Mat pilates is done on the floor using an exercise or yoga mat, which employs controlled breathing during body weight resisted movement to build core strength. Mat pilates involves performing pilates exercises on the floor using a pilates or yoga mat. In the mat class, the killer abdominal exercise the 100s is the first exercise. Aside from a serious focus on ab work, traditional pilates mat work includes a series of exercises to work the inner and outer thighs, as well as a series to strengthen the back, hamstrings, and glutes.
