Pilates Mat Exercises Side Leg Series
Pilates Mat Exercises Side Leg Series

I’ve got a fun side lying leg series for you today. I’m only demonstrating 3 reps per variation but in class I usually do anywhere from 6-12 depending on the movement component and the level of the class. I like this because it targets so many different aspects of the abductors based on the different angles. And of course it targets the side trunk. Enjoy!!

A fun spin on a barre leg/ butt series using the Pilates trapeze table and the roll down bar. Great for butt, legs, balance and core strength! For more fun choreography ideas and a million ideas for Pilates teachers and studio owners, follow us on Instagram @pilatesintructoracademy

Pilates Mat for Great Glutes
Pilates Mat for Great Glutes

Who doesn't want great glutes? This is a simple combo that you can teach in a class that your clients will love!! I'm only doing 3 reps of each movement but you should do 8-12. Tie a band in a bow tightly around thighs, just above the knee. Lie as shown with feet wider than hips and close to hips. Begin with neutral bridge 8-12 times all the way up and all the way down. Next stay up and abduct and adduct the thighs 8-12 times. Then keep knees wider than first bridge and move 1/2 way down and up 8-12 times. Next stay up and pulse out, then pulse up. The big finish is another set of full neutral bridges 8-12 times like we started. Tips: use glutes to lift not low back (don't arch to ceiling, just squeeze buns), weight slightly in heels, legs wider than hips.
