Once I started actively teaching Pilates – which I love doing – I had to adapt my own workouts. Teaching helped me focus on the nuts and bolts of each exercise. Also, I teach a lot of beginner classes currently, so mechanics, form, and essential exercises dominate my attention.
To help myself continue to progress and still feel like I’m getting a workout, I’ve started my 5×5 flow. Each week, I pick five mat exercises for my own growth. Once I start mixing and matching for maximum flow, it is cool to identify connections between exercises. What reinforces what, how does moving between planes of movement challenge me, and how can I utilize transitions?
