What does it mean for a workout to be “balanced”?
Injury and dysfunction stem from imbalance in some shape or form. Keeping your workouts balanced is important for the body’s resistance to injury and physical longevity.
Your training should be balanced by incorporating all the different ways your body can move: squat, push, pull, hinge, rotation, hanging, and inversion. In addition, your training should include exercises performed in the sagittal, frontal, and transverse planes.
