The complete WEIGHT VARIED, WEIGHT CONTROLLED Piano workout with Cardio benefit (Video)

Here it is! The latest approach to building a full-bodied piano technique without taking Protein supplements, or gagging on raw eggs. You might even shed a few pounds if you’re committed to the regimen. But don’t run scared when you see me going into fast forward. That’s the AFTER, not the BEFORE.

I did my baby-step routines on the way, and you will, too, if you want to make progress.

Claudia, my 11-year old student, is on this program, and works out with me every week. Next lesson, I’ll provide a videotape minus the GRAVITRON. (though a few chin-ups at Bally’s can’t hurt)

I stay away from the hand weights, though, because they tax the precious shock-absorber wrists.

Note the indispensable role, and ROLL of the wrists in producing a fluid singing tone.

It’s all packed into the footage, and more, so give it a whirl and Enjoy the benefits of the REAL DEAL CARDIO!
