Side Leg Kick
The first exercise in my favorite Pilates series.
More in the series to follow in the upcoming months
- Strengthens outer thighs
- Improves Hip Stability
- Strengthens abs and back.
How to do this exercise:
(Always be sure to check with your Dr before performing this
or any other new exercise especially if you have heart problems,
high or low blood pressure, back or neck problems or are pregnant)
Lie on your side with legs straight and stacked on
each other.Bend your hips and bring your legs out 2
feet in front of you. Zip
your spine and keep good posture.Use top hand for support
on the floor.
top leg to hip height.
and bring your top heel forward 2x while keeping your
hips & shoulders still.
and bring the leg back as you point your toes. Think
of contracting your gluts to push the leg forward and
to pull the leg back. Again keep your hips and shoulders
still. The only things that move here are the ankle
and hip joints.
Repeat up to 16 times then switch sides. The most important
thing is to keep your body stable. Once you are stable
then you can increase your movement. Start out with
a small amount of movement in the leg in order to keep
stability in your body.
