Introducing Strength Training for my upper body.
Started working on this area of my body as advised by the very knowledgeable Matthew Mcgrath Amplify Wellness banbridge personal training, because not only is this kind of training very important for bone density during menopause but I'm beginning to develop a postural issue with my back.
Age and poor posture is causing my back to be too rounded and so I need to work my upper body, shoulders, scapula area more to straighten and strengthen.
I had no idea that this is very common amongst women & men as we age, however its correctable by doing a simple 30 mins session 2-3 times per week.
What Matthew is teaching me is suitable for any age, 50's, 60's, 70's, please do not think its too late to look after you body and change its shape, we need to keep it moving.
Being in their private gym and wellness cente felt like rehabilitation, a positive activity not a punishing one. The gym has so much to offer all.of us, all ages, all body types.
It felt so good to be conscious of my posture and helping my body work more effectively.
Here's to a straight back and stronger body 😁👍💪
However strength training can be on any part of the body, legs, arms, shoulders so I encourage you do something to build bone density, strength training is not muscle body building.
I'll keep you posted.
