I'm going to completely let go a roll in a way. Good job hugging your knees. Good. We're going to sit up for seal. We're going to clap two, three. And I want you to brace yourself a little bit more with your stomach. Create more of a seeker, a little bit more space between your thighs and your belly button.

And tighten those inner thighs. Good. It's your last one. Try to let go. Cross your ankles. Roll up to a standing position. Excellent.

Turn around and let's do two sets of five pushups. Starting with your arms up to the ceiling. Good and rolling off an imaginary wall. Good region. Walk out in four paces without moving the hips. Too much.

I want you to just take exhale for me and now inhale, push away the earth as you lift in and up and relax. That was a great Matt. Good job. All right, let's get the spine corrector.

I want to have a little fun there. Let's see. Yes, this way. Does that look pretty centered? All right. Okay Madame, come on over here and I want you to sit down right here. So we do tread a little ending with our spine corrector. So sit up a little bit higher now. Good.

Put One foot on top of this a little bit more forward. Good. And as you rolled back, this leg is going to push in and this leg is going to come with you up to the ceiling. Good. Rolling back and reaching that leg up to the ceiling. Good. And then slide back until both shoulder blades are on the mat and the arms feel long and straight. Bend your knees into your chest. Good. I feel like you need to go back a little bit more. Does that feel okay? Yeah.

Okay. All right. So I don't need my shoes anymore to spot you on the reformers and slide those off and want you to reach your legs up and open and we're going to circle down. And this is my favorite. Keep pulling into your waist and keeps direction. Those thighs wonderful and up and open and reach you. You could probably open a little wider, be a little more freer with it.

That's it. And then squeeze. Now two more on your own. Reaching Long Gore. Just one more keeping me center. Good. Reverse, and I'll help you with that. Reverse too. Nice around God and reaching out all round up. Three God and two more.

Nice and long. Last one. We're squeezing and work in the legs and bend the knees in for a moment. Good. And you can hug your knees if your arms are tired or you can just leave them there. Let's go into, I'm walking legs up. Good. Maybe hug the barrel a teeny bit into you. Good and long legs. Really keeping your legs center. Let's do an eight count walk. Two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight and up to four. Five, six, seven, eight.

Make sure you're trying to get as low as you can. Keep your waistband still glued to that barrel so those thighs are getting their own stretch without me. And two more. Down to three. Little more seat. Little more length. There you go. Up. Good. Starting from the seat last time down. Seat working. There we go. Six, seven, eight and up. Two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Good. Bend the knees in. Nice. Now we'll go into scissors.

So we're going to try to keep your left leg here and really reached out and long reach retreats. Sure to go all the way down. But now make sure it goes down the middle and then switch. And they can switch in. The air is fine too, but as you go down, it likes to go out, right? So keep that bottom working and down. Good and switching. Waste pulled and good work in the outer thigh there and bottom.

And one more set. Reaching both legs, reaching for the ceiling. Good. And bend the knees and we'll do bicycle. And not all of these are great preps for short. The hands underneath when you're doing your shoulder bridge bicycle. And so, so imagine that your hands are underneath and you don't want your bottom to be so heavy. So your bottom's always trying to stay almost up off that barrel. Okay, so legs up and let's reach your right leg towards me as you bend that left knee for our bicycle. Good. I'm just holding you here cause I love this structure.

This needs coming in as much as you can. This one's reaching out. Then start bending the right knee, reaching for that barrel than the right. And as this one goes in, good and down the middle with this left leg. There Ya go. Yes. And then bend that left knee as this one. And now just ride your bike.

Really a big wheel that sit going down the middle. Try to you. I think you can each time grab that Merrill. That's what I want you to do. That's it. That's your goal. Cause when you're free, let's reverse it. Now when you're, I'm doing it on your, your goal is to touch the floor. So you're really working at here. One knees deep into your chest. It's amazing how we can do it here.

But then when we'd take it away, it's not so easy. Last one and that's it. Bend the knees in. Good. All right. Now my favorite, not that all of them aren't my favorite, but rolling in and out. So squeeze, hug that mid line. Good heels are going to stay close to your bottom. And let's start with just the knees going towards your right ear and then towards your left ear and then towards your right shoulder and then towards your left shoulder and then over your right hip. Always hugging that way, span through to the barrel. Good.

Now let's start right to your nose and let's circle the knees to your right ear. To your right shoulder goes far over your right hip as you can circle over as far over your left hip, left shoulder, ear and center. Reverse. Give me all you got. How far over stack up those hips. There we go. Get those knees stacked as you go around. Don't let one slide more than the other. Reach the top knee over. [inaudible].

