I just spent some time looking into this topic as it never occurred to me and it seems all muscular imbalance injury articles have some correlation to a sport. I don’t compete in any sports nor do I plan on doing so. I am only in the gym for pure aesthetics and health reasons. Don’t see how I could even stumble upon a minor injury let alone a “severe” one so a little curious how you inferred that.[/quote]
well that’s because sports involve running, jumping, etc… those jerking-type movements are when muscular imbalances are really brought to light, resulting in injury.
if im not mistaken, it’s because females are more quad-dominant (in addition to the Q angle formed at their hips) which makes them more prone to ACL and meniscus tears.
being quad-dominant is not a good thing…
but sure, just for the sake of argument, if you are able to go through life without ever running, jumping, or slipping on anything, etc… then you may be able to avoid injury from only training your quads. but you may find that your knees do not appreciate the muscular imbalance.
this is really a silly topic I can’t believe you are having a hard time understanding this
