The Friendly Swede Pilates Ring
Below we have listed some of the ways you can use your Pilates Ring. See this as inspiration and adapt the exercises after your needs and abilities. The possibilities don't stop here!
Lie on the ground with your head facing the floor. Put the ring between your legs, above your ankles and your hands under your forehead. Make sure you have a 90 degrees angle at your knees and feet. Now move your feet closer to the ceiling by lifting your knees. Then lower the knees again. Do three loops of 10 reps.
Hold your arms straight with your hands around the padded foam handles. Press the handles inwards and hold for a few seconds before returning to start position. Do three loops of 10 reps. (TIPS: try to vary the speed between the loops) Do the same exercise but with your arms bent so that they create a straight line parallel with the floor.
STANDING LEG PRESS
Stand on the floor with your knees slightly bent and your abs engaged. Put the ring around your legs, above your ankles. Put the weight on one leg and press the other leg outward against the circle. Repeat a few times at varying speeds.
LYING RING PASS
Lie on the floor on your back. Hold the padded handles and move the ring over your head with the arms straight. Lift your upper body and your legs and at the same time move the ring from your hands to your legs. Place the ring just above your ankles. Go down towards the floor again keeping the ring between your legs. Reverse; grabbing the ring from between your legs and taking it back overhead.
