During your session I will be able to custom stretching and strengthening exercises specifically for your body. When we focus on using new muscles to participate in your movement you will feel the difference instantly. Instead of using the same muscles over and over to perform an activity. We can change you body, strengthen your core and much more!

The soleus is a deep, pancake-like muscle—one of your three calf muscles—that extends from the Achilles tendon on the heel up behind your knee. The soleus is responsible for plantar flexion, which is when your toes point downward. That’s the push-off when you’re walking, running or cycling. Obviously, that push-off is crucial to the movement of running. And while the fast-twitch fibers of the gastrocnemius—or outer calf—are responsible for your explosive sprinting power, those lower, deeper muscles, which are full of slow-twitch fibers, are your distance muscles. The soleus is heavily relied upon for enduring mile after mile, which is why long-distance runners are usually the first ones to experience soreness and overuse pain in their soleous. The soleus is often called a “second heart” because of its ability to pump blood into the lower leg—and that means when its tight or lacks strength, it actually inhibits the flow of blood to your foot and ankle. In some cases, your calf area may literally lock up, making you unable to flex your foot and leaving you hobbling home. (Or, worse, to the finish line.). It’s the culmination of micro-tears over time and weakness. Your body is not going to be able to push itself the way you need it to, and that’s where you really learn the role of the muscle. While true soleus injuries are rare, overuse—a dull, recurring, annoying pain—is very common in runners. One of the big things that people forget about the calf is the fact that it’s absorbing shock. Every time you step down at the end of your gait, your body has to brake. The muscles that are going to allow you to brake are your gastrocnemius and your soleus, in that order. It’s the last muscle to absorb the shock. Bottom line stretch and strength your lower leg muscles! #fascia #pilates #running #extremecorepilates #kathyclark

We ask alot of our lower leg muscles and fascia! Practice being kind to things we ask alot from. First stretch the gastrocnemius and then Stretch the soleous. It helps with ankle stability too! #fascia #activeisolatedstretching #pilates #kinesiology #pilatesreformer #flexibility #extremecorepilates #posturecorrection

Thank you for the reminder Joseph Pilates! We are continually striving to engage the transverse abdominis, the “spanx” of your abdominal muscles at extremecorepilates. What does the Tranverse Abdominis do? The transverse abdominis muscle (TVA) helps with the breathing process by assisting in exhalation and compressing the internal organs. It’s main function is to activate the core muscles and stabilize the pelvis and low back prior to movement of the body. #pilatespassion #spine #strength #AISpractioner #fascia #extremecorepilates #activeisolatedstretching #healthybodyhealthymind
