A Typical Reformer Exercise

“The Lunge” is a typical Pilates Reformer exercise which focuses on your thighs and hips. To begin, you just place one leg on the foot bar. Then, bend your other leg up and place your foot against the carriage’s shoulder pad. Push against the toe bar allowing your thigh to straighten out, and then hold that position for about fifteen seconds. Gradually relax, switch legs, and repeat. This is just an example of one of the many exercises which can be performed on the Pilates Reformer.  Each of them has a very specific purpose and targets a very specific group of muscles.

A Typical Cadillac Exercise

In Pilates, the Trapeze Table is also known as the Cadillac. Since we gave you an example of a typical exercise that can be performed on the Pilates Reformer, we’ll give you an example of a typical exercise that can be performed on this machine as well. If you want to target your hamstrings, a great way to do so is to begin by lying flat on your back on the table. Reach behind your head and grab hold of the vertical posts. Next place your feet into the straps, and then pull them away from your body. Slowly relax the tension, the repeat this action over and over again.
