11/14/12-Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 14. November 2012 15:59
 I have received some critical comments from viewers about my workout video's, particularly my chest press video.  I went and met with a well respected trainer to go over my exercise style.  After viewing the video, John stressed that the issue with 'my style' that is being criticised, could involve the camera angle vs. where my bench was sitting.  He encouraged me to try raising my incline bench to 35 degree instead of being flat (to target the pectoralis muscles rather than the delts).  When you take the barbell off the rack, and your grip is wider than shoulder-width apart, raise your arms over your chest.  Lower the barbell slowly and controlled until the bar hovers above the chest.  Return to starting position and repeat
I will be filming new exercise video's soon, and I'll keep a more critical eye to my technique and how it translates onto film. 
As a mom, and not a certified trainer, I listen to people I've hired, read about techniques in magazines and on the web, and try to encourage you, the reader, to do your best!
