Relaxing Workout

I don’t do any exercises which required energy especially jogging or walking. I always feel tired halfway. I even tried the aerobics and it’s only last for month. Why? I don’t like the feeling after workout.. hahahaha. My friend introduce me one kind of relaxing exercises called ‘Pilates’. I heard about it before and assumed it was for slimming purposes to flatten the stomach, belly and hip. However it is contributing and helps to reduce a weight loss without popping up in the gyms to do the body cardio and which again, needs more energy... huh. But after joined it for almost 2 weeks now, I found it’s very relaxing and need not much energy.. hehehe.. no need to go out to the sun, no sport shoes and you can do it even at your room. I’m sure your guys have heard about this Pilates thingy but still, I want to share with you all. Who knows you all want to join me…hehehe..

Pilates is a body conditioning routine that seeks to build flexibility, strength, endurance, and coordination without adding muscle bulk and it’s also increases circulation and helps to sculpt the body and strengthen the body's which focusing on activation of the low back and pelvic stabilizers during each exercises, strengthens the muscles to support the spine and protect it from injury.

This is kind are various exercises methods from around the world, among them the mind-body formats of yoga and Chinese martial arts. These exercises are intertwined between our physical and mental health. The designed of this exercises program are around principles that support the philosophy of yoga-meditation including concentration, precision, control, breathing and flowing movements. Most of the Pilates exercise focusing on the mat exercise. These exercises are designed according to the needs of our body’s to use it’s own weight as resistance. In more specific and descriptive terms, Pilates exercises focus on flexibility of the spine in all planes of motion and encourages the individual to pay close attention to their own postural or range of motion limitations so they can obtain the most out of each exercise for their individual body.

I like this kind of exercise because is so relaxing, calming but NO Sleeping hahaa…
