I wasn’t happy about that at all, as my appearance showed this lack of muscle in particular regions
I’ve been training as a gymnast since I was 3-years-old – to give some perspective, I’m in my mid thirties now. I was growing up and continued to progress and compete, but I found my way through the various levels throughout school and picked up a university scholarship thanks to my talent! I competed and did fairly well in school, so imagine my surprise when I was invited to become an Olympian! I simply loved the sport though, and working on modern levels in addition to keeping physically fit was what I enjoyed so much about it. I’ve graduated from college since then, and now work at this lovely firm in town, but I still actively work on my gymnastics skills! I’ve noticed that our sport targets honestly unique muscles, while others are being regularly neglected. I did all this work for fitness that was directly related to gymnastics, and in these workouts I did nothing but handstands, walkovers, back handsprings, tucks and more. Naturally, my thighs, triceps in addition to abdominal muscles were consistently under stress! My biceps and other parts of my body, however? Largely ignored. I wasn’t happy about that at all, as my appearance showed this lack of muscle in particular regions. I explained my situation to this personal trainer, and she set up a more complete exercise regimen for me to follow. She’s included a ton of low-weight, high-repetition weight training. I actually despise this kind of training, but I can’t argue with the results!
