Over the Canberra lockdown, we have adhered to over five weeks of Workplace Workouts together. Supporting you to stay at home, and stay active in your comfy lounge room, is our goal, and ‘Pandemic Pilates’ will be the focus this week.
Pilates is a wonderful form of movement training, providing a combination of strength, stability, alignment, awareness, breathwork and mobility—the perfect movement recipe when you’re stuck at home with little equipment, and no instructor.
Each day throughout lockdown, we’ve been encouraging you to get up and move, and do the Workplace Workout (WPW) routine.
If you’ve just started joining us on the WPW journey, I’d recommend trying the earlier workouts from 2-3 weeks ago which are available here.
We have a simple structure for this week’s Pandemic Pilates Workplace Workout:
Monday: Thoracic and Posture
Tuesday: Hip stability and mobility
Wednesday: Upper Limb Strength
Thursday: Postural core
Friday: Lumbar strength
Here’s today’s workout.
Pandemic Pilates: Monday
1) Pilates arm opening
2) Pilates swimming level 2
3) Trunk Stabilisers on Foam Roller with Shoulder Flexion
