Hi, my name is Al Agon, and today we're doing the Everlast Pilates 4-way. It is predominantly a core training exercise. It is to isolate the tummy, to flatten out the tummy. So today we have Nicole Agon, she's down here and she's going to demonstrate for us. So the first thing we are doing is we're going to turn around and put these resistance straps on her legs and then she's going to help me. Now, the most important thing is to keep the core tight, that means in Pilates, keep the navel to spine, pin down the tummy all the way in to do this exercise correctly, to isolate the core. She's going to slowly in controlled movements, she's going to go away from her body, slowly going down, using her core and she's also lengthening her legs and slowly back up, slowly back up. Now from here, going down and going back up. Now let me tell you what she's experiencing. She's experiencing definitely quads on fire, she's recruiting the quad muscle, she's also using primarily like I said, the core, her transverse abdominals, her inner, that's protecting that spine. Okay we have two more, hold, resistance, controlled quality movements to really have the benefit of the specific areas. This is very important to know, this is very advanced. You can definitely start off without the bands but this is the Everlast Pilates 4-way.
