A 22-Minute Cardio Pilates Workout That’s Best For Warming Up Your Whole Body

# A 22-Minute Cardio Pilates Workout That’s Perfect for Whole-Body Warm-Up

When it comes to Pilates, one thing is for sure – each workout brings a unique challenge. You can always count on feeling that satisfying burn in every muscle, but the exact nature of the workout remains a delightful mystery. The Trainer of the Month Club session we’re featuring today exemplifies this variety. In this 22-minute cardio Pilates routine led by Brian Spencer from East River Pilates, classic Pilates exercises blend seamlessly with cardio moves typically seen in strength training. Yes, you may be surprised to find burpees making an appearance in your Pilates class, but Spencer’s innovative approach will make you appreciate them in a whole new light.

Ramping up the intensity of your Pilates routine not only induces a good sweat but also enhances your stamina. Stamina, your body’s ability to endure a challenge over time, is what keeps you going when the going gets tough. So, when Spencer urges you to tackle push-ups (spoiler alert), and that inner voice urges you to quit, it’s your stamina acting as your personal motivator, pushing you to go that extra mile.

Today’s workout comprises four rounds, each lasting four minutes. Following a brief warm-up, you’ll engage in core exercises, work on your upper and lower body, and conclude with a full-body challenge merging all elements. Spencer will guide you from foundational to more advanced Pilates movements, dedicating a minute to each exercise. As Spencer warns, “A minute can feel like an eternity in some instances.”

When the seconds on the clock seem to drag on, Spencer emphasizes listening to your body. Tuning into your body’s signals is crucial for navigating the entire 22-minute session effectively. To build stamina, it’s essential to know when to push yourself and when to dial it back. Ending your workout with the same vigor you started with requires taking breaks, adjusting the speed, and modifying movements based on how your body feels.
