P.sweat: What to Expect From the Workouts
Today we launch p.sweat—our four-part series of faster-paced workouts—on our streaming workout platform. The workouts won’t only promise you a good sweat and a quicker pace, but each movement will also safely and effectively raise your heart rate while still keeping you in control.
Each p.sweat workout is the opportunity for a new challenge to conquer. The series will be a way to shake things up in your routine and regularly add variety to your weekly schedule, all while keeping the same focus on form as you’re used to.
We already shared the nitty gritty details of what the workouts will be like—the basic format, the structure and more explanation on the additional repetitions. Now, we want to offer a few of the moves you can expect to do in the workouts so you’ll have a taste of exactly what it will be like.

Pull feet apart a few inches, then squeeze in back together. Repeat 10 times. Next, bring knees toward chest using the lower core before squeezing back out to starting position. Repeat 10 times.
