Workout of the Week
Pilates Strength

Instructions
Find a space that is clear in front, behind, and to each side of you to avoid injury. Perform a warm-up that consists of an activity that gradually increases your heart rate and moves your joints through a moderate to large range of motion such as the one below. Perform each exercise in the warm-up for 45 seconds.

It is encouraged that you modify each exercise to a version that is best for you.

Workout
While this workout will be using interval training, Pilates is not about speed. As you perform these exercises be mindful of your strong core. Pilates as a practice uses slow, lengthening movements to focus on postural alignment, overall strength, and balance. Perform each exercise for about 30 seconds before moving onto the next exercise, taking small rests in between as needed. Complete each set 2 to 3 times total.
