Summary:
In order to maximize training, all muscles need to be functioning properly. This special book/DVD package explains how muscles develop imbalances, how specific testing can pinpoint and assess dysfunction, how to determine the risk/benefit ratio of different exercises, and how to develop a program to maximize muscle function and strength. A detailed presentation of the most efficient exercise technique for the 32  Read more...
