The Power of Pilates

FOCUS: CORE Strengthening your abdominals and hip muscles will support your lower back as your belly grows. This move will keep your hip area mobile too.
1. Single Leg Circles
Lie flat with your knees bent and feet flat, placing your hands on your hipbones. Draw in your abs, then raise your right leg 90 degrees with your knee slightly bent [shown]. Keeping hips still, draw grapefruit-size circles with your right toe as you cross your leg to the left, down, to the right, and back to starting position. Repeat 5 times; change directions for another 5 reps. Switch legs and repeat the entire sequence.
