Strengthen Muscles with Yoga and Pilates Equipment
Staying active isn't always easy, especially if you suffer from health problems that make it tough to do cardio workouts. Joint pain, sore knees, and foot problems can all make it more challenging to get on a bike, elliptical machine, treadmill, or even just head out for a walk. One of the best options for those that can't exercise regularly is to practice yoga and Pilates. These low-impact workouts offer a number of impressive benefits, including improved physical and mental health, as well as your overall well-being.
Benefits of Yoga and Pilates
Yoga involves numerous relaxation techniques that help you focus on your practice and step away from the problems and stresses of your daily life. These relaxation techniques can also reduce physical symptoms such as lower back and neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and headaches. If you struggle to fall asleep at night, try practicing yoga before you go to bed. You may notice a decrease in blood pressure and find it easier to drift off into a restful sleep. Other physical benefits include increased muscle tone and strength, improved flexibility, weight loss, increased energy and vitality, and better circulation.
Pilates focuses on elongating and strengthening your muscles, which can decrease your risk of injury. During the practice of Pilates, you will focus on correct pelvic and spinal alignment as well as proper breathing as you make smooth, controlled movements. This type of exercise also helps you develop and strengthen core muscles, which control your entire body. With a stronger core, you can enjoy better flexibility and reduce back pain.
Exercise at Home
With the right yoga equipment and Pilates equipment, you can get a great workout without having to leave your home. Practicing yoga doesn't take much, but a mat is helpful to keep you from slipping when you're stretching and moving your legs. Mats come in various sizes and colors. If you plan to practice Pilates more frequently, a table can help you become more flexible and strength your muscles.
Other helpful pieces of equipment include yoga blocks, which allow you to stretch further and move into different positions and exercise balls. Find the Pilates equipment and yoga equipment you need to improve your fitness at JCPenney.
