Garnet Suidy explains how to sit and start this exercise. He shows and explains how to inhale to lift up and use your arms to inhale and exhale and then to sink back.
Garnet continues to explain in this 2 minute and 27 second video lesson the proper positions needed the whole time you execute this exercise alternating sides, keeping us balanced.
Another bonus with Garnet is he adds optional positioning to add to this exercise to strengthen your abs which every figure skater is in great need of. We need to be extremely strong in out core to execute the difficult jumps, spins, and even create more power in our basic skating.
Pilates with Garnet should be in your weekly routine to build strength flexibitity and great relaxation after a hard session on the ice.
