PEBBLES is proud to introduce to you three simple cues in how to do the Single Leg Stretch Pilates exercise. The Single Leg Stretch mainly targets the following muscles: transversus, deep pelvic floor, obliques, multifidus, hip flexors and scapula stabilizers.
WATCH THE VIDEO OF HOW TO DO THE SINGLE LEG STRETCH PILATES EXERCISE:
Lay on your back with the upper body flexed off the mat, stabilize scapula, legs in tabletop and hands on the outside of the leg.
On an exhale extend one leg to a diagonal and move outside hand to ankle and inside hand to the knee of the flexed leg.
On an inhale begin to switch legs and hands. And on exhale fully extend the leg.
Caution: Only extend the leg as low as you can hold pelvic stability.
Fun fact: Using a body piece in your Pilates workout will help you be more present in each position.
