What is it about Pilates that streamlines the body so differently than other forms of exercise? Eccentric Muscle. When muscle fibers lengthen this is eccentric use of the muscle.  When muscle fibers shorten this is concentric use of the muscle.  For example, when lifting a weight the fibers are shortening and when lowering a weight the fibers are lengthening.  When performing any Pilates movement we concentrate on the constant eccentric use of the muscle (stretching it out like a rubber band) hence, greater range of motion, flexibility, and leanness.Adding Pilates to any weight training program will help with muscle recovery, creating lean body mass quicker, increase muscle strength, tone, and endurance.
