Chair Pilates – class three

Chair-based Pilates class using hand weights to add variety and extra challenge

  • Difficulty: Easier
  • Length: 12 minutes

The class includes hand weights for some of the exercises in the class, but this is optional. I would recommend weights about 0.5-1kg in weight as a guide but please use whatever you feel comfortable with. If you do not have any weights, then just grab a tin, or jar out the cupboard that you can comfortably hold in your hand. If possible, use a chair without arms and try to avoid leaning back into the chair during the class if you are able. The class is suitable for most levels but as always work to a level that you feel safe and comfortable to do.

This class includes:

  • Toy soldier with option of hand weights
  • Combined arm lift and chest press with option of hand weights
  • Bicep curl and opposite leg stretch with option of hand weights
  • Abdominal curl with option of hand weights
  • Tricep curl with option of hand weights
  • Alternate arm fold and stretch with option of hand weights
  • Side plie side bend stretch
  • Shoulder rolls and neck stretch
  • Roll downs
