The Wunda Chair is one of the several exercise apparatus used in a Pilates workout. It is multipurpose equipment on which you can carry out more than 75 exercise routines. While Wunda chair models have some variations, the set-up basically includes hand holds, a platform, pedal bar, springs, and a padded seat. The chair offers stable support when executing the moves with precision and control. The foot pedal can be moved up and down with the springs providing variable resistance.
A variety of beginner to advanced exercises can be performed on the chair. You can exercise in different positions, such as while sitting on top, lying down, or standing on the chair. The chair can be used for lunges, push-ups or pull-ups, with the feet or hands lowering and raising the foot bar.
A workout on the Wunda chair engages the lower back, the abdominals, and the pelvic region. It stretches and strengthens the spine. Besides conditioning your core muscles, chair exercises are good for building strength in the upper body and toning leg muscles. This Pilates machine helps develop better balance and shoulder stability, and improves coordination as well.
The chair is utilized in retraining muscles that have come under strain, or have been injured. It is incorporated in conditioning programs devised to boost performance of runners, racquet sports players, and skiers.
