Pilates Class 6: With Arms Wide Open

We did some serious arm exercises today and I left feeling super swol. As shown in the video below, this exercise was a serious upper arm workout and is definitely harder than it looks. A big key to this exercise is good posture, something that I find very important seeing how I’m 5’9” and a tall girl slouching is just sad. Not only in this exercise, but in everything you do in pilates, proper posture is vital in getting the most of your workout and making sure you create long, lean muscles in the right places. So we focused on sitting up tall and lengthening muscles while working those upper arms.

We do at least one arm workout in every class and this one shown below is definitely one of the tougher ones. Anything that includes pulling your own body resistance can be tough, but that just makes the reward so much greater!

Until next time,
