Weekly Wednesday Workout: Double Leg Kicks

 

Time to work out those hammies, glutes and lower back!

This move is very interesting, seeing that its a pilates move it may not get your heart rate super high but it will be pretty good at toning the legs and the glutes! I rarely have moves that have you lie on your tummy but this one is pretty great. The breathing is a little weird for me but I trust the Pilates process. You start to feel the burn pretty quickly in your hammies and buns. I suppose if you wanted to be adventurous you could put a weight in between your feet! 🙂

Have you ever tried Double LEg lifts?

I will have to remember to give them a try tonight. The breathing looks a bit strange to me too but it’s worth a try. My hammies need to get more toned.

Well this is an interesting one! I have to say that I’ve never seen this move – probably because it’s a pilates move and I haven’t done pilates in forever! I’ll have to try this one for sure.

I’ve done something similar with one of my Pilates DVDs but I must have been doing it worn because I really never felt it much – might have to try again.

I think its effective, but I think with a weight it will burn quicker!

I could put Des on my legs! That would be an exercise and a half. He wouldn’t stay still, though!

I’ve never seen that move before. I can definitely see how it would get the hamstrings and lower back. You’r right, though, the breathing is kind of weird.

Nellie February 14, 2014 - 7:41 pm

I don’t know, maybe because I don’t take Pilates regularly.

New to me. I may give it a try later. I’m just getting into balancing types of classes.
