Oleg Rudakov, the founder of the Rock the Cycle mono-studio, and Denis Sychev, the founder of the Pilates PMP mono-studio, tell how to enhance the effect of your favorite workouts and make your legs beautiful.It turns out that if you choose the right combinations of workouts, you can quickly achieve impressive effects! To do this, you need to look at your workouts from a new angle.
The quality of life is directly related to the quality of rest, the ability to relax. The current trend is that people voluntarily increase their stress levels by opting for percussion fitness after a busy day at work and not taking the time to relax. Or, on the contrary, they lead an inactive lifestyle, spontaneously and not legibly attending any classes in a fitness club that are convenient in time. When choosing and planning combinations of workouts, think about how one practice complements or compensates for the other. As a result, you will receive not only an aesthetic but also a healing effect. This has long been known to star beauties who alternate several types of fitness. One of the most reactive and popular combinations: Pilates and Cycling. Of course, they can be practiced separately, but in combination they work more powerful. Look at the celebrities who have chosen this couple for themselves - they know what the beauty of the body is, and especially the legs! First of all, it is health. Oleg Rudakov: “Cycle pedaling for two hours in a slow rhythm or give all your best by the end of a 40-minute lesson - it's up to you: modern studios offer different approaches to cycling. In any case, the muscles of the legs will receive the deepest workout. In just a month of classes, a beautiful relief will become noticeable, and extra pounds will begin to melt. Immediately it is worth dispelling myths: pumping legs (or separately calves) will not work here, but pumping the buttocks to a seductive outline is inevitable. In the lesson, not only the legs are worked out, but also the shoulder girdle, back, abs. Beautiful and healthy feet are an important component of the beauty of the legs and the health of the whole body. In ordinary life, our feet are in discomfort: they are constantly in shoes, often in uncomfortable ones. To this we add walking only on a flat surface, and an incorrect gait, which became a motor template in childhood. Simply put: the feet are enslaved, the joints of which they are composed do not work fully. Pedaling restores mobility to the fingers and small joints of the feet, improves blood flow, literally revitalizes the feet, loosening the knees and hip joints. Cycling is not boring fitness at all. In addition to muscle training, they increase endurance, get endorphins, relieve stress, compete, listen to music and even dance and watch movies! »What happens if you visit a Pilates training session the next day or the day after cycling? Denis Sychev: “As any advanced athlete knows, the full development of muscle strength and endurance is based on the balance of tension and relaxation. That is, the muscle should relax and stretch in proportion to the effort it has made. You might think that a simple hitch or stretching would make the stressed muscles happy. Yes, but not for long. And not in the way that smart fitness does - Pilates. Here we are not just pulling muscles. We strengthen the muscle corset and joints, and a bonus: we work with attention, and this gives a wow effect! The muscular corset is the layer of deep muscles that hold our bones together. This is a beautiful posture, gait, a toned body, no pain and even the health of internal organs, which a tight muscle corset does not allow to move and fall.And it is also injury safety, which will always be with you: both in everyday life and in all your other workouts. No other type of fitness works out deep muscles like Pilates, for which everyone loved him so much. The effect of a tightened muscle corset will also capture the joints, which, no, no yes, ache for almost everyone. If you have had injuries in the past and they interfere with your life - Pilates will help you to make sure that they do not remind you of yourself. Stretching on Pilates is a holiday! Firstly, they do not work through pain, and there is no place for mechanical repetitions. Every ten seconds, the trainer will return your attention from thinking about chipped nails or a new lover to the muscles that you are currently pulling. For this, Pilates is called thoughtful fitness. During the lesson, you are constantly in the here-and-now. Thanks to this approach, stress goes out of the muscles, and it is worth a lot! There are also a lot of Pilates, and they work in great detail with the feet. Loose feet improve blood circulation and the general condition of not only the legs, but also … the head! Headaches are more common in women who wear heels, because the shift in the center of gravity leads to a deterioration in blood flow in the spine. Pilates lovers admire the lightness they feel in their bodies after each workout. The quality of sleep improves, and a sense of support appears in the body. " If the beauty tradeoff is not about you, and you need real change, an average combined workout plan might look like this: cycling twice a week, Pilates twice a week. The ideal solution is to visit mono studios. In such studios, you get attention as an individual lesson, because the groups here are not large, and the immersion in practice is very deep. It does not require the purchase of a subscription and a convenient schedule grid that allows you to flexibly plan your workouts. To make your classes even more effective, take functional testing. This procedure is usually also available in mono studios. It allows you to define your personal parameters and build a personal training process. Fitness Raid: Strength or Flexibility?
