6/💯 Core Bed Exercises Guide for Beginners - A Must-See!

Detailed Explanation of the 6/100 Single Leg Exercise

Welcome to the Gymfrog blog! Today, we bring you a beginner's guide to one of the core exercises on the Pilates reformer bed – the 6/100 single leg exercise. Whether you are new to Pilates or have some experience, you will find a suitable way to practice this exercise. Below, we will explain the key points and details of this exercise.

❤ Spring Setting:

  • Beginners: 1-2 red springs
  • Experienced: 1 red spring

Choose different spring resistances based on your practice goals. Beginners are recommended to use 1-2 red springs, while those with experience can use 1 red spring. Different spring resistances will result in varying workout effects.

❤ Bar Position:

  • Normal position

Ensure that the bar is in the normal position to provide adequate support during the exercise.

❤ Headrest Setting:

  • Raise by 1 level

If you experience neck discomfort, it is recommended to raise the headrest by one level. This provides better neck support during the exercise and reduces discomfort.

❤ Exercise Details:

As shown in the second illustration, your ankle needs to remain stable during both the lift and drop. A stable ankle helps you control the movement better and prevents unnecessary injuries.

❤ Exercise Goals:

  • Ankle stability
  • Lower limb coordination
  • Slim calves

The main purpose of this exercise is to enhance ankle stability, improve lower limb coordination, and effectively tone and slim the calves.

❤ Additional Body Position Details:

  • Shoulders 1 cm away from the shoulder rest

During the exercise, ensure that your shoulders are 1 cm away from the shoulder rest to maintain proper shoulder positioning and perform the exercise correctly.
