GET A GREAT CORE WORKOUT EVERY DAY
These quick and simple pilates moves from Claudel Kuek, owner of Powermoves Pilates, mean you won’t have any excuse not to work out anymore.
Side kick (for legs and abs) Lie on one side and lean on your elbow. Lift your top leg to hip height. Breathe out, swing your leg as far forward as possible, breathe in and swing it back as far as you can. Point your toes; elongate your leg. Do this 15 times on each side.
Criss-cross (for abs) Lie on your back with your knees bent, hands behind your head. Breathe in, lift your shoulders off the mat. Breathe out, twist your right shoulder towards your left knee and extend your right leg. Do this 15 times on each side.
Pelvic curl (for abs, butt and thighs) Lie on your back with your feet on the floor, hip-width apart. Breathe in, lift your buttocks off the floor. Keep neck and shoulders relaxed. Breathe out, go back to starting position. Do this five times.
