Stability is extremely important when starting a workout!
It is the first stage that someone should go through to make sure that they have a good foundation before moving on to strength. The main focus of this form of training is to increase muscular endurance and stability while developing optimal coordination. This type of training concentrates on proper form as well. The science behind it is that stability training helps decrease the chance of injury. The goal is to increase the ability to stabilize the joints and maintain optimal posture.
When you are choosing weights to complete the resistance portion of this workout you should choose weights that are light. The main objective is not resistance training, that part comes later. Choose a weight that is comfortable and that you can complete the full exercise with. Feeling a little sore a day or two after is ok, but do not choose weights that may compromise your ability to perform the exercises with proper form.
