I’m sharing a new lower-body exercise using two of my favorite tools: a Pilates ball and a resistance band loop.
Hi friends! How is the week? The kids were at morning camps and I was teaching in the morning, and hitting the pool with them in the afternoon. I can’t believe we have less than a month of summer left and we’ll live.
For today’s post, I have a whole new exercise for you! For this, I use two of my favorite tools: a Pilates ball and a resistance band loop. If you don’t have a ball, don’t worry. Alternatively, you can use a small pillow. I usually *borrow* a play ball from the kids’ playroom and you can also find it in the kids department at Target and Walgreens. The resistance band loop is one of my favorite choices for travel exercise equipment. It is very light and compact and can make lower body exercises more challenging. If you don’t have a loop, you can do the exercise without it and still feel the burn. 😉

Some tips for this exercise:
When using the loop strap, make sure it is not over your joints, such as your knees, ankles or elbows. It should always be a few inches above or below any joints.
– The inner thighs, pelvic floor, and deep core muscles are the BFFs. Anytime you use the court or a Pilates ball to target your inner thighs, consider pulling and engaging your transverse abdominal and pelvic floor muscles. Exhale when exercising.
Feel free to drop your band or ball if you need to! Once you reach the point of fatigue, you will continue to feel challenged without it.
