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

Reformer pilates

Reformer pilates.
Glute and core stability strengthening bridge exercise.
.
Trying to remember to keep hips equalized, turn on and engage the core, glutes, hamstrings and lower ab muscles required for the movement and to come back down from the bridge with control and the discs of the spine moving smoothly and sequentially. The opposite arm to the supporting leg is pressing into the reformer as the heel presses into the bar.

Strong women have inner strength to face life's challenges as well as working towards core fitness body strength.

Facing life head on requires a clear mind and strong body to be working together to be able to focus and achieve your goals.

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. All the time keeping the hips stable, core engaged and spine in neutral-not flat to the reformer.
