    I bought a Pilates dvd

    I haven't posted here for a while and the last time I came here it was under construction. Usually I go to the exercise room that the apartment complex has but, like in the posts I mentioned before, it's small...it does have a few ellipticals and treadmills and assorted weight machines, but I find that from going there numerous times that my upper thighs were getting muscular and my knees starting to hurt. So the other day I was at the store at the sports section and was browsing the dvds and saw a Pilates dvd. It included a resistance band with it and it had 5 work-out segments for each part of the body. It started with the arms, and the legs, abs, all over section, flexibility, etc.. I already feel it already it in my muscles and its a good feeling. Has anyone here ever did pilates with resistance band. If you never did, it worth it.

    Exercise bands or tubing is resistance exercise that can be very effective. As long as the muscles are contracting against an external resistance they will respond. Plus, with the bands you can do a large variety of exercises. Enjoy it.
