The Jackknife on the Ladder Barrel is one of my absolute favourites for training eccentric abdominal strength. I have to move so slowly to maintain control on the descent, and have about 3 good reps before things fall apart, but I love the challenge! Swipe to see the movement. Ps. The set up of the equipment is key to the safely and success of this exercise (like with all of them!), so please don’t try this unless you are with someone who knows what they are doing! 🌟 • • • • • #pilates #pilatesinversion #pilatesladderbarrel #ladderbarrel #jackknife #abworkout #coreworkout #corestrength @gracehurrypilates gracehurrypilates BASI Pilates Teacher & Faculty

Thanks for mentioning the importance of set up and safety! So many people try to do “tricks” who aren’t ready. And thank you for showing the HOW. Love watching you move ❤️

Incredible to see your muscles working through that. Your control is amazing! How do you not purse your lips and blow out a big breath? My face would be contorted about 15 ways during a move like that! 😂
