Pilates 100 on the Foam Roller

Many of you have asked:

Can I practice the 100 on the Foam Roller?                                                                                       Stevie demonstrating a modified Pilates 100 with legs at Table Top

Yes, absolutely. I like to work the 100 on the Foam roller in a progression. This is a fantastic way to challenge your balance while working your core.

Instructions for the 100 on the Foam Roller

  • Lift your arms to the ceiling and curl up.
  • Bring 1 leg to table top.
  • If you can maintain your balance with 1 leg, lift your other leg.
  • Hold this position as you begin pumping your arms
  • Inhale for 5 counts and exhale for 5 counts up to 100.

Try it!  If you’re incorporating this into your home Foam Roller program from the studio, finish with the 100.

Let me know how it goes.  Love to hear of your progress.

  1. I blog often and I truly appreciate your information.
    The article has really peaked my interest. I am going to take a note of your
    website and keep checking for new details about once a week.
    I subscribed to your Feed too.

  2. Wow, this sounds great Genevieve! Thanks for the idea, I would never have thought of this… and it takes up little enough space that I can even do it on my sailboat. :-)
