[cs_content][cs_element_section _id=”1″ ][cs_element_row _id=”2″ ][cs_element_column _id=”3″ ][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify”]It is so exhilarating and uplifting when we do the Pilates Side Leg Kick where it matters. Because when we do the Side Leg Kick where it doesn’t matter all kinds of unfortunate hindrances will occur. Such hindrances are situated in our head, ribcage and pelvis; specifically, in the positions we place them and in the manner we use them, as we kick our leg forwards and backwards. All this will influence the effortlessness of the work needed to master the kick as smoothly as walking in the park on a Sunday afternoon. So, how to do the Side Leg Kick with ease?[/cs_text][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify”]A simple and effective kinesthetic learning tool will help because it will develop our psoas awareness and so enhance the Pilates Side Leg Kick exercises.

And even though I am “only” showing you the learning tool and the Side Leg Kick 1 exercise in the video further below, the learning tool is applicable to all Side Leg Kick variations. Now, let us implement our tool …

[/x_custom_headline][x_image type=”none” src=”https://bodyhood.christopherrapp.at/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/LearningTool_web.jpg” alt=”Pilates Side Leg Kick exercise learning tool kinesthetic awareness” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify”]We lie on the left side of the body with the left leg extended and the left heel off the ground in a slight external rotation to facilitate a better anchoring of our pelvis to the ground. The left arm is extended under our ribcage to facilitate axial elongation. The right leg is bent in a 90-degree angle, and the right foot is in dorsal flexion to facilitate the work of our iliopsoas, which is responsible for hip flexion. The right arm is bent overhead with the right hand on the ground to support axial elevation and elongation of our torso.

Watch the video to see the learning tool in action and its effect on the Side Leg Kick. The background music, by the way, is from the song “Someday it will come” by Alpha Rhyth Mix.[/cs_text][x_video_embed no_container=”false” type=”16:9″]
[/x_video_embed][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”false” style=”text-transform:none!important;padding-bottom:10px;”]How and why it matters[/x_custom_headline][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify”]The result and process of the exercise is
1. a dynamic elevation and elongation of the torso
2. an isometric flexion of the right knee and
3. a dynamic rotation of the pelvis to maintain neutral pelvic position.

Try it, stay in the position for at least a few minutes, and afterwards do the Side Leg Kick to experience the “a-ha” effect. You will not believe how easy it is now to get your leg towards your head. And you will achieve even more … [/cs_text][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”false” style=”text-transform:none!important;padding-bottom:10px;”]Expanded awareness in just a few minutes
[/x_custom_headline][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify”]You will develop clear kinesthetic awareness of
(1) the work of your poas as the prime mover of the right leg.
(2) the importance of axial elevation and elongation of your spine and torso as a counter balance to the left leg and
(3) the importance of the external rotation of the stabilizing left leg via your pelvis.[/cs_text][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify”][cs_text]
