    • You have been weight training for more than a year. You look in the mirror, and youmust be telling yourself, “Damn, that is one sexy beast right there!” But with a fewlighting adjustments, the flaws begin to appear, and some of those might just haunt youfor a long time. Sometimes, our mind sees what it chooses to see. But the glaring truthis right there in front of you!Isn‟t it frustrating sometimes, when you‟ve tried all chest exercises, but you just can‟tseem to fill that inner part of your upper chest. You just envy those Hollywood buffs withtheir shirt on, and you see their „man-cleavage‟ exposed on their collars. How aboutthem big guns? They seem humongous when flexed, but when extended, your bicepsare just 3 inches short off your joint, and your triceps seem way too far from your elbow.Filling in those gaps between major muscle groups aren‟t all about isolation exercises.We are so used to 3 sets of 10 reps of breathing out as you lift the weight up, and thenbreathe in while you put the weight back down; lather, rinse, repeat.I hate to break it to you, but there‟s more to working out than the same old routine. Infact, bringing variety into your exercises not only keeps you interested and motivated,but your muscles will also react differently, thus the term “muscle confusion”. Withmuscle confusion, your muscle cells will stimulate more effectively and react better bybecoming bigger.Now, there are muscles in our body that are usually untapped in weight training. Someof them you can see in professional athletes, but you just can‟t see it on your own body.One primary example is the “boxer‟s muscle”, which is developed by boxers due to theircontinuous development of that specific muscle during training, thus named after them.Swimming is another great example of a sport where you use a lot of muscles in yourbody, and not in the Home gym.You‟re probably thinking right now that if some of those muscles cannot be developed inweight training, then how do I fill the gaps within those parts? Great question! Peopletend to overlook functional training in favor of free weights, but the best way to build acomplete set of muscles is by incorporating functional training into your daily routine!And that includes building those muscles on your inner upper pecs and triceps‟ heads.Follow-up question: where can you find a functional trainer? With the PowertecFunctional Trainer, not only can you work on your “missing” muscles and fill those gapsin, but you can actually do it AT HOME! And I bet you have a lot more to work on, so wewill give you a few pointers on how to fill in those gaps with the Functional Trainer,based on common queries asked by our loyal fan base.
    • Here are a few commonly-missing muscles, and the answers to each problem: Inner Chest As they say, the bench press is the king of upper body exercises. Sometimes, we make it a priority to improve strength gains in this exercise for us to lift heavier, and for our chest to grow bigger. However, no matter how much we train our chest, most of us notice that huge valley in the middle of our chest, especially if there‟s a spotlight above our heads. While incline dumbbell presses can reduce the gap in between, you can still see a small space still within that area, and it just frustrates you sometimeshow you could fill that hole.With the Powertec Functional Trainer, you may include these exercises during yourchest workouts: Chest Press (3 x 8 reps) PecFlyes (3 x 8 reps) Cable Crossover (3 x 8 reps)Boxer’s MuscleThat cluster of muscles lying beside our lats(LatissimusDorsi) on our rib cage is called theboxer‟s muscle (Serratus Anterior). The muscle iscalled such, because it is developed by pulling thescapula forward and around the rib cage, whichusually occurs when you throw a punch. As youcan see during traditional boxing weigh-ins theday before the fight, the combatants flex theirmuscles, and you could see that ab-like muscles
    • under their arms. Unless you punch with all your might every time you hit the Homegym, it would be very unlikely to grow boxer‟s muscles. You may enrol boxing lessons,but it takes years and hundreds of dollars for those to develop.Using the Functional Trainer, you can make your Serratus Anterior show up by addingthese exercises with your favoritelat workouts: LatPulldown (3 x 8 reps) Wide-grip Pullover (3 x 8 reps) Functional Trainer Punches (3 x 15 reps each arm)Tricep Lateral HeadSometimes, we wish for a better body without even trying; or in other words, withouteven flexing. We envy those who just chilling on the side, minding their own business,and still see those arm muscles seemingly flexed all the time. The tricep lateral head isalso one of the more difficult muscles to develop. Good thing, the Functional Trainer canhelp you out with these tricep workouts: Reverse-grip One-arm TricepPulldowns (3 x 8 reps) Bent-over Tricep Extension (3 x 8 reps) Tricep Pushdowns (3 x 8 reps)Loin of ApolloThe Loin of Apollo is that V-shaped muscle that yousee from your hips extending all the way to downyour pelvic area. This is probably the most difficultlook to achieve, as you need disciplined diet andcontinuous exercise to get one of these. Sometimes,doing simple ab exercises are not sufficient for thatmuscle to appear. What you need are effectiveoblique workouts with enough resistance for your“Loin” to be more prominent. The PowertecFunctional Trainer can actually give you that moredefined V-shape on your gut with these workouts: Underhand Swings (3 x 15 reps each side) Overhead Swings (3 x 15 reps each side) Seated Twist (3 x 15 reps each side)
    • So there you have it! Muscles you can only grow more with the Powertec FunctionalTrainer. Now, we‟re not saying these workouts cannot be done with free weights orother Home gym equipment, but the Functional Trainer can builds those certainmuscles not found in any other workouts more effectively. While dumbbells can give youas much freedom in angles and ranges of motion, it can only provide you verticalresistance. With the Home Gym Functional Trainer, you can go up and down, side toside with all your exercises!Powertec is a trusted brand in Weight Training and Fitness Home Gym Equipmentbased out of Los Angeles.
