How Reformer Pilates can help you build a better booty
A strong bottom can help you get the look of a nice curvy backside. To achieve this, many people are turning to Reformer Pilates as their answer for building and strengthening glutes. In fact, it is one of the most popular exercises that comes from this type of training. This article explores why so many people enjoy this exercise and what other benefits they experience aside from getting stronger bottom muscles.
Many people enjoy doing bottom exercises because it focuses more on the glutes and less on other muscles. This makes this type of training efficient for those who want to build a stronger bottom. There are different types of Pilates workouts that focus mainly on this area such as Frog, Roll Down, Single Leg Stretch or Butt Kickers among others. Some people also find these routines helpful in improving their posture by keeping them upright while stabilizing their core muscle groups with each movement they make.
Reformer Pilates can help to build a better bottom when done correctly.
One of the best ways that Reformer Pilates helps you strengthen your butt is by engaging all four gluteal muscles, also known as “the posterior group”: The Gluteus Maximus (upper buttock), Medius (side of the hip) and Minimus (lower buttocks). You should feel these muscles engage when doing any exercise on the reformer such as plank or cat/cow stretches.
Pilates also strengthens the lower back and abdominal muscles, which are important to hold you upright.
This is why Pilates is so beneficial for those who have problems with their glutes or do a lot of sitting down on hard surfaces such as chairs or couches. The body’s natural response when seated in these positions puts more stress on your bottom region than it would if standing up straight. It can be helpful to strengthen the buttock area before symptoms become severe (such as poor posture).
