Add the 100’s to your AB Routine

If you have taken a pilates class, then you are very familiar with the 100’s.

Try incorporating the 100’s into your ab routine today!

Goal:  To warm up the body by coordinating breath with movement.

How to perform:

  • 1.      Lie face up with legs to table top position at a 90 degree angle
  • 2.      Peel head & shoulders off mat, keeping abs pulled in
  • 3.      Lengthen legs out to 45 degrees (only if you can maintain a connection with your abdominals while not allowing back to arch)  keeping inner thighs together and abs drawing in
  • 4.     Pump hands up and down counting with each breath. Inhale 5 counts & exhale 5 counts until you hit 100

Tips: Keep your knees bent to table top until you are strong enough to maintain connection with abdominals on the mat.

Add Intensity: By adding a small ball or pilates ring between the ankles.
