Pilates Side Plank with Leg Raise (Lv 1)

Exercise Instructions

Lie on your right side with your thighs together, your right knee bent at a 90° angle and your left leg extended out straight. Prop your upper body up on your forearm and elbow, and press your shoulder down and away from your neck. Inhale.
Exhale, lifting your hips up so that your body forms a straight line from your head to your knee. Place your left hand on your hip and keep the line from shoulder to shoulder perpendicular to the ground. Inhale.
Exhale, and raise your left leg up as high as you can, then inhale as you lower it back down to hover over the ground. When set repetitions are complete, repeat on the opposite side.

Exercise Purpose

This Pilates exercise targets the obliques and outer thighs as well as the stabilizing muscles in the shoulder and core. This particular level of this exercise requires minimal core strength and balance, which makes it great for beginners. This move is an excellent way to tone and strengthen the hips and thighs as well as slim your waistline.
