How to Do The Hundred | Pilates Workout

So, our first official exercise in the classical
Pilates series is called The Hundred. What The Hundred means is that you do ten
sets of ten repetitions of breath. So, you'll inhale for five counts. You'll exhale for five counts. That's one set and you'll do that ten times. Therefore, that's a hundred. And the hundred is for your circulation. It's for some vigor, some pep now that you're
focused after your warm ups. You're ready to move. All right. So, bend your knees towards your chest here
Madeline. Curl up your head, neck and shoulders like
your pilates curl, and hover your hands up just about the height of your abdominal wall. Now, extend your legs long to 45 degrees in
pilates stance. Pilates stance is when the heels are together
and the toes are apart. The legs are externally rotated. Now, begin to vigorously pump your arms up
and down. There we go. Now, inhale. 2, 3, 4, 5. Exhale. 2, 3, 4, 5. Breathe in through the nose. Then exhale out through the mouth. And keep going. Inhale. 2, 3, 4, 5. Exhale. 2, 3, 4, 5. 40, and exhale 2, 3, 4, 5. 50, you're halfway there. Now, if by this point you're getting a little
tired. It's okay if you bend your knees a little
bit. If you feel like you're sacrificing your scoop,
please bring the knees closer to your chest. Two more here Madeline. Last time, breathe in. Breathe out. 2, 3, 4, 5. Now, hold it. Try to have the discipline to hold it. Then bring your knees towards your chest. Lower your head, neck and shoulders to the
mat. And just lower your feet back down to the
mat. And that's The Hundred.
