Teasing Your Way to a Tight Tummy

Volleyball Olympian Kerri Walsh has an athlete's abdomen. Here's how she gets it:

In addition to practicing on the volleyball court, three hours a day, Walsh also practices pilates three days a week. She feels that it has given her greater flexibility, strength and stability.

Her favorite pilates move is called The Teaser.

See a demonstration of the advanced Teaser.

I am not fit/advanced enough to do a Teaser in its full form. I have done--with great difficulty!--the beginner version shown in this video's second part.(The one with the bent knees, ball between knees, and using the roll-down/push-through bar.)

Yes she has a great body. I hope to be as fit as her one day. Can you tell me a little bit more about pilates

OMG! I wish I had a tummy like hers! Not to mention, her arms, hips, thighs, butt...you get the point. I admire olympic athletes sooo much! The dedication they have is unbelievable!

Chrissie, if you go down my sidebar to where the labels are (the Blogger labels, that is), I have one you can click for Pilates, that has all my posts on the subject, from my first session a month and a half ago.)

My sidebar also has blogrolls for Pilates specific blogs/sites. You can sample those. :)

Also, if you google "Pilates", you're gonna find a TON of info. www.stottpilates.com is the officialsite for the type I'm doing.
