For myself Saturday is all about recovery, A little bit of teaching then alot of rest, Yesterday wasnt feeling to great so it was what I like to call sofa day. With some fab sleep plenty of vit c And honey all is well today In the GM-Fitness house hold...
Today Is my Training day With Declan, Which was a pretty good session alot of focus on posture, rear delts. Mid back, So a lot of pulling and pushing. The session took longer than i thought but overall a very enjoyable workout.
Alot of People who workout often focus on arms, abs, and legs but forget about the importance of a strong back. The back muscles are extremely important, used for things we do on a daily basis from lifting to sneezing. For this reason, it is imperative that you use back exercises to strength the muscles,
With a stronger back, every day activities will be much easier to manage from working to raising children to simply going out to enjoy life. Three major muscle groups make up the back:
Latissimus Dorsi - These muscles are found on the sides of the back, which are used for extension, rotation, and pulling arms in toward the body
Erector Spinae - Known as the lower back, this actually has three muscles, all running the entire length of the back starting at the neck and going to the buttocks. This group of muscles is used for flexibility and extension for the upper body along with rotation.
Rhomboids - These muscles are made up of minor and major muscles that go between the shoulder blades to help with rotation, retraction, and elevation of the shoulder blades, the very muscles used to maintain proper posture.
