Pilates Magic Circle – This is my favorite piece of sports equipment and by far my favorite workout! The Magic Circle (or Fitness Circle) is an flexible ring with soft pads on the sides. It is perfect for toning the arms, chest, hips and thighs. All in all it works every muscle group!
I always use it for my arms, my chest, legs and belly. But what hat I love most about it is that I can easily work on my belly abs, because I can’t do normal sit-ups. The following two pictures show you how I work on my belly and thighs abs: Lie down on your back and place the circle between your legs right above your ankles. Place your legs straight up in a 90-degree angle. Bring your hands behind your head and gently lift your head, neck and shoulders off the floor, looking toward your belly button.
Start: Inhale and lower your legs down toward the ground until you reach a 45-degree angle. Then exhale, and bring your legs back up to a 90-degree angle, drawing in your abs. Repeat as often as you can 🙂
Now let’s talk about the clothes! When jogging I like to wear running tights or leggings. You can find them at Nike and H&M Sport. Of course it depends on the weather and in summer time I prefer shorts, like some pictures above from Nike too. A good sports bra is a must, just like the shoes! Oh and my shoes are sooo very old (but still comfy) that I really have to get me some new ones. I will have a closer look on Defshop, where you can get great stuff from Nike.
