The Pilates Ring is also known as the Magic Circle because of its metaphysical advantages. It’s constructed of a flexible material that allows for several resistance levels depending on how hard you squeeze it.
The Pilates ring aids in the development of resistance, stability, joint mobility, and muscular strength. It also aids in flexibility, balance, and preventing injuries. You may use this exceptional device to target numerous body regions. If you have never utilized a magic circle or don’t know how to do so, we’ll show you how.
These are Pilates rings’ five most basic and simple workouts.
Take your magic circle and position it just above shoulder level. While holding the ring, your arms must be fully straightened and your shoulders relaxed.
Now, squeeze the ring with your hands for at least 20 seconds, then release. This will stimulate all of the muscles in your arm by doing this exercise 10 times or more.
Put one foot in the ring and hold its opposite side with your hands while laying on your back. Straighten one leg along the floor and the other to stretch the hamstring. Staying in this position for at least 30 seconds is recommended.
Bend your legs as shown in the illustration and lie on your yoga mat. Now, squeeze your knees with the Pilates ring for 20 seconds between your knees. Do this at least eight to ten times if possible. Strengthening inner thigh muscles is aided by this exercise.
Close to the Ceiling
Bring the ring overhead so that it is parallel to the ceiling for this activity. Your shoulders should be relaxed and your back straightened. Bring your elbows out to the side and pump up and down the magic circle while tightening and relaxing your palms. This helps to target the arms, back, and chest effectively. For optimum benefits, do this at least 8-10 times.
Tip: Inhale when squeezing the ring, then exhale as you release it.
