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.
