28 Days of Pilates: day 20


Hi Beauties!

I’m running around like a crazy woman today so I’m keeping this morning’s post short and sweet.

Today’s workout is full of challenging abdominal exercises – a few  traditional Pilates exercises paired with some fun variations.

Remember that it is 100% okay (and recommended) to modify exercises to make them work for your body. My intent is to challenge you and I don’t expect you to be able to do everything perfectly!

I have to provide something to work for right?


Also, if looking for ways to modify exercises as you increase your strength and flexibility you may enjoy this post:

Enjoy your workout!

(if you are unable to prop yourself up on your elbows simply lie flat on your back)

Today’s Check-In: just post a photo to show me that you’re getting it done! We have 10 days left so checking-in is the best way to stay motivated 🙂

    Those criss-cross leg moves are tricky! Which is a good thing. Great abs challenge today!

    Hang in there and good luck with your crazy-busy day! I appreciate you taking the time to create each video and post.

    My husband and I are doing these challenges together every day– and loving them! Too bad February is a short month… we’ll really miss these daily challenges, and we are SO grateful for your work in offering this program.
