Eliminating Muscle Imbalance

Your Squat Workout should hit every plane and multiple force vector to ensure you eliminate injuries caused by muscle imbalance

So many squat workouts follow one direction. They use only 1 force direction (usually vertical) and only hit one plane of motion. Continually repeated, this creates muscle imbalance and muscle inflexibility which leads to injury.

To avoid injury you have to change up your workout exercise patterns and the direction of forces. This will ensure smaller muscle stabilization and different recruitment patterns are used.

The following squat workout does all of this by combining a 13″ Dynamic Stabilizer Band with an attached 41″ Quantum band and free weights. Together this combination allows you to hit multiple planes while applying multiple force vectors that the body has to learn to deal with.
