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
Option 1: Shown in video
Option 2: Incorporate ankle weights
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!
