I don’t care how long you’ve been working out or what genetics you’ve been blessed with…Most likely, you’ve got uneven muscles. But, in almost all cases…They CAN be fixed! I’m not just talking about SIZE differences between right and left sides. Could be STRENGTH differences. Could even be FATIGUE differences.

Having muscle imbalances is really really common. BUT…I can tell you, as a physical therapist, the repercussions of this go far beyond size, strength and fatigue!! They can lead to poor ingrained movement patterns and eventually…injury. The biggest problem? Poorly written workouts. **See the P.S. for exactly what I mean!**
Instead…train smart, thrive (and grow) by keeping your muscles in balance at all times. Follow a program designed by a REAL sports physical therapist. This video is just one example of how to do that. Hope you find it helpful and always glad to be your coach on TEAM ATHLEAN!
P.S. Talking about poorly written workouts. How’s this for an example? After reviewing an upper body workout for a very popular fitness program, I found all 180 reps in the workout internally rotated your shoulders!! Guess how many worked the external rotators to balance that out?
ZERO! Big Fat ZERO!
Yep. That’s bad, and yes…that’s unsophisticated commercial programming!
