As he keeps running, his calves, hamstrings, glutes and quadriceps tend to get tight and eventually these tightened muscles start compensating the runner's natural glide with an altered gait.

The 10-Minute Core-Blasting Pilates Workout [INFOGRAPHIC]

The 10-Minute Core-Blasting Pilates Workout [INFOGRAPHIC] | Fitness, Health, Running and Weight loss | Scoop.it

 

Pilates is a form of exercise that aims to develop flexibility, good posture, strength, and balance all at the same time [1].

 

While some Pilates classes feature special machines (see above), mat classes require bodyweight alone and are easy to replicate at home [2]. There are dozens of individual exercises, so we asked Sarah Ruback of Core Pilates NYC to pick out a few key moves.Ruback suggests holding one-to-two-pound dumbbells (or water bottles or soup cans at home) to make this workout even more challenging.

 

The focus here is quality, not quantity, so work on making each rep as strong as possible and don’t stress about the number of reps.
