Fanny Lifter Question

I have the videos from the The Firm's first two Body Sculpting Systems and other "older" firm videos and dvds that use the fanny lifter. I was wondering, is it safe to do these videos 5-6 days a week? And is it safe to do fanny lifter workouts with regular step workouts?

    I would thik it is safe as long as you are not lifting too heavy of weights and working the same muscles 2 days in a row. As for using a regular step, It may be too long for a lot of the lateral moves done in the Fanny Lifter choreography. I have a Fanny Lifter and all the workouts that go with -for the most part- you can try it out with a regular step-you may just have to turn it vertically instead of horizontally like normal.

    Whenever you choose to workout IS the PERFECT time to workout! T.M.P.

    I have several steps including the FL and I turn mine verticle if I don't want to use the FL. You can even keep it horizontal and work of the right or left side only.

    I wouldn't use weights for the same muscle groups 2 days in a row. It's one thing to challenge the muscles on Day 1 and use 1-3 lbs on Day 2- for more of a cardio bonus, but not for challenging the muscles. They need time to repair. Strength/muscle is gained during rest, not working out.

    Working the same muscle group 'intensely' two days in a row is not recommended. The fanny lifter provides a way for you to lift your entire body weight with one leg, toning the lower body. This can be very intense if you are using the correct height of bench. I would suggest these types of workouts being done no more than 2-3 times per week. Also, there is not much variety in the moves being performed. I understand your 2nd question to be if you can do step aerobics in addition to the fanny lifter programs. Yes, the platform used during regular step workouts is not as high as when you're using the fanny lifter and the moves are not 'intended' for intense toning in the same way as with the fanny lifter. The height of the bench makes a huge difference as to which muscles are engaged while stepping up and down.

    Many of the Firms Crosstrainers use the Fanny Lifter every day.  I've done it and never had a problem, but I may have been misreading my knee pain.  Always thought it was due to lunges on floor, not FL.  I think its okay and you can bounce quarters off my glutes.

    So it's completely safe to do fanny lifter exercises one day, then step aerobics the next day, right?
