Pilates Over 50 Summary


Pilates Over 50: Longer, Leaner, Stronger, Younger by Lesley Ackland

Pilates is regarded as an ideal exercise regime for the over 50s, due to its low-impact exercises that ensure joints remain flexible and general mobility is increased. The routines in this book combine low-impact exercises with resistance training and weight-bearing exercise, which is crucial for building and maintaining bone density to ensure osteoporosis doesn't set in after menopause. The benefits of Pilates for more mature people include: flexible joints and a strong back to take the years off you; toned and lengthened arms, shoulders, legs, abdominals and buttocks so your clothes hang well - whatever your size; improved suppleness and grace; and improved bone density for long-term health benefits. With a case study of one of Lesley Ackland's mature clients who has used her routines to alleviate age-related health problems such as arthritis, postural difficulties and bone density problems, "Pilates Over 50" is a comprehensive guide to looking and feeling younger.
