What Makes a Great Pilates Video

by pilates32 on January 7, 2012

Nowadays there are so many choices out there on the Internet when it comes to Pilates videos and other types of workout videos. If you are looking for the right one, one that sees results and ensures you do not end up injured by following it, you need to know what you are looking for.

A good Pilates video system should have a number of things good about it. Firstly it should be full of detail and each exercise should be well explained. The instructor teaching on the video should be considerate of different types of people that may be following the video, whether they have any injuries or have experienced back pain and he or she should then teach accordingly. The exercises should offer a variety of levels so that people can choose what level they should be working at.

A variety of levels within a Pilates video allows for the second most important factor that makes a great Pilates video; progression. Ensuring that there is sufficient progression for each exercise allows the user of the video to progress at a pace to suit them. They will be certain to continually see improvements and will be able to use the video for many weeks without the exercises becoming tedious and boring.

Finally, a great Pilates video should teach exercises in a sequential manner, flowing from one exercise to the next. Exercises should naturally connect to the next with no two or three exercises working the same muscles. This reduces the likelihood of muscles fatigue and over use injuries that may occur with muscles such as the abdominals, hips or lower back.

If you are looking for a great Pilates video, you can easily find one on the internet. Following a system of Pilates online is very easy to do and can work out to be less expensive and much more effective. Why not give a try?
