Pilates doing Pilates Exercises: Double Leg Stretch Joseph Pilates 34 contrology poses
(1) Serious students: buy & study “Return to Life…”!
(2) Avoid potential injury! – Join the “Pilates Community” at your local gym or studio.
(3) Tips on posture and muscle tensioning – “Pilates Contrology”.
This exercise is challenging and very adaptable.
I use it in my Fatloss Fitcamp sessions by adding a twin handled medicine ball to increase the load on core and shoulder muscles.
