#MondayMotivation💪 One of my go-tos, especially if I'm short on time, is the pilates push up . The push up targets the transverse abdominis, rectus abdominis, obliques, hip abductors and extensors, the scapular stabilizers, triceps and pecs - so it's great to activate a wide variety of muscles beyond the core . The #pilatespushup also challenges stability, mobility, endurance and balance . It is important to maintain a neutral pelvic position and a wide stable shoulder girdle throughout . I especially like to reverse the staggered elbow flexion with staggered extension . I did 3 staggered elbow flexion push ups followed by 3 staggered elbow extension push ups adding a pike between and before the walk back . #MondayMotivation #dopilates #dopilatesyoullfeelbetter #zoompilates #StayHome #StayHealthy #StayPositive

Monday Motivation The Pilates Push Up!
