BENEFITS OF TRX AND FUNCTIONAL TRAINING PILATES NORTH LAKES

Functional training is essentially any exercise that enhances every day movement and mobility. If you are a runner, for example, we could work on your ankle strength and your range of motion in your hip. The goal? to make your running life more functional and strong. Pilates is functional training. Every exercise in pilates is targeted at making your body move more functionally. Every position we have you work in (in Pilates and TRX) will make your body stronger and more fluid.

The Benefits of TRX in pilates functional training is that you are moving the body (upper and lower) through a sequence of movement fluidly. Conditioning your arms or legs in TRX will enhance your strength through multiple frames of one particular movement pattern. For example: if you do a full squat jump from full flexion to full extension, you will have different positions that will be more challenging than others.  This movement is training your body to work in every phase of that squat.

You might be really strong in a mid squat and could hold it for two minutes, or, you could go just below that mid-range squat and only be able to hold for 20 seconds. The beauty in the TRX is we can safely get you into a top to bottom movement making your strength range much broader than just that one position squat.

TRX & PILATES NORTH LAKES

The TRX straps give you the stability to place your body in otherwise impossible ways to stand, squat, or lean into. This emphasises transitional movement, and also increases strength in potentially weak areas. The goal is then actualized when you are stronger in a multidimensional way, which will also decrease your potential of injury. 

In conclusion, TRX and pilates will overall increase your strength, mobility, and body awareness. These aspects will make you stronger and help you be less likely to injure yourself.

Apart from strength and mobility, moving well brings self confidence! Self confidence gives us more trust in our bodies, that helps us move better. When we doubt our bodies capabilities we will naturally be more guarded in our movement and will likely hurt ourselves more often. That said, let’s build trust with our bodies and put them in uncomfortable situations so that we can trust them when those falls happen, or self correct out of those injury based positions.

BENEFITS OF PILATES AND TRX IN THE EYES OF PLYOMETRIC TRAINING

What is Plyometric training?

Plyometric training are exercises that include jumping, skipping, and explosive movement such as jump squats. The purpose of Plyometric training is to increase power and speed. There are two kinds of muscle contraction:

  1. Eccentric work is the muscle lengthened (going down a mountain)
  2. Concentric work is the muscle shortened (going up a mountain)

The basics of Plyometric is that we want to have a short recovery from our explosive movements so that the muscle builds power. When you do exercises on the jump board (reformer) for instance, your recovery between jumps is very short.

This will allow the muscle to develop and grow stronger because of the demand on the muscle in the short time frame.  This is also why jump squats on the TRX are helpful because we are building your muscle to be stronger and more responsive. This is the same for arm work with short recovery.

Pilates has a mixture of slow movement which is a lot of the eccentric work we were talking about before that will build endurance and stability. This is also why we add in exercises that add more fast explosive movement with little recovery so that your muscle power will also be increased.

If you are looking for a workout that will target both kinds of work in your body the reformer and TRX classes will be great for building power and speed to your muscle conditioning. Whether you are cross training for a sport, want to have less back pain, want to feel stronger and more in control of your body, these activities will suit your needs.
