“If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.” — Joseph Pilates (founder of the Pilates movement concept).
Have you been following our Pandemic Pilates sessions this week? Pilates is the perfect lockdown movement recipe when you’re stuck at home, walking into the unknown, with little equipment and no instructor.
Supporting you to stay at home, and stay active in your comfy lounge room, is our goal. We have purposely only given you three exercises each day—it’s achievable, maintainable, time-efficient and realistic.
Are you new to the Pilates concept? Pilates is a wonderful form of movement training, providing a combination of strength, stability, alignment, awareness, breathwork and mobility.
Each day throughout lockdown, we have 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 (tick!)
Tuesday: Hip stability and mobility (tick!)
Wednesday: Upper Limb Strength (tick!)
Thursday: Postural core (today!)
Friday: Lumbar strength
Here’s today’s postural core workout.
Pandemic Pilates: Thursday
1) Resisted bird dog (use a can of food in the cupboard if you don’t have a dumbbell or resistance strap)
2) Side plank
3) Bicycle supine
