Compensation And Its Ugly Head

Whenever you focus on a muscle group more so than the one who compliments it, there is always the chance of a muscle compensation to occur.

Example : Focusing more on your quadriceps than your hamstrings.

This would most likely lead to the body relying more and more on the quadriceps in multiple movement patterns and daily functions than the hamstrings in an even balance. Leading to over-developed and overactive quadriceps and under-active and underdeveloped hamstrings.

Key Takeaway : Always attempt to keep everything in balance.
