Strength, grace, efficiency, speed, and flexibility epitomize a dolphins effortless style. Take all your swimming endeavors to dolphin status by targeting the deep core and stabilizing muscle groups.
By tapping into your supportive muscle groups, aligning the body, and building that mind/body connection, you can harness their power mid swim. Follow along for three quick pilates mat exercises you can do pre and post splash.
