💪🏾My training style is never about heavy bench press or endless deadlifts. A lot of exercises are classic but dated. They can help you build muscles and gain size, but in terms of improve your body functionality and overall physical performance, not so good. They cause injuries and make you look disproportionate. ✅Training styles like Crossfit, HIIT, Quick flow yoga, Boxing, Animal flow are the modern ways of exercise. They improve your strength, balance, flexibility and endurance by engage & discover more muscle groups in your body and practice your mindfulness. A good training routine should help you to prevent injuries, aid everyday activities and empower your mind. If you are doing the same muscle group rotations week after week like everybody else, and not feeling the above, you may need to consider a better option. What works for them may not work for you. Don’t repeat, create. ❤️😊 #crossfit #fitfam #malemodel #slefmotivation #fitguy #personaltrainer #muscle #shape #male #musculation #fit #exercise #lovefitness #gid #fitnessgoals #fitnessjourney #fitboy #selflove #instafit #lightroom #fitguys #fitnessaddict #fitmotivation #fitlife #malemodel #pt #nutritioncoach #smile
