Weekly Exercise Challenge: 10 Min Pilates

Just in case you are already having trouble sticking to those New Year’s Resolutions, here is an exercise challenge for the week.  I’ll do it to.  Can you find ten minutes a day to do Pilates?  Just pick your favorite exercises or put in one of our DVD’s and do it for a little while.  Coming to class counts of course, but not for me.  I have to do ten minutes outside of class. 
Here are some exercises I rarely skip when I’m doing a quick Pilates workout for myself:
1)      Should Bridge
2)      Spinal Rotation
3)      Hip Rolls
4)      Obliques
5)      Swan Dive
Otherwise I change it up.  And I must admit, I often skip the 100, mostly because, as you know, I’m not a good counter.  And even when I’m all alone working out by myself I can’t seem to count right.  Who is with me?

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.

    Core workout training, we not only want to incorporate the most effective abdominal exercises, but we also want to avoid exercises that could increase injury risk.
