Happy Monday, everyone!

My gift to you for waking up and showing up for this brand new week is one of my favorite workouts to teach in my advanced Reformer Pilates classes. It targets the “forgotten” muscles of the booty (gluteus medius) and is an incredibly versatile series of exercises. The video demonstrates one of the easier versions of this workout, but there are several variations that can increase the difficulty if you’re looking for more of a challenge.

***Below options progress from beginning to advanced

MAT

Option 1: Shown in video

Option 2: Incorporate ankle weights

REFORMER

Option 1: Side lying on carriage with 1 blue spring

Option 2: Side lying on carriage with 1 red spring

Option 3: Side lying on long box with head towards head rest with 1 blue spring

Option 4: Side lying on long box with 1 red spring

Option 5: Side lying on long box with 1 blue spring + ankle weights

Option 6 (if you’re insane): Side lying on long box with 1 red spring + ankle weights

 

Give it a go and let me know how those booties feel when you’re done!

 

xo, Ashley
