>>188650>Pilates is actually only good for 6-12 weeks because anything is good for a novice.
Pilates is not strength training, and comparing it to it is honestly just retarded, as well as pointless.
>Stength training prevents that from occurring.
Sure, strength makes it less likely that you'll injure yourself, but in no way does it train mobility, which is why you have to add it in as an accessory to the routine, because you can easily injure yourself doing strength training without basic mobility, and lifting alone won't fix that, you need to do other work.
Your example of doing the splits actually supports me, because it doesn't matter if you squat 300lbs, if you jump straight to doing big stretches like that you're going to hurt yourself and be unsuccessful if you're starting off as the average person with only the basic flexibility to do a squat with decent form.
And true, you didn't say it was useless, you said this>Cardio should always be minimal in my eyes as strength will help cardio.
Which is just dumb. No-one lifts to get better at cardio, because the effect lifting has on your ability to do cardio based exercise is minimal.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
