Why is Pilates good for Runners?
Whether you’re a competitive runner or an occasional jogger, running is an great way to stay fit. But your body can take a beating – this is especially true if it develops muscle imbalances. These imbalances or asymmetries occur because of poor body mechanics, causing certain muscles to become overused, while others become underused. This can result in a variety of common running injuries; from lower back pain to hip issues to knee pain. Running can also lead to a wide variety of tears, strains, pulls and aches and pains.
Good posture is one of the key ingredients to success for runners and is very dependent on a strong core. Better posture adds up to more efficient movement and less chance of injury.
Pilates can create a stronger, more flexible spine and core, and can also promote faster recovery from injuries. It enables you to understand on where your head and neck need to be in relation to your spine and pelvis, all the way down through the legs and toes.
