Leg Day

I’m on this machine today for my legs because I’m too lazy to squat (and to lunge). 3 clients cancelled for this morning so I suddenly have time to work out (and write this short post during rest periods). Maybe it’s not plain laziness, but because I’m feeling some chronic fatigue from waking up early, commuting for a total of 160minutes per day including 4km walks, and going home late to meet clients for Personal Training. Resistance machines have their value, but I usually let clients do multiple-joint and free weight exercises which are more functional. Beginners can start with weight machines until they develop a foundational muscular strength, muscular endurance, and neuromuscular control. Clients who want to build muscle also benefit from weight machines because it provides that “isolation” for a specific joint so they can focus working a muscle or muscle group. But for now I’ll stick with weight machines because having time to work out is starting to be a luxury and I’m too lazy to stack and tidy up plates.
