Day 20 marchMATness2018: #sidekicks . We're back at @c.o.r.e.fitnessandperformance trading one 🍑 workout for another. #whentrainerstraintrainers 🙌🤸♂️
We're huge fans of #crosstraining at PCS. Keep your body healthy and at its most efficient with #pilates .
Tips: Sidekicks (like most Pilates exercises) are seemingly easy until you can really dig into proper form. Here, we're working with Casey to help him turn on his glutes a little more and turn down the ever-powerful hip flexors. This tool makes for a more #balancedbody . As always, your entire body should be active, supported and stretched. Don't slouch, reach for the walls away from you and find the work in #thework . 👍💪
Still not sure what #marchmatness is all about? The global Pilates community comes together every March and showcases the original mat work, as created by Joseph Pilates, in its original order. Ideally, this mat work would be completed all at once 3-4 times a week. Check out all the other #fitspo using the #marchmatness2018 hashtag. Have fun 🤸♂️🤸♂️
#MarchMATness Day 19: The Jack Knife
Last week to donate to @fwpetfoodpantry! Bring your donation to the studio and we’ll make sure it gets there! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Muscle Focus: Spinal Flexors, Abs
History: Sometimes the leg and torso extension is fully straight, other times there’s a bit of a pelvic tilt. Either way, it is difficult!
How-To: Lying on your back, bring your legs into tabletop. Extend the legs out to a 45 degree angle, then start to bring the legs over your torso, keeping the abs lifted. Lower the legs slightly over your head and then extend the legs up towards the ceiling. Slowly start to lower the spine down, vertebrae by vertebrae, until the hips touch the mat and lower the legs back down to 45 degrees. Repeat. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Modification: Hey, did you get that roll over yet? No? Keep working on it, and then progress to the Jack Knife #puremovers#marchmatness2018
Purpose is something I give a thought of thought to.
The purpose of an exercise. The purpose of the words I choose while teaching. My student's purpose for doing Pilates, or even showing up to class on a particular day.
People show up to exercise for all kinds of reasons, but I can only share my purpose, and that is to facilitate feeling *well* in your body.
I don't give an F about a "summer body" or "abs." Summer is a season, a body is f o r e v e r. I want to get on and off the floor when I'm 80. Maybe that kind of purpose is too far off for most to connect with, but I find a lot more comfort in a goal like that than trying to grasp to some fleeting aesthetic. If you're looking to do your life better- your 'thing' better, you're in good company. I support you.
A word that controls most of our lives including my own. A feeling that can keep us stuck in life and prevent us from moving forward towards our goals and dreams. Fear is triggered by the perception of danger whether it’s real or imagined. More often than not, this fear is brought about by things we imagine. The mind is deceitful and WILL lie to you. Discomfort and change are two things the mind hates! So when you do one of them the mind will tell you all sorts of lies to get you to stop and go back to its original flow.
So what is the opposite of fear?
Being brave is hearing that voice of fear in your head, but saying, “Okay, but the truth is, God made me on purpose and for a purpose.”
“For I hold you by your right hand— I, the Lord your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.” - Isaiah 41:13
What is one BRAVE thing you did this week?
It’s essentially impossible to fully “isolate” one muscle. The body is/ works as one unit and every movement we do is somehow affected along the rest of the kinetic chain. Whether you’re doing a lunge or just carrying a bag of groceries, each movement triggers a chain reaction along that particular myofascial meridian of the body. So even if we’re attempting to isolate a certain muscle, shouldn’t we be aware of what’s going on around that muscle and throughout the rest of the body too?🤔 I’d make the case for muscle strength over muscle power any day. Incorporating full body integrated movements means not only building strong muscles, but muscles that are better coordinated to tackle whatever you need your body to accomplish, whether you’re an athlete or just someone who wants to look their best and steer clear of injury. #worksmarternotharder#team38#carbon38#balancedbody#balancedbodypilates

We missed #teasertuesday , but this goes out to the incredible @laurabpilates .
Teaser is the exercise for Day 21!! Teaser strengthens the core and helps to coordinate spinal articulation with core control. Make sure your eyes and toes hit the mat at the same time on the roll down! Since the studio is closed, you can practice all your Mat exercises! .
Alright #MarchMatness , I’ve been slacking on this because I’m knee deep in aerial, but I didn’t want to my neglect pilates for too long 😩 Here’s my version of #teaser with some lumbar spine articulation + balance work with the assistance of the straps.

Doing some rear-delt work. I was having a discussion with a friend about how one should start their fitness journey.
As we discussed our strengths and weaknesses, I realized the natural urge to focus on the latter and neglect the other. While strategically emphasizing certain muscles groups may be a great idea, neglecting muscle groups can create an imbalance. Just my two cents, but find a balance in your workouts, strengthen your body, then kick back and relax!
