DO YOU HAVE A STRONGER SIDE?
MAYBE ONE LEG OR ARM THAT PERFORMS FAR BETTER IN TRAINING THAN THE OTHER SIDE?
I can guarantee you that 99% of people have muscle imbalances. Nothing in nature is symmetric, neither an apple nor our human body.
However, the question we need to ask is: How do I detect muscle imbalances? And how can I decrease those imbalances with proper training?
If you overlook imbalances and train the left the same as the right, the stronger side will always take over. Our body seeks to choose the easier way, not the better way. Thus, it will choose the stronger leg or arm muscles because activating those does not require as much focus and energy.
Over time, the stronger side will get even stronger, while the other one gets weaker. This imbalances can lead to bad posture and chronic pain, as it will translate much more force on our joints than they could handle.
Today, I will give you some tips to detect muscle imbalances in your body and how to train to decrease them. I have been battling this for 6 years and I am excited to share some of my knowledge with you!
