Important Exercises Trainers May Forget to Teach Women

When you are working out with your Coogee personal trainer you can start lauding yourself that you have already taken a huge step towards fitness. If you are a woman you must be aware that there are certain muscle groups in your body that you tend to overuse. The workout you do should include several exercises that target these problem zones. Learn about exercises which your trainer might have forgotten to teach you.

Wall angels to strengthen your Trapezius

All those hours of lugging around a super heavy purse filled with everything from your laptop to lipstick will take a toll on your neck and shoulder muscles (trapezius). Do the wall angel exercise to counteract the damage. Stand with your feet wide apart and keep your back against a solid wall. Your arms should be extended out towards the side with the elbows bent at an angle of 90 degrees with the palms facing forward. Your next step will be to snake your arms upwards while keeping the rest of the body in a fixed position.

Cobra moves to enhance your back

Women frequently complain of back pain. If you have felt your back muscles aching then you can try out the cobra moves. You can even ask your personal trainer Coogee to demonstrate this exercise for you. Lie face down on the floor with your legs extended and the toes pointed outwards. Your palms should be kept straight on the floor. Make sure your shoulder blades are squeezed tightly together and then pressed downwards from the ears. You can then keep extending your spine and give your arms and chest gradual lifts while keeping your hands from the floor. Your feet should be kept touching the floor all the time.

Prevent ACL injuries by the tube walk

You will need a small resistance loop for doing this exercise. Just bend your knees and learn to sit back into your hips. Now try stepping sideways up to 15 times and make sure that the band is tensed all throughout. Make sure that your body is in the quarter squat position and your buns should feel the pressure. Once you master this exercise you can do it at home even if your Coogee boot camp trainer doesn’t practice it at the boot camp.


Strengthen your rotators by the plank exercise

Fitness boot camps Coogee might forget teaching this exercise to you but you need to master the side plank exercise if you wish to build upper body strength. Keep both legs extended behind your body and stand with about a hip’s distance between your two feet. This position should be held for a minimum of ten seconds after which all the body weight should be shifted on the other arm. Repeat the entire set of movements once again. Learn to do at least 3 sets of this exercise at one workout session and you will see a lot of difference in your upper body strength. Check out
