Beginner Mat Pilates: Double Straight Leg Lower Lift

The Double Straight Leg Lower Lift or simply Lower Lift challenges the abdominals and teaches to stabilize the pelvis and torso while lengthening the legs away from the center. The Lower Lift can be modified by keeping the head and shoulders down on the mat and supporting your low back by keeping your hands under the tailbone. The intermediate/advanced version is head and shoulders lifted off the mat. Both are shown in the video below.
