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.

Pilates Reformer

Pilates Reformer. .
As with all my Instagram posts I hope to demonstrate that no-one including myself is perfect in real life.
.
But we can all do our best, work towards being our best versions of ourselves ( without edits or Instagram filters), whatever age, bodyshape or size we are.

Another Pilates reformer exercise for glute and core strengthening and balance and stability on the supporting leg

Another Pilates reformer exercise for glute and core strengthening and balance and stability on the supporting leg .

This video clip was filmed after an tough hour group class and the glutes were certainly feeling the workout! . 
Quite wobbly this time as my muscles were tired and should have had the hanging leg straight but corrected it before the end of the video clip

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
