Have you decided to review the way you train? Forget the celebrated six pack and awe-inspiring biceps for the moment. Take care of the forgotten muscles that are so often left out, i.e. the ones you cannot see. They too need to be exercised!
Do three sets of 15 repetitions for each of the fitness exercises. Take a one-minute break between each set.
Enjoy your workout!
At the gym, many of us work on the same muscles all the time, forgetting to exercise the parts of the body that would benefit from being activated.
It is also true that in our everyday life we often stimulate our anterior muscles – quadriceps, biceps, and chest muscles – while others are constantly inactive.
Let's help our body regain its muscle balance with 4 simple exercises to work on the forgotten muscles!
Do you know about the latissimi dorsi?
These are the large muscles that form under the arms and descend in a V shape along the spine and down to the lower back. These are the muscles used to stabilise the trunk.
In our everyday activities, we tend to use the lower part of the back, e.g. when I pick up an object on the ground, rather than bending my knees and lowering myself with my back straight, I lean forwards. These are simple movements that we repeat on a daily basis without adopting the right posture. Hence the need to exercise and strengthen the lower back muscles! This simple exercise works on the ex-tensor muscles of the lower back.
No idea what the muscles of the gluteus medius are? And no wonder, they are relatively inactive.
They are the muscles just beneath the hips, on the outside. For example, the gluteus medius is used in everyday life when you are in a static position for maintaining your balance.
Many activities rely on twisting and rotating the trunk. To avoid injury, it is important to work on the muscles involved in this type of movement.
