I'm naturally a slow-twitch muscle person, and pretty skinny. I don't like going to the gym or doing dumbbell routines. What I do enjoy is going to pilates classes, and not just because of the beautiful women. (Pilates is a like slower, strength oriented yoga, minus the metaphysics.) It involves a lot of holding awkward poses and slow precise movements, which requires strength, but not the kind of strength disc golf uses, which is fast and then over.
It's definitely great for balance and flexibility and an overall sense of feeling coordinated. But does slow movement strength training make you any better at fast motions like disc golf?
I don't know a lot about the biology of exercise benefits. Should I switch back to dumbbells (which I probably won't actually do because I hate it), or am I getting disc golf strength from Pilates?
