I’ve always liked the idea of Pilates, but was so terribly inflexible that I struggled during the classes, and I certainly can’t make myself watch a DVD. Not that inspirational. However, I’ve found that doing a few routines with difficult moves (like the one I show below) isn’t too bad, and brings a great challenge. I’ve also been told by my physical therapists – many times – that Pilates would be good for me.
Drawing from POPilates (the blog is here), I’ll be doing one of her ab-Pilates routines. Cassey makes wonderful printouts of all her workouts; check her out! [click picture for higher resolution]
I’ll also be doing my slightly longer elliptical routine since one of my favorite shows is on tonight (much love for USA’s White Collar). I like to hold a moderate pace during the show bits, and up the speed and intensity during the commercials. Frequently, I’ll also hop off during a commercial in the middle and have a good stretch – 60 minutes on one machine is a long time!
