Full Roll Up to Roll Over
The Full Roll Up to Roll Over combines two great classical Pilates exercises into one fluid motion. The focus is on the sequential rolling of head to tail in the roll up with full abdominal engagement and support; and then the sequential rolling from tail to head in the roll over.
The abdominals should stay engaged and strong throughout, not allowing for them to "tent" or "pop" upwards.
Once the abdominal strength and sequential sequence has been properly executed, focus on lengthening throughout the back of the legs the entire time. Allow your self to forward fold into a lovely low back and hamstring stretch at the top of the roll up, feeling the lengthening increase with every repetition.
