Pilates exercise for core stability and switching off over-active hip flexors

Pilates exercise for core stability and switching off over-active hip flexors. .
I can do this anywhere as it simply needs a theraband and 2 slightly deflated balls-one for under my bottom and the other for between my calves. .

Good morning Friday!

It's important to always stretch before any exercise.
.
.
But check with your personal trainer that you're stretching correctly as this pose is slightly exaggerated for the purposes of this pic. The more you can bring your hip forward and align the knees the better the stretch.

This video clip was taken of me when the weather was hot and sunny not torrential rain like today which means riding today was cancelled

It's so special horseriding along a beach. It makes you feel happy, blessed and so grateful to be healthy and well and lucky to be able to do such a thing.

We all need some downtime to reboot each week

We all need some downtime to reboot each week.
This includes a weekly Pilates class for me. .
If we keep our bodies reasonably fit and eat healthily,  then when we are super busy we are still able to cope when life becomes stressful.
.
This is an exercise from my Wednesday physio reformer pilates class.
.
This Pilates exercise strengthens arms, helps the movement and flexibility of a tight upper back, works the tum, core and glute muscles, the inner thighs and needs balance to be able to stand, twist and bend over. .
It's more difficult than it looks, especially when it's done slowly with control, holding out the platform steadily before returning it back in.

It's such fun and a good cardio, core and glute workout. You need to use your core together with your glutes for balance, strength and to keep upright.
.
I do look quite serious but I'm properly concentrating on not only trying not to fall over myself but also on not knocking over any small children or even adults skating around holding onto their penguins for support.
.
Have a good Friday! What are you doing that's out of your comfort zone this weekend? .

Back to a barrecore class today

Back to a barrecore class today.
.
.
It's another birthday next week, (in my 60's) which reminds me that as we get older it's important to keep fit, healthy and mobile. For mind and body.
Even if the exercise is only a 20 minute brisk walk a day. Exercise should be a minimum of 3 times a week. .
.
.
I like to mix up my fitness classes each week.  Each style of class has a different purpose. 
So today is barrecore which has core and glute work,  plies and sqats,  together with ballet style barre exercises and light weights for arms.
I do Pilates once a week for core and glute strength and spinal mobility. 
30 min boxing and HIIT workout once a week for cardio and also to help weight maintenance or loss. 
Horse riding is my occasional special feel good treat especially when It's riding along the beach. 
And then there's the dog that needs a walk.... What's your weekly fitness or exercise regime? And what's your favourite class?
