How to adjust the exercises if don't have a Pilates Ball
If you don't have Pilates ball, that's no big deal – here are variations of the exercises you can do instead!
Rotation & Wall Squat
- The Rotation can be done without a ball in the same way.
- Instead of a wall squat (with the ball we're moving up and down) you can just hold it low.
- Instead of pulses, hold the wall squat and lift one heel at a time.
Standing Push Up at the Wall & Standing Crunch
- Instead of rolling the ball along the wall, you can simply slide along the wall with your hand.
- The crunch works just as well without the ball.
Curtsy Squat, Side Leg Lift, Squeeze/Kick back
- You don't need the ball here – however, if you'd like to have some resistance, roll up one big towel (or two small ones) and place it behind your knee.
- Instead of squeezing, pulse back, little kicks.
- Same movement with or without the Pilates ball.
- The exercises are very close, whether you're using a ball or not.
- 1. Exercise (Bridge lifts, foot at the wall): You can keep your entire foot at the wall or rise onto your toes; the focus is on the leg with the grounded foot.
- 2. Exercise (extend and bend the lifted leg): Slide the foot along the wall or draw the knee to your upper body and extend to tap the wall.
- 3. Exercise (extend and lift, bend and lower): Just like the second exercises, but this time we add the hips.
Stretch: Reverse Pigeon
- Place your foot the wall (option to rise onto your toes), ground the foot or hug the knee in.
