Off-Ice Goalie Training: Asymmetry is Normal

Off-Ice Goalie Training: Asymmetry is Normal

Maria-MountainI have seen it in almost every athlete I have ever trained, and you have probably noticed it in yourself to varying degrees: Side-to-side asymmetries.

My left hamstring is flexible; the right is tight.

I can do the front splits better with my left leg forward than I can with my right leg forward.

Have you noticed any of these patterns in yourself?  I am thinking you are nodding your head right now.

In today’s video I am going to scratch the surface of why there are some predictable patterns of asymmetry in the body and give you a few exercises that can help you get back to neutral.

Not that we are going to ‘fix’ the asymmetry – the goal is to restore your capacity to at least get back to neutral.

Happy training!
