@WomenSportsWeek Special - Pilates for Cyclists - by Tori Norris, A Balanced Life
In @WomenSportsWeek - @WSNet will be focusing on three things - CORE conditioning (with 'A Balanced Life' consultancy) - becuase CORE is key for ALL Womens/girls sports. Employment in SPORT/FITNess & Event/Ticketing promotion. Here's today's 'CORE' story from A Balanced Life
Pilates is all about strength and flexibility of the body by focusing on the core, postural muscle groups. Cyclists tend to have highly developed legs from hours on their bikes, but unfortunately cycling alone won’t develop the body as a whole. That’s where Pilates can come in…with benefits such as developing core strength, increased balance and improved posture, by adding Pilates to your training you will find that in time your body, and even your legs, work more efficiently when you get on your bike!
What does core strength do for cyclists anyway?
A stronger, more stable core will help transfer more power to the pedals by providing a solid platform for the lower body to push against. Pilates exercises are targeted to develop strength - MORE from A Balanced Life . . .
