Abdominal and Pelvic Cancer Restoration on the MOTR

This unique workout by Dr. Suzanne Martin of Pilates Therapeutics uses the MOTR® as a tool to help aid in recovery from cancers of the abdomen and pelvis. The workout begins with a warm up to mobilize the abdomen and waist areas with breathing and rhythmic movements, followed by use of the MOTR arm that accentuates oblique abdominal usage and helps to challenge lateral and spiral fascial lines. Dr. Martin calls out levels of difficulty throughout the exercises so that instructors and exercisers can quickly identify how to start at a low level or modify the exercises for their level. Sections include seated arm and trunk rotations, then progress to pelvic bridging for pelvic balancing; supine overhead arm reaches for more core stability and anterior torso opening. Exercises use the entire MOTR, the arm alone, or as a roller. Includes a tutorial on set up and use of your MOTR.

Props used: Mat. Arch Tubbie (SmartSpine™).

Total run time: 75 min.
