This one is a great low back stretch. With two red springs and the strap on my thigh, it really helped to traction my pelvis away from my rib cage. It gave me a wonderful stretch without compressing my opposite side. Head, neck shoulder organization is paramount. You can get a little extra work by adding hip abduction. #progressivepilates #athleticpilates #pilates #palmsprings #strength #pilatespalmsprings #palmspringspilates #macgyverpilates #pilatesmacgyver

💡Muitas pessoas dizem ou pensam que só farão alongamentos durante a aula, mas os homens em geral que adoram fazer exercícios de força vão ter uma grata surpresa. Tem alongamento? Tem sim. Mas o repertório do Pilates tem uma infinidade de exercícios de força, principalmente utilizando os músculos mais profundos do abdômen , os famosos transversos abdominais e também trabalhos de fortalecimento de membros superiores e inferiores. #pilates #pilatesmaraponga #pilatesacademia #pilatesavançado #pilatesreformer #pilateslovers #pilatesformen #pilatesforça #pilatescompleto ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ . . .⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #Repost @seanbergarapilates with @get_repost ・・・ CHALLENGE YOUR CORE TODAY! Today, I worked on coordination while focusing on breath. Preventing inhalation in the core is an excellent challenge during exercise. The sniff breath, when executed properly, allows for inhalation in the rib cage as opposed to the core. Not only does this provide support to the head, neck and shoulders, it also provides support to the low back and hips. When I inhale with the sniff breath, I feel my core muscles stabilize my back as my naval travels upward. Next time you do elephant or long stretch series, see if you can prevent inhalation in the core and feel inhalation in the rib cage. I always tell my students breath is a tool not a rule. I performed this exercise on one red spring. • • #MacGyverPilates #PilatesMacGyver #pilatespalmsprings #stretch #pilates #palmsprings #mendopilates #pilatesmen #fitness #ProgressivePilates #AthleticPilates #MethodPilates
