The Pilates exercise routine is gaining tremendous visibility and popularity in the past half decade.
This exercise method, which has its prime focus on boosting up a person’s physical, mental and psychological strength and health – is a great exercise system to learn and practice on the daily basis for optimal health!
The main thing to know about the Pilates exercise system is this – if you are trying to get more into fitness, increase how much stamina you have and to develop a good lot of body tone, while also increasing the flexibility of your body – all without doing any exercises that builds up your musculature also, Pilates may be what you’re looking for!
The prime directive behind Pilates is to make the individual training to get the best possible body shape within the parameters of their own body. No matter if you are a still- growing child or an old aging person looking to get your body to shape, Pilates is an amazing new potential exercise routine that you can pursue with great benefits!
What Do You Do In Pilates?
In Pilates, the main focus is behind building muscle strength (but not mass!) and helping an individual find their core balance by optimizing their spine balance and alignment.
Basically, in Pilates, the exercises revolve around firming and strengthening the three core muscle areas – namely the spinal and back muscles, the abdominal and pelvic muscles and the limbic muscles.
Since Pilates involves primarily stretching and holding of positions, your heart rate increases and your body gets an excellent workout, but you do not actually wear out your muscles and respiratory and circulatory systems – as you would do in any other aerobic exercises such as cycling, or running or jogging or weight training.
Pilates does not need any equipment! Once you have received proper training from a qualified trainer in this exercise, you can keep yourself at optimal body fitness from the comfort of your home with the regular practicing of Pilates!
