The best Pilates workouts will make you feel energized, limber and strong. While there are infinite combinations of exercises that will benefit individuals for many different reasons, there are a few ways you can maximize any Pilates workout.

MaximizePilatesWorkoutBlogFirst, you must realize that the quick results of Pilates come from focus. No part of your body will be ignored. Everything, from when you breathe to the placement of your toes, is calculated. And because no muscles are being neglected, you are using more energy and effort to hold the right position. Each movement is clean, precise and coordinated—no mindless flopping around to finish out your reps. This focus is also one of the hardest parts of Pilates. There is always a lot to think about, so you are also practicing using your brain to hone in on one thing—your body.  

All my clients are busy, responsible folks, with jobs and obligations and to-do lists. How is one supposed to shut off constant brain-chatter for a workout? The answer is a good warm-up. The best Pilates workouts always have a warm-up period to transition from busy-busy-busy to calm and focused. A good warm-up lets your brain reach down into your body to sense its physical counterpart. It allows your brain to check in with your muscles—Hey, how ya doin’ trapezius?—to notice which are tight or doing too much work. A good warm-up also prepares your muscles for action. Your body will begin sending blood to your working muscles, supplying them with fresh oxygen and nutrients. This flood of necessary nutrients will improve your performance, letting you push a little harder to get that great Pilates burn.

One final component of all the best Pilates workouts is stretching while you strengthen. While one muscle group is contracting to move at a joint, its opposing muscle group is lengthening. That’s why, even if you can’t keep your knees straight for a hamstring stretch, you should try. When your quads/hip flexors contract, it forces a stretch on the hamstrings (they are opposing muscle groups). If you do not encourage your quads to engage and straighten out your knees, you will not get a good hamstring stretch and you won’t be fully strengthening your thighs. Such relationships exist at every joint.

Every movement should be a controlled reaching movement that stops when muscle tightness prohibits moving further with proper form. You’ve got to pay attention to your body to find each natural stopping point. This component touches a little on “focus,” but is important on its own.
