So yesterday, I took myself through the total body workout shown above. I had every intention of running a 5K, but time just didn't allow it, so I cut things short and did 20 minutes of intervals instead. Then I worked through the major muscle groups. And as I did, I wondered—what is my favorite muscle group to train?
Legs? Wide-leg squats make me feel like a ballet dancer, but no... Abs? A strong core supports everything, and ab exercises make my middle feel whittled, but no... It's arms! Particularly biceps. I love being able to see the definition I've worked so hard to create. Now, I'm in no way trying to brag and I'm sure I don't have the best biceps on the planet—but I enjoy the fact that my biceps make my arms look strong in my favorite tank tops. And when I take the time to really push my biceps to their limit, it feels good. Plain as that.
But when it comes down to it, no reason for loving one muscle group over the other is really necessary at all. It's OK to play favorites in this case, purely for playing favorites' sake. Just remember that in the end, you have to love your entire body. Not just one part of it. But we already talked about that earlier this week, so I'll end this post right here with a
Question: What is your favorite muscle group to train?
