Pilates 101 pelvic curl

Pelvic curl is great for working the butt and the back of the legs, plus there is so many variations to add on to the basic I just love this exercise.

Pointers:

– Keep abdominals engaged at all times to avoid tension within the lower back

– The inner thighs must be activated to keep the legs in the parallel position

– The hips must remain level throughout.

Avoid:

– Jamming the chin into the chest

– Arching and pushing into your lower back while in the bridge position.
