Hand Weights Pilates

In Pilates classes we sometimes use LIGHT hand weights (1-2 lbs or 0.5kg-1kg will usually suffice). The use of light weights can add an additional scope to exercises such as extra muscle toning and increased effort from muscles in your core to support the arms, chest, shoulders, shoulder blades and back. Heavier hand weights however, can easily pull you out of alignment, create strain and shift the emphasis of the exercise from the core to the extremities.

If you don’t have hand weights you can use replacements like cans or jars from your kitchen or you can simply follow the class without them and enjoy it as it is - your body and gravity will provide all the challenge you need.
