    What is a Pilates Ring?

    Our Pilates Halo Magic Circle is a relatively new fitness tool that has recently appeared on the market, and it has taken the market by the storm. What makes the Pilates ring stay out in the sea of other fitness tools is its versatility; the Pilates ring helps challenge multiple areas of the body by providing light resistance in the areas where that is needed.

     

    How to use the Pilates Ring?

    As previously mentioned, the Pilates Ring is a versatile tool, and it can be used in many different ways. Below is a quick (but effective) Pilates workout that can be done by using the Pilates Ring. We also provide you with beginner friendly video tutorials to get you started.

     

    Inner Thigh Crunch

    Sit on the floor with your knees bent in front of you. Make sure your spine is straight, and make sure your hands are not touching the floor (they should be in front of your face). Place the ring between your inner thighs. Press the ring with your legs, hold for two seconds and then release. Do this exercise for a full minute.

    This exercise will strengthen the muscles of your inner thighs, strengthening the muscles of your core since you are not using hands to stay in the upright position. 

     

    Ab Pumps

    Sit on the floor and bend your knees in front of you. Lay on the floor, take the Pilates ring into your hands. Keeping your arm straightened at all times, lift your torso from the floor and slowly bring it back down. Make sure your core is doing the lifting, do not yank your body up by using your arms. Do this exercise for a full minute.

    Ab pumps are going to engage and strengthen your lower abs – you should feel the burn in this area while you are doing the exercise. 

     

     

    Glute Bridges

    Lay face up on the ground with your arms to the side, knees bent, and heels on the ground. Place the Pilates ring between your knees. Flex the muscles in your core and glute while lifting your hips off the ground until knees, hips, and shoulders are aligned. Repeat this movement for 60 seconds.

    Glute bridges are going to engage and strengthen many muscle groups: your core, your glute, and your thigh muscles.

     

    Back Lifts

    Lay on your stomach and straighten your arms in front of you while holding the Pilates ring with both of your hands. Lift your chest towards the ceiling while keeping your arms straight, and then lower it back down. Repeat this exercise for 60 seconds.

    Back lifts are going to strengthen the muscles of your lower back and engage your triceps muscles.
