Try This: Pilates Breaststroke

No swim cap necessary

The breaststroke exercise is my absolute favorite Pilates exercise to teach. In fact, if I could pick one exercise from the Pilates repertoire to practice for the rest of my life, this one would be my “main squeeze.” 

Here’s why: we are all slouchers. I know, I know, you’ve heard it before—but it’s true! We often initiate movement from the lumbar spine, which really should be more of a stabilizer, instead of the mid to upper back, which is where we should be getting most of our movement from. When our upper back becomes over kyphotic (rounded forward) it becomes both stiff and weak, wreaking havoc on our spine and neck.

The good news is that you can work to correct poor posture and its accompanying pain through Pilates!

Try This: How to do a BOSU® Ball Squat

Why you should be doing BOSU ball squats

Walking squats, single leg squats, or squatting on an unstable surface can help add core, hip, glute and foot strength.

Work on a proper squat form in place, then try walking it. Finally, give the BOSU ball a try.
