Day 13: Toned & Shaped Legs for a Lean Lower Body

Instructor: Kristine Chaussard
Level: All Levels
Focus :   

Toning exercises for shaped legs & a strong balanced lower body. These moves will lean and sculpt hips, glutes and thighs. Using both resistance and weights to shape and tone for more definition in the lower body and fat burn while building in muscle. You have everything from functional to classical exercises today and we go to the edge of our 40 minutes to also test our stamina and improvement since beginning our program.

If you do not have weights, are new to Pilates or weight training, then follow today’s workout using body weight only with the Reformer. You can add the weights in once you are confident in your movement patterns using best alignment and form. Also, know that the weights are not necessary but if you goal is to lose fat and gain more lean muscle mass, they significantly help towards those goals.

Equipment Needed :     

Reformer, 1 heavier set of dumbbells, and the Reformer box. If you do not have a box, I will give you modifications for those exercises using it.

Class Level :     

ALL levels. For those exercises that are more intermediate or advanced level suggestions will be given as to how you can modify. Be mindful in all your movement, practice best form and never sacrifice form for function. This way you’ll slowly but surely progress your fitness and practice level.

The Course of this Class :   

Since we’ve been at this program for a bit now, we jump right in with side lying legs and quadruped swings. This is our warm up! Then, get ready for functional squats, Romanian dead lifts (rdls), single leg rdls, lunges, hamstrings curls and Bulgarian squats. We’ll be challenging our hip to knee to ankle alignment today, strengthening not just the legs and larger muscles but all the supporting micro muscles to the feet and ankles. Balance will be worked as well, and proprioception. From developing more power to more control while toning and sculpting.

Today was longer and there is no need to do more. It is important to not overdo in this program also as we are stacking our workouts each day and our bodies need rest in between.
