Single Leg Stretch (Ab Series 1/5) on the Wunda Chair
Single Leg Stretch also known as Single Leg Pull on the Pilates Wunda Chair is a fun and challenging way to explore this Mat Pilates exercise. If you’re wanting to spend more time on your Wunda chair but you also need a warm up try Single Leg Stretch to warm yourself up for a full Wunda Chair workout.
Work the pull from your upper back and legs from you center.
There are two ways to set up for this exercise. Laying on the longer side is “easier” and laying the short way is “harder” but to be honest they are both challenging. Bring your knees into your chest. Curl your head and chest up. Place your right hand on your right ankle and your left hand on your right knee or shin. Elbows wide, shoulders on your back. Stretch the other leg long to the high diagonal.
Pull on your leg with your arm-back connection twice. Switch the legs and the hands. Left hand to the ankle and right hand to the left knee/shin. Pull twice and switch. Repeat on both sides 3-5x. Then you can go directly into the Double Leg Stretch. Or sit up and rest your neck.
