Happy Workout Wednesday!
Thank You for stopping by my page. We are continuing our Strengthening Challenge workout series to create a strong, but SEXY body.
It is vital that women, especially as we age, work on strengthening our body. We want create a solid foundation to preform daily routines well. If we don’t look after ourselves, we will find our weak body susecptible to injury and sickness.
An intelligent workout design will take into account all the muscles in your body to ensure you are creating balance.
How To Create Balance In The Body
Full-Body-Licious and Curvalicious (as well as the workouts of this blog) focuses on creating balance between the muscle and joints. Incorporating stability muscles, along-side bigger muscle groups, is vital for proper joint, tendon, and opposing muscle strength.
An opposing muscle is better stated as a muscle antagonist. The muscle that you are working is the agonist. The antagonist is in opposition.
In general, each primary muscle group is either a push muscle group or a pull muscle group:
- Push Muscles – muscles that contract as the weight is pushed away from the body.
- Pull Muscles – muscles that contract as the weight is pulled toward the body.
Today I have a horizontal Push and Pull workout for you to try.
Unfortunately, I was unable to film this workout but by clicking on each exercise below, you can see how to execute the technique properly. As always, if you have any questions please post them below.
