Stabilizers

When you squat, you’re using your legs – more specifically, your quads, glutes, hamstrings and hip flexors. And when doing shoulder press, your deltoids, traps, biceps and triceps. But what about all the other smaller muscles that go into stabilizing your hips, knees, torso, abdomen, and shoulders? What about the practically instantaneous micro-adjustments our neuro-muscular systems make constantly simply to keep our balance? We talk about them all the time in here, but it’s rare to see them in action. Here’s a video showing all the muscular activity going on in a handstand.
