Pilates Roll-Up

Strengthen your core and tone your deep ab muscles with this Pilates move.

-Pilates Roll-Up: Sit up tall with your knees bent, your legs-hip width apart, and hold your thighs. Your elbows stay wide. Roll down toward the mat, curl your pelvis under, and press your lower back into the floor. When your arms are almost straight, hold for 3 breaths. With every exhale, deepen the curl in your abs then roll back up to sitting. Repeat 3 times. This move works your transverse abdominals or the deepest layer of abs.
