Why do Pilates Roll-ups and Roll-downs

Updated: Aug 19, 2019



In Pilates, roll-downs and roll ups have been one of the basic exercise taught to begin learning how to engage the spine, pelvis, and abdominal muscles. It has become the a pivotal part in core strength and stability. Many exercise programs have left out this piece when teaching the traditional sit-up or crunch, often leaving one open to injury, extreme muscle tension or strain in various areas of our bodies, to compensate for using the wrong muscles to perform the exercises. While the exercises are still effective, the roll-ups and roll-downs help to lay the foundation for using the correct muscles and using them properly.
