March 25 – The Side Kick Kneeling
I don’t know why I look downward while doing this exercise. Was I too shy to look directly at the camera? Was I trying to feel more dancey looking beyond my hand? AND for no good reason (for my body, anyhow), I am modifying the top hand position to be in front instead of behind the head. To boot, because I filmed all 34 exercises in one shot, I’m looking pretty tired by now! I generally like side planks, but this one, with the added challenge of a leg swinging to challenge the stability of the trunk and pelvis supported by only your hand and knee…whew!
Thank you, Pilates for taking an already challenging exercise from side lying on the mat and picking it up a level away from the mat to a side plank. And for taking the challenge up a notch from its side lying version.
