WHAT IT IS
This 10-minute Pilates ab workout is a great introduction to core workouts using a resistance band. The resistance band allows for greater resistance throughout the entire range of motion of each move. These Pilates-inspired moves engage all of the abdominal muscles and help you lengthen and tone your entire body.
Chris will give you the Pilates basics along with proper positioning to help you get maximum benefits from this workout. You will learn how to engage the transverse abdominis, the low ab muscle that wraps around your body like a belt and is the key to flatter abs.
This Pilates ab workout uses moves with and without a resistance band, such as bicycles, seated twists, and full-body roll-ups. These precise, controlled Pilates moves engage all of your ab muscles, including your obliques to create a lean, defined waistline. The minutes will fly by while you feel the burn and sculpt stronger, leaner abs. All you need is 10 minutes to perform this effective, engaging Pilates-inspired core workout. This beginner Pilates ab workout also has plenty of modifications so everyone can be successful.
Pilates helps you create flat abs, a strong back, and improve core strength. Not only is Pilates a great routine to complement your existing cardio workouts, but it’s an effective workout to do on its own to build core strength and lengthen the muscles. Pilates will also help you improve your back strength which is all part of the core body and helps prevent injury from everyday movement.
Pilates is all about controlled movements to effectively engage your total core, and this 10-minute Pilates ab workout works the abs like none other. Build stronger abdominals with the assistance of a resistance band in this 10-minute Pilates ab workout.
