    Hi, quick question, why does my left calf muscle pull when im performing the rollup or roll down, since we are told to keep the legs and feet together and slide them forwards?

    thanks

      Hi SalPilates,
      Gosh I don’t know why that would be happening. It’s really common for calf and foot muscles to cramp in Pilates if you’re dehydrated or if tension just goes to that area. So perhaps that’s the answer–unnecessary tension or need for a little extra water?

    This video is awesome for revisiting The Basic 7 Pilates Mat exercises. The cuing is spot on and takes you inside of your body so you can feel every muscle that should be working! Alisa explains every part of the exercises clearly, so you never doubt that you are doing it correctly!
