The exercises are demonstrated with a thorough video. There are menus where you can shoos everything from target muscle groups to level of difficulty. You can target the upper body, lower body or give one of their extra difficult exercises a shot. Some of the craziest fall under “playground” like “the Human Flag,” which is like a plank–but holding yourself parallel to the ground by your hands!!! Ok, I’m not there yet! But will keep you posted!
