This is What I am Doing in Addition to Pilates with Tiffany Mortimer

written by Tiffany Mortimer, Pure Pilates Instructor

I give credit to my Pilates practice for a quick recovery after ACL surgery, but my doctor suggested more strength training to aid in further recovery.  I found a great personal trainer who comes to my house and pushes me through a rotating series of squats, deadlifts, bridging, lateral leg lifts, lunges, and deficit lunges. 

The combination of weight lifting with Pilates has me feeling better than ever.  I even added a second session of training to focus on upper body strength!  Resistance training either through weights, springs, bands, etc becomes even more important as we age and for me, has helped tremendously with my energy and how I feel throughout the day. 

 

You don’t need a lot of equipment to get started, just a few weights (or an adjustable set) and maybe a Theraband or loop bands.
