Remember when? If you have been in on the obSESSION with us since the beginning, “Move of The Moment” might sound a little familiar to you.
Well, we’re bringing it back baby! 🙌🏼
It’s no secret. We love any chance to deepen our Pilates practice and share it with everyone willing to listen 😜. Coming up, we’ll be spending a little time every month highlighting some tried and true exercises that you’ll typically see during class, breaking down the standard exercise and the most common modifications. Whether you’re new to the SESSION fam or have 500+ sessions under your belt . . . practice makes perfect!
You know what they say the beauty of Pilates is:
The more you practice, the harder it gets.😅🙃
So without further ado, let’s dive right into the first Move of The Moment:
👉 Primary Muscle • Upper Abs & Lats
👉 Standard Set Up • 1 Red+1 Yellow. Short straps. (The lighter the spring load the more abdominal focus. The heavier the spring load the more upper body.)
👉 Body Position • Lay flat on your back, head on your head rest, short handles in hands, hands straight up to the sky, fingertips in line with shoulders. Legs are in a strong table top.
👉 Movement • Press your hands down by your hips and resist back up even with your shoulders. Add your abdominal crunch, scooping up to pull your chest toward the ceiling and resist back down. Add the legs, lengthening out to a 45-degree angle. Resist back down, bringing the legs back to table top.
👉 Modifications • Long loops &/or no scoop of the head, neck, shoulders.
👉 Pregnant • Add the wedge (21-40 wks). No scoop of head, neck, shoulders.
