Mother and daughter reformer Pilates

Mother and daughter reformer Pilates.
She's the one further away obvs
.
This exercise is for the lower abs, core, glutes and also arms. .
To raise the intensity of the exercise the legs can be scissored lower just as my daughter is doing.

Arm exercise with legs in tabletop.
.
Keep shoulders down
Keep ribs down.
Back in neutral.
Core engaged.
Legs in tabletop.
Arms strong and LATS engaged. 
This flat rectangular muscle of the back helps the arms rotate as well as move away from and toward the body.
It also is the muscle that can help tone that annoying fatty area that hangs over the bra sides. .

Wednesday Pilates

Wednesday Pilates.
.
Shoulder stand.
An exercise challenging the lower abs. 
Using the lower tummy muscles to get the rise up rather than just momentum.
.
When I post a video clip of an exercise I've done,  I notice how I could have done it a bit better. .
I had felt I was right up tall onto my shoulders with my body more perpendicular than it was. .
Once up in the air, this exercise can be continued with the legs then going further backwards, toes to the reformer over the head and then reversing back over again. .

Pilates reformer fitness Thursday

Pilates reformer fitness Thursday.
.
This particular exercise is so much harder than it looks.
.
It depends on a strong glute med, good turn out from the hip and core stability, .
I found it hard to do as I had a left hip resurface op a few years ago ( the same op as @andymurray has just had) and also tore the glute med subsequently.
.
So the mechanics of how my left hip works, together with the hip flexors and glutes are not as they were before. Also at the age of 64 the body is slightly more worn now! .
But with hard work its possible to aspire to be the best you can be.

Squats with weighted medicine ball.

My daughter's ball is twice as heavy as mine as she is twice as fit as me and also as I'm super cautious and mindful of my own weaknesses from lower back injuries and a hip resurface op a few years ago.
