She's back! Assuming your arms still work after last week's Arms for Abs series, here is Part II of Karen Lord's killer good home Pilates routine (all you need is a mat—or some carpeting if you don't have a mat!). Come to think of it, it really doesn't matter if your arms work or not for these exercises—to take a break from your hand weights, you'll be working your legs, powered by your core and your glutes. It's a little longer than last week's installment, but still short enough to do anytime you've got 15 minutes to spare. A few things to keep in mind: the burn means it's working, and just think about how much you'll love your jeans once you're done.
