upper body shape up

I like the combination of yoga and pliates. Two things i have never tried but would like to. The added benefit of improved posture is a plus for me.

Frequency

Perform this workout twice a week, either by itself or as part of your regular routine. For a head-to-toe tone up, combine these fusion moves with the Core Shape-Up and the Lower Body Shape-Up. Also, which moves were you confused about?
