Single Leg Stretch - Pilates Exercise 11 for Beginners
Tips for ParentBy Onlymyhealth Editorial Team / Feb 24, 2012
To tone the abdomen and thighs, Vesna Jacob from Vesna’s Wellness tells us how we should go about the single leg stretch. To start, keep the head raised on a pillow, raise the right leg in table top position and place one hand on the inside of the knee and the other on the outside. Pull the knee closer to the core. Do the same with the left leg. After repeating a couple of times, lift the left leg 45 degrees above the floor while pulling the knee of the right leg. Repeat with the alternative leg. Engage the arms by using one on either side of the knee and pushing the arms against each other to stabilise the leg.
