Mastering Mid Back

The Pilates Mid Back series is a brilliant Reformer Bed exercise that we teach in our classes.

This exercise requires good co-ordination because it combines a curl-up, shoulder movements, and in the more challenging progressions, leg reaches. This combination of movements will help you to strengthen and tone your tummy & shoulder muscles. It will also cause you to become more aware of your neutral spine position and how to flatten your abdomen, which are both key Pilates techniques.

Top Tips

– Keep your knees over hips in the table-top position.

– Draw your belly button in throughout, do not allow your abdomen to dome.

– Keep your lower back pressed to the floor, not allowing it to arch as you move.

– Tuck in your chin keeping the back of the neck long.
