Hi, I'm Amy Newman, fitness expert and creator of the Perfect 10 workout, and I'm going to show you how you can do a circuit workout in Pilates. That's putting a few moves together and having them flow nicely. We're going to do lunges and squats to start off with. Without using your arms, squat, then lift one leg. Squat. Lift the other leg. Squat. Lift a leg. Squat. Lift the other leg. Squat. Lift. Squat. Other leg. And when you squat, cross your arms, and when you lift your leg, lift your arms. Squat. Lift, working your arms as well. Exhale as you exert. Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. Then add doubles. Go down, then up. Up, and down. Down, then lift up. Up and then down. Down and lift up. Up and then down. Down and other side. Doing ten reps each, then get to the squats and do ten of them. Ten squats. Four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. Leg lifts. Try to hold it up, balancing. Squeeze your waist to lift your leg. Two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, and ten. Squats. One, back straight up and down, two. Shoulders down. Neck is long. Four, exhale, five, six, seven, eight, nine. Then the other leg. Bend down. Lift, two, three, four, balancing, five, exhale, six, exhale, seven, exhale, eight, nine, and ten. Then step down. And then step together. Then to the other side. Step together, then to the other side. Step together, then to the other side. And twist, twist, breathing, exhaling, and squeezing. Squeezing it in. Do ten of those, then reach up over your head. Then other side, reach. The other arm goes behind your back. You reach over your head. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Then to speed, to whatever music that you want to be playing, you can go slow, you can go fast. You can add more moves that are very similar, with your arms stretching out straight out, then cross in front, then elbows up, then bring it back up. Put it all together. Stretch it out. Cross in front. Elbow up, and up. I'm Amy Newman, thanks for joining me with this circuit workout of Pilates.
