Dr. Joe’s Tip of the Month - Quality vs. Quantity

Jul 12, 2012

 Dr. Joe’s Tip of the Month

Quality vs. Quantity

 

Always, always, always focus on the quality of your movement patterns (technique/biomechanics). Rushing through any exercise or rehab, without assuring movement quality is just as bad as selecting poor exercises.  You are essentially strengthening your compensatory patterns and fostering poor muscle memory. In the long run, doing this will feed into poor motor patterns, leading to tissue breakdown and injury!

 

Remember this next time you or a friend are performing an exercise with poor technique…correct it! People who move better, are more efficient and simply feel better.

 

Quality functional movements are essential to truly enhance both athletic and daily human performance.

 

 

“Training is Athletic, Not Cosmetic”
