GQ (Australia) - - GQ INC. -

Once re­stricted to hip­sters and detox en­thu­si­asts, Pi­lates is now the go-to for se­ri­ous ath­letes look­ing to im­prove bal­ance and build up their core. James Mag­nussen shares fve of his key ex­er­cises that can be done us­ing the kit in your av­er­age gym – no fancy Pi­lates ma­chine re­quired. Aim for twice a week, ei­ther as a stand­alone rou­tine or a reg­u­lar work­out on top. And re­mem­ber – slow and steady wins the race; it’s about care­ful, con­trolled move­ments, and stop if you feel your­self los­ing bal­ance, even if the rec­om­mended rep­e­ti­tions haven’t been com­pleted.
