Mix up your workouts and maximize power, endurance and metabolic potential with this simple but effective Matwork exercises, developed by the Merrithew™ team. Studies show that in order to continue seeing results, long-time clients need to challenge muscle memory and mix up training methodology. Sticking to the same workout routine may cause them to plateau. Combinations of movements integrate different planes and motor patterns in more intense intervals, and provide more challenge once a level of stability and strength has been established. Incorporate the theories of interval training and even those who doubt the benefits of Pilates will ‘feel the workout’.
