Abs and glutes muscle control-t

Abdominal and glute muscle control Pilates workout

Great Abs and glutes Pilates class

This class is a great workout for your deep abdominal core muscles and glute muscles challenging both the strength and control.

The class begins by warming up in standing with some upper body stretches and some leg and balance control exercises.

Mobilising our spines with some roll down movements before coming down onto the mat and on our backs. On our backs we challenge our pelvic floor and deep abdominal core muscles with scissors and one leg stretch movements. We also practice our bridging exercise.

We then move into sitting to challenge our abdominal muscles further with some roll downs before moving around onto our sides to work on our glute muscle strength with a clam and leg lift movements.

The class then finishes with some nice gentle stretches.

    Thank you Vicky for this class. I enjoyed exercising this morning. I think your classes are excellent. Although I am familiar with Pilates movements, you have introduced some new ones which I find quite refreshing. I have followed your classes for several weeks now. and find them both challenging and rewarding.. I also appreciate that you state the time taken for each class and which particular parts of the body that you are concentrating on. I often combine several in one session depending on the length, and try to do so at least twice a week often more.

    I do however have one problem. I have a moderate hearing loss and wear two hearing aids. The reception here is not good and I often struggle to hear what you are saying even at full volume. I move my lap top around so it is as close as possible but this is still a problem. I would appreciate it if you could speak a bit louder. if possible.

    Thank you once again. I look forward to continuing with your classes

    With very best wishes from

    Hi Vicky,

    Thank you so much for putting these Pilates classes online; they cover all levels, so suit me perfectly. I really appreciate the words of encouragement throughout, as they help to keep me focused. I’ve enjoyed every session so far & look forward to trying all the others.

    This is my favourite class so far, as it contains some exercises specifically for the abs (I think it’s the only Moderate class to do so?). I know I really need to strengthen my abs, because in exercises such as the lying hip twist, and roll down/up, that are supposed to work my stomach muscles, I can feel my back muscles substituting instead.

    I agree with the other lady about volume; no hearing issues here but I do need my laptop turned up to max! Also agree about the encouraging words, which I find really helpful; likewise the reminders to breathe!

    Thanks Vicky for these classes. They’re helping me stay flexible in lockdown 🙂

      Thanks Mel. I am aware the sound in this isn’t as good as it could be. I am hoping to improve some of my equipment for the classes starting in 2021 which, technology willing, will make things more consistent.
