Pilates One Hundred Exercise
The Pilates One Hundred Exercise works your core. You can use a rope to ensure proper form. To get the full effect, make sure to keep your core tight throughout the exercise. The Pilates One Hundred exercise will work the following:
Like all Pilates, One Hundreds are grounded in the idea of using your legs to work your core. All the leg work you do, is associated with proper spine alignment and focus on your core holding your body in place. In this exercise, the powerhouse should be your core, not your spine. Remember to breath throughout the exercise. Keep your body centered, allowing you to focus on your core. Concentrate on using fluid motions, that put the stress on your abs, not other parts of your body.
