Back to pilates rehab exercises.

Strengthening the core, glutes and hamstrings.

With even the simplest exercise it's important for the body to be correctly aligned  for the exercise to be targeting the muscles properly.

Waking up the glutes

Waking up the glutes.

When in rehab after a knee ligaments injury and little or no exercise for weeks- it's best to get the basic core strength muscles activated before launching back into the same advanced levels of exercise as before.

Repetitions increase daily.

The instructions are in the video voice-over together with my actions. With thanks to Tessa @bh_beyondhealth

Physio exercise for rehab

Physio exercise for rehab.

When you have a knee injury, unable to exercise as usual, and you're  hyper-mobile, muscles quickly switch off especially the glute, core and hamstrings. 
It's starting over again with the most basic fitness exercises.

To kick start muscle memory and functionality, tie a stretchy band knotted at the ends over a door frame, and pull down.
Then weight transfer from leg to leg and lift knee. The action of pulling on the bands will help switch on and engage core and glutes.

Bring on Summer! Missing my training last Summer by the beach

Bring on Summer! 
Missing my training last Summer by the beach. Back to the exercise studio today for a barrecore class.  @misslucy_lou the bichonXwestie is missing the beach too.

I try to do some type of exercise and training at least 4 days a week together with a healthy eating regime. Pilates for core and glute  strength especially and overall body alignment. Boxing for HIIT. Barre class for core glutes and toning. Abd if no time for anything else a short brisk walk.

Back in the Pilates Reformer studio One leg in table top, the other doing straight leg raises to the highest point that stretches the ham strings too

Back in the Pilates Reformer studio

One leg in table top, the other doing straight leg raises to the highest point that stretches the ham strings too. All the time keeping the hips stable, core engaged and spine in neutral-not flat to the reformer.

Back in the pilates studio This exercise engages core, helps spinal mobility, hip flexors, balance, gluteals and flexibility

It is much harder than it looks as it also requires the reformer to be held out and stay in place and still whilst bending over and twisting
