Hi, I'm Amy Newman, fitness expert, creator of the Perfect 10 workout, and we're going to learn how to get rid of back fat with Pilates workouts. Let's start off on our side. Either side you can start off on. Slide down onto your lower arm, other hand in front near your chest, and what we're going to do is use our leg and lift it up by using our side, and down. Up and down. Squeeze your back to lift it up. Squeeze, lift up. Squeeze then add an arm. Stretch. Lift together. Crunch it. Inhale. Exhale. If you want to use your upper body to make it a little bit tougher, that'll also help that lower back, getting that area that we don't like. Hand behind the head. Bring the knee in. Stretch it out. Crunch it in. Exhale. Stretch it out. Crunch it in. Exhale. Stretch it out. Crunch it in. Bring both knees together, hands behind your head. Turn your torso towards the ceiling. Lay your head back in your hands. Neck is long. Chin is away from your chest. And you breathe, doing little crunches. Add an elbow to the crunch. Bring it behind your back. Do about twenty of the first kind, twenty of these, then go from the elbows to tapping behind your back, crunching. Keep your hips stacked on top of each other. You don't want to be laying on your back; you want your hips straight up and down. Tapping behind your back, exhaling, and squeezing. Then add the back tap, then over your head tap. Behind your back tap, over your head tap. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale through the mouth and nose. Inhale through the nose. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. Inhale, and then you can add a double. Double, then tap, stretch, stretch. Tap, crunch, crunch. Tap, tap. I'm Amy Newman. Thanks for joining me as we work on the lower back muscles with Pilates.
