Five Things Guys Need to Know About Pilates Now

Flat Belly Pilates

Here are five things guys need to know about Pilates right now.

1. Pilates was developed by a man for men. It was designed by Joseph Pilates, a former boxer and gymnast to rehabilitate wounded internees during World War I. When Joseph Pilates first opened his New York studio, many of his clients were boxers, wrestlers and other athletes of varying disciplines. Despite its subtle, careful movements, Pilates isn’t just for women. Many men including professional athletes benefit from practicing Pilates.

2. It’s a challenging workout that emphasizes the importance of core stability, strength, balance and flexibility to prevent injury and improve athletic performance. Many men will be surprised how sore they are after a Pilates session.

3. Pilates is great for developing smaller, supporting muscles that are often neglected in daily life and weightlifting. Developing these areas increases strength, flexibility and range of motion. Many men who have tight shoulders, backs, hips and hamstrings will find welcome relief in these areas.

4. You’ll never skip leg day. Pilates is a full-body workout that will work everything from the top of your head to your tips of your toes.

5. With consistent practice, the benefits of Pilates include increased strength and flexibility, improved posture and balance, an overall toned body, and reduced stress. 

Flat Belly Pilates offers private classes and tailors each session to the client’s individual needs. During your session, your instructor will guide you through a series of 20-25 poses with verbal cues and physical adjustments specifically for your needs whether you are a beginner who wants an introduction to the practice, someone hoping to learn new poses at your own pace, or and advanced student seeking to develop their skills.

Since many men have tight shoulder, backs, hips and legs, we take time to properly warm up the body. The first part of the session is spent warming up in preparation for the deep stretching, strengthening and balancing poses where clients are encouraged to work up a sweat and find their edge. As they advance in their practice, clients are challenged with various Pilates equipment including weighted balls, fitness rings and resistance bands so that they continue to make progress towards their fitness goals.

Single Leg Stretch

Lie down on your mat with your arms at your sides. Scoop your abdominal muscles in and up and keep them there throughout these five poses. Bend your knees and bring them to your chest. Lift your head, neck and shoulders. Place your hands on your right knee and extend your left leg out to a 45-degree angle and switch sides. Complete for 10 repetitions on both sides. 

Double Leg Stretch

From the previous pose, keep your head and shoulders lifted. If you’re new to Pilates and still building strength, you can rest your neck between poses. If you want a challenge, keep your head, neck and shoulders lifted throughout these five exercises. Curl both legs in and lightly place your hands on your knees. Inhale and extend arms and legs in opposite directions. Exhale and return to the starting position. Complete for 10 repetitions. 

Scissors

Keep your head and shoulders lifted. Extend both legs to the ceiling and reach up as far as you can on your right leg. Pull it in for two short pulses and then switch legs. Be sure to climb up your leg and not pull it towards you as you complete 10 repetitions. 

Criss Cross

Keep your head lifted, bring your knees to your chest. Extend your left leg out to 45-degree angle and twist towards the bent right knee. Switch sides. Aim for 10 repetitions on both sides and be sure to keep your shoulder blades off the mat. 

Lower Lift

From Criss Cross, keep your head up and place your hands at the base of your neck. Extend both legs up to the ceiling. Slowly lower legs to a 45-degree angle. Then, return legs to a 90-degree angle. Aim for 10 repetitions.
