The majority of the muscles used for pulling exercises make up what is known as the posterior chain. A posterior chain is a group of muscles predominantly comprised of tendons and ligaments along the back or posterior of the body, including the neck, back, hips, and legs.
Modern humans spend a lot of time seated during the day, which inhibits the use of the posterior chain muscles. The posterior chain is the primary mover for forwarding propulsion, including movements such as jumping, pushing, pulling, running, hopping, twisting, walking, squatting, bending, and even just getting in and out of a chair. Neglecting your posterior chain can negatively affect your posture, mobility, strength, and flexibility.
When this happens, your primary movers take a back seat while your stabilizing muscles do the big jobs. Which means your support system does all the heavy-duty work, which can lead to daily aches and pains in your back and neck. The best way to avoid this poor movement pattern is to add pulling exercises to your weekly workout routine. Play and improve your everyday movement and strength💪🏽
