Happy Friday! What says TGIF more than a little Pilates Barre Burner routine? 🙂 This is a quick (six minute) routine that focuses specifically on the hip adductors – also known as those troublesome inner thighs. Most people want their inner thighs to look good, but did you also know that the hip adductor muscles play a crucial role in stabilizing the low back, pelvis, hips and knees? I have found that many of my physical therapy patients with low back pain, pelvic instability, hip problems and patellar tracking problems, also have inner thigh weakness and unbalanced hips. This routine not only will help tone your lower body, it can also help improve the health of your lower extremities and joints!
As always, please check with your physician before starting a new exercise routine. If you have any knee pain with this routine, please do a smaller motion. You want your movement to be pain free!
