LADIES‼️ Don’t copy your BFs workout ‼️
Seen a girl at the gym today in Bali Training with her BF.
I 💛 couples that train together.. check out @fitmissretreats new blog ‘Why Couples That Train Together, Stay Together’.
This girl was training like her BF. She didn’t really have much confidence in the gym and just followed his instruction. -
Which seen her doing dumbbell shrugs, questionable lat raises with a weight too heavy and many other exercises that I’m sure did nothing for the areas she actually wanted to work.
I looked over at one point to see her squishing her lower belly, touching her triceps, and pointing at her bum. -
For anyone that doesn’t know, shrugs work the traps. Most people already have over-developed traps and under-developed lats.
It’s hard to watch as a trainer because you want to help everyone (and everyone in this gym needs help!).
So here is a post for all those girls that train with the BF because they lack confidence to go alone.
1) Stick to machine based exercises if your inexperienced.
2) If it feels heavy, looks ugly or makes you feel uncomfortable... stop. Move on to something else.
3) If you want to work the booty.. leave the shrugging for your BF and find a leg press, cable machine, box for step ups and take a band with you ALWAYS.
4) Ask your BF what exercises work the areas you want to work on. If he doesn’t know search for a friendly face that’s smiling at you (that’s usually me 🙋♀️) and ask for some help! -
Josh and I train together. Mostly we do the same exercises, albeit a different weight. Then occasionally I want to do something that he doesn’t and we part ways for a bit to do our own thing. -
Is this you 👆🏻 send me a DM I’d love to help and shoot you some exercises and videos you can do at the gym
