I Love Strength Training, but These Pilates Workouts Have Me (and My Abs!) Hooked
I love strength training, but lately I've completely switched up my workout routine, and I've been doing a lot of Pilates. I haven't retired the weights, but I like doing Pilates workouts on days when I want to move my body but am sore from a challenging running workout or doing a strength session the day prior.
About a month ago, I did a quick search on YouTube for Pilates workouts and came across Isa Welly's channel. I immediately fell in love with her energy and began doing her workouts. I like how short they are, you don't need much space to get them done, and they challenge my muscles differently than strength training and running. I also know that as a trainer, Pilates is great for creating stability, especially for the core muscles, and it can help improve muscular imbalances.
Welly's workouts have become a favorite, and I think they're especially great on the days when you want to move, but you don't want to do anything too intense. If you're looking for a new way to train or you want something quick and challenging, these workouts have your name written all over them!
