Correcting Muscle Imbalances
Nothing is more upsetting than working hard in the gym and ending up with muscle imbalances. Imagine putting all the effort and hard work and having a muscle imbalance as your reward— it's terrible, but it's inevitable.
What Is Muscle Imbalance?
Muscle imbalances happen when one group of muscles is stronger or larger than the opposite muscle group. Suppose one muscle is weaker and the other is hyperactive. In that case, it pushes your body into improper postures, such as hunched shoulders or a lower back that is overly arched, limiting the joint range of motion and making particular muscles stiff.
Muscle imbalances are most common in parts of the body that are intended to be flexible, such as the hips, shoulders, and thoracic spine, although they may occur practically everywhere.
Moreover, these inconsistencies in muscle function can hinder your gym activities and result in severe injury.
Now that you understand muscle imbalances, here are proven easy ways to correct muscle imbalance.
