The improvement of coordinative skills automatically increases the economy of movement in everyday life.
New at TOGU in cooperation with the sports scientist Petra Schreiber-Benoit.
Great workout with the Pilates Half Roll Premium.
Training becomes neuromuscular when the central nervous system and the musculoskeletal system (CNS)
and the musculoskeletal system with the skeletal muscles are equally muscles are challenged.
The brain receives information about posture, movement and position of the body via proprioceptors.
They thus serve the depth perception of the body’s position and movement in space,
of muscle tension, muscle length and joint position.
They pass on all this information to the cerebellum (unconscious depth perception)
and the cortex (conscious depth sensitivity) where it is processed.
The instability ofthe Half Roll is an ingenious challenge for all the senses during training.
Exercises with the Half-Roll train the sensory processes with their motor actions.
The improvement of coordinative skills automatically increases the economy of
movement in everyday life.
This new sports tool makes your Pilates training even more effective!
