They suggest using a wall but what they use on the DVD are the risers used on a club step and she has about 8 of them stacked up. You could very easily use a chair, the wall or even a workout bench if you have one.

HTH!

I have done the Barre3 bridge work with the chair and you are right -- it does the job well.

I pre-ordered from Mary, too, and have been trying to be sooooo patient for these. It's not working -- especially after reading the reviews here. I want these yesterday! Since I'm doing a FT25 rotation right now, I guess I can be patient a bit longer . . . .

Last night I did the second workout-- inTENse.

There are six 10 minute sections: cardio, arms, abs, cardio , arms, abs/stretching.

This was another fast moving, don't waste a second Dream Body workout. As with MILF, many of the cardio moves are plyo or plank moves. But these inTENse moves are not the same exact moves as in MILF. You are almost always multi-tasking. For example , doing an arm series while you are in a squat against the wall, or doing standing oblique work while punching with small dumbbells. I especially liked doing triceps presses using a band while in down dog position.

It helps to watch the workout before doing it because besides being fast moving there are some moves which were new to me and it is good to know which piece of equipment is needed next (one or two pound dumbbells, playground ball, band, gliders).

I don't know about you but the arm section with the squats while squeezing the ball was tough!! My poor arms are still sore and I've got DOMS from being in the squat and squeezing the ball...lol.

I wish they were not so expensive!!!
I love the first series and this one seems very interesting also.
I wish the price would go down a bit...
