Table Single Leg on the Wunda Chair
Table Single Leg on the Pilates Wunda Chair will reveal where you might be relying on one side of your body more than the other. If you’re still struggling with Table on the Wunda Chair give Shoulder Bridge Single Leg a try before lifting one leg away from your Table exercise. However, once you are ready to give Single Leg Table a try work the reach of your leg from your center to support your pelvis as you pump the pedal. Keep in mind like all Pilates exercises on the Wunda Chair it’s all about working the “up” of the pedal.
Work your shoulders over your wrists while keeping width across back.
Typically you would only do Table Single Leg after having done at least one set of Table. Sitting on top of the chair your hands are at the back of the chair wide to the edges. Ideally, wrists are as close to the back edge of the chair to keep straightest wrists. Soft elbows and shoulders wide. Balls of your feet on the pedal with heels together and toes apart. Hold the pedal up as you lift your hips up into a Table. Reach your tailbone to the back of your knees and then reach one leg straight out. It’ll be on the angle following how the upper leg was prior to lifting the foot.
Holding your hips up and reaching the one leg long pump the pedal up and down. It’s tempting to lean back past the wrists with the upper body. Reach your free leg long to help keep the shoulders over the wrists and work the pedal up. Repeat on the other side. If you feel you need to repeat a 2nd round on the side that needs more connections and strength.
