Spent the day at @bodypowerexpo today 💪🏼 Enjoyed talks from @bencoomber @btnacademy and @tombainbridge1990
Great to walk around with @burrowspt and see what was what! Still think there was room for a Pilates stand though 😏
The benefits of Pilates on these athletes bodies would be outstanding...... let’s keep our eyes peeled .... never know what the future holds 😉
🌾 cadillac action 🌾 definitely my first time trying this splitty cadillac action inspired by @alinennfisioo + @pilatestv 🌾 certainly not perfect alignment or execution but...that’s why it’s PRACTICE, right? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 🌾

How balanced are you? As in actual balance, like can you stand on one leg?? Balance can be a pretty good indicator of how well your muscles are working through your core and all your stabilising muscles. If you are on any kind of exercise journey these are your key injury prevention crutches. These are compromised throughout pregnancy due to relaxin loosening the joints making them more unstable, so new mums have a little more of this work to do to get back to running etc. Walk, running, cycling, dancing and swimming amongst pretty much everything else depends on your body using one limb at a time and more often than not, having your weight or pushing through that single limb. Take running for example when you land on one leg your body weight (roughly x7, so if you weigh 70kg, 490kgs!!!!) is going through that leg and those joints, structures and muscles. When your balance and the strength of those stabilising muscles is comprised so is your joint and muscle health. Try this sequence and test your balance.
Weight through heal, wiggles your toes and st back into it. 🏃♀️
