WHAT A

Pilates- and ballet-inspired workout to increase strength and flexibility, while improving balance and grace. TARGET The workout is divided into six segments: warm¬up, upper body, legs, glutes, inner thighs and abs, and stretch and balance.

BUY THIS BECAUSE

WHAT

Got super-tight hamstrings that won’t budge an inch? This book is aimed at those who already know the classical matwork but are still challenged by limited flexibility.
