Pilates – ouch!
Many people have told me they hurt their backs from Pilates. I take Pilates classes fairly regularly, and think they’re fun and a great workout for the abs and legs. If your abs aren’t strong enough, your back will end up hurting. My tip is to go MUCH lighter on the resistance. You’ll still get a great workout.
I’ve never hurt my back with any Pilates workout, but I did hurt my toe. Is that weird? The woman on the reformer next to me left her weights in the middle of the isle and I stubbed my toe on them. Ugh!
Pilates instructions, would you tell everyone to put their weights under their reformer whenever they aren’t holding them? Thank you!
