Pilates: At Your Core
Do you feel lower back pain way too often? It is most probably because you are sitting too much, causing your spine to be in a bad form. Unfortunately, our lifestyles in the 21st century have made a lot of our work hours sedentary and immobile.
The overuse, or under-use, of certain muscles in our back, shoulders, hips and knees can also be a cause of muscular or joint pain. A lot of these injuries happen while playing racquet sports, golf, cricket etc…due to imbalance and weak muscle groups.
As you begin and maintain a regular practice of Pilates workouts you will develop a strong core. This includes your abdominal, gluteus and lower back muscles, which will support your spine and help in preventing pain.
Pilates not only builds your core strength but also makes your whole body strong and supple. With balance and control the workout will give you great strength, flexibility, stamina and concentration.
So, go Pilates!
