Client doing a Side Bend on the Ladder Barrel

Lou’s Moves – March 2015

I’m known to obsess over things, my Pilates workouts are no exception. Each month I pick a few moves to really focus on. Here’s my March list:

  1. Sidebends on the Ladder Barrel – because you’ve never really found your obliques until you’ve tried this with arms overhead!
  2. Footwork on the Reformer – this month I’m taking a tip from my Total Barre course and going with the pulses, ‘down an inch, up an inch… love that burn!’
  3. Diamond Press – the ultimate anti-computer posture exercise which I love to hate when my back’s stiff but it’s just plain good for me.
  4. Standing Side Kick – since I just did the Total Barre course it’s featuring heavily in my workouts at the moment. ¬†Working my butt off (literally!) with this standing version of the Pilates classic. Don’t forget the pulses!
  5. The Hundred – I’ve rediscovered my love for the quintessential Pilates ab exercise. Doing it everywhere I can – mat, reformer, ball, even the foam roller!
