So, how are you feeling after 3 days of Pilates?
Good I hope!
And I hope you’re ready for more because we’re just getting started. 🙂
Today we’re focusing on the upper body.
One thing to keep in mind is that in Pilates (and in life) it’s important to keep your shoulders in their proper place. They should be relaxed on your back, not tensed up by your ears.
In fact, pause right now, sit up straight and relax your shoulders down your back. Doesn’t that feel better?
The shoulder joint is the most unstable joint in the body.
The arm bone rests in a shallow groove and relies on the surrounding muscles and tendons to keep it in it’s proper place. So strengthening the muscles of the arms, upper back and chest is very important to avoid injury and keep your bones in place.
As you do this workout remember to keep your shoulders away from your ears.
Think: strong broad shoulders.
With that in mind, let’s workout!
Today is all about the arms. Oh my, do I need this. Tank top season is just around the corner my friends….(thank goodness).
Day #4 social media check-in: take a photo of your exercise space. Inside, outside, kids crawling all over you? It doesn’t have to be fancy, it’s just for fun and I want to see it! Don’t forget to hashtag #28daysofpilates. I’ll be doing the same.
Enjoy your workout!
