The Pilates Hundred

The Pilates Hundred is a classic exercise designed to:

  • strengthen the abdominals
  • improve core stabilization
  • increase breath control
  • boost oxygen flow and circulations
  • warm up the body

In today’s video I’ll walk you through it, provide modifications and help you get the most out of the exercise.

    I love the idea of these little videos – thank you, Robin!! The Hundred is definitely my bugaboo. I’d much rather do the rollup! πŸ™‚ I have to keep my head and neck down because of a neck injury, but I find it still hurts my neck to do this. Any thoughts?

    • Robin Long 2 weeks ago

      Yes! Try folding a small towel and placing it under your head. That should feel better. I hope it helps!

    Hi robin!
    When you extend your legs in hundred does your back fall out of neutral automatically by lengthening legs?

    • Robin Long 2 weeks ago

      Not necessarily. It is possible to maintain neutral with extended legs – but I recommend keeping a flat back because you have to be pretty strong and stable to maintain neutral without strain. πŸ™‚
