Don't give up just because of a number.

There are so many pieces to the puzzle in a Pilates workout. So much more than just a reformer class or a mat class. This baby chair may look easy but it requires a crazy amount of core and full body strength! This is also why we do arm circles everywhere... so you can do it at a foundational level, a core level,  and an advanced level!

Working the baby chair with the shave a head series! Looks easy, but it's crazy hard!

Lift within the reach.  If we could just use an iron, it would be so much easier.  I think I'd take squirrel over this and the 2x4 any day. Although, this and the 2x4 are necessary.

I love how the method works across all the apparatus! This is part of the rowing series with boxing added at the end. Within this series on the chair, so many variations - chair back, chair up, chair back and up! This one is a variation moving the chair forward and back and really challenges the abs and arms. This is in my home studio with the @pilates_designs baby chair.

This is roll down on the baby chair - builds strength and stretches the back! It feels really great after a late night session of breaking it down to Ja Rule radio with my girlfriends.  I've been inspired by @thepilatesroom_chi for this exercise!

Chest Expansion on the Baby Chair  Chest Expansion is intended to do just that- expand (or open) your chest. It stretches your #chest while #strengthening your upper #back.
