Leg Pull Back

– #pilates4life2020: #29 of 31 exercises



What’s it good for?


🌟 You could think of this exercise as a downward facing Bridge. It’s a good example of a “full body integration” exercise. ⁠
🌟 Good performance requires strength and coordination of the shoulder blades, glutes, hamstrings and calf muscles; the quadriceps, abdominals and hip flexors.⁠





A Quick Guide to Leg Pull Back

💡 Imagine that the arms, trunk and supportt leg form a bridge that remains solid as the other legs lifts.⁠
💡 Don’t drop your pelvis down as he leg lifts…⁠
There are two versions of this exercise: one in which the whole body forms a completely straight line from shoulder to ankle! In this version the leg lift is considerably more of a challenge! An easier version is to have a slight bend in the hips (not lower back). this will allow you to lift the leg higher. ⁠
