Pilates Single Leg Stretch Exercise Video

This video illustrates the Single Leg Stretch exercise. It targets the transversus abdominus, rectus abdominus, obliques, scapular stabilizers and hip stabilizers.

Focus on maintaining an abdominal brace to keep legs lifted and moving without allowing the lumbar spine to extend (should remain neutral or in imprint). Maintain contraction of the obliques to keep the pelvis from rotating as the legs move, and keep the shoulders stabilized. If you feel strain in your neck, support the head with your hands or release the head to the floor.

As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any exercise program. If you should experience any pain or discomfort, please discontinue the exercise and consult your doctor immediately.

    I really like this exercise. I’ve been doing it for a while and I feel like I have really good core strength.

    Pilates is great for your health, and, along with yoga, I find it more enjoyable than traditional forms of exercise because of the emphasis on WHOLE body rather than targeting so-called “problem spots.” A healthy attitude is the most important part of physical activity!
