How to get more muscle power with pilates
The slow and deliberate movements of pilates might not seem likely to produce strength in the same way as lifting weights, for example, but in fact pilates strengthens the whole body in a way that weight lifting doesn’t.
For example, pilates is known to be particularly good at targetting the abdominal obliques, a group of muscles to the side of your stomach, which it’s very difficult to do in other ways. It also strengthens your core muscles, not just your arms and legs, making you stronger overall.
Extra benefits: Your body will look evenly toned and muscular, rather than top or bottom-heavy in terms of muscle.
