IF YOU KNOW ME YOU KNOW I LOOOOOVEEE PILATES!
Pilates is just really one of my favorite workouts ever. It’s totally a Victoria’s Secret model workout because it lengthen, leans, & tones.
Plus you can lay down half the time…LOL.
It’s veryyyy difficult to squeeze in a full class. My schedule is a not a routine ( sometimes I really wish it was ). So basically my day is about as unpredictable as a woman on Aunt Flow. I mean I’m all over the place.
So if I can find the time for Pilates, I’ll try to squeeze in a Proformer class ( someone yelled at me on Instagram for calling this Pilates…but I just don’t take life that seriously I guess? I mean GEEZ! It’s VERY similar ) or practice mat Pilates with a girlfriend.
Most of the time though?
I practice Pilates at home.
Here’s an example of a quick, easy Pilates move you can do in about 15 seconds ( no excuses now! ):
Directions: assume a plank position on either side. Bring the hand that is raised down to the floor then raise for desired rep range. Make sure your arm is locked at the top of every rep. Engage core & squeeze glutes for extra support.
Muscles used: obliques, lower back, core, & my favorite: the shoulders!
Beginner: 10 reps each side
Intermediate: 20 reps each side
Advanced: 30 reps each side
Note: I’ve been known to do this move while my friend’s are on the phone or while I’m waiting for a spelt English muffin to toast. #guilty
Hey, whenever I can get it in, right?
A lot of you guys have asked about fitness lately hence my latest workout-esque posts ( here & here ). I’ve been holding on ya though because I’ve been working around the clock to bring you guys TSC fitness/nutrition program. It’s literally sucking up my soul like an encounter with a Dementor from Harry Potter, so bear with me! It’s about a month away from launching.
Okkkkk outfit deets: this specific get-up is from Missguided’s new active wear line & is especially fab for Pilates because I can wear it while I’m running errands, to the office, or even to the grocery store ( it seems like we’re always running out of paper towels, green grapes, & sparkling water ).
Anyway these black wet-shorts are so fun— they totally remind me of the 80’s, in all the best way. And they’re $19 bucks. YES.
