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 have bad form and support. Unfortunately, our lifestyles in the 21st century have made many 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. Many 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 prevent pain.
Pilates builds your core strength and 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!
