Breast Stroke Action

Pilates for Runners Workout

  1. Inhale through the nose to circle the arms out to the sides and then to the hips. At the same time, lift into further extension with the mid to upper spine. 

  2. Exhale to flex the elbows, bring the arms by the ears and then extend them forward again as the torso returns to the hover position. 

Repeat steps 3 and 4 for 5-10 repetitions and then sit back on the feet in a child's pose to stretch the lumbar spine. 

Tips: 1. Focus on the lengthening aspect in your arm motion rather than how high you can lift your torso. This will prevent your lower back from hyperextending.

  1. This is the same motion as if you are swimming!
