This is a full body workout. Strengthen your core: abs, glutes, hips and lower back. Move out to your upper body: rhomboids, trapezius, deltoids, triceps, forearms, wrists and hands. Work your lower body: inner thighs, quads, hamstrings, soleus, tbia, ankles and feet.
Use of equipment not only adds more challenge to your workout, it also assists to make certain moves more accessible. Marcia shares how the basic principles of Pilates apply to this equipment based mat workout.
