When those abs your Pilates class promised are nowhere to be found If you're on your umpteenth Pilates class and not seeing any results, your breathing may be the problem. The quick, targeted reps in Pilates classes are all for naught if you're not practicing lateral breathing. The next time you're going through the motions, inhale through your nose when the belly is flat and engage your abs by pulling your bellybutton down toward your spine -- imagine your ribcage expanding laterally as your fill your body with air. On your exhale, forcefully (and audibly) push air out of your audibly to keep abs engaged through the entire workout. Feel the burn.
