Good Form on a Bad Exercise

You can’t get your body to do what it can’t do… unless you teach your muscles how to do it.

If your body doesn’t have the contractile potential to move a certain way (correctly & efficiently) then it will compensate and use other muscles to achieve a certain function or range of motion, resulting in dysfunctional & suboptimal movement patterns.

From the simplest of exercises to the more advanced sports scenarios, we believe this is the leading cause of injuries and chronic pain. From dysfunctional movement on the tennis court to repetitive movement patterns done incorrectly and lead to wear and tear on your body over time.

The precision required to reprogram your mechanics and prevent dysfunction is more than any “functional” group class or pain management program provides. It’s requires more than fatiguing a group of muscles, but coordinating your brains connection with how your muscles function (or don’t) to move your structure.

The next time you’re exercising, consider how you’re moving and if that movement is reinforcing the posture you’re already stuck in, or if it’s developing new muscles to build a resilient structure. Hint; it goes deeper than just having good form on a bad exercise.

This is why our training dives deeper into the pattern of the exercise and the way you’re performing the exercise. Exercise patterns that go against your natural movement patterns send the wrong message to your muscles and how they need to work. Learning to strengthen your body for the way it moves will result in a structure that’s not limited to certain ranges of motion, because every muscle tissue is potentiated when exercise aligns with your biological blueprint.
