Classical Pilates Apparatus: Ladder Barrel

This is the largest of the three barrels and is made up of a large padded barrel mounted on a framework with a four foot ladder at one end, the position of the barrel is adjustable to accommodate people of different heights and leg lengths, exercises range from simple ballet style barre stretches to very advanced exercises requiring great abdominal strength, control and flexibility. This barrel can be used to perform exercises and exercise series which are also performed on other pieces of apparatus to add challenge to the workout order or experience the exercises done in the same way just on a different piece of apparatus.

Common exercises performed on the barrel are the barrel stretches, short box series and swan dive off the reformer. As in all apparatus such as chairs and Cadillac the ladder barrel is used to address the specific individual needs of the student.
