Vertimax Trainer

Social Share Toolbar

Here I have my client doing some resistance training with Vertimax Trainer. Resistance training will build power and explosiveness in your lower body so you can move quickly. The leg muscles work against the resistance of the bands and every part of both the concentric and eccentric part of the exercise has resistance, resulting in better range of motion strength and more complete stimulation. This activates the fast-twitch muscle fibres in the hamstrings, quads, glutes and core muscles to help you increase your speed, explosive power and balance. Resistance training also will boost stamina, flexibility, range of motion and balance. ‪#‎resistancetraining‬ ‪#‎vertimax‬ ‪#‎explosivepower‬ ‪#‎legmuscles‬ ‪#‎resistance‬‪#‎speed‬ ‪#‎instagram‬ ‪#‎fitness‬ ‪#‎stamina‬ ‪#‎balance‬ ‪#‎gymlife‬ ‪#‎gym‬‪#‎mgmmarbella‬ ‪#‎workout‬ ‪#‎PersonalTrainer‬ ‪#‎training‬ ‪#‎fitlife‬ ‪#‎fitspo‬‪#‎eatclean‬ ‪#‎health‬ ‪#‎fit‬ ‪#‎motivation‬ ‪#‎healthy‬ ‪#‎fitspiration‬ ‪#‎marbella‬ ‪#‎getfit‬‪#‎justdoit‬ ‪#‎gains‬ ‪#‎trainhard‬ ‪#‎fitfam‬
