Level 2 - Pace: Moderate
In Joseph Pilates book we only find 2 exercises of what we today call the “abdominal series”: the single leg bent, and the double leg bent. Romana, seeing that people needed to strengthen the core added three exercises: the single straight leg, the double straight leg and the criss-cross. It’s such a powerful and complete sequence.
If you are a beginner, rest the head down between the exercises and avoid lowering the legs too much.
