Hamstrimg muscle elasticity is important in many functional and athletic activities, because dancers must show high amplitude movements with lower extremities and trunk [3]. Aerobic Gymnastics athletes continuously perform complex movements following music patterns, which require high levels of fitness, strength, flexibility and range of motion in joins [4]. In spite of a growth in gymnastic modalities, we didn’t find research about Pilates effect to young age Aerobic Gymnastics athletes.
