Stop and think

Why do we persist in prescribing exercises that isolate individual muscles? Instead, we should be focusing on the coordination of movements and muscle synergies that involve those muscles.

What is important in human movement is how everything is integrated into the kinetic chain to produce smooth, rhythmic flowing movement. Lest we forget: strength training is coordination training with appropriate resistance. Isolating individual muscles just creates neural confusion. Training movements not muscles gives you more bang for buck in terms of efficient use of training and biomechanical efficiency.
