Pilates for Menopause Weight Gain
We’ll begin this sample of free pilates workout exercises with “The Hundred”.
Begin by lying on your back, knees bent, lower legs extended. Contract abdominals, pulse your arms to keep count as you inhale for five and exhale for five. Do as many reps as you can, working up to 100. Gradually work up to straight legs.
This is one of my favorite pilates moves, it’s a great core strengthener! Lie on your tummy, arms and legs extended.
Lift your left arm and right leg, reaching out as well as up, then switch sides, achieving a smooth swimming motion. Keep your head in line with your spine and hips in contact with the floor. Repeat 10 reps each side.
For this exercise, lie on your back with knees bent. Draw your right knee toward your chest, extend left leg and suspend several inches above the floor.
Bring left hand to right knee, right hand to right ankle. Curl chin to chest as you draw right knee, then left knee gently toward the chest. Repeat 10x each side
This fun exercise looks like the child’s play that inspired it, but actually challenges your core muscles. It also releases serotonin, a natural ‘feel good’ chemical, making it a great way to begin your day.
Begin by holding your ankles, curling chin to chest and balancing on your tail bone. Inhale, rolling back to your shoulders, then exhale back to balance on your bum. Repeat 10x.
