I think it’s safe to say that most people have muscle imbalances. An imbalance is an overactive muscle on one side of a joint and a weak, underactive muscle on the opposite side. Because one side is weak, other muscles have to kick in to help and this creates what is known as muscle compensations.  The remedy for this is to inhibit and stretch the overactive muscle and then strengthen the underactive muscle. Imbalances can be caused by repetitive movements, sitting all day, past injuries and even by exercising with poor form.

What Is Corrective Exercise Anyway?All of our muscles have a proper length in which they work best. Poor posture, repetitive movement, past injury…they all play a role in altering this optimal length.

So I came across a video by a couple of physical therapists that explained how stretching is a waste of time unless it addresses a specific issue. These guys were thorough, had a bullet point reference on the matter and explained each point clearly. While I somewhat agree with the science of it all, I vehetmently disagree on the holistic side of it.

If you spend a great deal of time sitting, you get what is called "Gluteal Amnesia". In other words, your butt forgets how to work properly. Not only that, your hamstrings have to pick up the slack and they become dysfunctional possibly leading to hamstring strains.

My Observations and Thoughts
 Train Your Body Not Your Ego!by Bill Ross One of the biggest mistakes that is made in the fitness world is lifting to impress the ego, rather than lifting for health and wellness. What I am talking about is trying to lift weight that is completely too heavy, as well as, trying to perform cardio like they are 18 again.
