I often get asked what my favorite Pilates moves are. That is not a very difficult question, because I loooove the Pilates Series of 5! This series will strengthen your entire core; say bye bye to lower back pains, and hellooooo to rock hard abs! I’m gonna show you these tummy toning moves step by step so you can practice them by yourself. Have fun!
Lie on your back on your mat. Lengthen and release your neck, bend your knees and place your feet hip-with apart on the mat. Activate your core by contracting your pelvic core muscles, lifting your belly button in and up. Keep your core muscles activated during these exercises!
Important note: if you feel pain in your neck while you do these moves, try pulling up your shoulders a bit more so you can really use those core muscles. If it doesn’t feel right, gently place your hands behind your head and just use your legs until your core gets strong enough.
