Learn how to do the Pilates “Series of Five” with hand weights. You can use your choice of hand weights – whichever you think are the most comfortable for you to hold and which ones would offer you the most versatility allowing you to use in other exercises of your choice. Consider small soft neoprene dumbbells, neoprene grip weights, or Pilates soft weighted toning balls.

The video is just over four minutes long and will cover the details on doing five Pilates floor exercises: Single Leg Stretch, Double Leg Stretch, Scissors, Lower Lift, and Criss Cross. All while holding the small hand weights to add arm strengthening and toning while performing these ab and leg workouts.
