Ladies, are you skipping chest day?

By COACH K

Your answer should be

Mondays are international chest day.  Which means good luck finding a bench or bar at the gym. While men anxiously await their next chest day, I haven’t seen or spoken with too many women who even train chest.  I have also been guilty from time to time to neglect this very important part of my body.  As women, we often get caught up in building our booties or cutting our abs.  BUT THIS MUST STOP! 
 

Your chest muscles are integral to good posture and mitigating future back pain.

 An added perk (pun intended) is that working your pectorals – the muscle under a woman’s breasts- will add a little extra perk to your breasts!  

 
Your chest muscles are a big part of your every day activities.  For instance holding that heavy bag of groceries or your child are just two out of hundreds of instances you use these important muscle.  So while it may seem you are using your back and biceps, your chest is doing a lot of the heavy lifting.  And let’s not forget, neglecting your chest will result in under used, tight muscle that could start pulling your shoulders forward.  Forward leaning shoulders or hunching shoulders, also known as bad posture, is NOT a good look and can lead to “phantom” aches and pains that can put you on the injury bench and make daily chores hard to do.
 
So the next time you’re thinking about skipping chest day, DON’T! Feel free to throw a few chest exercises to the end of your leg day or create a new back and chest day! Dumb bell press and chest flies are a good place to start!
 

 

Who We Be

Hi Team Elite! It’s been a few weeks now and you may be thinking “this material is awesome, but um, who are you?!” or maybe you’re not.  Either way, I thought it would be nice to take a second and tell you a little more about the humans behind the computer – us.  Justin and I are both business partners and life partners.  We are happily engaged and so ready to take the journey into forever.

By League Elite

 

We decided to start League Elite Performance/League Elite Online because it’s what we love.  We truly believe living a healthy life will lead to more positivity and happiness.  In fact, it’s scientifically proven that exercise releases endorphins that make us feel happy.  And when we are happy, we treat people differently and make better, more positive decisions.  Also when you’re healthy, you just feel better, trust us.  But beyond that, we have both been through this journey and want to share with others everything we have learned along the way.  That includes so much more than just physical fitness.  It’s the emotional ups and downs that you will go through on your journey to a healthier and happier life.

We practice what we preach.  We are far from perfect and we have our share of set backs and bumps in the road, but we are committed to living each day better than the last.  That’s what we want for our clients and even those of you who are not our clients!  Everyone deserves a happy and healthy life.

Neither of us were born into fitness (is anyone?) nor were we born into wealth.  We hustle every day to make ourselves better.  This attitude has brought us success in fitness and subsequently in business.  We will always try our best to provide you with the best and most up-to-date information out there and help you achieve your success.  Whatever that may be.
