Power Pilates UK Blog

As women age, maintaining physical health becomes increasingly important. Scientific research advocates for women to lift heavier weights and increase loads to combat the loss of muscle and bone mass as we age. While this is crucial, it’s equally essential to focus on the smaller stabiliser muscles that support the major muscle groups. Neglecting these muscles can increase the risk of injury, especially for women over 35-40 and post-menopause when estrogen levels decrease. Therefore, adopting an intelligent foundation program, using Pilates, can prevent injuries and promote overall well-being ..read more

As we age, we decline in muscle mass and bone density quite rapidly, and one of the only ways to counteract this decline, is to lift heavier weights. (Note; protein intake should also be considered too) Lifting weights is a stimulus for creating lean muscle mass and decreasing visceral fat, especially around the tummy which is common in perimenopause and menopausal women.
