This Mat Pilates Routine Will Tighten Your Body From Head to Toe
Get a total-body workout with this full-length pilates class
Pilates is no joke when it comes to working every muscle group, big and small. Ask our cover girl Kate Hudson and plenty of crazy-fit devotees-it takes major flexibilty and strength, not to mention it does wonders for your waistline. It all starts with the core; every exercise requires inner stability. The best part about mat Pilates is that it needs no equipment. You can do it anywhere as long as you have a flat surface and some space to work. (See: The Pumped-Up Pilates Workout for a Sleek and Strong Body.)
Join Amy Perera in this Grokker Premium video to get a full-body workout, plus stretching to lengthen those muscles. Her 50-minute routine includes classic roll ups, hundreds, rolling like a ball, and plenty of butt- and hamstring-focused moves that will tighten your glutes and tone your thighs. Make it through the planks, butterfly stretches, and hip flexor work and you'll feel like a whole new person. Grab a mat and get going!
