In this excellent Pilates program (Quick affectionately refers to as "Triathalates"), June Quick shares her unique on-land program for multi-sport athletes that uniquely intertwines Pilates exercises to strengthen the core and shoulder girdle, yoga exercises to increase flexibility and lung capacity, and stretching exercises to accommodate the use of the extremities while maintaining posture, line, and balance of the core. The goal of the program is to assist a multi-sport athlete in achieving and maintaining proper posture, line, and balance while running, biking, and swimming. Quick begins this video with a brief anatomy review of the body core and shoulder muscle areas that the program targets: areas crucial to multi-sport athletes. She then proceeds with three specific 20-minute follow-along workouts: 1) Upper core, 2) Middle core, and 3) Lower core. In each workout, Quick leads World-renowned triathlete Barb Lindquist through an "area specific" workout on a "long roll" (foam roller). To facilitate those wanting to work without a foam roll, Quick simultaneously coaches a second demonstrator on a traditional Pilates mat. Each workout also incorporates valuable "prehab" exercises to help prevent the most common multi-sport injuries! As a bonus, Quick offers tips for maintaining proper posture, line, and balance for running, biking, and swimming.
