Most people lose the real benefits of the Pilates roll-down exercise and never realize it. In this new video series, I’ve broken the roll-down into basic steps that will completely upgrade the way you do it and help you get way more out of it.
In today’s video I’m going to show you the first step to getting all you can out of your roll-down.
The roll-down is one of my favorite Pilates exercises because it feels fantastic in my back and connects me deeply to my core structure.
Every time I feel that core connection, I know I’m maximizing my session, avoiding injury and not wasting any time or energy with my efforts. And all it takes is a few really good repetitions to get all the benefits!
The roll-down can be a very safe and effective exercise if you focus on the detail in the movement. Moving too quickly and working from your global muscles can cause more harm than good by putting excess pressure on the pelvic floor, compressing the spine and strengthening poor patterns in your body.
With a little extra attention to detail at the beginning of your roll-down, you’ll be surprised by just how effectively the roll-down enhances your spinal mobility and deepens your core ability.
