Now that we’re working out at home more frequently than at the gym, pilates has picked up popularity thanks to its controlled movements, use of body weight and easy resistance techniques. At ORGANO we believe that a healthy lifestyle sets you up for success, that’s why we created OGX and the XChallenge to support you through that journey of wellness.
Today, we bring you some Pilates routines you can try at home, all of them can be tailored to your fitness level and provide amazing benefits:
– Muscle toning
– Core strengthening
– More Flexibility
– Better posture
– Cardio activity
– Back pain relief
This beginners routine will help your body adjust and learn some of the basic core movements used in Pilates. This routine is perfect for a quick workout or a morning stretch to start off the day.
Do a full body workout
It is important to work all the muscles in your body. Even when Pilates can help you focus on a particular area, adding at least 2 full body sessions to your week will help your body get the strength it needs for more endurance and high-difficulty movements.
Aim for flexibility
If your goal is to get better mobility you need to work on the flexibility of your muscles and Pilates is ideal to achieve that. This 15-minute routine is focused on that gentle stretch that will get you to do splits and touch your toes in no time.
Watch your back
If you suffer lower back pain you may want to try a slow but effective routine to make sure that all movements are fluid and injury-free. This workout designed by Lottie Murphy is a great way to start gaining strength on those muscles and reduce the tension on your back.
As with any other fitness routine, be mindful when putting any of these in practice, it is recommended that you consult with a physician before starting a new exercise program and follow their safety recommendations. Please listen to your body and stop if you experience any sharp or shooting pain. Have a great workout and don’t forget to join the XChallenge community powered by OGX!
