The Benefits of Pilates Reformer Classes
Staying active is something we all want to do. There are always new workout and health food trends on social media. At times it’s overwhelming and you can fall into the same plain routine of basic workouts. But doing the same routine every week can become boresome, and it isn’t challenging enough. It’s important to keep a variety.
Changing things up might seem hard but throwing in some Pilates-style workouts will keep you on your toes. Check out the following section to see how these workouts can improve your overall performance.
Pilates reformer classes last about an hour, which is short compared to other workout sessions. During that time, you’ll be working every muscle in your body – making them very effective.
Tolerance to Other Workouts
By incorporating Pilates into your workouts, you can build up your pain tolerance. This style brings your muscles to the “shaking” point. If you can push through that, then your weight and strength training are going to feel much easier.
Working Mind & Body
There are a lot of moving parts in a Pilates workout, meaning over time your coordination will improve. The exercises are something you’ll feel in your muscles, but your mind is also getting a workout.
Pushing your muscles and body to their limit will improve your flexibility. That will help to improve mobility during the heavy lifting workouts.
Posture and Form
Pilates can help to strengthen your posture and form during other workouts. Having good form is crucial to not only a successful but a safe workout. By adding Pilates into your everyday workouts, you can strengthen your core. This is an important component for improving stability and protecting your spine during heavy lifting.
