Happy Workout Wednesday!
We are continuing our Strengthening Challenge workout series to create a strong, but SEXY body.
As mentioned in last weeks post, it is vital that women, especially as we age, work on strengthening our body.
An intelligent workout design will take into account all the muscles in your body to ensure you are creating balance.
Here is one of the exercises: The Stability Ball Rollout.
If you like this exercise, you’ll love the rest!
Creating Balance In The Body
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 vertical 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.
