Pilates Hundred Instructions
1. Lie on your back with your knees bent and your legs parallel to the floor, lift your shoulders off the mat and extend your arms and legs.
2. Inhale for a count of 5, then exhale for a count of 5 while simultaneously pumping your arms up and down.
3. Repeat 10 times for a count of 100.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Engage your core and back muscles and keep your lower back pressed against the floor. Relax your head, neck, and shoulders, extend your arms to the front, keeping them a few inches off the floor, and keep your legs at a 45-degree angle above the floor, or as low as you can without peeling up the lower back off the mat. Coordinate your breath with the up and down movement of the arms.
