30-Day Pilates Body Challenge: day #7 (ab workout!)

Hi Beauties!

Are you ready kick off another week of strength-building Pilates?

Before we dive in, take a moment to celebrate the fact that you are STRONGER than you were 1 week ago. You have done the work. You are improving each day and it’s only going to get better from here.

Focus on how good that feels and let that motivate you as we continue on.

30 day challenge thumb day 7

If there’s one thing Pilates is known for, it’s the ability to develop deep core strength.

If you haven’t had a chance to watch my Pilates 101 video on how to effectively use your abdominal muscles, CLICK HERE.

Then you’ll be ready to dive into today’s ab workout…Enjoy!

(see modifications below)

Modifications: If you feel tired or sore in your neck, there’s a good chance you’re relying on your neck muscles to pick up the slack for weaker abdominal muscles. I recommend supporting your head with your hands or keeping your head on the mat while you build up your strength. You will still get great work out of exercises.

Daily Check-In: Did you know that practicing gratitude has a positive effect on your physical health? So snap a photo of something you’re grateful for today! Use the hashtag #30daypilatesbody on Instagram and Twitter so I can see your posts. 🙂

Cheers to a great week!



PS – Every month in The Sisterhood, we focus on a new monthly mission. If this is something you’d be interested in, you can join us by clicking here.

    It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Pilates ab workout. There’s something about Pilates that works those muscles like no other. I do find that my hips tend to pop when I do those leg dips/toe touches. Any suggestions on modifications?
