Pilates is one of the best ways to strengthen the body. A class can make you exhausted. But at the same time, you are increasing your strength while doing wonders for your posture-you may not realize this until now.
In the latest episode Good move, Chloe De Winter of Go Chlo Pilates leads you through some of her favorite Pilates moves to improve your posture. She said: “All of us want to have a better posture to stand taller and feel stronger around the upper back and spine.” Starting from a ten-minute shrug, there are various exercises and stretching exercises. Let you reach your destination in 10 minutes of training. She said: “We are working on a muscle called the serrated anterior muscle, which wraps under the shoulder underbone and helps support the shoulder blade on the upper back.”
Then there is the balance and stability of the arms and legs. Derwent said: “This is very good for our posture, because it can exercise all these stable muscles around the body.” In addition to all the exercises to improve posture, you can also enjoy a treat: you can also perform good stretches. Exercise to open and relax the body, improve mobility and obtain better posture.
Some exercises (for example, raising your arms on your stomach) may not make you feel like you are doing a lot of things right now, but usually these exercises may have the biggest impact. “We are directly studying those postural muscles to help us sit or stand in a better posture throughout the day. The big muscles must work hard, and we must build and strengthen them,” Derwent said.
By the end of this 10-minute workout, your body will feel incredible-stronger and more relaxed. When you stand higher, you will know exactly why. Follow the playback in the video above and try to do Pilates posture exercises yourself.
