My posterior chain workout today
My workout today was for my posterior chain and is one of my favourite days in the gym, although it is hard work and I can’t usually walk properly for a while afterwards I love it. Training for me is one of my favourite times of the day as I get to turn my brain of for a little while and just focus on movement. I usually train on my own and although this means I have not got anyone shouting at me to lift more or push a few more reps out I really like the focus it goes me. Being a personal trainer means I spend most of my time one on one with clients so my training sessions are a good time for me to compose myself and focus my attentions on what I am doing and not others. This is a very necessary part of my day and without it I would be lost. I usually train for about an hour or so and then grab some food and continue my day, I look look forward to my workout all morning so its a real treat when lunchtime comes around.
