It’s never too late

.
To take up paddleboarding.
.
This was the first day after the whole of this Summer that we took out the paddle board.
.
Very wobbly in spite of core strengthening pilates classes twice a week throughout the Summer and a 121 boxing session each week.
.
Maybe it was the volume of food consumed over the last few weeks 
Or
@misslucy_lou pacing up and down the board. .

My old body feels and moves so much better when I do a minimum of 1 Pilates class a week

3 classes would be optimum but when both work and social life is busy, it's difficult to fit everything in and motivation to get up at 6am for a 7am class is less strong after a few consecutive nights out and just a glass or two of rose. ......
.
Reformer Pilates Scissors exercise using only one strap at a time for core stability, abs and hip flexors.
.
Making sure that the hips stay still, back stays in neutral and lower abs and glutes remain switched on. .

Testing core strength

Testing core strength.
Think it's part of Pilates "Teasers".
.
Trying to sit up as tall as possible whilst keeping the back as straight as possible too.
.
It's hard
