Sculpted to the Core: Kate Hudson's Pilates Workout
Three to five times a week, do each exercise in order.
1. Roll Up
Lie faceup with arms extended overhead, palms facing ceiling. Extend legs with heels together and toes turned out. Exhale as you raise your arms over your chest. Pull your abs in, and roll up to seated. Continue until you're bent over your legs reaching your hands forward. Inhale, then exhale as you reverse the sequence to return to starting position.
2. Double Leg Stretch
Lie faceup with knees bent over your hips, heels together and toes pointed. Lift your shoulders and extend your arms on either side of your legs, palms facing each other. Inhale.
Exhale as you extend your legs in front of you and bring your arms overhead, palms facing legs. Return to starting position.
3. Rond de Jambe
Lie on your right side with legs extended and stacked on the floor, feet slightly in front of hips and heels together. Place your hands behind your head or extend right arm and rest head on it. Raise your left leg straight up. Then move it in a circular motion in front of you.
Then move it behind you, and then raise it straight up to starting position. Switch sides to complete set.
