STRONG POWERHOUSE CORE

Pilates based exercises

PILATES!

Core strength/core stability is the ability of the abdominals, back muscles and pelvic floor to support the spine and keep the body stable, safe and balanced.  This is a fundamental in any physical activity and is key to preventing injury and performing at full potential in sports.

We have to be intentional to gain awareness of and develop the powerhouse muscles. It requires us to slow down, get quiet and concentrate.  It’s difficult to feel and control deep muscles, but when you do, your perspective on movement changes. The hands and knees demo below is an exercise our clients do to help build a strong core base.

We add TYE4 to help understand and feel the body positioning. It also requires more muscles to fire from the start 🔥 I made Kelsey Feltman try it with and then with out TYE4, and this was her feedback:

► WEARING TYE4

  • gives boundaries
  • gives feedback to help with form
  • resistance (much harder work for abs, triceps, quads, and hamstring)
  • arms and legs reach longer
  • feel muscles firing immediately
  • brings you back to home base automatically

► NO TYE4

  • lighter
  • easier but less controlled
  • harder time telling if hips are tucked
  • no boundaries
  • have to do more reps to feel muscles
  • easy to not be aligned

LBD WORKOUT PREP

Prepping for the LITTLE BLACK DRESS Workout Challenge::

To test, I did all the exercises (50-60 reps) at the GYM with basic equipment and then I did the same workout using only TYE4® at home.

RESULTS::
The gym workout was good, sweaty and challenging. Knees were a bit cranky from some jumping and my back felt tight and knotted at the end [you know what I mean? Felt like I needed a massage]

 

The TYE4 session made me SORE, got my heart rate up higher but I had no joint pain and had a fast recovery period. Also, my back felt good and strong – almost like I’d come from a massage!!

Further evidence of the value of the Tye4!

My online coaching group is starting this 30 day workout challenge soon and they will receive daily videos showing how to apply the TYE4 to each exercise to make it more effective!

TYE4® 2016

2016 is going to be an exciting year for TYE4@ wearable resistance system… New classes are popping up all over the world in a variety of locations – from YMCA facilities to elite Dance and Pilates studios to Crossfit gyms. The New York City Ballet trains in TYE4 and this past season, we had a few of the Washington Wizard NBA basketball players using TYE4 to assist with physical therapy and to keep themselves stretched and warm on the sidelines during games. This is so exciting and there is much more to come! Many more instructors are working towards their TYE4 certifications and many people will see life changing benefits from using TYE4!  Interested in becoming a TYE4 coach or instructor, visit TheMethod Pilates.com for more info.

It’s so fun to see how diverse this training system is.  More people are using TYE4 at home to help them loose weight, build strength, gain flexibility, improve posture, develop better balance & coordination and also rehab their body (specifically ankles, knees and shoulders). It can be worn while doing your regular workout or put it on and clean your house!!  Seriously, this is happening!!!  Busy moms are now wearing TYE4 while they clean and cook… and they are seeing results!!!  When you have it on, the muscles that line and support your spine are engaged, along with your abdominals!!!!  It also activates the stabilizer muscles around your ankles, knees, and hips so they are support and strengthened.  It’s easy and it’s smart!

Look for the NEW Bone Up™ TYE4 classes coming to the Nashville area in 2016!

Bone Up is a safe and beneficial class designed specifically to those individuals with Osteoporosis, Osteopina, or any condition which limits spinal flexion in exercise.

This class focuses on improving balance, building bone mass, and increasing overall strength, flexibility and endurance with an emphasis on body alignment to ensure safety, regardless of your ability level. read more… Riverbrook Regional YMCA

“I’ve been using the Tye4 on and off since December to help lose baby weight, get in shape, and increase flexibility. During the last online coaching group I dove in head-first thanks to the competition aspect. My favorite way to workout is running and I quickly realized that the Tye4 is a great compliment to my running routine. Using the Tye4 to warm up before my run made a noticeable difference in my performance, including the addition of an extra mile and a better pace. It also gives me a great “rest day” alternative!” … Rochelle Kennedy

PILATES USING TYE4® DEMO

 

The Tye4® bungees adds resistance to these Pilates exercises – like Reformer Pilates.

EXERCISES IN THIS DEMO

1. DOUBLE LEG LOWER LIFT::  I’m showing the advanced version – holding leg bungees out to the side on the floor.  To modify, hold leg bungees but sit on your hands and squeeze your glutes (squeeze that butt!)

2.  LEG CIRCLES::  Here I’ve pulled the right arm bungee long and put that hand loop on the left foot.  Hold the bungees connected to the foot together or separate them.  Guide the leg in a circle, retracing each time.  5 each direction.  Keep the hips from rocking.

3.  SCISSOR KICK::  This demo shows an advanced variation.  To modify, don’t hold the leg bungees and reach high up on the leg closer to the chest.
