Reformer Pilates

For those who have only ever practised mat-based Pilates classes, I am going to regularly demo together with @lukemeessmann @absolutestudios how Reformer pilates exercises can be tailored to every ability- beginner or expert.
.
Today’s exercises in video clips 2 and 3 are the basic first and then the more advanced variation. . .

Back on the Pilates reformer

Back on the Pilates reformer.

Exercise for hip rotation, inner thigh muscles- the adductors, and hip control. Especially good for strengthening around the hip. 
I did this exercise as part of a series of 3 sets.  Toes turned out heels together, 
then toes turned in heels out 
and then straight. 
So using all three sets of surounding hip support muscles. .

Great for keeping the body mobile and for strong core and glutes. With core strength the back is supported and the knees will have less issues with tracking or injuries.

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.
