7/13/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Tuesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 14. July 2013 09:00



Pilates is a great way to build flexibility and muscular endurance, especially when used to build core muscles.  Pilates won’t burn calories as quickly as cardio such as jogging, cycling or brisk walking, but it’s an excellent exercise for developing the core muscles in the center of the body that provide support for the spine.  This development improves appearance through improved posture and body awareness. 

For me, one the biggest challenges about Pilates is the mental connection required to do Pilates well.  I like to muscle my way through exercise and that just won’t work in Pilates.  It has made me more aware of how to control my flexibility and to add finesse to my workout regime.
