  1. I really enjoy these workouts, but I have lower back and hip problem is there anything to do to help ease some of the pain in that area while working out? my hip pops out of socket and grinds together causing it to pop and ache a lot:(

  2. I really struggled with this one….It really hurt my hip and on top of that I think I must just have weak obliques anyway…😐 Hopefully next time this comes up in either the beginners 2.0 calendar or December Calendar…I'll improve and be able to go further! 😆💪

  3. Am I the only one who hates this move? I can't feel it burn and my hips just scream in pain when I try doing them… and no, doubling the mat or placing something softer under them doesn't help >_<

  4. Purchased 28 day piit during black friday and am going to do it over winter break. I'm going a whole week first with doing 3 videos starting with the december calendar to get my body back into excersize. Don't want to traumatize it. Then going to pitt 28.

  5. Any variation for this move? And any tips on how to position the rest of my body? I think some parts of my upper body isnt position right because my neck and shoulders are super painful especially with the speed of the music :'(

  6. It's hard to focus on my abs since this move kind of makes my hip joints pop every time I go up or down (no I'm not old.. my hips have popped since I was a young kid in gymnastics)… but I find if I take the move to half speed from what Cassey is doing, then I can better control the movement and my hips don't bother me or move around too much

  7. Hope you're doing a lot better now, Cassey! Injuries suck but I'm glad you know when to take it easy. xoxo -Clarisse

    PS- Who else absolutely loves the thumbnail of this video?!

  8. I'm not sure this is an ideal video tutorial. Its really hard to do it the right way and if we dont, not only it has no effect but also we could injure ourselves though.

  9. How do I do this workout without hurting my hip bone? Every time I bring my legs up my bone seeps into the ground and hurts the more I reach for my ankles. Just wondering because I'm all about losing my love handles and really want this exercise to work! Thanks!

  10. thank god, i injured my knee yesterday i jumped to my knee and landed my knee on a screw in my carpet and it hurts to be on my knee hopefully i share cassy's pain

  11. I often find that moves in this position really hurt my hip bones. I've tried doubling up my mat, sometimes so much that I'm more on the carpet then the mat anymore haha. I've tried a cushion too but ended up slipping all over the place :'D. I never thought i was a bony person til i started pilates. But i have a lot of problems it seems struggling to do moves because ma bones and the floor are ganging up on the flesh in between. Any suggestions?

  12. Its been so long since I took on exercise with excitement. It's like when I was a kid and I was always active and having fun! You make me want to work hard!! 💪💕

  13. I injured my ankle two weeks before my wedding and was so worried I wouldn't be able to work out so I am super thankful for the these workouts! Now I can heal my ankle and still look great walking (not limbing) down the aisle!

  14. Tbh I was ready to skip this video, then I read the comments of people getting through it so I sucked it up and did it. Definitely challenging but not death either

  15. Guys for a modification you can keep the bottom leg on the floor and just crunch up to the top leg it's a lot easier and less harsh on the hips. I also added some padding under my hips cause damn it was hurting my pelvis to do this move lmao

  16. Here I am clapping like a seal for myself for finishing day 1 of the November calendar. I have to say I think we all consider ourselves pros when it comes to clapping for ourselves :') I sure do!

  17. Man! I went back on track after a year of neglecting my body, and it's been weird, I've been really lazy, and still, I hit the beginner's calendar like no big deal, I added some more work out vids for a couple of days until finally deciding to get right back on the monthly calendar. I gotta say, I don't do the exercises all too perfect but I'm doing them all! I thought of quitting several times but I didn't. That really is my pride

  18. So hard!!! But I LOVED IT!!! Only downside is that before you click on the workout, when you see "POP Pilates OBLIQUES Challenge" it shows a picture of candle stick dippers… and I was SO excited to do those!!! so it was a lil misleading 🙁 But still an awesome, fast, fun workout!

  19. Hi Cassey!! Have been following you and your amazing workouts for lil over 3 months.. but this one kills it all. i just couldnt do this one, you kept saying "lift" and i kept looking at my legs in that position 🙁 what am i doing wrong!!
