Core Strength

Exercises that Build Core Strength
Core strengthening exercises are most effective when the torso works as a solid unit and both front and back muscles contract at the same time, multi joint movements are performed and stabilization of the spine is monitored. Abdominal bracing is a basic technique used during core exercise training. To correctly brace, you should attempt to pull your navel back in toward your spine. This action primarily recruits transverse abdominus. You should be able to breathe evenly while bracing and not hold your breath.

10 Minute Daily Session

Many of you who attend Pilates with Theresa have asked for a 10 minute session that can be done between classes on a daily basis.  I would recommend the following to be done daily or at least 3 times per week. Please note that this recommendation is only for those clients who attend Pilates with Theresa and already know the basic safety measures required to carry out any form of exercise.
1.  Correct alignment
2.  The Roll Down
3.  The One Hundred
4.  Side Lying leg lengthen and lift (8 lifts with 8 pulses to finish)
