Pilates "Working in Opposition" versus Weight Training "Isolation".
Traditional strength training seeks to isolate and work with individual
muscles one at a time. It does not automatically encourage stability where
it counts: In the neck, shoulder joint, lower back, hip joint and ankle
joint. Weight training will not automatically protect any of these areas
of the body, and may even destabilize and hurt rather than heal. Pilates
by contrast seeks to work a body part, while at the same time applying
strict attention to stability "at the core". This is done by
verbal cueing to encourage correct stabilizer muscle action at the above
mentioned areas: neck, shoulder, lower back, hip and ankle. Thus in the
example that follows, the limb muscles (the destabilizers) are said to
be "working in opposition" to the trunk and rotator cuff stabilizer muscles.
Conventional workouts tend to build short, bulky muscles - the type most
prone to injury. A body with balanced with strength and flexibility is
less likely to be injured. Poway Pilates conditions the whole body, even
the ankles and feet. No muscle group is over trained or under trained.
Your entire musculature is evenly balanced and conditioned, helping you
enjoy daily activities and sports with greater ease.
