Default Incorporate Weaker Muscle Exercises And The Foam Roller

Incorporate More Exercises On Training Weaker Muscles: In preparing and enhancing weight training workouts.

By doing so we will be able to lift heavier, posture will improve, more symmetry to the body… Some examples of improving weaker muscles I’d like to see happen are:

Wrist, Grip and Forearms: Weakness in the forearms and wrists will limit how hard you can work your arms and the rest of your upper body. It also would help and prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Tennis Elbow.
Wrist Curls, Reverse Wrist Curls, Wrist Rolls, Wrist Rotations, and grip strength exercises.

Back: More exercises for the lumbar extensor muscles. This will help increase strength in the lower back. Also helps with low back pain.

Knees: Working the VMO (teardrop muscle) will help with knee pain and accommodate squats and wobbling.
Terminal Knee Extensions, Peterson Step Ups and Front Foot Elevated Split Squat. Using a foam roller releases the ITB and therefore avoids lateral knee pain.

Feet, Calf’s and Ankles: Strong feet reduces injury, improves posture, as well as knee and hip function.
Arch Lift, Heel Walking, Resistance band inversion, resistance band eversion, Ankle Drops, and the many exercises for the neglected calves.

Pelvic floor: Kegel exercises perhaps? It can't hurt. Helps humiliating leaks...

Foam Roller: Improves soft tissue extensibility, injury prevention, decreases density and over-activity and perform enhancement. Exercise induces micro tears and swelling in muscles fibers, which impinge on nerves and vessels. The foam roller helps smooth out these obstructions and break down adhesion's, helping to increase blood-flow within the muscle.

Cathe can include these and other exercises to have complete all around workouts.
