10 Minute Pilates Planking Routine

Here we have a short video by John Garey.

Using a "typical" plank stance he adds in some leg lift and ankle flexion and extension for a bit of variety. He then switches to side side bends from the knees to challenge your balance and stretch out your side.

Next comes the Leg Pull but with bent knees to work on stabilising your hips and strengthen your glutes and legs.

Then repeat it all.

We would suggest try one repeat as some of these moves may be new to you.

If you have wrist problems this routine may not be for you.

Otherwise, give it a try, You may find your wrists ache a little but that could be because they aren't strong. They will strengthen in time.

Have fun!!!!!
