Pilates workout: Legs
Pascale Falempin and I, we continue to show you our special Pilates workout. Today we are focusing on the legs. Strong legs’ muscles support our joints and help to coordinate our movements. Strong muscles mean beautiful legs!
Don’t forget to do our warm up first. It will help you to prepare your body for the workout.
Step one leg back into a lunge, pulse for three counts and drive the knee back up. Inhale down as you pulse, exhale up. Repeat 10 times each leg. Next time add 2 more until you reach 20.
- Side lunges
Extend one leg out to the side, keep the spine long and the shoulders away from the ears. Drive the knee up to return to starting position. Inhale as you lunge, exhale to lift the knee up. Repeat 10 times each leg. Next time add 2 more until you reach 20.
