The basic Pilates exercises
When a method influences everyone in this way, it means that it is of interest to everyone.
Of course, when we talk about Pilates, sometimes it is difficult for us to imagine the exercises that are related to this discipline, this technique, this method. Far from being a series of poses no real interest, this sport is actually a good way of working the most parts of the body , muscles, glutes and abdominals.
There are basic Pilates exercises among the more than 500 that exist and are related to this method. They work all parts of the body, combining cardio exercises and outside exercises that target the abdominal muscles and enhance the feeling of well-being .
The crossed abdominals are a fairly basic exercise in Pilates, allowing you to practice a dynamic type of yoga at the same time and participate largely in strengthening the abdominal muscles and avoiding the relaxation of muscle tone .
We can also mention the inverted bridge that, if we can do it correctly, will refine the thighs and make our silhouette more toned , slimmer and perhaps more stylized. This exercise also works to tone the body, to make it more harmonious, as well as for a hard physical training, because yes, Pilates is a sport!
The leg lift is a Pilates exercise that will allow us to have more defined legs. By “more defined legs” we mean firmer, more muscular , worthy of those of a sports coach . Through regular practice , Pilates exercises like this one will allow us to rebalance our body and make it more athletic, like people who go to the gym.
We cannot forget either the plank with arms extended , which, as its name suggests, seems to be a difficult exercise to achieve, but very effective. Always with the purpose of toning the muscles of the body , especially the abdominals; This exercise is very beneficial if one manages to practice it correctly and regularly, and it will also allow you to work your body’s breathing .
