Advanced Pilates Exercises : How to do Pilates Kneeling Side Kick Exercise


Very good! The next exercise I am going to
demonstrate for you is called a side kick. Go ahead and come up to your knees this time.
Your hips are going to be in line with your knees and your knees are going to be in line
with your ankles. Navel is going to come toward your spine and we are just going to balance
on the left leg first. So go ahead and take your right leg and send it out to the side.
Hip is still in line with your knee. Your left hand is going to support you but go ahead
and place your hand on the floor. You can keep your hand on your hip or behind your
head for more of a challenge. Your abs are going to stay pulled into your spine supporting
yourself with a left leg. You are going to slowly lift that right leg off the floor without
sitting back or tipping over. You are going to stay right on top of that leg, flexing
your foot, inhaling as you bring that foot forward, point exhale, pull that leg straight
back and pulse too. Inhale keep forward and pulse as you go back. Inhale, pulse keep forward,
point, exhale and come back center. Bend that knee and switching to the other side. Supporting
yourself with the right hand, right hip over that right knee, hand on the hip or behind
the head and let that left leg up. Flex and inhale forward, point exhale. Flex, inhale,
point exhale. Very good! Come back center, lower, come to those knees and come back to
starting.
