We all want to work our ‘mirror muscles’ and get them looking toned and defined. After all, we see our abs, chest, arms and thighs more than any other part of our body. But are you actually worsening your physique by concentrating too much attention on these mirror muscles?
The problem is that your whole body is a unit, and should be worked and exercised as such. Your muscles work like a series of cables and pulleys and if you overwork one area problems occur.
So if for example you work your chest and never work your upper back, you will never achieve the physique and the ‘look’ that you want.
If your chest muscles are constantly worked, they become tight and your shoulder joint is pulled forward. This means your chest muscles will end up looking saggy rather than toned and defined.
So if this is what you are currently doing, you need to exercise you upper back muscles in order to make you chest look more toned and defined.
The same principle works for other muscle groups such as your abs. If you constantly work just your abs and never your lower back your stomach muscles will become overworked and will not look how you want it to.
Today’s Takeaway – Don’t just work on the ‘mirror muscles.’ The other muscles that you perhaps don’t see as much play just as important a role.
