Muscle imbalances can wreck your workout

Muscle imbalances can wreck your workout | Physical Therapist | Scoop.it

You know about balancing everything from your checkbook to your work life. But how about your muscles? Yes, they can become just as imbalanced as your finances can if you’re not paying attention.

 

“In terms of muscle imbalances, there are certain things you see consistently,” says Robert Gillanders , an endurance athlete and physical therapist at Sports + Spinal Physical Therapy in downtown Washington. “Women tend to lack stability and are more likely to be hyper-flexible, while men tend to lack flexibility.”

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: Keep Your Edge

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: Keep Your Edge | Physical Therapist | Scoop.it
Sports Ethics: Keep Your Edge. “I lost my edge.” Athletes and professionals mutter this when they struggle with their skills and when they begin to feel their skills eroding or when they feel competitors starting to surpass them.

Loved this article!

Michael Walsh's curator insight, October 19, 2014 9:46 AM

Great look at athletes struggling with the fact that they cant always be the best and how coaches have got them through those struggles.

If someone feels like they're losing their ethical edge, it then comes time to metaphorically step back and reevaluate.

This is a major reason I feel that ethics has went down hill due to the importance of making more money. 

Richardson, A. 's curator insight, November 16, 2014 9:06 PM

Money and epic salary and endorsement deals certainly has not enhanced and increased ethics in sports.  With millions of dollars to be earned or lost due to wins, contracts and endorsement money, athletes are playing for much more than the love of the game.  In the words of Jerry Maguire, "show me the money."

Mike Falvo's curator insight, January 19, 2015 4:29 AM

I don't think it has COMPLETELY ruined ethics in sports, but it is definitely a driving force in the decisions made on and off the "field" of sport.

Victoria Molnar's curator insight, March 13, 2014 4:44 PM

This article has some good points about powering through. It doesn't mean specific powering through it is for many situations. Basically being loyal and playing or doing things with integrity even when the plan is not going the right way. Never giving up and having the ability to make the right decisions and come out on top. Many people rely on help from team mates and coaches to teach them how to get through situations and they can base that off of their ethical and moral beliefs to find a solution.
