15 Minute Mat Pilates Abs Workout for a Flat Tummy 💖

15 Minute Mat Pilates Abs Workout for a Flat Tummy 💖


hi guys it’s Bailey and today we’re
going to do some of my favorite mat Pilates ABS exercises let’s get started
lying down on our mat alright let’s get started lying down on
our back I just want you to take your hands and place them on your hip bones
first we’re going to start coming through our imprint and our neutral so
take a deep breath in and as you exhale think of pulling your belly button to
your spine and then you’re going to flatten that back into the mat inhale
it’s your neutral spine where the natural curves are present and then
exhale really engaging through those abdominals inhale and exhale using your
breath really starting to get those deep abs engaged inhale and exhale good we’ll
do a few of these at our own pace inhale and then as you exhale flattening that
back inhale exhale really draw your navel to your spine tensing your abs
moving through these at your own pace you should start to feel those
abdominals engaging just like this good last one inhale and exhale leaving our
spine and more of an imprint bring the arms by your side lifting one leg at a
time into tabletop and we’ll just start lengthening one leg long and then
pulling it in and then the opposite leg so you want to make sure that your knees
are staying over your hips so that we keep the work in the low abdominal good
and then the lower that you extend your legs the more challenging it’s gonna be
for those abdominal this one starts to work our low ABS and our obliques and if you feel good here, bring your
hands behind your head here we go starting to make it a little bit harder
for those six-pack muscles ready you should start to feel your lower
abdominals switching on and you want to make sure that your hips aren’t rocking
from side to side our obliques are really helping us here good if you have
any tension in your neck just put it back down because we want to keep the
work in our abs two more good last one now we’re going
to extend the legs up to the ceiling grabbing ahold of one leg lengthening
the other one coming into some scissors one lower than the other therefore this
one a soft Bend is okay we just really want to focus on that switch switch and
you really feel the ABS working good we have five four three two good last when
they’ll bend the knees for a moment take your hands back behind your head
repeating that series but working our obliques so this time we come into some
more bicycles we twist off the knee to elbow and twist good now you can either
stay here or we lengthen those legs scissor and twist good remember this version is totally
okay ten more seconds good five four three two and one give yourself a little
hug and then we’re bringing our legs into a diamond shape so your feet are
together your knees are apart and behind the head we’re gonna start working on up
our ABS so those six-pack muscles inhale exhale now this one’s really good
because it really targets those upper abs and our lower abs really have to
work to maintain that diamond shape with the leg this one is so great at building
that 2-pack it’s a little bit more easy to achieve than a six-pack good if you can let’s take those hands
together and then we’re just going to lift and lower and lower good trying to
get through reach those fingertips a little bit further
every time I really try to lift and hold so we tense the AB and then we lower
down good one more now bring the hands behind
your head little pulses four times eight really use that breath seven six five
four three two one hold reach those fingers get a little bit higher four
five four three two and one beautiful bring your arms by your side
and we’re gonna keep the diamond shape with our legs but we’re just working our
low abs so we’re gonna try to pierce our toes to the ceiling and then bring them
down so it’s a very little lift your tailbone will just curl off the mat and
then lower down so you should really feel those low abs and right around her
belly button each time you lift think exhale breathe get those abs engaged if
you feel a little bit stronger top your toes down to the mat in the diamond
shape and then exhale it up and breathe good two more last one now from here
keeping that diamond-shaped hands behind the head take part 1 & 2 together we top
the sea tail and then we exhale curl knees to elbow good four more three two good last one
hold it squeeze five four three two and one
good lower down windshield wiper your legs from side to side just to release
those abdominals a little and then let’s just come up so that we’re resting on
our forearms here from here let’s get into those obliques and work our way to
I’d lift one leg at a time up into tabletop we’re going to just rotate over
on our head so that we still feel those top abs engaged through Center and then
to the other side so you are lifting the hip off the mat through Center if you can bring your legs to the side
lengthen them bring them back in through Center now this really makes
you use those sideline muscles good two more last one bringing it
through Center lower those feet down and roll yourself back onto the mat
beautiful now that we’ve warmed up our obliques we’re gonna finish with my
favorite ab move from here we’re going to take our feet to hip distance and we’re
going to do one crunch so just our left arm we’re going to do one crunch reach
our hand past our hip and then do one toss the opposite side so one working
the six-pack and then one working the obliques now if you can lift those legs
to tabletop and keep going inhale exhale adding on again we’re going to lengthen
the opposite leg so as we reach past the hip then we come back through Center and
then we scissor so as we reach across we bicycle both legs really twisting this
will get all of the muscles and our upper abs our lower abs or oblique good
three more last one and then come right through
Center to the other side do love you with our feet on the mat we reach our
this time our right arm past our hips and then across our bodies twist it reach really past the hip and then twist another thing it’s not about how high you
can lift your upper body it’s about how flat you can keep your abdominal
wall because otherwise we tend to – let’s lift our legs to tabletop while I talk
to you- otherwise we tend to use that momentum
instead of our actual ab strength and good let’s lengthen the opposite leg
opposite arm and then as we twist we bicycle this one’s definitely a brain
workout and with good working every muscle in our
abdominals good just two more good last one take one in each direction and give yourself a little bit of a massage Circle your knees around giving that
lower back a bit of a break feet come down and then just really take a nice
stretch through those abdominals reach your arms up overhead legs long deep
breath in and exhale great job you guys I hope you enjoyed
