Day 13: Shaped & Toned Lean Legs, lower body day!

Instructor: Kristine Chaussard
Level: All Levels

Focus :   

Exercises for toned lean legs, thighs, hips, glutes and booty. Mixing some classical Pilates exercises with functional fitness exercises like squats and lunges to tone up, firm up and tighten up. Weights are incorporated for furthering that shaping and toning, fat burning and getting more visible definition out of those muscles. All exercises will work in both concentric and eccentric parts of movement for balanced musculature and a leaner silhouette. Today’s class goes 40 minutes long, longer than our last classes in the program to test our progression of stamina and endurance.

NOTE: Please remember, if you are new to Pilates or weight training, or you simply do not have hand weights, then follow today’s workout using body weight only. You can add the weights in once you are confident you are able to move in best alignment and form. We are using the addition of weights for the specific goals of burning fat and increasing lean muscle mass as they help us reach these goals.

Equipment Needed :     

Your mat, a booty band, ankle weights if you have them (a fun and practical addition), and 1 heavier set of dumbbells. In addition, if you have a box, chair, step or stair, it will be useful for one exercise.

Class Level :     

ALL levels.

The Course of this Class :   

We repeat them over and over again but that is because they are efficient, functional and get the work done! What am I talking about? Lunges, squats, Romanian dead lifts (rdls), single leg rdls, curtsy lunges and Bulgarian squats. Then we’ll take it to the mat for some more traditional, classical Pilates exercises side lying. From clam shell to kneeling side kicks and bear crouch with glute presses. We will work not only the larger muscle groups but all our micro supporting muscles in feet and ankles. Our hip to knee to ankle alignment will be strengthened today. Balance and proprioception will be worked as well. From developing more power to more control while toning and sculpting.

Today’s class was longer there is no need to add in another workout or repeat this. Make sure not to overdo in this program as we are stacking our days and our workouts, rest is just as important. There are however other lower body workouts suggestions below for your information to save to do later if you’d like.
