Pilates Workout for All Levels in 30 Minutes

When you think of strength workouts, you probably image rigorous exercises, heavy weights, and perspiration dripping down your body. Even if you’re not dripping in sweat and begging your trainer for 30 more recovery seconds, you can still get stronger. Do you require additional proof? Brian Spencer of East River Pilates leads us through a 30-minute full-body Pilates workout that is the right balance of gentle and tough in the latest episode of Good Moves.

“We’re going to conduct a great 30-minute all-levels Pilates session today. So we’re just going to do some head-to-toe stabilisation, strengthening, and stretching “Spencer explains. This may appear to be a lot, but trust us when we say it’ll leave your muscles feeling flexible and long, your body feeling more open, and your mind feeling rejuvenated. There’s no need to rush through reps or feel obligated to “go hard” because the Pilates method concentrates on slow-twitch muscles.

Instead, when you begin to add heat to your body, plan to move slowly and deliberately through moves like squats, forward folds, and downward-facing dog. You’ll also complete a hamstring strengthening and stretching series, which will surprise you with how good you feel right afterward, as well as a “juicy” core series that includes forward curls and oblique twists.

After this 30-minute full-body Pilates workout, your hamstrings, hips, back, abs, and triceps—to name a few of the muscles worked—will feel like new. You still don’t believe us? Prepare to reset your mind and muscles by playing your favourite relaxed playlist and watching the video above.
