And It’s One of the Most Effective Ab Exercises on the Planet – the Cris Cross!
Easy to learn and it takes only a couple moments to do, this is one of the original 34 exercises created by Joseph Pilates nearly 100 years ago! It is my absolute favorite especially when done the Pilates way which is slowly and precisely. You get a wonderful stretch all across the abdominals, obliques, lower back and chest. PLUS it’s an amazing abdominal strengthening exercise.
Joe Pilates developed 34 of these ‘mat’ exercises first and then added machinery which has become so well known. These 34 mat exercises have evolved into over 50 that need no ym or equipment.
Try this one! I guarantee you’ll love it as much as I do!
