I was re-reading the Beginning Weight Training
series and the following paragraph popped out at me.
From Beginning Weight Training Part 2
In a related vein and this is something that will be far outside the scope of this article is the fact that, as often as not, beginning strength training needs to address the massive imbalances that are often caused by our modern life. Folks who sit all day at a computer/in a cubicle or do various and sundry jobs often enter the weight room with strength and/or flexibility imbalances that need to be corrected. Pelvic tilt issues, shoulder rounding issues, neck issues and others are common as a function of what most of us do all day long and early training is a good place to address these.
However, addressing all of them in any detail in this article would be impossible; in Part 3 Iím going to make the (probably incorrect assumption) that no corrective work need be done.
I would be very interested in reading an article by Lyle that listed the common imbalances new trainees often walk into the weight room with and the beginnings of how to go about addressing them.
