Why the Order of your Exercises matters

You want to build muscles and you pick some weights up and do some exercises that you found somewhere in the internet. You are excited because exercise is good for you and the instructor looks fit and confident. It doesn't feel quite great afterwards. Yes, movement is great for us, we need it! Now, we are all stuck in different postures which means that we might benefit from different exercises to help regain proper alignment. Additionally when knowing what muscles we need to activate to help with better alignment we will benefit from first quieting down those other muscles that are working more than needed. This is where using the corrective exercise continuum can be very helpful. So the idea here is that we first inhibit those muscles that are working more than needed. This can be done through rolling, massaging or any other way to inhibit those muscles. After that, stretching that group of muscles would help the lengthening process. This will be followed by activating the musculature that have been working less than needed, and we can finally finish by integrating that motion into a more complex movement, so that the body can understand how to apply this new acquired knowledge.
