PILATES--FRENCH FOR PAIN IN THE LEGS, ARMS, BUTT AND ESPECIALLY THE STOMACH!
That would be "THE CORE"! Since my next birthday is a major milestone. . . I had a little discussion with myself that I would get my body into better shape by the time I have my birthday next summer. So I added Pilates, Yoga and even Piloga to my exercise routine. Piloga is just a fusion of Pilates and Yoga and is just as pain producing as either one alone. I discovered muscles I never knew I had and maybe ones I didn't even want to know I had. Nor did I have a clue how uncoordinated and out of balance I could be. I am learning new poses every time I go.
One thing that amazes me is: HOW DID THEY EVER COME UP WITH THE NAMES FOR THE POSES! Let's start out with some of the "simple" ones. HAPPY BABY
The "TRIANGLE POSE" explains itself: But some of the others are justplain goofy!
THEN THERE IS JUST THE CREEPY. . . .
Surprisingly, that is the one I can do the best!!!!Or maybe it is the "REVERSE CORPSE"?!?!?
In fact I think it is time to practice that pose right now. . . YAWN!!
