Weekly Wednesday Workout: Pilates Pulls

Today it’s time to stretch those legs!

I have never seen this before as I have gone to a Pilates class exactly one time in my life (I want to change that!) but this is not the easiest of moves. It provides a really good stretch in your lower leg area while working everything else in the plank position. If you have ankle troubles I would stay away from this exercise. It is a great way to switch things up by adding this move to your routine!

Have you ever tried Pilates Pulls?

I also have been to maybe one Pilates class but, I think I’ve done a variation of this from a plank on my elbows! Kind of looks like a great hammy and calf stretch which I need badly after Reach the Beach!!!

Definitely don’t think I can do these, but they do look like they give a great workout to your leg muscles. Thanks for sharing 😉

Niiice. I’ve done this before, but never with only one foot. I’ll be trying it!

I’ve never tried this! I’ve done something kind of similar but not exactly the same.

Have you tried Chaise Fitness? Their classes are not strictly pilates but they are pilates inspired and I really like them!

I haven’t seen this pilates move either. I’m going to have to try it though, because I love compound exercises. It’s all about getting in the most workout for the shortest amount of time!

Whoa! I can almost feel that in my ankles.
Looks totally productive.

I love this. I also love the video you chose. I use those videos a lot because they are so good at really walking you through.
