Short Weights Routine
If you’re over 40, adding in more resistance and balance training is essential to feeling good and staying strong. Move with this 25-minute Full Body Strength Workout.
You’ll begin this class with standing exercises for strength and balance. If the balance is challenging, stand near a wall so that you can put your hands on the wall to help you stay balanced. Stick with this class and other Pilates classes that incorporate balancing exercises and your balance will improve! Just like you’ll get stronger as you keep focusing on Pilates workouts for strength.
You’ll end this 25-minute workout with exercises down on the mat focusing on strength for the legs and chest. To round out your practice, move with the short stretching routine recommended after the class ends.
Extra Tip: How heavy your weights depend upon your experience during the class. If it feels too easy, increase your weight. If it feels too challenging or like you’re straining in the body, reduce your weight. As you keep moving with strengthening classes, you may continue to adjust the weights you use.
