Back to pilates rehab exercises.

Strengthening the core, glutes and hamstrings.

With even the simplest exercise it's important for the body to be correctly aligned  for the exercise to be targeting the muscles properly.

Bring on Summer! Missing my training last Summer by the beach

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.

Studio reformer Pilates This seated “froggy plie” exercise is to help core stability, hip flexors, all leg muscles

Studio reformer Pilates 
This seated "froggy plie" exercise is to help core stability, hip flexors, all leg muscles. The important bit is is to try and keep the back straight, tummy muscles engaged and the plie movements as smooth as possible. Its more difficult than it looks.

It is much harder than it looks as it also requires the reformer to be held out and stay in place and still whilst bending over and twisting

Good Morning Monday #workout Reverse walking lunges whilst punching with weighted balls

Good Morning Monday 
Reverse walking lunges whilst punching with weighted balls. 
This is supposed to be a flowing sequence movement. But in my case doesn't seem to be! It's very hard to keep balanced.
I''m doing my best but as they say -could do better! 
The dog @misslucy_lou isn't feeling it either as you can hear from her tone of voice.
