Virtually every muscle in
Virtually every muscle in your body has an opposing muscle that is performing the opposite movement. While one muscle is contracting, the opposing muscle is lengthening. Training opposing muscles equally is what keeps your body balanced.
Unfortunately, the muscles on the front of your body, like your biceps or quadriceps, receive the most exercise through daily living and often in the gym, while those opposing muscles on the back (triceps and hamstrings) receive little training leading to imbalances and eventually injury and pain. Another example, if you constantly train and strengthen your abdominals without training your lower back you will soon suffer lower back pain, poor posture and gradual curvature of the spine as your stronger “front” muscles pull against your weaker “back” muscles.
Unless you train to correct these imbalances, the dominant muscles will continue to gain strength as their opposing muscles continue to weaken.
