The Ladder Barrel offers some of the most beneficial and accessible abdominal exercises in the whole Pilates Method.

The barrel’s rounded surface is there to encourage the spine to move into extension and flexion (to backbend and forward bend) in a supported way.

Aside from extension and flexion exercises, the barrel can also be used for ab exercises and oblique movements. The barrel forces the spine to move through a greater range of motion than on the mat or on the other equipment and this makes these exercises some of the most challenging in the Pilates repertoire.
