Pippa Middleton leads an extremely active lifestyle, and as a result, her physique stays toned. When exercising, it is important to improve mobility as this allows a fuller range of movement. The British socialite shared her favorite exercises for mobility – with the target on “trimmer thighs”.
Pippa said: “The body moves in three planes – the sagittal, frontal and transverse.
“Most daily actions, such as walking or eating, take place in the sagittal plane – in other words using forward and backward motions.
“To engage muscles from different angles and improve your overall range of mobility, and also to prevent injuries and acquire better body stability, it’s important to exercise in different planes, particularly in the lateral.
“I’ve included moves this week that are perfect to add to your strength workout, and the three-dimensional routine will help balance the shape of your body to create a soft, feminine sculpted look.
