Balancing your Mirror Muscles - 09/26/2013
 Body symmetry is exceptionally important for bodybuilding and weightlifting - but what many people don't realize is that body symmetry also effects many other things too. MUSCLE IMBALANCE = BACK PAIN For example, did you know that pregnant women develop overly strong back muscles during the pregnancy? The reason is so they can support the extra weight of a baby and all the extra water weight, and that with time this leads to back pain - even after the baby has been born. Now you might think, wait, why would they have back pain if their back is STRONGER? Shouldn't a strong back eliminate back pain? Nope, and therein lies the problem. Many people don't realize that the primary source of backpain is a loss of balance between front mirror muscles and their back muscles. Often it is directly connected on a lateral level. Examples Small pectoral muscles = upper back pain. Small abdominal muscles = lower back pain. (Especially since people often have weak lower back muscles in the first place.) The reason is because the pectorals and abs are also used for balance, and if those muscles are smaller / weaker the back muscles in the corresponding mirror muscles have to work twice as hard in order for a person to maintain their balance and posture. A person with really lax muscle mirror muscles is going to have really bad posture and lots of back pain. It is possible to have overdeveloped front torso muscles, which is exceptionally rare for the common person, but more common for bo...
