Pilates Leg Series: Weekend Workout! 3-11-17

Welcome to Weekend Workout!, a 20-30 minute Pilates and yoga inspired workout. This week, we’re focusing on the Pilates leg series, but we have some other Pilates leg exercises as well.

This Wednesday, I will cover one leg circles. Circumduction, a controlled circular movement of a limb from its joint, is the best way to trim your thighs. So, for those looking for trimmer thighs, I have leg circles especially for you.

For those wanting to work the outer parts of the legs, or “saddle bags,” the side-lying series will be important for you.  Please note that there is no real way to target an area to lose fat. These exercises are to help you build strength in weak areas and to firm and tone your legs in general.

If you want weekly customized Pilates and yoga sessions tailored to your goals and abilities (with a written workout and personal video) and email contact to ensure I am meeting your needs and you are achieving your goals, please fill out the Medical History and Waiver, and I will contact you. With online training, we can both work when we are at our best, without the hassle of finding a time to meet that works for us both.

Are there any particular exercises you’re wanting me to incorporate or any areas you want to work? Simply comment below.
