Focus On Training Movement Instead Of Muscle

Focus On Training Movement Instead Of Muscle

  1. Which muscle group should you train more of?
  2. Is the focus of your training targeting the improvement of your functional movement?
  3. Are you programming your training for smarter gains? 
  4. Is your training making you more injury prone, or more resistant to injury? 

For the most part your focus should shift from worrying about training muscle groups to training movement patterns. Having been in the fitness business for over 17 years I can say that most people develop movement dysfunction because of poor movement, improper lifting technique, and bad exercise selection based on their individual needs.
