March MATness Day 24: The Leg Pulls

Leg Pull and Leg Pull Front are great, total body exercises that require a lot of strength before clients can master them in their original form.  For this reason, there have been many, many variations, modifications, and regressions thought up and practiced across the Pilates landscape over the years.

If your clients are ready to go for the original movement in all its glory, here’s one cue for them that will help with both versions: remember the pelvis.  A slight posterior tilt and a mindfulness of wrapping the sit bones towards one another creates a stability and levity to the body that helps to shift the focus of exercise from the sheer difficulty of holding one’s body in a plank, to the intention of creating length from the crown of the head to the tips of the toes.
