Subjective Nature of Structural Balance Assessment

@CT you always encourage us to figure out what works for our own bodies. When I was off season training for ice hockey I used the basic parameters to identify “structural weaknesses”. I found the recommended exercises to improve my performance did not (i.e. the full back/front squat did not improve my skating speed and power output) but when I was pushing my sumo deadlift to the max my skating speed dramatically improved.

Have you seen this a lot where a trainer follows a prescribed structural balance test for a client and the diagnosed issues are not remedied by the recommended exercises?
