How to Do Pilates Double Leg Kick Exercise - part of the women's fitness video series by GeoBeats.
Hello we're Katherine and Kimberly Corp. We own Pilates on Fifth in New York City and we would like to show you the Pilates exercise, Double Leg Kick. So Kimberly's going to lie on her tummy for this exercise. The legs are squeezing together, so your inner thighs are working even in the start position. Now even when you're lying on your stomach, you still want to pull in your abdominal muscles in. So its like you're trying to lift them up off the mat. And notice that her hands are right underneath the shoulders and its like she's balancing on the tip of her nose. So now we're going to have her place her hands at the small of her back, reaching it back here. Good. And she's going to turn her face to one side. And here we go to start the exercise. So we will exhale for 3 counts. Exhale bending the knees 3 times, exhale-exhale-exhale. Now she'll inhale, she'll straighten her legs, reaching her arms out, lifting up the full extension, and now turning the other way. Exhale-exhale-exhale, inhale lifting up. Now this is a more challenging exercise. So if you have trouble with the swan dive or exercises using your hands, this might be a little challenging because we're working all the muscles of the back here, working with the glutes as well. And exhale-exhale-exhale, inhale lifting up like you're pulling from the top of her head. Notice she's not scrunching in her neck. Exhale-exhale-exhale, inhale lifting up, just one more to keep it even. And exhale-exhale-exhale, inhale lifting up and notice the legs also aren't going too wide. And then she's going to rest back down. And its always nice after doing exercise is that a really intense lower back just a press back, and give the back a nice little relaxation move after an exercise such as the Pilates, Double Leg Kick.
How to Do Pilates One Leg Kick Exercise - part of the women's fitness video series by GeoBeats.
Hi we're Kimberly and Katherine Corp of Pilates on Fifth in New York City and we're going to show you the Pilates exercise, One Leg Kick. So Katherine will roll to her stomach and the first thing she'll do is prop herself up on her elbows. You want your elbows right under your shoulders. Now the key here is the position so we'll do it wrong first. Notice how she's collapsed, like she's lying on the beach watching the waves, relaxing. So we don't want that. You want to press into your elbows and really stabilize the shoulders. Then you want to scoop in your abs, contract your Gluteus Maximus, which is your butt muscles here. So notice her hip bones are off the mat but her pubic bone is on the mat. So with your hips, your hips are an extension, but your spine is pretty much in neutral, and that is where the work comes in is keeping your abdominals engaged here so you get the work in the glutes and the hamstrings. And from here we go, we're going to bend the right leg first and we kick-kick and then reach. And we exhale-exhale, inhale reach. Now notice she's pointing and flexing, exhale-exhale, inhale reach. So she points it, and flex, and reaches. And points and flexes and reach. Now you could eliminate the point and flex if that's too much coordination. So the key here is when you bend the knee, you don't let anything shift in the spine and the torso. And if your knees hurt when you do this, just modify the range of motion. I'm going to put my hand up, you can stop right there and that would be fine. And we'll just do the last one. And that is the Pilates exercise, One Leg Kick.
