6 Week Challenge:
?Four Point Kneeling Derrière exercise?
1️⃣Set up: Start in a four point kneeling position with your hands or wrists under your shoulder and your knees separated under your hips. Place your stretched legs foot on the floor. The leg is gently turned out from the top of the thigh. Try keep your torso square to the mat.
2️⃣Exercise: Inhale: to prepare.
Exhale: slowly lift your thigh up behind you, engaging your derrière, hamstring, lower abdominals and pelvic floor. Inhale: slowly lower the leg down to hover just off the floor.
My Pilates tips:
1. Can be practiced in 1,2,3 trimester.
2. You have to engage your lats and draw your shoulders out of your ears.
4. If you are feeling this in your lower back you need to activate your abdominals more or lower your leg height.
