This 15-minute Pilates Mat Workout filmed by Studio Classique offers several modifications to a classical Pilates mat workout to address specific issues of male athletes. While Pilates is generally viewed as a more feminine workout (check out the Pilates myths!) it was designed by a man and was intended to be performed by men and women alike. This video shows simple modifications to help men feel more comfortable while going through the workout.
The focus of this Pilates workout is on increasing range of motion and flexibility as well as building core strength. This workout was specifically designed for male athletes who are tight in their hamstrings and hip flexors. The modifications used in this video will also be helpful to the instructors working with male clients.
