus with my hip back in, I seem to have more energy to burn.

Let get pulsing everyone!!!

I'm trying to get started! I have been busy and can't seem to make time for a session. I dislike rushing my Callanetics time. I'm hoping to hit it tomorrow.

Hi, y'all,
My goals for Callanetics is Level II from the book Callanetics Countdown M-F all this month. Started the middle of last month, and folks at work as asking me how much weight I have lost. I have lost some, but not as much as they are thinking!

I've been quietly pulsing away. Going to try for 3 sessions a week again in February.

Good stuff everyone!

Slendercate, I'm wondering what level II consists of. Is that similar to the 10/10 configuration?

Ouida, you know what it's like. Once you get in that one or two sessions, you will make the space in your life to get in that 45 minutes - hour of Callanetics, because it make such a big different to how you experience your life. You can do it!

Hello friends I'm very interested in this thread and was wondering if you could help me.

I'm 5ft 7 and 131 pounds, my measurements are 34-26-37 with approx. 21% bodyfat.

As you can see I'm not overweight or over-fat, however I'm pear-shaped and have a bit of an issue with fat distribution. My top half is very slim and toned (my stomach and back especially), however my bottom half is a totally different story My legs and bum are like jelly. My behind is a REAL problem area for me, it's sadly looking very saggy with little to no perkiness or firmness at all. Basically my top half is great but my bottom half suffers from the dreaded "skinny fat" syndrome. In clothes I look fine, but with clothes off it's a nightmare. I am active in that I do lots of walking and have an active job, however it's not done much for me in adding any muscle tone to my lower half.

I don't have access to a gym to lift weights (or squat or deadlift etc) but recently found Callanetics and see it's had GLOWING reviews and some very interesting transformation stories. It seems very lower body oriented which is exactly what I need. I have plenty of time on my hands just now, so how many times per week would you recommend for maximum results? 5x? Or is that too much? Obviously I don't want to exhaust my body but I would love to see results as fast as possible.

How much of a transformation can I realistically expect to see with no weight loss (as I don't fancy getting any smaller, just tighter and more LIFTED)? At first I thought weight-loss was the key and that losing weight would reduce the "jelly" on my legs and butt but unfortunately it has made me smaller but not firmed me any. I don't want to lose any more fat as I already look slim (especially on my top half) because of my height, but don't want to push it and begin looking frail.

Has anyone else had a similar "skinny-fat" issue and Callanetics has helped them tackle it?

I'm also hoping this doesn't cause any knee issues, as I am slightly knock-kneed and am conscious of taking care of them so I don't create any unnecessary issues later on in life.

HOWEVER I'm not here just to ask questions, I'm going to try to use this to keep myself accountable and track my progress and any results that I see with it. Wish me luck and good luck to you all on your own exercise and body ventures! I've already taken some "before" pictures and am hoping that in a little while I will really see some changes

I think I've answered my own question about how many times per week to do it... I did it the night before and am still feeling stiff and sore muscles! I may try again tonight or tomorrow depending on how my muscles feel.

The only thing worrying me is that my lower back was ESPECIALLY painful yesterday (to the point where I had to take painkillers and lay down to relieve it) and still a little today. I'm not sure if it is a muscle soreness or if I have strained it somehow. I think I may have done something to it while attempting the lower back stretch OR when curving up while doing the leg exercises. I'm hoping it's just muscle soreness and will go away soon, though.

Welcome cowshedder!

Yes, your body will tell you how often to do the exercises. From your last post there, though, it sounds as though you're needing to learn to listen more to your body during the exercises.

Remember, you are just beginning. Anyone, even those who are fit in other exercise forms or sports will still need time to adjust to how Callanetics works their body. Too, if you are doing 10/10, this is considered an intermediate level. This means, when beginning, chances are high you will need to do less at first. As soon as you feel any form of strain, burning or tension, stop; you'll do more the next time. This is a no pain, lots of gain form if exercise, which people tend to underestimate. Treat both Callanetics and your body with respect and you'll go far.

So, every movement needs to be paid attention to, so you know which muscles you are working - it's easy to work the wrong ones at first. Even stretching needs to be done in a way where you're breathing into it, rather than forced. Your body will do what you're wanting it to do, eventually, you just need to point the way.

I hope your back was something that will heal quickly!

Thank you Jigglebuster, muchly appreciated.

I will try and pay extra attention next time I try the exercises It's looking like it will be tomorrow though as my muscles are still needing some rest.

It's very strange trying to relax and exercise at the same time. But I really enjoyed it and found I had a great sleep that night. I just need to pay close attention to my positioning and watch what I'm doing with my back and knees.

It was a huge learning curve for me to learn to relax the other body parts, and so worth it.

How have you been doing? Have you started to notice anything you didn't that first time around?

I've been doing Callanetics on and off for the past 5 years and I'd love to have other people to talk to. I did my first callanetics evolution yesterday and I was a bit confused by the workouts.

@cowshedder,

I have the same body type. A few years back, I was mostly doing Super Callanetics and Lotte Berk workouts. I lost 2 cm off my waist, 5 off my butt and 4 off my hips in less than 10 sessions. It's definitely possible to make your body more proportionate with Callanetics.

Yes! Please join us!!!

What are you confused about? Position? Count? Let us know and one of us should be able to help. I haven't done Evo for a while now, butI'm sure I can coerce my brain to remember.

How's everyone doing?

Sometimes I think that initial warm-up exercise on 10/10 is a godsend. It's like it releases all the tension. Hooo!

Hi Jiggle So good to see you!
I had my baby in December.
I am going to do 10/10 for March. I had a c-section (my first) and then a second emergency surgery when I ripped through and bowels were coming through incision.
I am SO OUT OF WHACK. Everything pops and aches on me.

I am not really 'cleared' for exercise until 6 months postpartum, but I want to do *something*
You think I should skip the ab work? Help guide me, please.

Just found this community through another one when I was trying to find out more about Callanetics. Saw this thread and I'm very excited. This sounds like something that will really help make a difference. And even more excited to see so many active and doing it on here. Just got my 10 in 10 and plan on doing my first workout tonight.

Tet! Thanks for bringing your positive energy here!

Partyof8, honestly, I'd be ultra gentle. Try getting into each position (stretching too far can be just as hard as contracting too hard), and see where you feel any pull and stop, then back up by about an inch, and mark that as your limit. So don't stretch up too high on the warm up, underarm exercise, pelvic rotations. On your hip and behind, get into position and feel what is comfortable without the twist of your waist pulling. And with the stomach exercises, I would elevate your entire back to a 45˚ angle and focus on the points you're working on, just to get some work, but not too much. For the leg up ones, simply pulse at a slight angle to each side, in the angled position, for now.

Thanks for the welcome, Jigglebuster.

I just did my first hour last night. Not sure what I thought of it, but I slept well last night. Haven't stretched like that in ages. Most of the videos I've used recently do not do a proper stretch before getting right in, but more importantly, neglect a very good stretch on the cool down.

Felt a pull in my abdomen last night, but not in a bad way. Overall, I felt pretty good.

The only real problem I had was that I wasn't able to do the one thigh stretch because I cannot sit on my feet. I'll have to play around to figure out how to modify it so I can get some benefit from that exercise.

And as I progress, I'll probably try to get a portable barre, but for now, I just used my bed for the leg exercises that required it (I couldn't get my leg up that high if I wanted to, anyway...lol).

Looking forward to going through this with everyone here.
