I keep looking at this workout, hoping that Darebee will dust it off and produce a companion video. The sequence is hard to follow without watching someone do the movements and following along.

I know. It's very difficult to interpret the movements from the pictures. Seeing a Darebee video of it would be nice.

Re: Tai Chi in workouts.
The sequence is hard to follow
Just follow the lines, they show the movement direction.

Learn step by step, don't try to memorize the whole sequence in one go. From figure 1 the arms raise above the head, the arms move to the right and as you do you step to the left and both arms and stance are like figure 4. Keep practicing this till you have it down pat.

Moving on, the right arm sweeps back, hand is in a chop position. as you sweep the right arm forward you step with the right foot. Not seen is the left hand which comes to the waist palm down, the right hand will first sweep palm up then turn palm out, as you step back with the right, left hand sweeps back and comes forward as a chop and right hand sweeps back and palm turns up.

Figure 8 step forward and sweep right hand back and over for a block. 9 both hands at the hips palms up, step forward and thrust. Both arms circle back and the weight shifts back, right foot joins left. Step to the right (feet as shown), arms circle and as the hands come to a close shift the foot back and your in starting position.

This is my interpretation.

I'm a visual learner so, for me, seeing the movements in real time is important.
