New Year, New Pilates, New You!

Think there’s nothing more to having a sexy, sculpted physique than crunching and squatting until your big and strong? Think again.

Erika Bloom’s new workout is a modernized approach to Pilates that works your deep, intrinsic muscles (the ones you didn’t even know you had) to align, tone, and reshape your figure. This fresh take on Pilates gives you the tools to elongate and strengthen your musculature for perfect posture and a total body transformation like you’ve never imagined.

Cuckoo Clock

Prep: Lie on your back. Find a neutral spine, anchoring the back of your pelvis while maintaining the forward curve of your low back. Wrap your low belly around like a corset so that you draw your belly button to your spine and your spine to your belly button.

Exercise: Bring your legs into chair position. Extend one leg out to 45 degrees. Make six small circles each direction. Draw the leg back into chair position. Repeat with the opposite leg.

Works: Transversus abdominis, obliques, pelvic floor, and multifidi

Benefits: Flat belly, narrow and defined waist, great posture, and longer, narrower hips and torso.

Pendulum

Prep: Stand on your left leg with your arms out to the side. Energize your limbs as though you are working out in custard and have to push against the resistance.

Exercise: Bend your left leg deeply into a single-leg squat. Now reach the right leg up to the back and lift it high. Bring it back in, then through and up to a front knee lift. Repeat 10 times standing on the left leg, moving the right leg from back extension to front knee lift. Perform 10 reps on the other leg.

Works: Glutes, quads, hamstrings, abductors, adductors, triceps, deltoids, and core muscles.

Benefits: High, round rear; slimmer, toned thighs; narrower hips; no more inner thigh jiggle; slimmer, toned upper arms; flatter belly; and a narrower waist

Side Plank Twist

Prep: Lie on your right side with your knees bent so you make one long line with your body from your head to your knees. Bring your right elbow under your right shoulder so your upper torso is lifted and your right forearm is pressed into the mat.

Exercise: Press into your right forearm to lift your hips off the mat. Reach the left arm overhead. Feed it under your torso to lead you into a twist toward the mat. Reach the arm back out and up to come back center. Lower your hips to complete the rep. Perform 10 reps on each side. Tip: Think of widening your shoulder blades, narrowing your hips, and wrapping your waist long as you do the exercise.

Works: Serratus, obliques, abductors, transversus abdominis

Benefits: Narrower, longer waist and slimmer hips

Not Your Average Push-Up

Prep: Start on your hands and knees. Bring one leg straight behind you, lifted to hip height.

Exercise: Bend elbows to your sides as you shift the chest forward and reach the elbows back toward your hips. Your arms should remain close to your sides, ...
