The Back Workout

While most of us women are often worried about getting a smaller waistline and sexy flat tummy, let us not forget to pay attention to the back part of our upper body. I say upper back because, let’s face it ladies, we don’t need reminders in working the lower part of our back body, I mean our glutes/booties/butt, because we make a conscious effort in making sure we pay attention to them when we workout.

Our back plays a huge role in how our entire body functions, because it attaches to the hips, abdominals, chest, shoulders, and neck. Building the back muscles will benefit us in so many ways. For one definitely is it builds a better-looking body. That large muscles in your back, for example the large wing shaped muscles on the sides of your back — creates an inverted triangle shape when they are in shape making your lower body look smaller. Strong and toned back improves posture and boosts self-confidence. For those who play sports or participate in any physical activity (and you should), a strong back will improve your performance as flexible, athletic back muscles help your body to twist, turn, lift, and move through complex movements more efficiently.

Here are some of the back workout routines I do at the gym. Ladies, do not be afraid to lift weights because contrary to the belief that lifting weights heavier than those 3lbs dumbbells will make us bulky, lifting real weights builds strength, increase metabolism, lessen the effects of aging, and make us look downright sexy. Geez ladies! We unlike men, we lack testosterone! That enables men bulk up more easily. So ditch the cute dumbbells and go lift!

Personally, my upper body needs a lot of work to tone it up. It’s a challenge but it won’t hinder me in working my ass off to ensure I develop these muscles to have a stronger back improving my overall fitness level.

I work on different areas of my body daily because I believe each part of my body needs attention and specific workout to activate and build its muscles. Here’s my schedule most of the time (ideally) on a daily basis. I follow these as much as possible. I only deviate from this routine whenever I am preparing for marathons as I have a specific set of training for it.

  • Monday- Legs, Abs, Neck
  • Tuesday- Back, Shoulders
  • Wednesday- Chest, Arms, Cardio
  • Thursday- Rest / full body light workout
  • Friday- Legs, Abs, Neck
  • Saturday- Back, Shoulders
  • Sunday- Rest Day

Note: Not every exercise is appropriate for some conditions and certain back exercises may even make the problem worse if you have back pain issues. It is important to check with your doctor about which exercises will help or hinder you.

Here are some helpful information and tips that may help especially those who are first-time into condominium leasing

Leasing a condominium means that you do not need to worry about annual taxes and the maintenance of the unit. This is the responsibility of your landlord. However, this means you have very limited options in styling and adding elements in your unit.

  • Before worrying about all the legalities, know that choosing the right condominium is just the first step. Choose a unit that is safe, with security, and close recreation areas. Choose a location that will free you from the busy ways of living and the hassles of contemporary living.
  • Make sure you are signing a contract with the legal owner, or at least his authorized representative. Make sure you have your own copy of the contract and even the property title.Your initial payment should be itemize. Make sure you know what covers it. This in order to have a smooth transaction and avoid confusion at the end of the contract. Think about initial rent and advance rent.
  • Make sure you also know what is covered by your monthly payments. Typically it covers the unit rental only. Note that there are charges/bills that comes along condo living that includes monthly association dues and parking rentals if you have a car. If miscellaneous such as those are covered by your rental, ask for an acknowledgement receipt from the owner and ensure payments are properly forwarded to where and when it is due.
  • Both owner and tenant must have and sign an inventory of items that are included in the unit upon turnover to avoid confusion upon termination of rent.
  • Tenants must also make sure that the property rented is free from liens and encumbrances. That means all previous utility bills and fees have been paid. This is to ensure that the new tenant will not suffer the consequence for such non-payment through ejection or utility disconnection.
  • Be clear when the contract will start and when will it end. Another important thing is to know when the advance payment will be applied. Advance rental payments may be applied either at the beginning of the contract, or at the end if there is no more intention to renew. That would depend on the agreement of the owner and the tenant.
  • In terms of bringing Pets, that’s another provision that should be stipulated in the contract. Regulations on pets are normally imposed by the property management.
  • Unit Alterations? In condo living, residents cannot just renovate their homes as they please since Structural renovations are certainly not allowed.
  • In terms of repairs in the unit, this totally varies and depends on the agreement of the tenant and the owner. Oftentimes, contracts state that the landlord is accountable for major repairs, while the tenant undertakes the minor ones. Make sure that the specifics pertaining to repairs is clearly stipulated in the contract.

Hope all these helps. Remember to make the most of your money. Condominiums in the Philippines typically offers both selling and renting options. Primavera City offers a varied range of condominium for sale that can be easily rented out. For investors, Units may be rented and managed on behalf of the owner by its in house Property and Asset Management Team.
