6: Single Leg Stretch

This is the 6th exercise in the series. It aims to strengthen the entire trunk, lengthening quads and hamstrings, calves, glutes, and upper back muscles. It’s intended to be a reasonably fast exercise so it will continue to warm up the body. 

You will dynamically stretch and lengthen the legs, whilst stabilising the Pilates Box. One repetition includes both legs so aim to do about 5 or 6 reps.

Transition: Draw both legs in, keeping your head and shoulders lifted. Bring your hands to the sides of your shins, towards your ankles, ready for the Double Leg Stretch.
