20 minute Pilates workout to strengthen your core

Healthista have teamed up with David Kingsbury, founder of boutique gym OPUS to create a 3-part series of 20-minute Pilates workouts for strength, posture and tone. Today’s finale is core training 

If you are trying to develop strength  in your training and looking to improve balance, posture and flexibility all at the same time, Pilates is a low impact workout that could be missing in your fitness programme. Founder of London gym, OPUS, David Kingsbury has put together three selective workouts that don’t require equipment and can be done at home.

CORE WORKOUT

Plates by nature is a great form of exercise to strengthen your core muscles, this is because many of the exercises focus on the deeper, stability muscles in addition to the more superficial layers which we actually see on the outside. In this 20-minute workout, we will go through a balanced group of exercises that place emphasis on pelvic stability, deep muscle activation and also endurance, which is often the best recipe for success.
