Pilates Swimming For Back Strength!

Most triathletes and swimmers are out of luck with all the gyms, pools and lakes closed to swimming these days due to the Shelter in Place mandate.

There will be other races. So let’s not dwell on the things that are out of our hands. Why not work on strengthening and lengthening your body with pilates workout? This is an exercise from pilates matwork called “Swimming”.

It works your back, shoulders and butt all at the same time! Can you keep your hands and feet elevated off the ground the whole time? Can you maintain the tempo @ironptmom is keeping while inhaling x 5 sec and exhaling for sec? Give it a try and let us know how you do!

Perhaps next time, we can have her do this in her swimsuit while hosing her down with some water eh?
