Fitness, Food, & POP PIlates
I have been getting into Pilates and have been loving it, especially since I can’t get outside in this cold, winter weather. However, one problem I have always have is the flat back against the mat. I literally cannot have my back flat on the mat unless my legs are lifted or bent. Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks for any helpful suggestions!
I have the same problem. I think we probably have some kind of lordosis (it’s when your back does this curve thingy and your butt kind of pops out). I watched a really informative video on this the other day. Basically it said that when you sit a lot, the front of your thighs tighten and the bum muscles get more loose. Also, your back muscles tighten and your belly muscles get more loose. So if you stretch the front of your thighs and exercise your bum as well as stretch your back and work on your abs, your posture will improve! :) I’m sure that pilates and yoga are really good for people like us.
I hope this helped!
Hey Cassey, I’m 17 years old and I live in South Australia. I’ve just started year 12 and one of my new years resolutions was to become fit. I am classified as obese and have always been teased and picked on because of my weight, I have always felt terrible because of how I look and what people say about me, but I started your beginners calendar today. I struggled to get through each thing but every time I felt like giving up you were urging me on, so I didn’t give up. you motivate me more than any other website or YouTube blogger I’ve found and I just wanted to thank you for your amazing videos. I’m tired and sore after this workout but I know I’m going to continue on with this. Because I feel like you care about all of us who are starting out. I wont give up, and I will try my hardest with each and every work out. Thank you Cassey, you’ve made me feel better about who I am and I know I will get better and stronger and most of all fitter if I continue with your daily work out plan. so thank you Cassey for making me feel beautiful and making me realise with perseverance and positiveness I will make it and become who I am suppose to be! THANKYOU CASSEY HO.
