I recently had a client ask me about the "Superman" exercise on the reformer. This worried me, as there is no exercise by that name. There are a few things I thought of - swimming prep on the long box and swan.
So I went on YouTube and searched, and saw so many scary things! The only actual Pilates exercise I saw was the Long Stretch, incorrectly named Superman.
There is a specific language to Pilates - Joe named the exercises, the apparatus, and certain cues and principles. And when we don't use the specific language, it can confuse our clients and possibly lead to injury.
