Today’s #WednesdayWorkout is with Bootcamp Pilates Instructor, Lucy Thirsk as she takes us through steps to perform the Leg Pull Down.

  2. Inhale and raise one leg off the floor inline with your hips. Hold for 5 seconds.
  3. Exhale, lower the leg back to the starting position.
  4. Repeat on the opposite leg.
  5. Repeat 5 times on each leg.

Lucy Thirsk served for 15 years in the Army and is therefore no stranger to the “bootcamp” ethos. Having seen operational service in the likes of Iraq, she retired from the military due to illness but was determined to regain fitness and muscle definition. To do so in a controlled way, Lucy became a Level 3 Mat Pilates instructor, and was so impressed by her own recovery that she is now dedicated to helping others. Her military background means she likes working her clients hard, but her experience will keep you within your limits – making her Pilates classes fun but intensive. She loves running, keeping fit and broadening her expertise. Visit Lucy’s website for more information www.lucypilates.wix.com/lucy
