10 minutes pilates workout

10 minutes pilates workout
In the early 20th century, Joseph Pilates invented the series of movements to help English veterans recover from injuries sustained during the First World War. Since then, Pilates has been the go-to regimen for anyone — from New York City Ballet dancers to Madonna to the San Francisco 49ers — interested in working on strength, grace, and of course, a solid core.

This 10 Minute Pilates Routine effectively targets the upper and lower abdominals, obliques, and back. Many of these Pilates exercises also target and tone the glutes and thighs.
Doing this abs workout just twice through will make for a 10 minute Pilates routine. To garner the most toning benefits, do this three times through, every other day of the week. The only equipment that you will need is a thick Pilates mat.

How to do this Beginner’s Pilates Workout?

Do each exercise for the set time period or indicated number of repetitions. Do the entire routine at least twice through, but three times through in order to make the most gains in strength, flexibility, and muscle tone.
This form of exercise not only increases functional strength and flexibility but also encourages a certain attentiveness between an individual and their body. Pilates forces a level of body awareness that you just can’t get from plodding away mindlessly on a treadmill or pedaling away on a stationary bike.
