Weekly Wednesday Workout: Pilates Shoulder Bridge

 

It’s time for your Weekly Wednesday Workout! Today we are focusing on the bum, the booty, the rear end, the junk in the trunk!

I kinda like this move! As soon as I did one I felt the muscle in my butt working!  I don’t do them as gracefully as this lady does them but I still did them! This is great for toning the rear end while working some muscles in the legs as well. I’m not sure how many reps I can do but I can certainly try for as many as possible!

Have you ever done a Pilates Shoulder Bridge or something similar?

That looks easier than I am sure it is! I probably could use some work in that area!

Scarlet watched over my shoulder and said, “Why didn’t they use the word ‘bum’ instead of ‘butt'”? Oh, Scarlet. As if she watches her mouth at all. At all! I love butt exercises. Yes Scarlet I said “butt.”

lol “butt” is a trigger word here too, I try to say tooshie but my husband thinks that isn’t manly enough. Bah.

I love bridges, this modification is interesting! I will give it a try, I’m having to choreograph a lot these days since my manager broke her foot and I’m filling in for her class.

Girl I know you are working overtime to fill those classes, but I know you are killing it!

I really like this move! It kicks my booty (pun intended!). Pilates usually doesn’t really give me enough “burn” but this move certainly does!

Reply
Nellie September 10, 2013 - 3:47 pm

haha at the pun. Pilates is a bit low key for me too. But I can’t deny the results!

It’s a pretty cool move!

Carla September 5, 2013 - 1:13 pm

I live these! Anymove that lets me lay on the floor is a bonus.

I took semi private pilates classes for a few years – and they were amazing! I got so much out of it, from a new body awareness to the the awareness of muscles I never knew I had – mostly because they were sore! The shoulder bridge…ah, my butt does not thank me when I do them, but it thanks me later. 🙂

Nellie September 10, 2013 - 3:45 pm

🙂 I love pilates but I honestly don’t take it often enough. Funny how soreness introduces us to new muscles!!

Reply
Nellie September 10, 2013 - 3:50 pm

Sorry Janine! maybe there is a way to modify? I will look it up.

Listen, just by watching – I can already feel where this is going to hit me the most; core and glutes. As such, I need to try it, lol.

Reply
Nellie November 20, 2013 - 9:47 pm

yes, I have added these in, they are tough but worth it!
