In this video, Coach Jay demonstrates the pedestal routine, which utilizes aspects of yoga and Pilates. There are three factors which should be taken into account before starting: first, you should maintain your breathing throughout. Next, make sure to engage the muscles around your core, and make sure that you have a straight line from your foot to your shoulder in each exercise. Keeping this in mind, begin by holding a push-up position for 30 seconds, keeping your body straight. Next, turn over and prop yourself up in a backwards push-up position and hold for 30 seconds. Finally, do a side pedestal, where you hold yourself up in a straight line using one arm at a time. Do each side for 20 seconds. By following this exercise routine, you should be able to tone your core muscles effectively.
