This Pilates workout is designed to make you pull all your Pilates knowledge together and achieve great results in the next 20 minutes. Last week we focused on engaging the core and working our legs in a more traditional manner. You probably remember Side Kicks, Bicycle and Leg Circles.
This week we are taking our Pilates program to the next level by going vertical. In most Pilates sessions you will spend the majority of your time in a horizontal position because it is the best way to establish proper alignment and learn to control your body. However, we work horizontally to be able to take our knowledge of the body to the vertical position.
Today we will take classical Pilates exercises (Footwork, Single Leg Circles, Side Kicks, Hot Potato etc.) to a standing position. This workout will challenge your balance, will make you engage your deep core muscles and, of course, will work your legs like nothing else.
