It’s true, none of us are “perfect;” we all have some sort of imbalances, I’m sure.
However, that doesn’t mean we should not strive to become more balanced. Think about squatting: Your right leg is stronger, so you constantly shift the weight to this side. Your right knee, hip, and low back will all take more of a beating in the long run. If it doesn’t lead to an acute injury, it could most definitely lead to a chronic one.
Like always, just because something CAN lead to injury doesn’t mean it will, but I’m always trying to minimize injury risk while striving to optimize performance.
Conor, my point exactly!
Mike, is there a reason why “balance” is so important? I remember Mel Siff mentioning that it’s pretty normal for one limb to be stronger than the other. [/quote]
