I learned a long time ago that movement – efficient movement – is the key to sustainable performances over time. Notice how I didn’t say great performances. In truth some of the best athletes in the world have horrendous movement patterns, but are still capable of superhuman performances. Sorry, sometimes you can’t compete with genetics. That’s not to say that it wouldn’t be worthwhile for the great athletes to address proper movement – Tiger Woods will still pursue changes in his stroke. For great athletes, you have to determine if the rewards outweigh the risks of correcting a movement pattern. For the rest of us mere mortals, it’s safe to move forward with correcting the inefficiency or asymmetry. The good news is that you can correct movement problems through a multitude of training modalities. Some issues require a clinical setting while others can be dealt with by learning fundamental lifting patterns under the guidance of a qualified instructor.
Some of us are still actively competing in sports while others are competing in the game of life. Consider letting SPARC take you to that next level through Functional Strength Training.
