Pilates !!... You sneaky sneaky little booger !!!...

Thursday, November 17, 2011

My first session was Tuesday. Wednesday morning I woke up fine and thought hmmm..... I'm so use to a rough start the day after my work out I discounted the power of pilates. Wednesday night I thought wow I guess I did do something b/c my abs were sore. So I gave myself Wednesday off.

Today is Thursday, this is my second session this week and I am not painfully sore (except my abs) but I'm I diffinately did something stiff. It's amazing how the repetitive motions that seem so basic can really get into the theads of the muscles...

What I enjoy most through out this exercise or any exercise at that is the feel good hurt of using a muscle an then the stretching at the end. The gluts, & hip flexors are two that ALWAYS feel good. Maybe b/c the so easly get overlooked. Anywhoo..... I'm done !!

Peace Out !

    I too discounted the power of pilates. I tried it a few weeks ago with my parents. Before class my mom asked what were the chances of her being sore afterwards and the instructor insisted that we wouldn't be. I woke up the next morning and my upper back and shoulders were screaming. I don't get sore easily so it's no doubt a great workout. I haven't been back since. You sound like you like it and it's working for you. I hope you stick with it and keep up the good work.

    I'm with you on that feel good hurt after a workout. Today I did a new video I found on Netflix and my inner thighs are so sore. But I love that feeling :-) I know I got a really good workout when I feel it for a few days afterwards. Keep rocking it!!
