On to the workout!
Benefits of Training Back Muscles
Your back is responsible for protecting your spine and holding your body upright. Working those back muscles can help improve your posture and take pressure off your spine.
Stronger back muscles will also lead to a stronger core – bring on the abs! With a stronger core, you can do so much more! You can master all of those fun yogi moves, lift heavier weights in the gym, or at least look like a goddess while trying to do them!

Stretching & Yin Yoga
Make sure to stretch after every weight training workout! Your muscles have been contracting during every rep. Now they need some lengthening! There must be a yin to every yang and weightlifting is definitely yang!
What the difference between yin and yang movements? Yin movements are more passive using static movements like stretching, while yang movements are more active using dynamic movements like lifting weights or performing bodyweight exercises.
Stretching & Yin Yoga will help with the recovery of your muscles, especially when performed daily. So make sure to take at least 5 minutes at the end of your strength or cardio workout to just stretch 🙂
