Too much ‘Push’ not enough ‘Pull’!!!


When it comes to losing weight, boosting fitness and improving body composition, there’s lots of focus on cardio (in my opinion too much!). Weight training is slowly getting the credit it deserves (but still not enough!). Those who do lift weights well done, your onto a winner, especially if you perfect techniques and keep at it.

One thing I see all too often is people spending all their time training the mirror muscles, you know like the chest, thighs and abs! But what about the rear? The posterior chain of muscles like the glutes, back and hamstrings which are responsible for your posture, and which if trained properly can give you a well rounded, aesthetically pleasing physique.
