Coracobrachialis; Too often Overlooked

Written by sgonnelli

Coracobrachialis, Illiopsoas, quadratus lumborum, levator scapula, piriformis, and multifidus  to name a few, are some of the smaller yet very important muscles that are overlooked, under worked or worked incorrectly and usually function improperly. So many people focus on the “show” muscles or the ones that may look good but forget about the important ones. For example most people doing strength training, guys especially, work on their chest, biceps, triceps, abdominals, shoulders, and some leg exercises if they are smart. They perform these exercises to pump up their muscles to look good and feel good but these muscles are more on the surface of our bodies. So in actuality they are building their muscles away from the center of their bodies making looks okay and function less and less optimal. The muscles and fascia lines that correspond to them get out of balance because they are being trained that way. When we train using the SYMMETRY TECHNIQUE we start with the deep myofascial (muscles and fascia) and work our way outward, optimizing function and reducing or eliminating pain.

When training using the Symmetry Technique we train all 4 of the myofascial arm lines, which helps to create balance and good posture to those that follow this technique. In the lower body we train the other 8 myofasciasl meridian creating balance and harmony throughout the body. The front and back myofascial meridians become balanced as well as the lateral lines, rotation lines, and the spiral line.

The Symmetry Technique trains all of the small muscles as well as the related myofascial meridians to become realigned using certain strength, flexibility, myofasscial release techniques and some hard core foam rolling. A balanced body on the outside is also balanced on the inside. This means that our organs and systems run much more harmoniously. Our body flows when it moves and our heart pumps strongly, our blood is cleaner and we have less pain or discomfort anywhere in our bodies. The only way to live.
