HOW WE ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS
Improve Range of Motion
Muscle imbalances may be limiting your range of motion. When one muscle is stronger than its opposing muscle, you have an imbalance. For instance, if you do push-ups or bench presses daily, but never do rows, pull-ups, or other upper body pulling movements, there's a good chance your chest is far stronger than your back, and you likely have a muscle imbalance. You may also have a muscle imbalance created from tightness caused by prolonged shortening of a muscle. For example, sitting hunched over a desk all day can cause the muscles in your chest to shorten and become tight allowing for less range of motion in your upper body. These types of imbalances over time can change the way your body moves and cause you to feel pain.
Specialized exersizes support Myofascial Release. To understand Myofascial Release you must understand fascia. Fascia is a web of connective tissue that runs throughout your body. From the top of your head to the bottom of your feet, it connects everything inside you, surrounding organs, muscles, and bones. Myofascial Release is specifically targeting the fascia around and within the muscles. This fascia or connective tissue tightens up through the stresses put on your body throughout your life. Releasing this tightness or tension within the muscles can allow for greater range of motion within your body. This greater range of motion within the musculature can have profound effects on pain and muscle imbalances. Using myofascial release on the identified tight muscles can help to restore the balance in your body.
Focus on Core Strength
Movement requires core strength. To lift anything you start off with a strong and stable core. And by core I do not mean your abdominals as most people may believe. Your core is made up of everything in the midsection of your body, from your diaphragm to your pelvic floor; your abdominals, obliques and transverse abdominis, and more. Having these muscles work together will build the core strength needed to perform many movements with less chance for injury. Most of the time when we move, we move our arms and legs around a stable core. Strengthen and stablize your core and everything else moving around it becomes stronger.
Design Proper Workouts
Once you identify your muscle imbalances, selecting the correct exercises to fix those imbalances is imperitive. Make sure to take into account opposing muscles, each must be close to equal in strength to help balance the body. Pushing exercises, i.e. bench press or push-ups, are what most people focus on, because they can see that when they look in the mirror. For each pushing exercise, you should incorporate a pulling exercise, i.e. pull-ups or rows. Same with your legs. For every leg extension exercise you should incorporate a leg curl exercise. Doing this will help to keep your body in balance and help to prevent injury. Let me design the workout that will help you with muscle imbalances and get you moving again.
