Training is more than a number on a scale! Posture and correcting muscular imbalances are so important in not just your physique, but in managing tightness, pain, enabling maximum power output and putting yourself in the best position to build strength.
The trouble is we are always on phones, computers, hunched over desks etc and we create poor posture. This creates a tight chest, tight front delts, tight lats and weak external rotators, lower traps, rear delts and so on.
We then make matters worse by focusing primarily on Bench Press, Pull Ups, Shoulder Presses and other big internal rotator based exercises without the balance of the ‘boring’ exercises such as trap raises, rear delt work, serratus strengthening etc.
Those last few exercises are exactly what I focused on first with my client Brodie during his 12 week block. He built up the neglected muscle groups first, which allowed us to then properly hit bigger upper body movements and build his strength.
