Muscle Imbalances

There are still too many athletes at the amateur and professional level experiencing major muscle tears and strains attributed to imbalances and biomechanical deficiencies.  For example, if you're spending most of your "leg" days at the gym on quadricep strengthening (i.e. squat rack, etc), yet neglect to target your hamstrings, you're bound to develop disproportionate strength and weaknesses.  Consquently, this can make an athlete more susceptible to injury on the sports field sooner or later. 

With that said, it's important that you allocate quality time at the gym to strengthening the agonist and antogonist muscle groups (i.e. biceps & triceps) to prevent or minimize the risk of injury. 

Stay tuned for more information on this overlooked physical training topic...
