Crunches are a WASTE OF TIME!2:40 PM
I am really really bummed today as my weekly Tuesday Pilates class has been cancelled (for good!?!?!). It has been replaced with Cardio Salsa (My emotions - What the @*&#!). Nothing against Salsa lovers but it's my twice-a-week Pilates class which has beautifully sculpted my power house a.k.a Belly region. Thanks to Pilates I am able to admire myself for hours in the mirror ! :D
Anyways, since my first post a lot of people have inquired about Pilates; and today seems to be a perfect day to profess my love for it. People, Pilates has completely changed my life and body. I stumbled upon it about 4 years ago and since then I have never looked back. The technique and equipment used in this activity helps in body-balance and shrinking your waistline. In just first 2-3 months I had lost about 4 inches from my mid-riff alone (and I am not even being-Drama-Queen-about-it).
In comparison to Pilates, crunches will seems like a waste of time! Really! There was a point in my life when I used to do about 300 to 500 crunches daily and that did nothing for me!
Pilates is an excellent workout for anyone who:
- wants to strengthen their core muscles,
- finds Yoga boring or monotonous,
- wants to increase their balance and flexibility
