How Does Pilates Help Our Body?

The term Pilates is a system of training in recent years is spreading in our country, named after its creator Joseph H. Pilates and includes a set of exercises done on the ground, many in the supine position, with the help of small equipment or addiritttura of sophisticated equipment designed specifically as the reformer, chair, step barrel.

The purpose of Pilates is to promote the control of his body, through the practice of movements that include the scapular muscles, limbs, abdomen, spine and pelvis. The subject has any age, can approach to this method of curiosity or to test for specific purposes: to recover and / or improve the agility articulate and defuse tensions in the various muscle groups.

Pilates is essential, in addition to good physical shape, even as prevention or recovery of injuries. In the latter situation an unfortunate consequence is the loss of the ability to synchronize the movement and neuromuscular balance, the implementation of a sequence of Pilates exercises guaranteed to achieve a state of proper posture, better coordination and certainly more control of muscles. From the aesthetic point of view you get a lean and sculpted body, toned abdominals with lower back and the area more strengthened, able to deal with the loads and to establish a sort of "safety belt" to protect his back.

Pilates is a solution even in cases of asymmetry, stiffness and even malfunction of the internal organs are reasons that many times of sorrow: for when the body does not live well, whether the illness depends on the physical and psycho-emotional sphere, responds by creating a shield from the rigid muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints that finally reveal the presence of stress through the contractions.

The success of this method is permitted by the collaboration of teachers with specialist rehabilitation therapists, all this makes Pilates a complete workout for everyone. Any person may rely on this training because it can only do good, especially if taken as investment in the health, in fact, is directed particularly at those who are subject to back pain: in a workout routine is going to strengthen the muscles that are already strong and weak muscles are getting weaker, thereby achieving a smooth body but especially increases the likelihood of injuries and back pain. By practicing Pilates, however, the body regains strength in full, or all the muscle they are "worked", even at the level of feet and heels.

In addition to balancing posture, Pilates is also intended to promote a state of tranquility in the subject, through the execution of fluid motion, combined with special breathing rhythms. You will get a greater capacity for concentration and body awareness in space, whose construction is based not so much on the quantity of repetitions, but on the quality of the movement.

The Pilates method is so versatile with regard to the expectations of the subject that, in addition to working on the muscles in the sweetest way possible, can also be understood as an elixir of youth, approaching the third age, body structure meets the loss of agility and flexibility, exacerbated by physical inactivity going to add up with the decrease in bone density and volume of lean mass. As a result you get a body does not care that must in any case, efforts to address and related complications. E 'should therefore be prepared to deal with such eventualities. The slowing of the aging process is possible with the reinforcement and longer muscles and develop the right degree of mobility.

The program devised by dott.J.Pilates does not include aerobic exercise, as it aspires to fatigue the cardio-respiratory system, but run under aerobic work, such as stationary bikes or walk, you can complete the conquest of a body's harmonious.

The Pilates program can alleviate the psychological and physical stress that so often is felt in normal daily activities: getting up from bed or when leaving the car feel a sharp pain in my back (lumbar), or by reversing car always feel a pang in neck, or when an existing back pain prevents us from breathing properly during coughing or sneezing.

Obviously the Pilates is also excellent for toning, staying healthy in shape, improve their sports performance. Consider that it was its founder to test the benefits of the method: the dott.Pilates as a young man suffering from asthma, rickets and rheumatic fever and to overcome the effects of poor health, and mocked the people, was motivated to create a new type of exercise that would be the solution to many physical and emotional problems and this innovation also landed in the hospital districts, for he invented a machine for years to stick with the springs to hospital beds for patients immobilized. And it is thanks to his inventiveness and his commitment that we can now benefit from a method based on full self-control and economy of movement.
