I am sure there are many jobs out there that, like beauty therapy require a large amount of stamina but also strength in arms and back. As always i have teamed up with our amazing trainer Mimi to bring you a new fitness regime. This time to train like a therapist!
The aim is to train the full body and to build strength for certain major muscle groups including the chest, back, shoulders and legs. While working these major muscle groups you will be using your secondary muscle groups as stabilisers - your triceps, biceps, forearms, hamstrings and quads.
NOTE: The weight you pick before performing these exercises should make you feel like your last two reps are impossible to finish. This way you will know that you’ve chosen a weight that is challenging you on building strength
