Most underrated (and untrained) muscles?

  1. Most underrated (and untrained) muscles?


    As the titles says what do you guys think?

    Personally I think neck and forearms are the most neglected and underrated muscles.

    The last 2 weeks I have been training my neck 3 times a week (weighted flexion/extension, left/right rotation with a band) and every day at work using hand grips 200 reps (4x50) plus a bit of equipment that allows me to curl and flex the wrist . (office job)

    I am starting to notice my posture is improving and that my shoulders and tennis elbow arent hurting anymore.

    I also know the serratus anterior is often neglected and not properly trained, what are your areas and how do you add exercises into your daily or workout routine to fix them?

    Yep agree, my physio when I saw one said mine were a bit underdeveloped compared to everything else , she suggested clams and some other band exercises involving lying on your side and raises the leg up like those pilates videos and also on your stomach doing the same... does that sound about right?

    Also had exercises for my lower trap/rhomboids;

    That helped me alot.

    I know calves get neglected a lot, but do you think it plays a major part in negatively effecting the body?

    For the calves yes. Just as often as we donít strengthen them we donít take the time to stretch them either. This throws off our biomechanics and can begin a complete chain of issues up the knee and hip.

  7. Rear delts and hamstrings. Hamstrings should get twice the work as the quads.

  8. For your average gym goer that’s isn’t focused on bodybuilding or athletic pursuits the entire posterior chain is generally underdeveloped. Same goes for the bro’s who only train what the can see.

  9. Training the core is key and often overlooked but it's boring AF.

    My former partner in Chicago trains Muay Thai Kick Boxers, and they start with the core for strength and balance. This helps prevent injury and gives you a strong base to build from. His guys grow big muscles.

    You're often doing it with light warm up sets concentrating on your breathing and form.
    Which brings me to another overlooked which isn't a muscle but... Breathing. Exhale on Exertion, Inhale on Relaxation, and don't stress your face muscles. It makes a big difference, as opposed to holding your breath, or reversing the two.

    The things we forget we should be doing, or are doing but take for granted.

    Yeah definitely...there are so many chest and arm only guys...maybe theyíll do a couple lay pull downs but I agree with this 100%
