Tried Pilates for the 1st time today...wow, it's great! Thought I had a decent core, but boy was I in for a surprise. Have to confess, have a hip that is making my range of motion challenging (osteo-arthritis).
For those of us Endorphin junkies, the most important advice have to give is "STRETCH, STRETCH, STRETCH."
It is probably the most critical thing you can do. Have to counter the bunching up of muscles with cardio and weight lifting with trying to increase your flexibility. That's probably why they say it's important to keep moving as you get older...if you sit still too long rigamortis sets in! LOL...
Elyptical at 5:30am tomorrow per the norm...nice to get it in early. Hang in there everyone, even if you move 10 minutes a day, taking a walk around your office building or down your street, at least you did it!
