This lower body thigh slimming pilates workout is a great way to shape your legs and even your lower abs. It helps lift and tone your glutes and thighs without intense impact. All though pilates may seem boring or easy at times, if you do it the right way you’ll really feel the burn!
Doing a 10 minute pilates routine is not enough as a stand alone workout. It barely burns any calories and if you’re looking to achieve a killer lower body then pilates alone isn’t going to get it done. You want to be doing strength training and HIIT as well to achieve better and faster results. On the other hand, pilates is still a great training style on recovery days or as additional workouts after a cardio, strength or HIIT workout. My favorite time to do a lower body pilates is right after a brutal lower body strength/HIIT. It really makes the workout more effective and helps really burn those legs. It may seem easy, but if you’re doing it right, you should be struggling a little bit. Make sure that you’re squeezing your glutes, contracting all your muscles and even sucking in your abs so they can get a good workout as well.
In this pilates workout, we’re going to work our legs and glutes from many different angles. Some of the exercises are even going to be felt in your “lower” abs, which makes this workout even better! We have 8 exercises to go through, each one is done for 45 seconds on and 10 seconds off, only one time through. You’re welcome to repeat this workout if you really want to speed up the process of achieving lean sexy legs!
