The Only Pilates Move You Need to Get a Better Butt

    I did this move 3 months ago and hurt my hip joint. My hip now hurts all the time when I sit or sleep on my side. I do no believe this is a safe exercise. I hope my hips heals but I am going to the Doctor next week since it has now been 3 months.

    I used to ski moguls when I was younger. The Olympics are trying to ban Women's ski jumping because of the inner knee of a woman is much less stable than the inner knee of a man on landing. I am beginning to experience inner right knee pain. This yoga move in my humble opinion resembles the inner knee stress that could cause problems. If something doesn't feel right doing it, even if "experts" recommend it...STOP. By realizing what works for your own body you can become beautiful, strong, and live and look much younger and healthier. Truly.

    The Bar Method also does pretzel and routines are focused on the best butt you can get
