Here is a little bit of education on the side of your burn:
What do you think your abs look like? No they arent just 6 pack shaped! They look like a cylinder with a base to it. There are so many muscles that make up your abdominals as a whole. Here are 4 of the main ones we often focus on in pilates.
- Transverse Abdominis: Deep core muscles responsible for stabilising the pelvis and lumbar spine.
- Rectus Abdominis: Superficial muscles often reffered to as your "6 pack" that run from your ribs and pubic bone. Responsible for forward bending of the spine.
- Oblique slings: A group of muscles (including the obliques) that run diagonally across the torso creating an x like shape. The diagonal line that runs from the top at one side to the bottom on the other side is what you use to rotate the spine in exercises like kriss cross (shoulder to knee). Fun fact - you have oblique slings on the back of your body too!
