Katherine: Welcome to the ultimatepilatesworkouts.com, Pilates on Fifth video podcast. I am Katherine.
Kimberley: And I am Kimberley.
Katherine: Today’s exercise is froggies in the elbow scoop position. So, first let’s go over the elbow scoop position once again. So, sitting in back of the sit-bones, roll back to the elbows and it says if you are trying to get your lower rib, your bottom rib to touch the mat, so the energy of your back is pulling this way. It’s almost like you are pulling back with your arms. So, you are really getting the front line of the body is going this way, backlight of the body is going this way, nice strong connection between the ribs and the hips pulling the abdominals in and shall bring one knee up into tabletop position, oh one more thing before you will see other one, just look into your shoulders, Kim please don’t do that.
Press into the elbows you really have a nice strong shoulder girdles to support you as well. Okay, now you can lift one leg and then the other leg, good. Go ahead and stretch and begin and laterally rotate, laterally rotating is key, so we can do the exercise. If you don’t laterally rotate, so you shall bend your knees, bend the knees and open and exhale flex your feet, legs together, then the knees opened and I closed. Two more this way, inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale around one more time, inhale, reach your legs up and bend the knees and open and around and then we can reverse it and open legs point the toes as the knees bend in stress like straight up and press down along.
Now only that your legs dropped as low as you can keep the abdominal support intact and press downwards, let’s just do one more, so she flexes as she opens, bending the knees into a diamond shape, stretch the legs straight up and then lowering down and then rotate back to parallel and bend the knees and then drop one foot and the other foot to finish and that was froggies in the elbow scoop position.
