Hell of lots things going on this exercise 🔥
But what exactly? 🧐
The Teaser is one of the definitive Pilates moves or exercises and also utilizes all of the Pilates principles: Breathing, Centering, Control, Concentration, Precision and Flow. It requires a strong and deep connection to the powerhouse to move into and stabilize the position. Joseph named this exercise the Teaser, because he felt it was a “teaser” of all that his exercise method worked towards and accomplishes.
This exercise works on strengthening the full body, and incorporates many muscles including all of the abdominal muscles, spinal extensors and hip flexors. In fact the Teaser is much more effective than traditional crunches at targeting your external obliques and rectus abdominis. The goal of the Teaser is to use your core, hip flexors, and spinal flexors to come up into and hold the position, balancing on the base of the pelvis just behind the sitz bones. There is a bit of a curve in the lumbar spine as you hold this V-sit position, with a proud and lifted upper torso, opening across the chest and shoulders.
