STOTT PILATES® Athletic Conditioning on
the Arc Barrel

(formerly Exploring the Arc Barrel)

The Arc Barrel has traditionally been used solely for Pilates training. Now, explore how to utilize the cushioned and curved surface of the barrel to facilitate a unique series of stretching and strengthening moves that fit perfectly into any conditioning routine. An excellent cross-training tool, the Arc Barrel can be used to support the torso or the limbs and allow focus on isolating precise movements in individual joints. Then combine and incorporate all of them into an efficient and effective full-body workout. With this workshop, developed by the Merrithew™ team, discover how to position the Barrel in a variety of ways to mobilize and strengthen joint structures as well as to increase stability at the core.
