This is my full body pilates inspired workout you can do at home. :)
I think that pilates workouts are great! They make your core stronger core, make you more flexible, and correct your posture.
Pilates workouts usually provide low to moderate resistance so you won’t feel like you’ve worked yourself to exhaustion. I love this type of resistance training as it also helps me get lean and toned without making me bulky.
Best thing? You can do it at home with no shoes on ;)

HOW TO COMPLETE THE CIRCUIT
- Do each exercise for 60 seconds, without rest (don’t forget to do both sides if it’s a one sided exercise).
- Complete 2-3 rounds.
Hope you liked this workout!

Hi Rachael I was wondering if Pilates toning workouts are better for slimmer looking muscles than ab and butt only not thigh workouts from youtubers like Mary Brain or Chloe Ting.
I am short mesomorph that builds muscle super easily.
It depends on the type of Pilates. Some workouts do include lots of squats and lunges which build muscle in your quads and can make your legs bigger and more muscly. This depends on your teacher and the style of pilates that they teach. Again, I would try a few different teachers and classes to find one that suits you best. If you are still having issues with reformer pilates, I would try regular floor-based pilates instead. :)
I hope this helps. xx
Hi Rachael, what weight for dumbbells do you use? Also, as a mesomorph, can I do this same exercise 3x a week, or do you suggest I switch it up? Thank you :)
1- 2 kg dumbbells are okay to use. :)
Feel free to do it 3 times a week if you’d like to! :)
