Pilates core exercises that work your glutes too for a whole body approach to movement

When you’re looking for Pilates core exercises that also work your glutes, anything that uses the hands and knees position is going to be a winner. The video below gives you four versions and each one gets your core and glutes in a slightly different way.

Why is this such a great whole body choice? I’m glad you asked!

You’ve got the benefits of loading your hands, wrists, arms and shoulders (more on wrists in a moment). You get to work your core awareness, breathing and response to the weight of your legs. And then you get the hip work from lifting your legs, and every time you change HOW you lift your legs, you get another angle on the muscles involved. Bonus!

If your wrists are sensitive, you can modify the series below by supporting yourself on your forearms. Line upΒ  your elbows with your shoulders, make fists with your hands and actively press your forearms into the ground. Think of lifting your chest and underarms away from the floor so you get the upper body boost of the position.
