How to correct muscular imbalances
We all have them. They come from our lifestyle or specific hobby of choice or profession. Weight training according to the Dr Fitness USA’s principle is a very easy and safe way to begin to address and correct muscular imbalances. Use the “Rest-Pause” method. When performing an exercise that requires alternating
sides, begin with the stronger side, your weaker side will automatically want to match it. If you feel that you cannot complete the number of reps on your weaker side, before losing your form, pause the exercise, rest a few seconds and continue to complete the indicated amount s of reps to match the other side. This way you will finish strong. Before you know it, the weaker side will become stronger in order to balance out both sides! Above all keep good form at all times. Example: if it says to do the exercise 10 times, the strong arm does 10
reps easily, however the weaker arm can only do 6 reps: Solution; rest do another 4 reps which will =10 reps total to complete the set.
