I believe you currently have a workout routine that is working well for you. You are getting in your cardio and your weight training.
You still have some flexibility issues, and you need something to give you an option for muscles and strength training. One way to do that is to add yoga and Pilates to your workout routine. If you aren’t sure this will work for you, consider these benefits.
1. Lean Muscle
Are you doing weight training or weight lifting to bulk your muscles? At some point, you may need your muscles to be leaner because lean muscles mean flexible joints and toned muscles. Yoga and Pilates can give you that easily and is one of the main reasons people add them to their workout plan.
Stretching helps relax your muscles, improve circulation and reduce stress. It also helps cut down on inflammation from other workouts. Besides, the stretching portions of yoga and Pilates are instrumental in improving your posture. You can also find that your range of motion gets better when you add yoga and Pilates’ stretching to your current workout routine.
3. Body Awareness
Increased body awareness lets you notice the existing strains in various parts of your body you would not have typically seen. You can also detect if you have increased inflammation or if you notice pain that you should not have. Body awareness is an ideal reason to add yoga and Pilates to your workout plan and routine.
Yoga and Pilates also bring mindfulness and mediation to your daily workout and workout plan. There is no better way to handle stress smoothly and help work through problems and issues that you usually would not think of during your regular workout.
