Video – Sample Pilates Class (Mens Pilates & Core Strength) Program/Routine and the importance of balancing your exercise routine.

>> View a list of all videos. <<

In the video below you see me talking you through a sample “Men Only Pilates & Core Strength Class” Routine and Program. The exercise routine was taken from one of the Mens Pilates classes, that I’m teaching in South Dublin, Ireland in Sandyford/Leopardstown in the Sandyford Community Centre.

I firmly believe that keeping your exercise and fitness regimes and programs * balanced is essential to prevent overuse * of muscle groups and joints etc..
Here a few examples re how to pair exercises to maintain balance.
If you work x … then work y …
1. If you work your chest, work your back
2. If you work your thighs, work your hamstrings
3. If you work your abdominals/abs/stomach, work your mid/lower back
4. If you work your biceps, work your triceps
5. If you work your right, work your left (e.g. neck, shoulders, etc.)

I still see it in lots of exercise classes, some personal training programs etc. that fitness instructors and personal trainers prescribe routines that are out of balance and will lead to issues in the long term if one body part or muscle group is un-proportionally stronger/weaker than it’s opposite body part or muscle group.
You should keep this idea also in mind when creating your weekly or monthly exercise program – balance your exercise week or month similarly.
Here you ideally mix (1) Strength Exercises, (2) Cardio Exercises, (3) Mobility and Flexibility Exercises, (4) Core Strength and (5) Stability exercises (possibly also Balance depending on your age profile, sport or physical activities).

Contact me with any question you might have about this “Keeping the Balance Concept” or above video.

Video May 2018 – availability – Men Only Pilates Classes in South Dublin, Ireland

A new set of Mens Pilates, Core Strength and Flexibility Classes starts during the week of Monday 7th of May and Monday 14th of May 2018 in the greater South Dublin area, Dublin 14, Dublin 16 and Dublin 18.

The classes and courses run in eight-week blocks. There is generally a maximum of 8-10 participants per class, meaning the classes are rather small and this allows me to offer a good degree of individual attention. Benefit from 16 years teaching experience, I worked with hundreds of individuals of all ages mid/late teens to individuals in their 90s, busy mums, business owners, desk-bound office workers, retired people, various groups and individuals from sports like rugby, GAA, soccer, tennis, long-distance running and golf.

View the video below for class details, check my full exercise and fitness class timetable here or contact me if you have any further questions or to book a class.

“Hi Martin,
thanks for making this available, really appreciate it. Videos are at a good pace, very clear, good to have a visual check at home between classes. It is helping me anchor the exercises in my memory. Used my tablet so I could have it down on the floor beside me, easy to see as I was working. Thanks again.
