Increasing Core Stability: Part Three

by pilates32 on September 28, 2011

For the third and final part in this videoblog series, I have chosen a short excerpt from our medium level series, an exercise I feel completes the trio of core stability focused moves. This exercise strengthens the muscles of both the anterior and posterior chain; that is both the front and the back in simple terms. Strengthening the abdominals, lower back, gluteals as well as providing some upper body focus, this exercise allows strength whilst maintaining balance and stability of the spine and the pelvis.

When performing this exercise, ensure you maintain neutral spine and hold your core stable at 30% engagement (as demonstrated in our warm up example). That is; contraction of the pelvic floor muscles as well as pulling your navel to your spine to hold the core stable.

If you enjoy our videoblogs and would like to add more to your Pilates workouts, be sure to download our full video series on our download page; we guarantee you will feel the difference immediately.

I hope you enjoy!

All the best
Ian
