Kimberly, if you are talking about the floor move for our derriere and thighs ??? That is still to this day, my fav callanetic move!!!

It has to be the most difficult and contorted for our natural way of moving, but it is amazing for what it does. Thighs and hamstrings, become sculpted and you will love the look! I couldn't sit for a few days without grimacing because I overdo this one. My age is shining throuh. LOL!

Speaking of the "nailed to the floor exercise", what do you guys hold onto for this? I use my sofa or coffee table, and lately have taken to sort of hanging from a buffet (sideboard) but I never feel like my shoulders are relaxed (it's more of a frequently tense, clinging sensation) and Callan does say that's the most important part of the exercise. What do you guys do?

I'm holding onto the edge of a bed while pulling off the bedspread. No melting wax with this method. My dog Rosie, who naps on this bed, does not like being pulled toward a little cliff edge, either.

Okay, I use my office desk because it has a ledge that comes out at exactly the right height. I remember back in the 80s, using a dining room table ledge for many of these exercises. I think you need to find the right height, so that it doesn't hurt your shoulder or cause any stress. It is mostly for balance anyway.

So you think that the nailed to the floor one can be done standing? Just till he muscle gets stronger.. and then go back and do it on the floor?

This is how they do the bent/straight leg moves in Evolution (and Callan suggested it herself in Secrets of Callanetics as a modification for the original series):




This 'spiral' position is another modification suggested for both bent and straight leg moves. I use this one all the time:

Standing is considered an advanced move. In Super C you do the floor set then do a kneeling set then end with the standing set. If you have any kind of knee issues I wouldn't move to the standing set until you've mastered the floor version so that your still leg thigh/behind will be stronger and taking more of your weight than your knees.

Both pics are from Sandra Hanna's Facebook page Callanetics With Sandra Hanna | Facebook She posts the link in the Callan monthly thread here in the Exercise section of LCF.

Thanks for all the replies, and Jennifer, thank you so much!! Those pics really help. I've actually been doing the first pose but felt like I was "cheating" because I was leaning on my arm

You're welcome.

I hope no one feels like I keep jumping in acting like an expert or anything. There's just not a lot of info 'out there' about Callanetics and I want y'all to know there are Callan suggested modifications for all of the moves. The original book along with the Beginning Callanetics and Secrets of Callanetics DVD's are all great resources. Plus the old really long Callan threads here from '08/'09. It truly is all about the form and the pulsing. Props and positional aids aren't cheating they're just tools to get you in the best place for your body to work form/pulsing.

Jennifer,
Those pictures were very helpful, thank you!

Did my first hour today of 10 in 10...hoping to stick with it this time. Stomach exercises are the hardest. My fav are the hip exercises because that is my trouble area and I would contort myself in about any which way to see results.

The most I've ever done was a week straight, even then I saw great results, a very very flat stomach (for still being overweight) but it wasn't enough time to see results in the hip area.

Glad it's "in" again, I would love the support

Keep on pulsing

I did 10/10 last night and was much happier using the modifications - thanks sooo much.

I also love how I'm easily motivated to spend 45 minutes doing 10/10 - because I'm seeing results so quickly, it doesn't seem such a chore. Besides, it's also kinda relaxing, especially the leg stretches near the end. LOVE those.

Jennifer, thanks for the photos. Just did hour #4 using them. Wonderful.

There are definite changes happening.

My gait is altered a bit.
I feel less force moving through my hip joints and low back afterward, as though my spine is floating above my pelvis. This is good.
I have a functional leg length deficiency that goes along with some pelvic asymmetry, and am crossing my fingers (and peachy cheeks), hoping that this shifts that a bit. If I end up being able to run trails again you'll see me weeping with gratitude somewhere in the woods in Northern Ontario.
Thanks very much to all of you for your enthusiasm. It makes this experiment a lot of fun.

Kimberly, it's been a long, long time since I last looked at my peach. I'll bet it's got pits, stretch marks, and a whole parade of other crazies going on. I'm hoping to lift the whole thing a little closer to the sky by doing this.
Isn't this fun?

Pitted peach! Yes, yes, that is so true!!!

My fav thing to do while at the office or when I am waiting is the "arm moves" and the "waist whittler". It helps me bring stress out of my shoulders and I actually get energized by doing these when I need a lift!

WOAH, Callanetics? I used to do a callanetics program back in 1986 when I was 13.5 years old. Is the newer stuff based on the program from the 80's?

Yes. It's a lot of the same basic moves with updated positioning. For example they still have all the leg/hip/thigh work but none of the moves are done with a bar.

I'm still here...right now because of time management (grad school, work full-time, etc.) I'm doing one of my 20 minute Quick Callanetics every night, so I'm only really doing 2.5 hours a week. Not sure I like it this way but at least it's something!

As for 'hanging on', I'm still struggling with the segment in Hips & Behind where you raise your leg up and down while on your knees. Thank you for the photos because they have given me a great alternative!

Its been almost 30 days for me and I've become callanetics addict! I'm doing the 10/10 and evolution. on a daily basis, alternating the workouts. I do prefer the 10/10, not just because it shorter but I feel I get a better stretch. I'm seeing very positive changes in my body and my skin is becoming baby soft, at the age of 55 Has anyone done the super callanectics?
