EDITOR'S NOTE: Diet.com is thrilled to introduce our members to our newest expert blogger - Pilates instructor Hanneke Antonelli! Hanneke strives to give her own students a fresh and wonderful experience of the Pilates method, and is excited to share her knowledge with Diet.com's terrific members. You'll also be seeing her in upcoming Diet.com Videos!

Sarah Dussault and I recently did a video on the 100's and so I thought I would give you a little more color on it!

Before continuing, first take a look at this clip.

When doing the 100's remember to breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth (as if you're going to blow out a candle).

Avoid coming up too far off the ground with your head, neck & shoulders and remember to keep your abs pulled in and up. As soon as you see your rectus abdominis (6 pack muscle) puffing/popping out, you've come up too high or you're too fatigued, return to start position and begin again.

You can always keep your legs in table top or flat on the mat if it bothers your lower back. If your neck bothers you put one hand behind the head and switch off your hands half way through.

REMEMBER: "A few well-designed movements, properly performed in a balanced sequence, are worth hours of doing sloppy calisthenics or forced contortion." - Jospeh Pilates

SPOT the form Fault in my pic below? My chin is too jammed and neck too tense. A hand behind the head would help!

Holding a position is a particular way for a period of time can be straining to your body, for which you need to know the limits of your body. These positions do help a lot, but try to not fatigue yourself while doing so and https://www.australian-writings.org/ also shares some of those positions and provides you with some good articles that show you the importance of these exercises. The Australian writing is the best place to get written material for anything.
