Exercise of the month

Pilates Side Leg Series Part 2

The 2nd exercise in my favorite Pilates series. More in the series to follow in the upcoming months



  • Strengthens outer thighs and gluts
  • 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)

  1. 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 abs.Lengthen your spine and keep good posture.Use top hand for support on the floor.

  2. Lift top leg to hip height.

  3. Inhale and bring the top leg back about 1-2 feet.

  4. Exhale and lift the leg only as high as you can with complete stability in the rest of your body. Do not let your spine, pelvis or shoulders move. Keep your zip.

  5. 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. This exercise is meant to be done after part one of the series. Part 3 comes next.
    Check back for it.
