15 minute Pilates for Desk Workers
We’ve all been moving less. This 15 minute physio-guided class has been designed to mobilise and strengthen your body. Do not attempt the below unless you have been signed off by your doctor or physiotherapist. Start with ten reps of each exercise and gradually build on these.
If you are a beginner we recommend starting with 10 reps of each strengthening exercise and working at them daily. If you are already doing regular exercise then you can increase the reps aiming to 15-20 reps of each exercise.
If you think you can handle more of a challenge then you can look to increase sets (aim to do 2 or 3 sets of each of the exercises).
Always remember that quality and technique is far more important than the numbers of reps achieved. If you can get through the exercises without batting an eye lid, then check your set up position, and slow down the pace of each repetition so that your muscles are put under tension and strain for a longer period of time.
Progression is key
To see an improvement when training, it is imperative to progress your exercises. This can be through:
- Increased repetitions of the exercises
- Increased frequency of your training
- Increased load to the exercises
