GET ALL 4 PILATES MAT SERIES WORKOUTS
Welcome to the Pilates Mat Series. Take your Pilates mat workouts to another level with the addition of some simple equipment and compound moves. The exercises are designed to lengthen and define your body in a joint friendly, low impact way that is suitable for all ages and exercise levels.
THE WORKOUTS ARE:
Pilates Band Mat (34 mins): You will start with a dynamic plank series that incorporates knee pulls and sit backs, move to a seated inner thigh series, and finally tough pretzel set with upper body band work.
Abs and Back (28 mins): You will start with upper, lower and oblique activation, move to a tough c-curve series for upper and obliques, add in some lower belly leg raises and finish with back extensions for upper and lower back.
Arms and Legs (39 mins): You will start with a dynamic triceps dip and kick combination, move to an inner thigh and arms series, an outer thigh and arms set and finally a lying glute and shoulder segment. The band takes things to a new level!
Abs and Lower (40 mins): You will start with a long inner thigh set in seated position, then side laying with ball squeezes, you will then move to a table top outer thigh and glute series and finish with a tough bicycle abs segment.
What is Barlates Body Blitz: Barlates is a fusion style workout that borrows from pilates, barre, ballet, yoga and more traditional cardio and toning. The idea was to create a workout, which flows seamlessly from one move into the next using the principles of isotension and high repetitions to build long, lean muscles. By using a lighter weight with high repetitions the exercises are designed to target all of those underused smaller muscle groups resulting in a defined, lengthened dancer's physique. This is a real girls workout in the sense that it is fun and feminine, but don't get me wrong it is still super intense with a big burn factor! The workouts are designed to be mixed and matched with an array of 20-30 minute upper body, lower body, abdominal and total body workouts that can be strung together for a longer session or done individually if you are short on time. These workouts will hit all those trouble spots and best of all you don't even need to wear shoes to do them! Get ready to sweat, puff and burn - hopefully you'll love every minute of it!
