Learn more than the basics about the Russian Splits with Jay Grimes. When done properly, this Pilates exercise creates deep strength in the hips and glutes while connecting the entire body. Jay’s tips will help you understand how to get that connection, along with variations that make it more challenging. Don’t miss the stretch with the bar down, it’s a powerful flexibility move but even more so for your control. Our thanks to Strong Body Pilates in Toluca Lake, CA. Visit Jay at Vintage Pilates.
