The standing arm weights are an incredible strengthening workout that sculpts the entire body, not just the arms. By illuminating the ways it likes to cheat, Brett will help you understand how to engage your body in order to free your arms. It’s a lesson we learn over and over again in Pilates and brings us back to the goal of the method—total control of mind and body which thereby frees the spirit.

    Just finished this video, and my heart is pumping and I am sweating! Thank you Brett, for bringing this detailed Arm Weights series to pilatesology! Loved it and will use it my classes/ sessions, often! PS: the sound effects for “zipping” were very helpful!!

    Lovely! Perfect! I have terrible ‘computer shoulders’ at the moment and so did this workout without weights – and even that was great. I’ll be repeating it a couple of times a week, I’m thinking. Should be compulsory for every office worker at lunchtime…

    We don’t see much of this work and it is really a pity. I reckon much can be achieved using the series to simulate the benefits of having the big apparatus.

    Mr Howard bring us more of this work. Great material.
