Abs and core challenger

Challenging abs and core Pilates workout in standing and on the mat

In this class:

  • Standing clam
  • Side plie
  • Heel raises
  • Cat stretch
  • Lift into pike
  • Lower into cobra
  • Oblique lift
  • Leg lift
  • Criss cross
  • Leg extension in abdo prep position
  • Double leg stretch
  • Spine twist
  • Y stretch

In this class we work a number of areas centred around our core and abs. We begin in standing opening our arms before a series of exercises including the standing clam and side plie before rolling down onto the mat and into 4 point kneeling.

In 4 point kneeling we run through a short series joining together the cat stretch, pike and cobra movements before rolling onto our sides to work through a sequence of oblique lifts and leg lifts.

We then roll onto our back for some challenging core and ab exercises including criss cross and double leg stretch.

Finally we warm down in sitting with some gentle spine twists and Y stretches
