Grooving Movement Patterns Before Loading

Blog Jan 24, 2011

I often explain to athletes that our strength and conditioning program is much like the Tortoise and the Hare analogy.  If we get overly concerned with adding weight and progressing before we have the proper movement patterning, than we're essentially adding fitness on top of dysfunction. Remember, weight will always follow good movement patterning but good movement patterns will never blindly follow adding weight.