There you go. Scooping it in and reverse reaching over to the ocean pole in and around, scooping it in. Good and enough. Nice. Now go ahead and put your hands. Actually don't do that cause we're going to do leg circles onto head. How's that sound? Okay, we're going to go ahead and grab on to those. Uh, [inaudible]. Uh, now I changed my mind. So, right, we do want you to curl up your bottom and you're going to push away the yes.

Good. And because I love very importantly is the rest position after the rolling in and out, which is technically an exercise so we shouldn't throw in very much needed exercise. Right? So how'd your knees into your chest? Good. And I want you to come and do grasshopper. So stand up and then we'll come down this way. We'll do grasshopper swimming.

Good. So we're going to place our hands armed either cross, but the elbow will be on the mat. Forearms on the Mat. Good. And your forehead. That's it. Maybe a little tighter with the elbows towards the barrel. There we go. Scoop. And in here we're going to press those hips together. Hug me and let's lift those legs almost perpendicular to the ceiling.

Really reaching it up. Then pull them into your seat. Beautiful. Extend Long and eight beats. Two three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Two more times up we go. Keep lengthening extended long and eight by six 71 more time. Scoop it in from here. Lifting pool and into your seat long, long, long.

And one, two, three, four by six, seven, eight grade shop. Come back a little bit for rocking. Good. So you're gonna bring your legs back. Good. Really push your feet into your hands. Push the pelvis into the barrel and let's go for a rock to, let's do a little eight count here. Three. How's that positioning feel for you?

Good. Really lifting those guys up. Lift in the chest. One more good and kind of meltdown for a moment. Good. And now I want you to extend the arms and legs and I want to see the triathletes swim here. Okay. So we're going to lift up everything right arm and the left leg higher. Head up out of the water and it's inhale, two, three, four, five. Exhale, two, three, four, five. Higher to the ceiling. Arms higher head, high and legs.

Fire and melt down. Very nice. Good. Go ahead and bring your knees actually into the barrel, bending them in and then just round over the barrel and just stretch. Reaching over. Yeah, just stretch. All right. And I want you to flip back on over and we're going to lie back down like we did originally for your leg circles onto your head and then we'll swing down into our teaser and hip circles.

So leg circles onto head. We're going to extend the legs up to the ceiling. Perfect. Good. We're going to start with an open leg circle, reaching down, simultaneously, lifting. Then the arms go straight up. Good. And as a circle back, you scoop the legs back up. Perfect. And Big circle around. Down in. That's it. Arms lift and circle. Legs go straight up to any one more.

Open around and lifting up. Arms lift good. And the legs go right up. Straight up to the ceiling. We're going to do the reverse. The legs go straight down. Good arm circle back and they come straight up at the legs. Gorgeous and like straight down. There you go. Arms Big circle. Good.

Circle the legs back up. Nice. One more time. One and arms and big circle with the legs. Good. And now we're going to bend the knees for a second and then we're going to extend the legs up. Good. And you need to gain some ground as we go up for the teasers. You're going to swing those legs down while really using your powerhouse to lift right on up. So here we go. On the count of three, one, two, three, lifting up. And we're going to slide just a bit forward.

Get into your teaser. Nice job. Now go ahead and bend the knees and gracefully slide your tailbone right into the crack. And we're going to do some hip circles. There you go. Getting nice position. Gets tall in that upper body as you can. Good. And now bring your legs. Here we go. It was more me than you. Push with your arms as straight as you can. There we go. That's it.

And now we're going to go to the right around and scoop it up. Good. And to the left around. Nice job at right around and scoop. Good job. And around and up. One more set. Reach it around and up. Good.

And last one left around and scoop up. Good job patients. All right, I want you to finish with my favorite, which is breathing. So I want you to slide back the barrel. Actually, do you want to stand up for a moment and I'm going to slide back here. Yeah. Now go ahead and sit with your um, tailbone. Just sit down there. I'm going to grab two quick weights here. You can do this with either a weighted bar or two hand weights and I want you to, now you're going to slide forward until your tailbone feels like it's off that front edge and then roll back over the barrel and your legs are going to be long in front of you. Good. How's that tailbone feel good in the neck.

Feels okay too. Nice. All right, so let's see if we can keep those arms equal moving equally and we're just going to inhale up to the ceiling and you're going to exhale back straight back. Actually just like that and inhaling up and exhale. Good in. So if you had the bar, imagine. So that's why we can't do the circles and up. Now, the right arm doesn't like to open up as much as the left when you go back or the left one likes to go lower. Keep lowering that right there we go.

Up and exhale. One more time. Pull the ribs away from me. The shoulder blades away, the waist, exhaling in. Let the air and exhaling down. Good. And to get out of it, keep your weights there. Draw your chin to your chest, slide your bottom back to that crack. Good. And then reach all the way to your ankles and you end with that stretch and you are all finished my dear. Thank you. That was great. Yay.
