Intermediate Pilates : Strengthen and Tone Arms

Posted in Ab Exercise Wheel/Roller Slide,How-To,Pilates,Pilates Bands by Harmony on October 7, 2010

Strengthen and tone your arms using elastic exercise bands, or Pilates Bands, while performing Pilates exercises. This following video is only 5 1/2 minutes long and will cover four different exercises to work your arms. Two of those exercises use a 6′ Pilates Band to add resistance for toning.

Learn how to do the 1) Leg Pull Lift, 2) Side Lifts (w/ bands), 3) Forward Lifts (w/ bands), 4) Press Ups.

On a side note, the Press Ups should be a good practice exercise for those who would like to use an Exercise Wheel for core, arm, and shoulder strengthening.  The practice of hinging at the hips, walking out and back while piking the hips and engaging the core would help simulate the actions you need to take when using an ab wheel.
