JUMPING HORIZONTALLY

April 15, 2018

The Jump Board is a padded surface where you place your feet flat, instead of using the foot bar on the reformer. It is also a fun way to incorporate cardiovascular effort into your Pilates routine while correcting your posture.

 

The Jump Board provides a great and non-weight bearing way to increase heart rate and burn some serious calories. The lesson is done with different movement combinations that not only challenge you physically, but also will make you think where your feet and legs are in space. The mind and body need to work together, as in a typical Pilates session, but the tempo is quicker and your coordination is put to the test. Jump Board Pilates exercises will ensure not only an increased heart rate, but also full body strengthening of the abdominals, feet, ankles, legs and gluteus.

 

The Jump Board workout is safe, and is much easier on the joints than jumping standing as there is no jarring of the knee joints because you are suspended horizontally with spring resistance rather than your whole body weight.
